BAD ENOUGH PINOCHET, TRUJILLO AND THE CONTRAS WON:

Bush urges Colombia trade accord (BBC, 12/04/07)

President George W Bush has called on Congress to pass a controversial free trade deal with US ally Colombia to help promote regional stability.

Some Congress members are opposed, citing concerns over workers' rights.

Mr Bush suggested the deal could help counter the influence of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, with whom both the US and Colombia have difficult relations.


Except the left loves Hugo and despises successful conservative regimes in Latin America.
