The political and diplomatic ineptitude with which unfolds the Casa Rosada and its Chancery is Ripley. The Argentina never lost so much political space from Kirchner and his troupe took power. Obama will visit for the first time Central and South America and land only in Brazil, Chile and El Salvador. Cristina Kirchner and Hector Timerman feel offended the indifference towards their country, so that a high official of the Argentine Foreign Ministry said that it will be difficult for the United States to explain why Obama will fly by Argentine heaven to go from Brazil to Chile and will not scale in the Argentina. I do not think that it is a good sign.
Locate us. United States has not held accountable for their actions to anyone, but out of courtesy, the diplomatic and eloquent statement of Obama was that he doesn’t want to visit countries that are in electoral processes. Since Barack and Hillary don’t have time to explain in detail to the Argentine dignitaries something that is impossible to understand for them, I will try to clarify some points. The State Department is not by chance that is called not Department of Foreign Affairs and Department of State. As its name indicates, the State Department is in charge of the policy of State of the United States, which is uniform, consistent and continuous, regardless of who is occupying the White House.
Their primary objectives are purely designed depending on the security of the United States and its citizens. That means: preserving regional stability; planning and implementing counter-terrorism actions; prevent the manufacture and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; fight against international crime and drug trafficking; and to protect its citizens abroad. It’s not like the ministries of foreign third world whose function is to appoint inoperative diplomats in payment for the economic favors received from them in their election campaigns, who later engaged in social relationships, changing friends according to the whims and ideology of the current Government.
