I agree 100% Robert!!! Airdale, I think I see where you were coming from and can't say I totally blame you, because we do give a lot of aid around the world. However, politicians like Obama deserve all the negatives they get. And I don't care who is saying it. I'm just happy we have some guys like Lone Wolf and Antonio out past our borders that actually know what's going on and can see past the media snow screen. I hear some foreigners comment on some of our politicians and I want to puke. But these two have it pegged and I agree with their assessment totally.

Airdale, LATAM has some of the fastest growing economies going on as we speak. Many countries are making HUGE efforts on behalf of the welfare of their people. Many companies are also making huge contributions to better the life in this region. My company sponsors over 250,000 children in LATAM so they can get an education. Huge companies in the USA are tripping all over each other to start doing business in places that a few years ago you needed a body guards just to get out of the airport. I know this as a fact, my company is making a boatload of money out of this nifty trend. Hell China should be more worried about Brazil than us... And as far as drugs are concerned, plenty of them being grown in the forests in the good ol' US.
We live in a global economy where the well being of the USA has deep repercussions all over the world. Antonio might have been unkind toward our president but who amongst us has not made a derogatory remark about a foreign leader. I'm not apologizing (and I read no other post doing so either) for our politics, foreign policy etc. The USA is a great country but we are not perfect and the day we loose the will to listen and learn, we die. Besides when we wrote the Bill of Rights there is no mention in there of the first amendment being an American Right. As a matter of fact many of our citizens have died fighting so other countries can enjoy these God given rights too.

There is a clear pattern emerging in US history in which Democrats get stuck cleaning up the messes of incompetent Republicans, set the country back on the path to success only to be blamed for the short term pain resulting from tough decisions they had to make to fix they mess they inherited.

Speaking of which the wife and I are talking about doing exactly that next year (what would you recommend as a good month to visit?). I have a good friend from grad school who's teaching at a university in Lima and I want to visit him. The wife also really wants to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
