Nobody knows the reason why Fujimori former peruvian president
made years ago a trip to Santiago de Chile in a private rented jet in circunstances was in a Interpol list demanded by Peru authorities by several legal demands particulary by human rights violation during his govenment.Is a bizarre issue.First in a international tour Fujimori resign the presidency by Fax and stay en Japan.In fact he have two nacionalities.In Chile was arrested and by a peruvian demand during long months must face to a extradition demand.The High chilean Justice Court aprove this year the extradition y was sended to Lima in a peruvian police aircraft.Since this day began not only several trials with Fujimori in a special jail.Yesterday a court read a sentence ofguilty of invasion of former inteligence chief Montecinos wife house in search of videos and other incrimination probes by security forces.The condemn 6 years in jail,Fujimori plead no guilty.
A clue is largely political, the peruvian public opinion es divided,many people thinks Fujimori is guilty of human rigth violations as La Cantuta masacre in where 13 persons died including a child by Colina a paramilitary inteligence group.But many other people are prone to think Fujimori was a good president and end the terrorist menace of Sendero Luminoso a marxist
group with similar aims as maoist.Also one daugther is a politician with a representation site in peruvian chamber of representants.Many people thinks that the Fujimori aims is return to political scenary and the best mean is the trial to show to peruvian Fujimori political staments.Is a very elusive situation and nobody knows the end of Fujimori affaire.But the worst alternative is if it found guilty of Cantuta action in this case must remain 30 years in prison an today Fujimori age is 69.

Is not clear the relationships betewen trade an political agreements as Mercosur and the new Bank,but today Cristina new president make statments about Chavez contribution to union of south american countries an also Lula leadership.The times tell us in the future if thje South Bank was a real integration measure or was a new white elephant a no south american animal

The Sunday venezuelan referendum has many clues about Chavez defeat ands over the new political scenary for the next years.First many people thinks that was a bad choice make the option to change some articles of constitution in a country with the population with domestic problems to obtain some basic foods.In the last election Chavez won with 7 million of ballotage,Monday only obtain 4 million of votes.The diferences are not voters to oposition were no voters or abtention.Second factor Isaias Baduel a general very close to Chavez and former Defense Ministry.Baduel resign on July and after not agree with Chavez option to change the Constitution,both are army members and this is a very important issue in a government based in army stability a disence some armies groups are always a posibility in venezuelan politics.The Chavez incursion in politics was based in a former past as a young army oficial interested in publics affairs.The third element are universities student,is posible a elite group but for example Yon Goicoechea a 25 laws student surge after No wining as a natural leadership concerned about Venezuela social situation.His discourse moderate is a wise sign about a very pragmatic vision that Chavez is still a popular leader with 5o% of preferences and that if democracy work in five years more a opossite coalition with other program could repeat the Monday results.

Today a colombian newspaper reproduce the text of a Ingrid Betacouncourt letter who was never sent neither delivered to his mother but is evidence that former candidat to President of Colombia is still alive.
Ingrid is a prisoner of Farc guerrilla for many years, she is a innocent people if is a crime have political ideas most people must be in jail.Farc action is not diferent of a mobil nazi concentration camp in the deep of colombian forest.The action is a very injust an cruel action because Ingrid is a woman a mother,and has no comitted any fault.Is a unwise and silly action who descredited Farc ideas mantain a harmles people as Ingrid in a irregular prison without trial and no charges,Beside the letter show a great damage not only phisical of Ingrid health.This action qualifies as a phisical an mental torture punish in every place as human right violation or International Court of Justice as war crimes if Farc says the is a army .The Betancout liberation is not a condition to talks betewen government and guerilla is a humanitarian necesary action without conditions.OEA must involve in this issue as a emblematic one and Chavez instead of break relationships with Colombia must use his influence over Farc guerrillas to liberate Ingrid,the same actions could be done by Lula and Correa Government both countries has means to show Farc that is not a minor issue if Farc aspire some day to envolve in legal political activities gain some credibility if liberate Ingrid Betancourt as soon as posible if is true his propaganda about popular aims of liberty to colombia people.The opposite and maintain Ingrid against his rights to live with his family and with a minimum of human decence is a barbaric and a criminal action of Farc and a international descredit to Marulanda eventual leadership.


Today in a audience wit NGO in Rome Pope Benedict XVI accuse international institutions of moral relativism ignores human dignity and the true about human conditions.In his view a erroneous concept about pacific coexistence based in a egocentric view about international order without space to poor nations necesities,economic short terms interest based in welfare of some rich countries.Also a selective defense of human rights with only considerations of needs of efluents society and forgett basic needs of weak societies who dont have power to make public his dramas as hunger,poverty and diseases.Pope think is a strong claim about a double discourse in international forums hidden the real problems of third world and puting other themes as more important as terrorism and making from center of human activities material needs including to a lavish level instead to worry about Sudan drama or iraquie daily genocide.
Moral relativism coined by Pope is a old concept of Catholic Church till to day in direction of private life,but is new claim to actual international order.If one think has a broad implication in international order.Bad trade conditions betewen Europe and most developped countries,segregation or exlusion to work in theses countries to migrants as mexican in USA or africans in France.monopole and high revenues in services on international american entreprises
on South america specially in basic services(telecomunication,water in great cities even the banking sistem).More dangerous a psicological brain washing demonizing about reformist politics who dont accept conditions of FMI or other puting the label of prone to social disorder or pro terrorist.Is nor first time Pope speak with his style of a mild person,but the important thing is that his statments are very strong and critic about unfair international practices and also a very strong defense of the essence of human dignity who refuse accept citizens of first and second class,the existence of absolute human rights as life,respect of individual culture and freedom to make social and political choices without interference of powerfull countries and his
economic or military menaces.

Sunday russian must elect a new Duma the equivalent of a representants chamber and the most named no oficial candidate is Wladimir Putin the actual Rusia leader of government that must leave his position nex year.In fact the election is focus as a referendum over United Russia his party and Putin political action in the last years.Putin es a popular people but not enough to reach a 50% in survey.Is not clear the result.Opositionto Putin denounces inequal access in advertisemens facilities specially in TV.Other acuses intervention and presure over voters about,many oferts on some services are offers including scarces foods,some facilities at work or universities ans either doctors atending the ballotage day or free hair cuts.Russia is a very complex political scenary.A new generation of young people is more positive to new economy an the market liberalizacion.But older generation who lives all his lifes in a state rule as provider of works,health care,education are less prone to accept the new situation and Putin reforms.A clue of the election if is enough arguments a more dinamic economy based in high revenues of oil and the crowded streets of Moscu with Mercedes and other occidental made cars and the irruption of a new rich class who have international place in the european jet set.Comunist ideology is far to be popular but to many russian is a remember of a nostalgic past of a international superpower forgetting human rigth advancements and the dark days of KGB power over russian society.But also this new capitalism in russian style is contraversial about corruption episodes, and ilicit enrichment of few people profiting of state colapse economy.Putin power is in scrutinySunday but also a plebicit about the future roads of Rusia society in the next decade,but one thing is certain the older Russia can not win to the new Russia.

Nobody knows why colombian President Uribe agree with leftist Hugo Chavez the venezuelan leader to make peace conversation with Farc guerillas to obtain a humanitarian agreement to liberate a hundred of political prisioner including 3 american citizen,a former candidat to Colombia Presidence as Ingrid Betancourt and many colombias politics an military personal.First because the change demanded by Farc included 500 people active ex guerilla members some one in american prisions by drugs activities or guerrilla activities.Second because the political risk was more to Uribe government,Chavez in a very complicate times must afford this Sunday a crucial election to find a aproval to changes in contitucional status and without security to obtain the mayority.But in international field the winner could be Chavez
in political colombian field the venezuelan President have a plus as a mediator in a very sensible affair a guerrilla lasting 43 years with thousand of causualities most civilian displaced people disturbing all economic and social life also with political consecuences to create a atmosfer to economic colombia development.Today Uribe has said that is ended the comision to Chavez and make signal to try make direct talks with guerrillas leaderships a matter with very bad positive result in the past.Other consecuence is the Chavez anger who recall is ambassador in Bogota today.Al journal of Bogota make today a public survey and 52% people think that the most damage is Colombia if Chavez break relationships.The other matter not very clear to public opinion is why Uribe demanded mediation and after said that whas because Chavez intent talk with directly with high colombian army forces officials or eventually with Farc guerrillas comand.The affair is far to end.Colombia depend many of venezuelan oil and Chavez have no interest to appear in international world as a protector or promotion of guerrilla activities.The ghost of Castro is always present and both need find a solution to guerrilla prisioner affair to his
political presence in the next years.

In rethorics of international mass media last time is plenty of biased information about latin america political changes.A very simplist point of view is concerned about the presence in many countries of elected governments with popular indian population of not political traditional establishment roots.Bolivia is one good example,Morales has a very huge popular leadership.His program is not a radical one.Many reforms are recomendations of international institutions as Fao as a more
equal access to land by indian poor pesant population.Oil affair program is more
modest as many Opec countries.Chavez issue is other face of the same fenomen.All people forgott about the venezuelan governments in the last 50 years.Instead of profit of oil revenues to build a developped country,money was wasted and issues as education,public health and social conflicts based a bad wealth distribution was the door to Chavez election.Ecuador is other example.Is a very bad international politic say that all politic outside of USA or Europa union politics are a danger to free democracy models.A country with 200 US dollar of people/Revenue by year is nota democratic one only for elect a person to President .This kind of democracy is a bad propaganda to western democracies. The last Meeting in Santiago is posible a turning point in the change of focus in latin america demands to improve social conditions of poor and very poor segments in population.Chavez speech interruption by Spain King Carlos is a sign of unrealistic vision of latin american problems.When are many international economics interest of transnational spanish companies with the ownwership of electrical or telepfonic services in many countries a King is in the best approach a politic representant of spanish people but not a person in charge to protect directories or bad images of private entreprises.Developped countries must learn to hear societies voices and not only manager voices,because the wind of times are changing.And if intelectual and political elites in developed countries ignore the fact,is a high posibility to wake up with a huracan over his heads.

Today is growing the concern about FMD outbreak(Foot and Mouth Disease) on Britain.
The main concern are about the safety level in animal disease research centers working with live material as virus.FMD is nos dagerous to population butr que question is if were a center working with avian flu material?.The ohter concern are abotu economnic damage to farmers.Certainly may be some mitigation measures but the culling of animals are a nigthmare
to many as a remember of others outbreaks.Another issue es la strong capacities of a old virus as FMD to mutate.In Medicine a high virus mutation rate maker very a not easy task find a vaccine.Some countirs take measures to limit the animal transit to his market.In USA,USDA a USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has released the following statement regarding the outbreak of food and mouth disease (FMD) in Britain that was confirmed over the weekend:
“USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is closely monitoring an emerging animal disease situation in the United Kingdom. Foot-and mouth-disease (FMD), a highly contagious viral disease of cattle, swine, and other cloven-hooved ruminants, has been detected on a farm in Surrey, England. FMD is not transmissible from animals to humans, but it does have serious implications for animal agriculture in any country where the disease is detected.
“Immediately, USDA is placing restrictions or prohibitions, depending on the type of product and level of processing, on all UK products derived from any FMD susceptible species. This includes any products already en route to the United States. All live ruminants and ruminant products are currently prohibited due to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). However, swine meat and by-products are now prohibited/restricted.
“APHIS has alerted the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that effective August 3, the United States is placing a ban on all UK products derived from any FMD susceptible species. We will be working closely with our counterparts at CBP to ensure that these products are not imported into the United States and that travelers from the United Kingdom do not bring prohibited products back to the United States.
“USDA has a strong system in place for detecting and responding to outbreaks of foreign animal diseases, including FMD in the United States. This system begins with a cadre of USDA accredited private veterinary practitioners who partner with livestock producers and APHIS to report any suspected foreign animal disease cases to state and federal officials.
"When a possible case of a foreign animal disease is reported, APHIS works with the state involved to immediately dispatch one of more than 400 specially trained foreign animal disease diagnosticians to the scene.
“We will continue to closely monitor the situation in the United Kingdom.”

Research made en California Davies in birds behaviour is a good a demostration that crows families are one of the most intelligent group animals.A condition reserved till today to great apes. These birds are capable to understand about the perceptions and intentions of others. This finding was made in the observation of birds movement,in efect crows families put considerable time and effort into hiding food, which they recover later. That in itself is not the problem. It is the scrub-jay's habit of returning to a cache, digging it up and then hiding it again somewhere new that seems so inefficientNow professor of comparative cognition at the University of Cambridge, Clayton is well aware that crows and their ilk, known collectively as corvids, are among the most intelligent of all animals. As well as caching food, scrub-jays habitually steal hidden items from one another. She suspected that the re-hiding might be a way of foiling potential thieves.

Two books about american unoficial policies in the last 100 years,including latinamerica.Greg Grendin Empire Workshop Latin America,The Unites States and the rise of the New Imperialism and Stephen Kinzer
Overthrow America Century of Regime change from Hawaii to Iraq explain the facts but give no clues to future.
USA has ever believes that latinoamerican countries are only a business place and the people are the governments.Besides that latinoamericans have the same culture values as the average "gringo" citizen.Both paradigms are wrong.For latinoamerican economic issue is not the more important,social issues are more relevant.
We in our countries don understand why a ilustrated society with internal respect of values as individual freedom,human life,free acces to information,a free press,can accept without great problem intervention, some times brutal of USA in overthrow democratic elected governments as Chile en 1973.Is not enough say 30 years after We sorry the deaths or the destruction of social network of chilean society.
Is not only a economic and political issue is a ethic debt from one society to other.
The USA Institution of the time who promotes intervention where the oficial,not individual of a gang acting in the dark of the night.American society works with many social filters and latinoamerican doubts are why intelectual elites,religous intitutions,free press are unable to stop bad actions of a small group of oficial,trasnsnational directories and bad advisers acting to "preserve ther erronous named christian capitalism.
