Sexism and Machismo: the Attitude to Women in Latin America

The wars in Southeast Asia during the 1960s and 1970s were obviously American attempts to recolonize that region. The USA pledged to France that it would help them recover their colonial lands after World War II was finished. Regarding the UK and France, the “help” that the USA gave them was more on the order of elbowing them out of the way to grab the plunder for themselves, as the UK experienced when the USA helped them keep , but took over Iran’s oil industry in the process. Ho Chi Minh was an American ally during World War II who helped battle the Japanese. As the colonial era witnessed numerous times, the new whites on the scene spouted impressive rhetoric about helping the local people become or stay free; in reality, they came to be the new overlords, and it was no different with Vietnam. When World War II was finished, Vietnam declared itself independent, free from two millennia of foreign domination. It did not last long, however, and the Allies even used Japanese troops immediately after the war ended to try recolonizing Vietnam. By 1954, the Vietnamese defeated a weak French recolonizing effort (even with American help), and were on the brink of independence, but the USA then manipulated the situation and put a puppet, Ngo Dinh Diem, in charge in Vietnam and cut it in half and sabotaged efforts for Vietnamese independence and unification. The CIA assassinated Diem in late 1963, to John Kennedy’s surprise, and he followed Diem to the grave a few weeks later (they were quite possibly ), and Lyndon Johnson’s administration immediately began manipulating the Vietnam War into existence. Even Dwight Eisenhower admitted that there would have been only one Vietnam during the 1950s if the USA had not actively scuttled the Vietnamese election called for by the United Nations.
South American Political Geography
There are also other challenges. One of the most important of these is infrastructure. Willis reports that Latin America will have to invest about 9% of its GDP in infrastructure every year from now until 2020 inclusive in order to eliminate the gap between it and South-East Asia. During the period 2007 to 2009, Latin America invested only 2% of GDP in infrastructure. (Although, to re-emphasise, South America and Latin America are far from identical, these figures are still suggestive.) In Chile, it has been officially calculated that the country will need an additional 8 000 MW of electricity-generating capacity over the next eight years, to support industrial (which will include mining) expansion. But independent analysts expect only 2 300 MW will be built and come on line in that time.
