With most U.S. troops supposedly on the verge of leaving the dubious new Afghan regime to stand (or crumble) largely on its own, the Communist Chinese dictatorship is stepping in to fill the void and reap the benefits — with the full support of the Obama administration. From providing authorities in Kabul with “security” assistance and foreign aid to investing in its economic development via oil and mining, Beijing has big plans for Afghanistan.

After “former” communist-guerrilla leader Dilma Rousseff narrowly secured reelection in Brazil last week with an alleged 51 percent of the vote, Obama promptly picked up the phone to congratulate her. According to the White House, Obama promised an even stronger “bilateral relationship” with the deeply controversial regime — packed with self-declared communists — that the U.S. government knows full well is at the center of the ongoing socialist takeover of Latin America. At the same time, a petition on Obama’s “We The People” page was asking Obama to position himself “against the Bolivarian communist expansion in Brazil promoted by the administration of Dilma Rousseff.” Despite surpassing the necessary 100,000-signature threshold required for the White House to issue a response, Obama has ignored it so far.

Depois que a “ex”-comunista-líder guerrilheira Dilma Rousseff garantiu a reeleição do Brasil por um fio de cabelo na última semana, com supostos 51 por cento dos votos, Obama prontamente pegou o telefone para lhe dar os parabéns. Segundo a Casa Branca, Obama prometeu “relações bilaterais” ainda mais fortes com tão controverso regime — lotado de comunistas assumidos — que o governo dos EUA sabe muito bem que está no centro da tomada de poder pelos socialistas na América Latina.
