EU Social Democrats Urge Latin Americans To Act "Responsibly"

In other words we should dictate prices for your primary resources and other exports and our companies should be able to come and go as we please to plunder you like we have for 400 years. Moralist numero uno Tony Blair singles out the top trouble makers:

"Every country needs secure energy supply... Now I don't want to go into the details of what is happening in either Venezuela or Bolivia but I mean all of us have a responsibility to the world community to try to manage this sensibly," he said.

For all those who look to European social democracy as the light this warning is very telling. In the end these imperialists in crime serve similar interests as US capital and although rivals to US and Chinese capital want the same thing, profit at the expense of human needs.

I'll bet Bono and Jeff Sachs were there as consultants and cheerleaders.

It's seems to be time to go back and read Open Viens of Latin America by
Eduardo Galeano for some of that old time critique of capitalism.And some Michael Parenti to boot.
