Fight With The United States
The opportunistic attitude of Nestor Kirchner, that instead of thinking about long-term policies to establish solid structures that sustain the economy of his country, seeks to place patches with money borrowed from Venezuela to improve the situation of the moment with a view to the forthcoming general elections, can cause a move away from United States with sad consequences for the Argentina. His approach to the Venezuelan President, – for more than say that it is of a commercial character-, involves political commitments which at some point must be met. If not, Chavez would not give him a weight. So far the Argentine President has maintained good relations with the United States, but taking into account that: the friends of my enemies are my enemies, the links with the White House may change.
The Socialist heart of Kirchner is closer to Chavez than of Bush. The Argentine President is a great admirer of the autocratic Venezuelan expansionist politics. Fervently applauded the measures of Chavez and Morales, and his ancestor Peronist makes you want to stay at the Casa Rosada long enough as to which their children also are part of the ruling dynasty that you want to deploy with his wife. To strengthen his friendship with Chavez and sustain Morales, puts at risk the freedom and the South American peace. In January, during the recent clashes in Bolivia, his Government expressed solidarity with Evo and warned that: La Argentina will not remain idle if there is an armed confrontation in Bolivia who wants to overthrow President Morales. The Argentina and Bolivia have been traditionally linked. During the 1970s, the right-wing military of both countries established strong economic and political relations to the point that were arms of the Argentine army that were used in the 1971 coup to overthrow then dictator leftist Bolivian Juan Jose Torres, later murdered in Buenos Aires.
