Failure in Cartagena

Latin America no longer accepts US bullying and dominance.

by Stephen Lendman

On April 14 and 15, Cartagena, Columbia hosted the Sixth Summit of the Americas (SOA). Obama came, participated, and left empty-handed.

How different things were in three 1990s summits. James Petras calls the decade "the golden age of pillage." That was then. This is now.

America's imperial arrogance makes more enemies than friends. It also weakens influence. Ravaging the world one country at a time doesn't help. Neither does bullying nations to go along or else.

Summit theme this year was "Connecting the Americas: Partners for Prosperity." Latin American nations have different visions than Washington. They no longer accept being "America's backyard." 

Perhaps Obama got the message, perhaps not. Others were delivered earlier. So will more from nations worldwide. Does he listen? His actions belie his rhetoric.
