The Human Caravan Marches on. Thousands of Troop’s are to protect the US border. The Election losses send Trump into turmoil. Trump has begun to clamp down on Central American Countries.
The Human Caravan Marches On
Cocaine, Gangs, Wars, Governments
Living in Guatemala offers a different point of view then the world media has portrayed the The Human Caravan to be. The media has thrived on suggesting numerous conspiracy theories.
The people heading towards the US Border are individuals running from a hell created by the demand for Cocaine by the US, distribution Gangs, controlled by Cartels and Governments who have failed in the war on drugs.
The U.S. CIA reports that a majority of the cocaine in the U.S. shipped from Colombia through Mexico and the Caribbean. The CIA estimates that Americans spend nearly $35 billion a year on cocaine.
Guatemala Civil War
Mr. Clinton’s apology was an admission that the Guatemalan military had not acted alone. American support for Guatemalan security forces that had engaged in “violent and widespread repression,” the president said “was wrong.”
The Guatemalan Civil War ran from 1960 to 1996. The government forces of Guatemala have been condemned for committing genocide against the Maya population of Guatemala during the civil war and for widespread human rights violations against civilians.
In Honduras, efforts to establish guerrilla movements foundered on the generally conservative attitude of the population. Nevertheless, fears that the civil wars wracking its neighbors might spread to the country led to the killings and disappearances of leftists, spearheaded by the army’s Battalion 316.
Nicaragua is finished. The Ortega Government ran out of money to control the country. The loss of an Oil deal with Venezuela with 20 Year payment terms left the corrupt leader with no money.
The US has spent or wasted billions attempting to stabilize relations within these countries. Agriculture exports feeding the food Giants like Dole and Chiquita. Corruption at the Government level is a word you will hear from the voices of the people from Central America.
In a fleeting moment, the Country of Guatemala stood up and said enough. President Otto Perez and his Vice President arrested and removed from power.
5,000 troops at a Boarder will create little fear in the souls on the Human Caravan heading to the US. Look what they are leaving behind.
