With Milei: Argentina Betrays

With Milei: Argentina Betrays

Still unable to get his anti-people measures approved by Congress and facing general discontent even from many who blindly supported him at the polls, President Javier Milei violates the Constitution and hands over the sovereignty of Argentina to imperial entities such as Great Britain and the United States.

The disloyal treacherous act is so visible that some of its inexperienced halberdiers have begun to reverse in a process that until now has become unstoppable.

Not only did he “sympathize” with the British occupation of the Argentine Malvinas Islands, but it allowed the United States Army to control an important river network, strengthen its presence with enclaves in various parts of the territory and he is both pleased and consented to the presence of the main managers of the Southern Command and the Central Intelligence Agency.

As you can see, there are many things that are not questionable, but treacherous in a single paragraph.

Violating international resolutions, the English Foreign Minister David Cameron visited the Falkland Islands, stating that these are integral parts of the United Kingdom, which will build new ports there and extend the total closed radius for navigation and fishing to 170,000 square kilometers, to which the Milei government, ignoring the fair claim of sovereignty of its country, limited itself to expressing its satisfaction for his presence and said that it would receive him cordially if in the future he decided to pay a visit to Buenos Aires.

But not only in this does he abandon Argentine sovereignty, but he continues to strangle  the country hard, by handing over control of the most important waterway to the North American military.

This is stipulated in the agreement between the General Ports Authority (GPA) and the US Army Corps of Engineers, which from the Argentine side will be in charge of monitoring the Paraná-Uruguay Waterway, one of the largest freshwater basins in the world and where almost all gaucho exports pass through.


Undoubtedly, this is one more leap in Milei's absolute alignment with the United States, by enabling the installation of North American military personnel in the Waterway.

With a compendium of abstract phrases, the GPA reported that it is a process of joint collaboration in the exchange of information and management of the Waterway: "The agreement will allow for deepening the exchange of information between both managements, with the focus on efficiency and the implementation of new training in aspects of port and navigable waterway management.”

The pact was sealed by the GPA controller, Gastón Benvenuto; the Secretary of State Companies and Companies of the Chief of Staff of the Nation, Mauricio González Botto; the United States ambassador, Marc Stanley, and the representative of the US Corps of Engineers, Adrien McConnell.

Pagina12 reports that opposition leaders expressed their concern about the lack of transparency and the loss of sovereignty that it implies. The Santa Fe deputy Eduardo Toniolli remarked that the presence of officials from the Chancellery or the Ministries of Defense and Security was not reported, with the Prefecture being responsible for taking care of the Paraná River and the Gendarmerie for guarding the borders.

“Nor has a request for authorization been submitted to the National Congress for the entry of foreign troops into our country, as established by Law 25,880,” he added.

The argument used by the government to justify the pact is that the US Corps of Engineers manages the Mississippi River waterway and that it “shares many characteristics” with the Argentine route.

The truth is that the Waterway is the route through which more than 80% of Argentine exportable products (grains, flour and oils, among other products) leave, in a market that is mainly disputed by North American companies such as ADM, Bunge, Cargill, Dreyfus and the Chinese COFCO. “It’s known that the United States considers the Chinese presence as a threat to its national security and global competitiveness,” said Toniolli, who presented a draft resolution for the chief of staff Nicolás Posse to provide details of the agreement before Congress.

“It’s a really serious fact that deserves more explanations. It’s an agreement with a country that evidently seeks to increase its hemispheric influence over Latin America and involves a foreign armed force. “It clearly attacks national sovereignty in a strategic way from a geopolitical and economic point of view,” added former deputy Guillermo Carmona.

In terms of international security, the Waterway is also a motivation of attention due to the growth of drug trafficking. "It’s the main route through which the drugs that reach Europe pass," said the former head of the Argentine Agrarian Federation, Pedro Peretti.


With hardly any media notice, the head of the CIA, William Burns, arrived in Buenos Aires, where he met with Milei and local intelligence leaders to, as the Agency always does, help the specialization of the henchmen of the pro-North American regimes, including torture and disappearances.

This occurs after the announced visit of the head of the US Southern Command, Laura Richards, with the manifest goal of making the influence of China, Russia and Iran disappear.

The military chief will work on vital issues for Washington such as, among others, the regional geopolitical order and the exploitation of Argentine energy resources such as lithium, gas and oil.

The right-wing Clarín reported that Richardson would arrive in Buenos Aires on April 3 and that his agenda would focus "on the organization of a control system against China's deployment in the South Atlantic" and on evaluating the current situation of armed violence linked to drug trafficking activity in the port city of Rosario.

In addition, she was scheduled to meet with Minister of Defense, Luis Petri; the Minister of Security, Patricia Bullrich, and the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Xavier Isaac. With Milei, according to Clarín, the military chief of Joe Biden's Government could ask the Argentine president to weigh his opinions in favor of Donald Trump's candidacy for the US presidential elections, where both are rivals.

Recently, Richardson indicated that the US keeps good relations with Argentina, and that with the new Milei government, bilateral diplomacy has been strengthened and "doubled in positive terms."

"China's deep space installation in Argentina is a great concern for me as a soldier and because of what it does against allies and partners," said the head of the Southern Command at an event of the American organization Atlantic Council Front Page, where she added that Washington works with Buenos Aires on this matter.
