From people who have lived through the nightmare:
It would seem that George Orwell’s “1984” is now at hand; that Bush is aiming to outdo Chile’s Gen. Augusto Pinochet, who also justified his assault on the human rights of Chileans in the higher name of a “war on terrorism.”In case you missed it, neighbouring Bolivia this week elected its first indigenous President, Evo Morales, who calls Bush a "terrorist".
The slippery slope that Bush has embarked upon leads to a police state, plain and simple...
Popular left-wing governments now hold power in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and Venezuela - take a look at a map - there's not much else down there in South America! One day somebody is going to have to clean up the foreign policy disasters of the Bush administration. We've come a long, long way since those global outpourings of post-9/11 sympathy, haven't we?
