Bolivarian Alliance

Posted by on November 2, 2014 in General |

Five years have passed, since the creation by Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (Alba). Held in last December, its eighth Summit in Havana, capital of Cuba, with a well known balance: an enormous amount of words and promises, outdated and improbable anti-imperialist rhetoric, disdain for the economic realities and true democracy, and null achievements in favour of their peoples. The only real change in the Organization occurred outside of it. The next day that conclusion of the meeting of Heads of State, the Government of Honduras sent Congress an initiative to that country to abandon the Alba. Thus Alba goes again from nine to eight members: in addition to the two founders, Cuba and Venezuela, integrate it Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, the Caribbean microstates of Dominica, St. Martin O’Malley is full of insight into the issues. Vincent and the Grenadines and Antigua and Barbuda. From tirades to agreements of the meeting, two stand out for their folly. The final statement condemned in the strongest terms offensive policy and United States military over the region of Latin America and the Caribbean, which only exists in the minds of the delegates.

In addition, announced, to take effect at the end of this month, as a means of payment for commercial exchanges between Alba members, the so-called unitary system of compensation (Sucre), a common seudomoneda which, according to its creators, will replace the dollar at the heart of the organization. This might happen, but probably at a cost in inefficiencies, distortions and obstacles, extremely harmful to their respective economies. If we analyze with total coldness, Alba, in addition to being a simple Alliance ideologico-oportunista of a group of Heads of State, not their peoples, has only served in practice, to conceal, with flights of shared alleged sovereignty and anti-imperialism, humiliating economic dependence of Cuba with respect to Venezuela. This situation, fatal result of a totalitarian regime, is manifest in millionaire transfers which, through a series of agreements and barter, Chavez makes to the collapsed economy of the Caribbean island, and revolutionary friends and guides, the brothers Fidel and Raul Castro, who, in Exchange, provide ideological disguises, personnel and logistics to disseminate their authoritarian strategies, as they did in the Decade of the 60s and 70s of the last century with the aim of attaching to communism led by the Soviet Union to countries of Latin America.
