Sàon and Latin America (Jordi Molins) (John Eipper, USA, 01/01/06 8:22 am)

I wrote: Evo Morales of Bolivia has made his first foreign trip to Cuba, and he will go next to Spain, clearly at the invitation of the Spanish socialist government, which seems to want good relations with the Arab world and Latin America. Jordi Molins comments: Just one clarification: the invitation of the Spanish President to Evo Morales was based on two issues: on one hand, Spain is massively invested in Latin America, and Spanish presidents try to be in good terms with Latin American presidents. On the other hand, a few weeks ago there was a diplomatic problem between Spain and Bolivia: a humor program on a Spanish radio station entered into contact with Evo Morales, and the comedian tried to appear as if he were the Spanish President. He made fun of Evo Morales, and never said he was joking. When the Bolivians realized what had happened, they were furious. The invitation of Evo Morales in Spain would certainly have been issued, but the fact that it was so early was probably due to this diplomatic incident.

I would add that it is not possible that Spain joins the anti-American coalition in an eventual World War III. Probably I am biased because I tend to be pro-american, but the most extreme position of Spain would be neutrality. RH:Spain has long sought to be the intermediary between the Arab world and the West. The US does not view such neutrality with favor.
