Death squads return to Latin America
Because they're ignorant of the history of US involvement in supporting death squads in Latin America for the last hundred years? Or maybe because they just repeat what other GOP morons on FOX tell them to.
Hardly matters, huh?
Remember: "These colors don't run the world."
1. Close the School of the Americas, which has been training some of the thugs who run the Latin American paramilitaries.
2. Stop providing military assistance to countries who use it to arm death squads.
3. End the involvement of the CIA in overseeing death squads.
All of these are factors in the violence in Latin America. In Guatemala, it was determined by an independent outside commission that 90% of the deaths of civilians were caused by government forces, which were trained, armed, and funded by the US.
MEC is correct. We definitely do *not* need to intervene. We need to leave those folks alone.
And I notice that once the facts come out, the anonymouses both lesser and greater creep away.
