It seems that over the past few years, the United States relationship with countries in South America has been drastically diminished. With the likes of Venezuela and now Bolivia "hating" on the United States, how will this effect the surounding countries? Paraguay just elected in a new President who seems to hold his cards close to his chest on which way he will go (see article linked). Which way will he slide off to? Also, Brasil seen as the "Big Brother" of South America, will the start to take the reigns in making amends with America or goining in the hatred?
I know that the United States has done a lot to maybe provoke some of this stuff or maybe just people being misleaded but this is starting to turn into something very interesting seeing Latin America being put into the same categories as those of East Asia (Iran, Iraq a few years back).
What are your thoughts?
