Over 18 months period four progressive leaders of Latin America and their fellow citizens were shocked by the diagnosis delivered by their physicians – cancer. Fernando Lugo, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, Hugo Chavez, and recently Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner were given this diagnosis. The Presidents of Paraguay, Brazil, Venezuela and Argentina suspiciously simultaneously turned out on the verge of survival.
Chavez immediately warned that the disease may be a “new weapon of the empire to eliminate unwanted leaders.” Maybe, but oddly enough, the result was the opposite. All politicians not only did not stop their political life and moved away from responsibilities, but on the contrary, dramatically increased their rating and rallied around the supporters.
First, in August of 2010 60-year-old Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo was diagnosed with a tumor of lymphatic system. After six sessions of chemotherapy in Sao Paulo and Asuncion, doctors reported that the tumor was gone. He was elected in 2008 with a mandate for five years. He resigned his ecclesiastical rank and became the second leftist president in the history of the country.
66-year-old former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was diagnosed with larynx cancer in October of 2011, nine months after the transfer of power to Dilma Russef. The doctors did not operate on Lulu, saying that as a result he may lose his voice forever – an extremely important tool for policy and communication.
They argue that after several sessions of chemotherapy the tumor of the ex-president who had a firm intention to return to politics was reduced by 75 percent. Lula, who was in power from 2003 to 2010, reduced poverty in the country, united Latin America and made Brazil one of the world’s largest economies.
57-year-old Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez began treatment for cancer at the end of June of 2011. There is still no official data on what type of cancer he has. He was operated in Havana on July 20. After four rounds of chemotherapy, a series of medical tests confirmed a positive trend. Chavez has been in power since 1999 and in October of 2012 he is to run for the third term.
Finally, in late December, the media reported that 58-year-old Argentine President Cristina Kirchner will undergo surgery in early January of 2012 for cancer of the thyroid gland and the prognosis for recovery is quite favorable. Kirchner was re-elected for the second term in December of 2011 and takes a firm anti-American stance.
Hugo Chavez was the first to become suspicious. “I am far from delusions of persecution, but the fact remains – the murder as a way of removing unwanted politicians has been always practiced by the Empire (USA). I have no proof, and yet it is obvious that there is something strange with progressive politicians in Latin America,” said Chavez.
He is right, as murder of Fidel Castro was attempted in dozens of ways. Venezuelan writer Luis Brito Garcia counted more than 900 assassination attempts of the Cuban leader organized by the CIA. However, today Latin America is not only united against the USA, but also against Israel, where nearly all the countries recognize the independence of Palestine, so in fact one can search for trace not only of the CIA, but Mossad as well. It is also strange that Chavez’s illness and the type of cancer (prostate cancer) was first reported by “a source at the CIA,” a newspaper that exists on the money of the State Department – Nuevo Herald.
