I Have Come to Bury FTAA, Not to Praise It

Chavez arrived in Mar del Plata this morning and went to his hotel, Hotel República, outside the "Forbidden Zone". As he de-planed, Chavez thundered against Bush's FTAA [Free Trade Zone of the Americas] project : FTAA is dead and we are going to bury it here today. It is a hegemonal, imperialistic and neo-colonial agreement...Those who are determined send everything to hell will choose the path to capitalism and neoliberalism. But there are those like Venezuela who want a better world and we will look for another path to integration [of trade].

Meanwhile, Bush arrives in Argentina with the trappings and regalia of gringo emperors: An armed Marine color guard, military escort, imperial seals and banners, red carpets, an imperial helicopter, a chest of blue silk ties, armored limos and a phalanx of the Emperor's Personal Imperial Guard [Men in black].

NAFTA needs to be exposed for the greedy money grabbing plot it is. Living here in Mexico it is so obvious that it upsets balances that will stop it from ever being anything but oppressive. Your blog does a good job of showing these realities to those who want to know.

well i goofed up [and changed the title]. I meant to say, FTAA. But it amounts to the same thing--sending our jobs to China.
