Fidel Castro has accused Barack Obama of sinister intentions towards Latin America. The retired Cuban leader is convinced the US is plotting to overthrow left-wing governments in the region.
The finger-pointing comes as Venezuela accepts a new shipment of Russian arms. Eva Golinger, a Venezuelan-American attorney, says this is an indication that Caracas sees a tangible threat from the US.
Golinger told RT that “a military agreement currently taking place between Columbia and the United States involves the US occupation of more than seven military bases in Columbia.”
“We are seeing the largest US military expansion in Latin America,” she added. “Official US documents have revealed that the US is planning and preparing for military operations involving the entire Latin American region to be launched from these bases in Columbia.”
