      Saying that the US did not have a direct hand in the massacres in Guatemala is like saying the US did not have a direct hand in the massacres in Vietnam.

  • Central America in the 80s was a black eye on the US and particularly, the Reagan Administration. The US was fomenting this shit as a Cold War strategy to prevent the spread of Communism in Latin America. Classic case of "the end justifies the means."

      They? How many Democratically elected presidents did the US take out in South America??

      The country that hands down gives the worst name to democracy is the US so don't even try it.

      As for friends, despite the US cackhandedness... South Americans are still the most natural allies culturally. Your just retarded.

      You cant deny that there is a lot in common culturally.

      And the animosity goes both ways for warranted reasons.

      So? How do you move forward?

      Like Colombia with its Free trade deal that currently benefits the US more than it does Colombia? Or something more divided?

      What would make things better or worse?

      Its next to impossible to have it both ways.

      the animosity had historically reason rather than anything else...

      I guess we could come around ...personally I count some USA citizens individuals as good and dear friend to mine ...and I actually deeply admire some of them like ...MLK ...JFK and over all Dr Ron Paul...

      Yet as a group and foreign policies and conducts is just so difficult to find any common ground ...even when arguing with idiotic communist in my country I just impossible to justify any historical fact coming fro More..

    • @Blackdawn Not everyone is trying to come to America, get over yourself you stupid piece of shit. There are people who live off the land and don't have to come here... And guess what bitch? Guatemalans did have to come to Mexico and America illegally because of the violence that the UNITED STATES perpetuated and funded over there.... seriously, if The United States would stop economically ruining and running war games and sending their private security around the world then maybe people wouldn't More..

    • @Blackdawn Actually their country sucks because the US practically destroyed it with a drug war.

      As usual, America is the source of evil in the world - and you will pay for your evil in spades.

  • I mean... the white man has been pretty much trying to get rid of the native people of this land since they got here... But Aztlan will rise again and the people will rise... as does the sun and the maize(corn).

    • @Fresh2Death The United States also sent some nazi eugenics scientist down to Guatemala to give people syphilis and sterilize them... just like the Tuskegee Project that gave poor african americans crack ads std's being treated for 'bad blood'.

    • @PimeTaradox A lot of the S.American natives retained their languages and there are also people who speak quiche along with other native languages including Spanish even to this day in Mexico who had peonage laws wayyyy before America ever even had slave rights so subsequently they all moved south and learned Spanish. Damn, how come you are such a dumb shit?

      Well, to be honest, the local american tribes were really good at slaughtering each other long before the Europeans arrived.
