Back to the Fore: Latin America

. Sunday, November 23, 2008

Very interesting article from the International Herald Tribune on the new (old) (maybe not so old) battle for influence in Latin America between the US, China and Russia. 

With the United States concentrating its resources and attention in the Middle East and Asia over the past eight years, China has expanded its trade and ties within Latin America. Russia is also scheming for influence in places like Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. This may be the strategic battleground over the next five to ten years as these three powers try to acquire ever more political and economic clout.
