    Latin America will be more important to us in the future than Europe or the Middle East. When will our leaders start acting like they realize that more often?

    All signs indicate that, for the foreseeable future, US foreign policy will continue to be dominated by Kissingerian thought:

    "Latin America is a dagger aimed straight at a block of ice (Antarctica)."

    Translation:

    The whole region is irrelevant in geopolitical terms.

    But the “real world” is Eurasia and Africa.

    What you have from Canada to Tierra del Fuego is a separate island.

    So Canada and Latin America are the natural spheres of influence for the US, since we are an island continent, geographically isolated from the rest of the world.

    The Orange Revolution in Ukaine ended with a pro russian politician as PM (Yanukovych).

    Ukraine was not able to fight its own geography not even in the short run so in the long run, Mr. Kissinger’s eurocentrism will not fare any better.
