If there is anyone that has no right toca demand that a participant keeps quiet at a Latin-American conference, that is the king of Spain, who is the only head of state present that has not been elected to office by anyone. If someone is right in their interventions at a Latin-American Conference, it is he who accuses the fascist Aznar and denounces the imperialist voraciousness of the Spanish companies in Latin America.
Regarding Aznar, it is sufficient to remember his complicity with Bush and his pleasure flights in the planes belonging to the Miami mafia boss that organizes terrorist outrages in Cuba, and supported him in his electoral campaigns. Against King Juan Carlos, it would be sufficient to ask him why he has never asked the king of Morocco to keep silent every time he shows his dictatorial lineage. Regarding the Spanish trans-nationals, it would only be necessary to remind them that the only reason they are able to carry out their business in Latin America is because of the complicity of the governments that privatized the companies they bought at knock-down prices and with the guarantee of captive markets. Against Zapatero's attitude we can say that it is very clear that he prefers mending fences with Bush rather than helping to facilitate the new and authentic integration of Latin America.
Who has told the Bourbon son of a Franco that he has the authority to try to shut up a Latin-American president that has been ratified by his electorate on many occasions? Why is Zapatero dropping himself in the shit by defending the fascist Aznar instead of collaborating with the new Latin American insurgency?
By checking any newspaper archive it can be demonstrated that Aznar's government and the CEOE (the Spanish Businessmen Confederation) were accomplices to the United States in the coup d'état against Chávez. And it can also be proved that the big mass media outlets that applauded the coup had to retreat, embittered when legality was reestablished in the country.
Did the king of Spain ask the Venezuelans that took part in the coup attempt to be quiet? Why don't you shut up, Juan Carlos?
