U.S. Troops to Disembark in Argentina

Resumen Latinoamericano / The Dawn News, By Héctor Bernardo, May 23

Mauricio Macri sent a delegation to the United States to arrange the installation of a North American military base in Ushuaia. A specialist of the CEMIDA (Center of Militaries in Favour of Democracy), Elsa Bruzzone, stated: “The objective of the US is to gain control over all of our natural resources”.

Mauricio Macri’s government sent a delegation of the Defense Ministry to the U.S. to discuss military cooperation projects. The most controversial one involves the installation of a North American military base in Ushuaia, in Tierra del Fuego province.

The North American military expansion in the Southern Cone has had great proportions over the past few years. Researchers, such as journalist Stella Calloni, sociologist Atilio Borón and journalist Telma Luzzani, have denounced the increase in the number of bases in many articles and books.


Elsa Bruzzone, specialist in geopolitical, strategy and national defense issues and member of the CEMIDA (Center of Militaries in Favour of Democracy), affirmed: “The United States is using different excuses —among them, alleged “humanitarian aid” and “support in cases of natural catastrophes”— to install military bases disguised as “scientific research bases”. These covert bases are always established in areas with highly strategic natural resources: water, fertile soil for food production, minerals, hydrocarbons, and biodiversity”.

“Apart from the military base that they want to install in Ushuaia, they also intend to install one in the area of the Triple Frontier (where Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina converge). They insist on installing it in the city of San Ignacio, in the province of Misiones, Argentina. They intend to gain complete control over the Guaraní Aquifer. This is something that they have already tried in the Argentine city of Resistencia, Chaco, in 2012, using ‘humanitarian aid’ as an excuse. But the resistance of the people of Chaco, in addition to the activity of the CEMIDA, the Defense Ministry and the Chancellery, managed to stop that project”, Bruzzone stated.
