NATO invades Latin America

NATO is implementing a plan of aggressive expansion into the territory of Latin America and the Caribbean, according to the Pressenza news agency.

At the end of last year, the US had 12 military bases in Panama, 12 in Puerto Rico, nine in Colombia, three in Honduras, and two in Paraguay. Objects of this type are located in Aruba, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Cuba (Guantanamo).

In the territorial waters of Argentina and the Falkland (Malvinas) Islands, which were usurped by Great Britain, NATO is present at bases on the islands of Asension, Santa Elena and Tristan da Acuña and controls the entire Atlantic from north to south.

Since May 2022, the UK has been forming a “strategic control triangle” over the southern tip of South America, according to a Pentagon report cited by the Venezuelan website Misión Verdad. Nuclear submarines operate south of the Falklands. Moreover, "France and the United States regularly conduct joint military exercises in the region."

Over the past few years, and especially since the arrival of General Laura Richardson as head of the US Southern Command in October 2021, the level of aggressive intervention by Washington in the region has increased dramatically, the newspaper writes.

This coincided with the rise to power of Joe Biden, who began to pursue an active policy of replacing the traditional leading role of the US State Department in diplomacy with the role of the Pentagon, the National Security Council and even the CIA. An increasing number of officials from these bodies are serving as ambassadors to Latin America and the Caribbean.
