This is a reminder to the people of La Patria Grande in Latin America, when you listen to the United States who are fighting for “democracy”, please do not fall for their lies, they do everything for their own interests.
The head of the United States Southern Command, Laura Richardson, explained this Thursday in conversation with the Atlantic Council ‘think tank’ why Washington really cares about Latin America.
“Why is this region important? With all its rich resources and rare earth elements, you have the lithium triangle, which is needed for technology today. 60% of the world’s lithium is in the lithium triangle: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile,” Richardson said.
According to the military chief, another important reason turns out to be the concentration of “the largest oil reserves”, including those of “light and sweet crude discovered off Guyana more than a year ago”. “You also have the resources of Venezuela, with oil, copper, gold,” the general continued, also highlighting the importance of the Amazon, “the lungs of the world.”
On the other hand, “we have 31% of the world’s fresh water in this region,” she added, concluding that the US has “a lot to do” and that “this region matters.” “It has a lot to do with national security and we have to start our game,” she said.
Referring to national security, Richardson mentioned her “number two adversary” in Latin America, “Russia”, indicating that Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua have relations with Moscow.
