Mexico Verges on Revolution as Brazilian Military Forces Prepare to Repel US, Foreign Invasion

Troubling reports have reached us today from the Americas today showing that Mexico is verging on revolution and that Brazil is preparing its Military Forces to repel an invasion from the United States, and other foreign powers, from its Amazon forest region.

From the Planet Ark Environmental News Service we can read in their article titled "Brazil Army Worries Foreign Powers May Eye Amazon", about this concern, and which says, "[T]he ultimate concern of Brazilian military strategists is that one day they might end up fighting a foreign power for control of the Amazon. "The threats today are diverse. (One is) a superior military power to us and we have a strategy to resolve this," said Gen. Claudio Barbosa de Figueiredo, army commander for the Amazon region.

"The internationalisation of the Amazon is one of the worries that takes us to this strategy of defence in relation to signs from big countries, not just the United States but also Europe," Gen. Figueiredo said. "We must be prepared. After all, the Brazilian Amazon is Brazilian." In 2003, top government aide Jose Dirceu said: "If the United States occupies Colombia, it will occupy the Amazon."

These concerns of the Brazilian Leaders are apparently justified, and as we can read as reported by the Progressive News Service in their article titled “Stop the War on Columbia”, and which states, "Colombia is the next El Salvador. Torn by civil war, it is quickly becoming another chapter in the ignominious tome of U.S. meddling in Latin America. Today, U.S. policy toward Colombia is almost exactly at the same spot where U.S. policy toward El Salvador was in 1980: U.S. military aid to a brutal government is increasing dramatically; U.S. "advisers" are on the ground, "professionalizing" the armed forces; U.S. officials are sharing "intelligence" with a military that has one of the worst human rights records in the hemisphere."

Since the writing of those words, 1999, the United States has continued to pour into this region massive amount of military equipment and resources, but not to the benefit of the people of Columbia, and as we can read as reported by the UN News Centre in their report titled "Colombia has biggest humanitarian crisis in Western Hemisphere", and which says, "Though kidnapping and assassination have declined in Colombia, the humanitarian situation has worsened, with 2 million people becoming displaced over the past 15 years and 1 million of those made homeless in the last three or four years alone, the United Nations chief of humanitarian relief said today.

The South American country had the world's third largest internally displaced population, after the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Sudan, but it was a largely forgotten crisis, Jan Egeland, head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told journalists at UN Headquarters in New York."

As the peoples of Iraq, Afghanistan and other world countries know, the Axis Power United States does not hesitate to invade those countries that it deems as vital to its material well being, no matter the cost in human suffering or the breaking of International laws. But not to democracy or freedom either do they truly seek, these are only the words that they behind, and as we can see from the current events happening in Mexico.

From the Arizona State University News Service in their article titled "Mexico's uncertain future poorly covered", we can read, “We interrupt your normal media routine for a special news bulletin. While most of our country's attention was focused on the death of the Pope, the Michael Jackson trial and the start of the Major League Baseball season, the most important news story of last week unsurprisingly received very little press.

Corruption. Chaos. Lunacy. A country run by wolves, pigs and thieves. The nation south of the border is in a complete state of madness -- and we ain't seen nothin' yet. If you are unaware of what's going on in Mexico City, you need to continue reading. Late last week, the Mexican Congress revoked the immunity of popular Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, paving the way toward the mayor's imprisonment and (more than likely) forcing his name off the ballot for next year's presidential election.

The move to strip Lopez Obrador of his immunity was spearheaded by Mexican President Vicente Fox (a member of the conservative National Action Party who -- along with the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) -- combine for the majority of the seats in the Mexican Congress). Fox and fellow Lopez Obrador critics point to the fact that the mayor ignored a 2001 federal court order. They say no one should be above the law.

The court order in question? The mayor failed to stop construction of a hospital access road. That's right, the mayor wanted to make it easier for traffic coming in and out of a hospital in the world's largest city. And now, four years later and an election around the corner, a minor land dispute suddenly has become a major Mexican firestorm.”

From the American Anti-War Journalist, Justin Raimondo, in his article titled "Forget Iraq: Mexico may be our next big problem" , we can further read about these events, "When a supposedly fixed election in distant Kyrgyzstan did not meet the "democratic" standards of either the U.S. government or the European Union, it was time for yet another color-coded Western-financed "revolution." When Eduard Shevardnadze ceased to be useful to the U.S., a "Rose Revolution" bloomed in Georgia. In Ukraine, where electoral politics is subject to more manipulation than even Chicago or Brooklyn, the necessity of U.S. intervention – in the form of millions in grants to opposition groupings – was self-evident to U.S. government officials.

Mexico, however, is a different matter altogether. The "global democratic revolution" announced by President Bush in a 2003 speech to the National Endowment for Democracy – and since reinforced by word and deed – apparently stops south of the U.S.-Mexican border. In a blatant move to disqualify Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador from the presidential sweepstakes – he's ahead in the polls by a wide margin – the Mexican Congress has voted to strip Lopez of his immunity from prosecution and arrest him on a minor procedural issue: an act that effectively kicks him off the ballot."

More importantly for the world though are these words Mr. Raimondo has written in this article, "Far from exporting "democracy," the U.S. government is building an Empire on which the sun never sets: a network of bases, U.S. government-financed NGOs, and compliant client regimes that will provide launching pads for further expansion."

Not since the Nazi German Empire of the 1930’s and the former Soviet Union of the 1940’s has the world seen such an aggressive pursuit for total world domination. Most strangely of all is that the American people themselves fail to act to thwart their Military Leaders and continue to accept their loss of freedoms, restrictions of travel and crushing war debts.

Even to continued warnings from both within and without their borders they still fail to heed. As history has shown however, and to which those who lived under the Nazi Germans and Soviet Empire can testify, not towards freedom are these Westerners marching themselves, but instead towards their gulags and concentration camps will most of their lives be directed to.

Little do these Americans know that even now their country has become the largest nation of the prisoners the world has ever known. Even more less known to these poor Americans is the fate that awaits them once they enter the prison camps, and perhaps best stated by Prison Activist Organization in the United States, and who state:

"The Prison Industrial Complex is more than prisons and the businesses and transnational corporations which profit by building, running, and supplying prisons, and by employing prisoners. The PIC may be thought of as the entire apparatus of internal state repression, which includes increasingly militarized police forces, the National Guard, private security forces, and the traditional military branches when they are used to put down civil unrest.

It includes repressive laws, obscenely long sentences, state executions, judges who hand down discriminatory sentences along racial and political lines, and mandatory minimum sentencing laws which remove even the option of compassionate sentencing. It includes the anti-democratic activities of the FBI and the CIA: civil surveillance, infiltration of grassroots movements, assassination. It includes an expanding prison culture: cop shows, court TV, films which glamorize or trivialize prison life."

As the prison bars continue to descend around these American peoples, so must our warnings continue….even if to the saving of one life from the barbarities soon to face them will these efforts of ours, and others, have been justified.
