Let us tend to our own gardens

23 April 2013

On Wednesday, the American Secretary of State, John Kerry, called Latin America the “back yard” of the United States.

During a speech before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives, and following the old Monroe Doctrine, regardless of the sovereignty of Latin American countries, Kerry considers these countries as their “back yard” and added that plans are being made to change the attitude of some of these nations.

… which I guess means we’re in the garden, minding our own business, and the USA is out on the street.

Kerry is making a good start for being the most asinine Secretary of State to issue statements on Latin America since, oh, at least Hillary Clinton.  Who needs to change their attitude, dude?
