    No more puppets in Mexico

    Exoplanet, over at Deficient Brain informs us of Mexico's presidential front frunner pledging to return to non interventionist policies, if he wins the upcoming election:

    That'll change, Lopez Obrador signaled to a crowd estimated between 70,000 and 120,000. Having led public opinion polls for two years, Lopez Obrador is on track to become Mexico's first president elected from a left-wing party, the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD). "We're not going to meddle in the internal life of other peoples and other governments, because we don't want them meddling in ours," Lopez Obrador told a sea of supporters in the Zocalo, the city square that Spanish conquistadors built atop Aztec ruins.

    Well, that certainly sounds like a good idea. All over latin America, the people are turning away from interventionism, they don't want to follow the US. Yes, Bush, look at them waving down there in Latin America at you, and your lot haven't been able to do a damn thing about it because you've been pre-occupied. Well, I guess at least while Bush has sent his crusaders into the middle east, Latin America is safe for the moment. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
