Just as it is criticized so many times, when the “president” is inspired, it must be recognized. He had a golden Friday. They all came out. He said “capitalism has not yielded good results“Then he put his hand on his heart and said to Putin”friends see each other in difficult times“And later finished with another jewel:”Countries like Argentina increasingly resemble poor countries”. One hit behind the other. Chapeau. Let’s jump over the crack and clap our hands together. He deserves it. We always knew that behind that used car salesman was a statesman from the ostia.
We must also congratulate the Union of Deputies, Senators and Vice Presidents who obtained a 40% increase in the salaries of its members. Bravo. That said, let’s get to the bad news: at the World Vaccination Championships we fell from position 62 to 64According to the New York Times ranking, although this week Argentina increased the doses applied per 100 inhabitants from 26 to 29 (23% with one dose and 6.4% with two), it must be understood that the other countries also play and some do it much better than us.
More precisely, now there are 63 countries that vaccinate better than Argentina. We do not flirt. We have to play the most important tournament of our lives with a team of logs.
It is not a question of making the government nervous that insists that we are the geniuses of vaccination, but let us know that Albania already has us within reach. It reached 28 doses per 100 inhabitants (29 of us). We could make a claim to FIFA about the Coronavirus, arguing that Albania is a country too small to participate in the competition but, even in the event that they gave us a ball and eliminated them, Panama and Mexico come back at a gallop with 26 doses per 100 population.
Cristina, coming out of one of the Cu Chi tunnels, in Vietnam.
To top, Cambodia happened to us this week. Shit Shit. Although the number of doses we are tied (we both have 29), the rule indicates that for the same dose, the one with the most population vaccinated with the two doses goes first. Argentina has 6.4% with two and Cambodians they humiliate us with 13%.
If I were the “president” I would not tell the Vice that the Cambodians are beating us because she still believes that Cambodia is what she just saw in “Apocalypse Now” (next week they show her “Platoon”). It would be a very hard blow to learn that a country that she supposes under constant US bombardment, a better vaccine than we do we fight the sepoys and the oligarchy like the gods.
If we pull this thread of argument we will understand a little better, from the delay in vaccines to geopolitical realignment going through Cristina’s request to personally testify in the case of the Memorandum and the role of the Cat. Let’s see.
It is said that the true engine of politics is the struggle for power, economic interests and personal businesses such as construction companies, bingo halls, hotels, etc. However, what most influences politics are the personal and psychological aspects. Sometimes the ego can be everything.
When Kirchner arrived at La Rosada, the US president was Bush (son), possibly one of the worst in history, after Trump. Ideal so that Nestor could bitch the yankees without overshadowing his admiration for Disney and his passion for George Washington, especially when he poses in the green bill.
Shortly after Cristina took office, Obama appeared, the most progressive president in American history. Black, handsome, brilliant, democrat, charismatic. Barack had them all.
Cristina believed that the guy was going to recognize her as the great progressive leader of Latin America. She imagined walking glamorously into the White House in all her Rolexes on, straight into the Oval Room. Two powers would greet each other. Two pairs. Dreams of a summer night. The harsh reality is that in Washington they already knew what Kirchnerism and Obama were about never gave him five of the ball.
Faced with the option of being just one more western president, that is to say, being a lion’s tail, Cristina He preferred to be the head of a mouse and throw himself into the arms of Chávez and his Bolivarian revolution. Nothing was ideological. Perhaps behind these decisions there was some business, but fundamentally it was spite.
The Memorandum with Iran, which it will now defend in front of the Justice, was a move to improve relations with the strategic partner of Venezuela and, therefore, Argentina. What Alberto Fernández defined very well at the time as a “presidential cover-up plan”(It is always nice to remember) was nothing more than an attempt by Cristina to overcome the conflict with Iran and advance her main undertaking:“ The Rosa Luxemburg Spa & Casino Hotel ”. Chávez’s life was dying out and she was going to be the continental Chief. As we said at the beginning, ego is usually more important than ideology.
Let us remember that a few months before, in September 2012, Cristina announced to the UN that she had received a proposal from Iran but that she would never move forward “without the agreement of all the political forces with parliamentary representation and the institutions involved (AMIA and DAIA)”(Textual).
However, in February 2013 the Memorandum was approved, urgently and without question, against the will of all opposition political forces and AMIA / DAIA. A month later Chávez died. The path to kingship seemed clear.
The next step was to win the 2013 elections and change the Constitution for a more beautiful one, let’s say more Bolivarian. “Eternal Cristina” roared Kirchnerism. But Massa appeared, he beat him and spit on the roast. It was the Massa who said “I am going to sweep the gnocchi of La Cámpora”, now transformed into “I am going to sweep for the gnocchi of La Cámpora”.
The auction was in 2015 when Cristina complained in New York for Bin Laden’s human rights and declared that ISIS was a Hollywood hoax. His anger and anger were excessive and ended up colliding with the average Argentine aspiration, much closer to Spain, Italy, France and the United States than to Venezuela, Russia, China and Iran. This is how El Gato a la Rosada arrived in 2015.
The Macri government takes credit for having finished in a timely manner. Although his mandate spanned four years, in fact his government lasted exactly one hour and a half. More precisely, since he was sworn in in Congress and moved to La Rosada to put on the band until he faced the two doors that would define his destiny.
Instead of opening the correct door where he was the honesty of the very serious situation and the call for a great national agreement, he opened the other. The remembered “Gilda door”.
He went out to the balcony to dance the cumbia as if nothing were happening here while Michetti sang with the microphone in hand in front of the Plaza de Mayo. What everyone thought was the beginning of his tenure was actually the end. It lasted an hour and a half. The shortest government in Argentine history. Everything else went to hell. The proof is that four years later Cristina beat her comfortably, she returned and resumed that agenda that had been truncated in 2013. That’s where we go.
So now the government sided with Hamas terrorists, denies human rights violations in Venezuela, supports Maduro and aligns itself with Russia and China. All why? Because the Obama brat did not entertain her as she dreamed. I would have received it with honors at the White House and today we would be talking about something else.
In this context the problem of vaccines is explained. Putin’s offer to send millions at the end of the year was the opportunity for Cristina to tell the US “put your vaccines in the upite”.
Later, as Putin is much more alive than all our geniuses put together (including Cafiero), he screwed them up and finally the vaccines just arrived now, 20,000 dead later.
Is this the explanation for the Argentine tragedy? Partially. The other side is that to defend Western Argentina we chose Macri, a boy who now came to tell us that at 7:00 p.m. he would turn off everything and watch Netflix.
There is hope? Obvious. It is never too late to take out that statesman that we all carry inside and find the path of agreement. It will be seen.
Last moment: we surpassed the Cambodians and climbed to position 63. Let’s go Argentina. Cambodia LTA.
