Trump is gone, Biden has just arrived, but the U.S. military strategy for Latin America keeps the show on. It also acquires renewal tones, because it continues with the same objective of domination.
"Stability" is still the watchword or part of the U.S. speech to justify its intervention in the sovereignty of the states, a fact that in the southern Latin American countries has only had an encounter in Venezuela, because in other nations, regardless of the kind of government, it still penetrates, by increasing its armed forces and military sites.
Hence, the Southern Command policy prevails to provide training courses, mechanisms to "share information", equipment and technological assistance, as well as infrastructure, which benefit U.S. companies devoted to the field of security.
Besides, it controls intelligence and operational issues to allegedly combat drug trafficking and terrorism, "always respecting human rights."
It’s remarkable how little this has spread in the public opinion, quotes the Argentine researcher Silvina Romano, a natural submission of armed forces, of "friendly countries" to those of the United States, in a context that reminds the activities of counterinsurgency, forced disappearances, paramilitary operations, etc., between 1950’s and 1980’s.
