    What an appropriate song on the day that the farcical voting is occurring in Honduras. And the ONLY countries that have said that they will recognized it are the US (of course) and its lap puppies Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Peru and the warmonger of the Mediterranean, Israel. Funny how the only Latin American Countries with US bases in them paying huge bribes to its oligarchs are going to recognize this sham. And Peru, what can you expect from a moron like Twobreakfasts?

    Who is the guy whose picture appears there?

  3. Manaat says:

    The pudgy face with a moustache and glasses (not Pinochet)

  4. Manaat says:

    If you compare the hair with the moustache you´ll notice that he dyes his moustache, but not the hair 🙂

  5. Manaat says:

    Nevermind. It’s Somoza Debayle. The face did look familiar, but couldn’t remember who it was.

  6. Ah, that’s who. I figured it must be him, since the person who made the video had lots of pro-FMLN slogans in there.

  7. Manaat says:

    FSLN. Although there are later appearances by Videla, Pope John Paul II, etc etc. That John Paul II foto has a history too: if you notice, there is a background with murals of Carlos Fonseca, who was the founder of FSLN. That was a visit made by the pope in the 80s to Managua where he rebuked the priests who were part of the FSLN govt.

  8. Of course. (facepalm) I keep getting the two mixed up.
    And how about that John Paul II! Talk about biting the hand of your host. What kind of manners are those?

  9. Manaat says:

    Yeah, that’s a famous one, where Ernesto Cardenal (who was FSLN’s culture minister) tried to kiss the Pope’s hand, and the latter withdrew it. Kinda mean, actually.

  10. Also kind of a sign of where he stood politically. Like all the hierarchy, he was with the oligarchs. So much for ministers not messing in politics…
