South American Leaders Demand Apology

In no way do I support or even agree most of the time with the leftist South American leaders from Argentina, Ecuador, Suriname, Venezuela and Uruguay. However for this time only, I do.

The five leaders joined Bolivian President Morales on Thursday to demand an apology from France, Italy, Portugal and Spain after the plane debacle.

In case you haven’t heard, Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane was diverted this week in Vienna, Austria because there were suspicions that Snowden was onthe plane. France, Italy, Portugal and Spain refused to allow his plane to fly through their airspace. President Morales had been returning from a summit in Russia during which he had suggested he would be willing to consider a request from Snowden for asylum.

I’m sure that if something like this would have happened to President Obama or any of the presidents of the European nations there would be an uproar and repercussions for the humiliation President Morales experienced.

De ninguna manera yo apoyo o incluso estoy de acuerdo la mayor parte del tiempo con los líderes sudamericanos de Argentina, Ecuador, Surinam, Venezuela y Uruguay. Sin embargo, para esta ocasión única, lo hago.

Los cinco líderes se unieron el jueves con el presidente boliviano Morales para exigir una disculpa por parte de Francia, Italia, Portugal y España, después de la debacle de avión.

En caso de que usted no ha sabe lo que paso, el avión del presidente boliviano Evo Morales fue desviado esta semana en Viena, Austria, porque había sospechas de que Snowden estaba en el avión . Francia, Italia, Portugal y España se negaron a permitir que su avión vuele a través de su espacio aéreo. Presidente Morales regresaba de una cumbre en Rusia durante la cual se había sugerido que estaría dispuesto a considerar una solicitud de asilo para Snowden.

Estoy seguro de que si algo como esto hubiera sucedido al presidente Obama o cualquiera de los presidentes de las naciones europeas, habría un alboroto y repercusiones para la humillación experimentada.
