Interview to the Director of Dossier Geopolitico, Carlos Pereyra Méle by El Megáfono Net.
The political analyst describes the current situation of the conflicts that Argentina is going through and its relationship with the world. Ensures that international relations determine national policies. In this context, he criticizes the alignment of Argentina with United States guidelines.
– What is the current situation of our country in relation to the world powers?
-The first thing we have to understand is that Argentina today has no sovereignty, diplomatic, or political or economic. It has made a total and absolute alignment to regional policies following the dictates of Washington, that is why we integrate the Lima Group, that is why we have dismantled UNASUR, that is why we have boycotted MERCOSUR, that is why we are not present in any serious international forum, we participate in Davos very laterally. Argentina lacks a serious foreign policy.
-How do you characterize the current Government?
This is a government of absolute dependence and has decided so. Of course it has a whole media apparatus that confuses, hides and defigures reality. Nowadays when we speak in any country in the world they say Argentina does not exist.
– Is there a dispute over natural resources? – – – – The issue of natural resources we have seen reflected in the “best cabinet of the last 50 years”. Because the energy sector was handed over to Shell, the agricultural sector was handed over to Monsanto, and so on, it is clear that the State has been privatized and therefore the decisions that those managers are going to make, because that’s their function, it is that of managers, not owners of the companies. The manager is to enforce profits and receive orders from a board of directors and if the board sees that the manager does not serve he changes it as soon as the balance ends because he did not reach the objectives set.
– How do we see that?
-We see it in what is being talked about Vaca Muerta issue. Beyond the ecological damage that we know is occurring and that we are going to pay as a consequence, there is the deeper issue, which is that we have given a national patrimony that is from the State to multinational corporations, and those groups are benefiting and will continue to benefit. The problem is, we gave up those benefits to the companies, and the inventory of our benefits? Where is it? It does not exist.
-Which are they current conflicts?
-Of course, the United States raises the flag of the conflict for the Chinese aerospace control base in Patagonia, but it really is a secondary conflict. What today must worry the Argentines is the following frame: a week and a half ago in Regiment 1 of Patricios there was a meeting led by the US Ambassador and the Ambassador of Israel, organized by the lobbyist Mario Montoto, who is the representative of the Argentine-Israeli Chamber of Commerce and fundamentally is a supplier of arms for all of South America. In this framework of symbolism the “issue” was the problem of the triple frontier. A problem that does not exist in reality came back to light. These groups suggest that there are international terrorism problems accompanied by drug trafficking, contraband is something older than injustice.
A new conflict is prepared for us. In the framework of which Argentina lacks Defense, it lacks Armed Forces, it lacks Intelligence Services. and also in a place that is false because that place is monitored since the attacks to the twin towers, 2001, by large Argentine, Brazilian, Paraguayan and North American intelligence groups that control that region and could not discover anything in 18 years. They are inventing a non-existent conflict for the press and for the people.
-What is the objective with the creation of these conflicts?
-It is the tool used by the United States for the control of natural resources throughout South America. Not only the access to the Guarani aquifer resource, but also to control Brazil from the south, to control Bolivia, which has one of the largest lithium reserves in the world along with Argentina. The Bolivian lithium is being administered by the Bolivian State, in joint operations with foreign companies, but the Bolivian State administers the specific destiny of the profits and the administration of the benefits of that, something that does not happen on the Argentine side. They also see it as a fledgling conflict. Because the North American policy for this territory of the south is of absolute control to be able to compete for all these resources that we possess with its main rival, which is China . They want to be the intermediaries, we have the product, they sell it, they quote it and they receive the benefits. We have the poisoning of the land, we lose the resources because they aren’t renewable and we continue to be producers of raw materials, without any benefit or increase in the quality of our life.
