Argentina to Host Russian Military Bases While America Sleeps

Argentina, South America’s second largest country, has agreed to host Russian military bases on the South American continent. Long a political ally of militant Islam, Argentina seeks to bring economic relief to the region. Argentina, and its close ally, Venezuela, have long been on friendly terms with Iran and this latest move opens the door to another political foe of the United States.

While the world — and the US — have been fixated on the events happening in Ukraine, the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has been inking deals with leaders in Latin America. First discussed by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in February, Putin intends to set up arm forces units and increase munitions sales in the Latin American realm.

Moscow’s plan comes on the heels of a recent statement from Iran involving the patrolling of waters off of the American coast. Russia and Iran have sited their reasons as being the increased US military presence near their borders. The US has urged the stretching of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to push up against the Russian perimeter.

The formation of indefinite Russian bases and a strong Russian existence in the Western Hemisphere will be a challenge to US policies and will diminish Washington’s influence. With South America in Russia’s good graces, the country will have a base to coordinate and store offensive weapons, putting another challenge in place for US homeland defenses.

America has never had sufficient missile defenses along its southern borders and cannot adequately defend against any missile strike coming from the south. Additionally, Russia has been sending missile bearing nuclear submarines to the South Hemisphere for 3 years.

Experts, including former Strategic Defense Initiative Director Henry Cooper, have been saying that America needs to utilize the existing Aegis defense framework in the southern parts of the US.

An Electro-Magnetic Pulse, EMP, attack could destroy the fragile US electrical grid along with other infrastructure upon which America has come to rely. An attack could conceivably last months and would have the possibility of killing up to 90 percent of the American population through starvation and lack of medical attention.

Published reports in South America say that Putin is seeking to create military bases in Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela and Argentina. All four countries are close partners of Moscow. Sources say that Putin will focus on Nicaragua because of its relatively stable political and economic environment. The Russian leader is concerned with Venezuela and Argentina’s instability since both countries are experiencing significant economic problems. Demonstrations have recently begun eroding the support of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and unrest is growing over Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s corrupt and inefficient administration.

The increase in Russian military appearance in South America would give Moscow the capability to start combat missions not only in Latin America but also North America as well. Latin American periodicals are reporting that the Obama administration is doing nothing to counter Russian, Iranian or Chinese expansion in the hemisphere.

The current American administration has already announced the end of the Monroe Doctrine, a nineteenth century declaration that says any efforts by European nations to colonize land in North or South America would be considered acts of aggression which would trigger US retaliation.

In a speech before the Organization of American States in November, US Secretary of State John Kerry announced the ending of the Monroe Doctrine. Saying that the relationship which America seeks and have worked to foster is “…not about a United States declaration…” in regard to how it will interfere in the affairs of other countries in the hemisphere.

Kerry’s statement didn’t take into consideration the possibility that US adversaries would set up bases in the Western Hemisphere at the request of Argentina and other regional governments.

  1. Thank you for sharing superb informations. Your site is very cool. I am impressed by the details that you have on this web site. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for more articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched all over the place and simply couldn’t come across. What a great web site.

  2. I like this site so much, saved to fav. “To hold a pen is to be at war.” by Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire.

  3. F*ckin’ awesome things here. I am very glad to see your post. Thanks a lot and i am looking forward to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

  4. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  5. Diwali, or Dipawali, is India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects us from spiritual darkness.

  6. Argentina also has Leased for 50 years to China in Neuquen Patagonia , 200 Hectares for a Satellite Base a year ago, where an Argentine reporter was denied entrance.
    How come I do not see anything on the TV Networks or Major Newspapers.
    How much that corrupt Argentine government is getting for these ? What are they selling out next, The Obelisk ? The Pink House ?
    WAKE UP AMERICA ! Stop looking to see what’s happening in Europe and the Middle East and focus at your own Hemisphere.

  7. Visited Argentina in 2010 with my son, and we had a great time. Western Argentina is totally different from Buenos Aires, and the people are much friendlier. Too much protesting and armed confrontation in BA, as the authorities stood at the ready with automatic weapons at the never-ending protests. The problem is the government will sign anything with the Russians, or Chinese, and allow military bases, purely to save themselves from their corruption and incompetence that has devastated the Argentinian people and their economy. That is the only way that Christine and her minions can survive.

  8. Sure Argentina will host Russian military bases and the borders will be open to the Russians in case of atomic catastrophe, U.S will construct a missile shield in Poland and Estonia to block Russian nuclear capability but Russia will surround the U.S from Argentina to Venezuela with similar weapons.

  9. To all russia is try to stear up trouble within the America’s. Wanting to reclaim past Soviet Designs and divisions within Latin America. In truth Putin cares nothing of South American nations. Russia suppresses their own people within Russia itself. That is why almost all of the former soviet republics have turned towards Nato to safe guard there true independence from Russia. It has been out of fear of Russia these Nations have line up to Join Nato. Dont Be fooled, by Putin and the Russian agenda.

    1. Talk about “Soviet designs” is at least naiv. The Soviet Union is history and shall not return. Today’s Russia is not USSR, and not a communist state. Some people just don’t get it, like that loony McCain. To claim “Almost all of the former soviet republics have turned towards Nato to safe guard there true independence from Russia” is a proof of ignorance. The fact is, that Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Uzbekistan have rejoined in a military cooperation treaty just to outbalance the NATO’s aggressive behaviour eastwards. Merely Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania joined NATO. Putin does for Russia what any true national leader would do for his own country; he defends Russia’s interests, without being aggressive outwards. Don’t be fooled by Western media. The major threat, the real aggressiveness towards the world’s peace today comes from NATO, not Putin. Watch the countries conducting war in the world. You won’t find Russia among them.

  10. C’mon. Did you think he’d have them in his suitcase?

    What news are YOU following? It was announced all over Argentina news that Russia are setting down for talks.

    Sorry, but your refusal to listen to the news begs the question…where ARE you? Henceforth, I will no longer reply to your commets. If you want to follow the news and have an intelligent discussion, THEN I will be glad to engage you.

  11. Argentinos hate the Yankees, they are most anti-US country in Latin America. Every week on their forums, such as Taringa, they openly talk about killing Americans, helping China and Muslims destroy USA, etc.

    1. LIER. First of all what a bunch of retards says in internet is not representative of milliones.
      Second, having 2 bombings from foreing muslims there is no way Argentina will ever support the terrorism. Here in Argentina we have the most bigger jew and muslim comunitys in latin america, and they never killed each other, cause all of em came before the start of the conflict of em in middle east. Here the principal sinagoge and mesquite of the country are one in front of the other and priest from one or other cross to do social relations with the others.
      We would never kill americans, we are americas, in Argentina american is an adjetive for anyone born in any country in america.

    2. Lol you have no idea of what you’re talking about…. I’m writing from Argentina’s west, and believme, the US and Argentina have a LOT in common (culturaly speaking, of course) we believe in democracy, human rights, self determination and particulary in PEACE. If any goverment tries to spark or get involved in a war against US, i’m sure we’ll have a civil war… Mark my words

    1. Well, NoTe, they don’t make “never” like they used to. Putin is coming to Buenos Aires this month and guess what one of the items for discussion is. Yep. Russian military bases in Argentina. Like I said….

  12. Im Argentinean, this is a lie the least we want is military bases, even ours after so many years of military government we desestimated the idea.

  13. Да бросьте вы о базах, посмотрите, какой момент поймал фоторепортер! Владимир Владимирович очарован неземной красотой

  15. The problem is America put their nose anywhere they could. Why they interfere in Ukraine. They are supporting the Neo Nazis radical group. These people are exteremist. Their beat up the war veteran who have fought during second world war. This is very heart breaking. This veteran fought bravely just to free their nation from Hitler. And this fools beat them up. And America is supporting this radical group in the name of democracy. People of america is up to you to decide, whether your government is on the right part. Please friends do something to stop this nonsense. Soon victory day will be celebrate to remember the 2 nd world war warriors and this neo nazis group will never let it happen. Please do respect the war veteran.

  16. As ridiculously nuts as this story is, (Argentina will never host foreign military bases of any country), Russians are always welcome in Argentina no matter what American Idiots like Jerry the Neocon clown thinks.

    1. I guess you haven’t been following the news in Buenos Aires, eh, cynical_rg?

      1. SO where are the bases?, Putin left and the only news is an INTENTION to sell us transport light planes and the participation in the competition to construct the Atucha III nuclear power plant…Stupid pirate.

  17. Опровергли(((
    http://vz.ru/news/2014/3/26/679097.html
    ожидаемо – это противоречит конституции аргентины
    аналогично – венесуэлы

    однако!
    если вчитаться в слова шойгу внимательнее, то понятно, что нужны
    не базы, а разрешения на заход и пополнение запасов воды/топлива и т.д.
    так что опровержение соглашения о базе не является опровержением другого соглашения. скажем, о заходе)))

  18. “Argentina… has agreed to” What’s the source for that? Another product of the same feverish NEO-CON minds that gave us “WMDs in Irak”?

  19. Slaymaster “Putin sees an opportunity to spread communism.” one of the reasons USA is going down is because most of US Americans share these days extreme ignorance and stupidity

  20. Конечно на Кубе тоже очень не мешало бы разместить наши военные базы. Тем более это дружественная нам страна.

  21. Argentina has a constitution that can be modified in the same way ours is being rewritten today. Our President has shown total weakness and now with military cutbacks, Putin sees an opportunity to spread communism.

    Let’s not be fooled before it’s too late. Don’t be fools.

    1. And thats whay you fail… Putin is a multibillon capitalist… he dont care about comunism, he wants tu put Russia in the place they diserve, as superpower and independient country.
      You ignore completely things in Argentina. You CANT change de constitution, for it the congress have to aprobe it by absolute majority, then is called a Constitutional Congress with hundreds of representatives from all the contry called by lotery. They have to aprove de reform, absolutly no one in Argentina will ever vote to have yankees, pirates, russians, chinesse or whatever they are. We are independient and sovereign, our liberty is sacred.

    1. да, мы помним и сожалеем что сделали так мало, что бы помочь нашим братьям в беде, но Россия и сама была слаба тогда…

  22. Unfortunately, Argentina’s links with militant Islam started under Carlos Menem, who was foolishly enshrined as our extra-NATO ally, and who then worked hard to cover up his political links to the Iran/Syria terrorist network that killed more than 85 innocent people in the AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires. As later recognized by the Miami Herald and others, I wrote an Op-Ed for the Washington Times a month before the bombing that noted that, under Menem, Argentina had become a way station for Middle Eastern terrorists and international arms merchants.

    1. So lie…
      Probe it… I live in Argentina and we have no terrorist… nor military weapons illegal trade…

      1. I live here too…and the import of veapons to this country is a big as ever! But it is just a matter of time before the total soceity will crash due to political incompetence and corruption – with or without the Russians in the house.

  23. Было бы конечно не дурно. Но лучше на Кубе. Но вот в комментах говорят, что такое невозможно по Конституции Аргентины, да и “Стратфор” молчит про это, а уж если бы это было правдой, так наверное они бы написали.
    Ну посмотрим, может просто пропаганда.

  24. This is pure british propaganda…
    Argentina will NEVER host foreign military bases. The constitution of the country forbids any foreign military in the territory and it would be an invation. People will never accept it neither, who ever politician trys to do this will be commiting political suicide, if not phisical…
    Argentina es very proud in this, never let any alien to set a foot in the lands, and if they dare, kill em.

    1806, 1807, british invations, militias rised and rejected the invaders.
    1833 british invation of Malvinas
    1842 anglo-french invation of parana river to force trade without argentine control, totally failure due the resistance of the army and the rejection of population.
    1870 Paraguays invation of Corrientes ending in the triple alliance war almost anihilating paraguay
    1830/1880 chilenians mapuches invading patagonia killing tehuelches indians kidnaping womans and robbing cattle, exterminated by the army with help of the tehuelches indians
    20th centery with many scarmish against Chile for their raids on argentine lands.

    Nice way to lie Guardianlv.com… creating misinformation without sources ignoring the institutional rejection of any foreing presence by the Argentine Nation.

  25. w hen obama declares martial law and seizes all firearms and starts putting christians and gun owners in prison he will need russian and chinese boots on the ground. this is why these bases are being set up so obama will have nearby military support to pull this off.

    1. Ну согласитесь, Куба гораздо удобнее географически:) Вот как раньше Коммунизм У Берегов Америки – КУБА.

  26. Argentina has soo much to offer the world, but hosting the Russian Military for money is like being a call girl – I’m sure that Argentina can make money in other ways. Why does Russia want to have military bases in Argentina anyway? Shouldn’t they be sorting the “affairs” of Russia and their neighbouring Countries? instead of placing soldiers in all the poor vulnerable Countries of the world?

  27. Obviously this is fake.
    Putin hadn’t any contacts with Kirshner for many weeks.
    And decisions like this are impossible without top-level contacts.

  28. Most pro USA people have been brain washed through media propaganda and do not actually know the truth. Russia has used the most civilized and diplomatic methods to the Crimea situation.
    USA is only interested in bloodshed like always and any sane person should not side with them.

  29. I foresee another revolution in Russia. But this time Putin & all of his chronis will be shot just like they killed Tsar’s family in 1917. That will be the joyous day for the rest of CIVILIZED world.

  30. Good luck to the quasi empire called Russia. They can barely support the military bases located on their territory. And by the way since Putler broker his 1996 agreement about maintaining Ukraine’s territorial integrity, the US are no longer obligated not to attack Cuba. Another case of big bear with a tiny brain.

  31. откуда столько глупых комментариев на русском?, грустно.

  32. I think that the events are overdramatized. According to the writer, it looks that Americans are looking for reasons to start an actual war. Do they seriously think that the Russian government is looking for the destruction of 90% of American population? With the weapons that both countries have that move will be quite lethal. And it is really frustrating that when US are “making friends” around Russian borders, it is spreading democracy and protecting human rights. When Russia makes friends closer to USA- it is an obvious sign of the plan to destroy America.

  33. Woodyfox. Ты-то пидар какое отношение имеешь у нашей псковской?:D

  34. Our Russian commenters should read a few history books not printed in Russia. They would find the whole world has recorded history in a very different way than they have heard. Can the whole world be wrong and Putin be so right? Good luck with that my Russian friends.

  35. I hope Argentina is paying attention to the Crimean events. Vlad may send them lots of Russian immigrants and trouble down the road. Argentina’s economy is in shambles and their country’s president cares more about taking the Faukland Islands from Britain than fixing her country’s present mess.

  36. The American spine is steel, not sausage. Stick to Vodka, Ivan, the Land of Lincoln knows a paper tiger when it tries to light a flame!

  37. Bozhe, Tsarya khrani!
    Sil’niy, derzhavniy,
    Tsarstvuy na ‘slavu, Na ‘slavu nam!
    Tsarstvuy na strakh vragam,
    Tsar pravoslavniy.
    Bozhe, Tsarya khrani!

    Americans,time to learn the real Russian national anthem

    1. Tzar is dead.
      btw that’s not our national anthem, that’s a tzarist weirdos wank-song.

  38. Отсосите пиндосы сраные.Наша Псковская дивизия ВДВ все ближе к пизде Кондолизы .

  39. Much years, the U.S. invades another’s territoryes.
    At this time the U.S. decided to encroach on Ukraine and Russia by supporting terrorist financing neo-nazis radical group. Rossiya did not attack nor our Ukraine nor Krym. It’s all lies State, of the U.S. Department!

  40. Ukrania will be devided between Poland and Russia soon. Argentina and Cuba are the best points for starting of military expansion all around the world)))

  41. d weat always think they are right but this time they got it wrong..dont dare the russians

  42. And again the same writer can’t get his facts right. Argentina allied with Iran? USA our political foe? LOL. This kind of bull reminds me to those who were talking about Iraq’s WMD, probably IT MIGHT BE necessary to let the russians be in our territory, RUSSIA, YOU’RE MORE THAN WELCOME 😉

    1. Funny, the article didn’t mention the Alien Spaceships that had visited Argentina last week. Well, maybe in the next article. 😉

  43. Native people USA – American Indians !!!
    We will release American Indians from humiliations !!!
    We will return Alaska of Russia !!!

  44. If you do not know, I will inform you the following fact. 88% of the gold the U.S. Federal Reserve owns Rossii.Eto Gold was given to preserve Russian monarch Nicholas II and was awarded the United States after the revolution! And Alaska was purchased by the U.S. government, but the money was not paid Russia.

  45. It wouldn’t happen if USA and NATO stop moving to our Russian boards. Now we’ll also move to yours.

        1. why? ))) why nato after 1991 move to russia? from former DDR to Estonia? for peace in whole world )))

      1. Yeah…right. NATO is stampeding in Russian back yard for decades now, but all of the sudden “is because of the russian buildup and its actions in Ukraine.” Are you f**ing retard? What reality you live in? Google “USA wars” to learn what the rest of the world knows already.

      2. Just one question. NATO made to prevent from USSR to become strongest country in the world. USSR is gone for 23 years, Why NATO stil exist ?

  46. Всё правильно, Русская вупервоенная база в Аргентине очень нужна !!!

  47. Is this for real? To me this appears to be nothing more total rubbish. If Russia is planning on this course of action it would mean problems for the countries concerned. I doubt western aid and agreements with them would stand long after this.

    As for Obama hitting at Russia, I think you will find that this is because Ukranian territory has been violated, its citizens and property seized and Russia’s total lack of concern for the opinion of the international community. If there was anything against Russia before this I would say it was most likely in the imaginations of those in power in Russia.

    Most Americans and Europeans consider Russia as a global partner in both trade and many other areas, this action would only jeopardise these relations.

    Very sad reading these comments, and very sad for the people of Ukraine.

    1. Расскажи это погибшим детям Сербии, Ирака, Ливии, Афганистана ……….

    2. Lie, from the begginning to the end. I got relatives in Crimea, they are all happy about Russian help against nazi regime of western Ukrain. Every russian in Ukrain got clear message from Bandera followers, about getting killed. You had to see by yourself the unity of the Crimean people that voted for joining Russian Federation.
      Also, can you explain why the so called “global partners” always violate Russias geopolitical interests? Killing people in Serbia? Denounsinng antimissile defence treatment and building ADS in the viscinity of Russian borders? Expanding NATo influence against the treaties? Sponsoring revolutions and criminal activity in almost every region of the world? Just answer this questions…

      1. Well your relatives are up for a wake up call pretty soon, that is if you really have relatives in Crimea, and not just earning your 11.80, or have the rates changed? 😉 As for every Russian in Ukraine, as far as I can see, the country stands as united as ever before Russian aggression. Everyone who does not feel at home there can pack up and leave wherever they want, nothing’s stopping them. Чемодан, вокзал, Рассея.

        1. Аха, ну так они и отчалили в Рассею… вместе с Крымом…)))

      2. good , is somebody can get close to this , maybe they can have light on the whole story

  48. I this a joke? if it is, it is a very bad one, not because of Russia, but because is so surrealistic… Argentina friends of Islam? Russian bases in Argentina. I know where! Argentina give the Russians some space in the Malvinas for bases! Why I did not think of it before? And the Iranians a base in Antarctic, for the Iranian fleet… 🙂 what a joke! I think this person should get him/her self a job, a serious job!

  49. “Long a political ally of militant Islam”

    That must be why militant Islam bombed Buenos Aires twice (1992 and 1994)…..

    Also, Argentina has the highest Jewish population in all of Latin America. This news piece is so terrible to the point of being laughable.
    There will be no Russian base in Argentina, as their Constitution doe snot allow foreign forces to be stationed there. 

  50. Excellent, Putin! We are proud of our president!
    Americans constantly invade foreign countries and lawlessness. Let start thinking now!

  51. Прылестно! Мои замашки империалиста удовлетворены, как минимум, на неделю!
