22-10-2019: Once upon a time the South America; the analysis of President Bonsi and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Costantini Picardi about a subcontinent too often forgotten.
President Bonsi, together with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Costantini Picardi, a studious and expert in politics and economics of the South American countries, analyze these countries at a very critical moment for the American sub-continent.
President Bonsi begins the analysis: “South America has been for many decades the great dream for the Europeans who were seeking their fortune in this vast subcontinent.
Today, unfortunately, South America is almost forgotten both by the rest of the world and by the media and is no longer of any interest.
Yet today South America, which has 12 states and 385,000,000 inhabitants, is a very dangerous powder keg that is in danger of exploding, involving the entire world economy.
Apart from the very small States (Suriname and Guyana), Paraguay and Uruguay, the other States are all affected by a serious political crisis, some even on the verge of a real civil war.
Argentina, a favorite destination for European immigration several decades ago, is now experiencing a new state of economic recession.
The country’s economy is again disastrous and risks repeating the serious bankruptcy of 2001, with a default that today would reach one hundred and ten billion dollars.
The State is making incredible efforts, but the situation is very critical.
The Government has imposed various limits on the movement of capital, to keep inflation under control; the Argentines will no longer be able to freely change the national currency, the pesos, in foreign currency, while limits have been imposed on the possibility of transferring funds outside the country.
If Argentina cries, Brazil does not laugh.
The South American giant has not found the much-hoped-for change of course in President Bolsonaro’s policy.
His Government is divided and quarrelsome, has no majority in Parliament and has a very low level of satisfaction.
Today the Country is prey to an absurd building speculation that is devastating the Amazon forest, creating serious problems for the entire planet.
The choice of Bolsonaro is strongly opposed and the dissatisfaction of the people is undermining the political stability of the Country.
A State that is already on the brink of civil war is Venezuela; the struggle between Nicolás Maduro, President elected with electoral fraud and recognized by some States, and Juan Guaidó, President self-proclaimed and recognized by others, is inflaming the minds of the people who now live in a police state with arrests, injuries and deaths.
Pending progress in the negotiations between Maduro and Guaidó, after the failure of the Norwegian government’s attempt to mediate, the Venezuelan people continue to suffer from the lack of basic necessities, runaway inflation and very high crime and violence”.
Minister Costantini Picardi continues the analysis: “The other States also live in a situation of great economic and political uncertainty.
A few days ago, Chile experienced a dramatic situation: hundreds of thousands of people poured into the city streets to protest against the poverty in which Chilean citizens find themselves.
In Santiago, the capital, there were very violent clashes with dead and wounded.
The Government has effectively surrendered power to the army, which decreed the total curfew with the suspension of the person’s freedoms.
It is the first time since Pinochet that such violent and extensive contrasts have been seen.
Ecuador is experiencing a moment of great tension: thousands of people, mostly indigenous, have been protesting against the Government of President Moreno for several days now.
Clashes with police forces have caused several deaths and hundreds of wounded, in addition to at least 450 arrests.
There are numerous cases of looting in the cities.
In the Country a state of emergency has been in force since October 3rd and on October 11th the executive decided to militarize services in the capital Quito.
At the base of the protests is the austerity plan launched by President Moreno, which is now bringing citizens to their knees.
In Bolivia, the presidential elections have become a real struggle between outgoing President Morales and rival Mesa.
The Electoral Court attributed the victory to Morales in the first round, with an incredible turn of events in the vote count.
There have been demonstrations and incidents throughout the country.
The Organization of American States (OAS) has defined the change of trend in the electoral results as inexplicable, such as to generate the total loss of confidence in the electoral process.
In Colombia the nightmare of the armed struggle is back: the FARC have broken the peace (with the protection of the Venezuelan President Maduro).
The FARC (acronym of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People’s Army) are a communist guerrilla organization of Colombia, of Marxist-Leninist and Bolivarian inspiration, founded in 1964.
Furthermore, drug trafficking is recovering vigor, protected by paramilitary forces.
Citizens are thus involved in a war that sees the Colombian government, the FARC and the paramilitary armies of drug traffickers as contenders.
Finally, Colombia is undergoing the silent invasion of Venezuelan refugees, who are trying to escape the grave political crisis.
Peru is experiencing a serious political crisis: President Vizcarra has dissolved Parliament, which in turn has suspended the President.
Vizcarra accuses the Parliament, in the hands of the Fujimorist opposition, of obstructing its fight against corruption.
In response, the legislative body suspended the Head of State for one year and appointed deputy, Mercedes Araoz, who took the oath.
Now the country is in a political stalemate.
President and Government cry to the coup and the people begin to protest violently in the cities.
This is therefore the situation in South America”.
President Bonsi concludes the analysis: “The International Community intervenes only sporadically and the UN, as usual, moves with the speed of a sloth, more careful not to break the various political balances than to act as a force of peace.
Furthermore, the United Nations is experiencing an unprecedented financial crisis, which could lead to the exhaustion of funds by the end of December (the news was published in various newspapers), it appears for the fault of many defaulting Member States.
The Secretary General Antonio Guterres has officially announced that from the month of November the payment of the salaries of the employees and some operations of peace forces could be at risk”.
“I wish all of you, dear fellow citizens of the Templar Nation, my best wishes for a happy and serene New Year, wherever you are”.
