President Bush's five-nation, goodwill swing through Latin America was soured by protesting mobs.
This is the work of Venezuelan President Hugo Chaves, in cahoots with Nicaragua's returned Marxist regent Daniel Ortega and, of course, Iranian President Ahmednejad--who welcomed Chavez to Tehran last July and presented him with the Islamic Republic Medal (the equivalent to the American Medal of Honor) amid pomp and circumstance at Tehran University.
You don't need to be a fly on the wall when those thugs get together to know what kind of plots they hatch. In true Marxist and Jihadist form, their Grand Plan is simply this: Rouse the rabble.
In Guatemala on Sunday, more than 100 Mayan Indians were roused to protest the president's bridge-building, holding up signs that read: "No more blood for oil."
Poor Mayans. They've been brainwashed by the South American Marxists and now lip-sync anti-American--from North America-- anti-war slogans.
The straggling remnants of a once-powerful Central American kingdom was told that they should be angry because Bush was interested in stopping by the sacred Iximche archaeological site.
Iximche is the old capital of the extinct Kaqchiqueles kingdom before the Spanish conquistadors shed much Mayan blood for gold and silver in 1524.
Anyway, Mayan priests said that they will purify the sacred site at Iximche to rid it of any "bad spirits"--and the smell of sulfur, presumably-- after Bush leaves.
Juan Tinney, the director of a Mayan non-governmental organization with close ties to Mayan religious and political leaders (not to mention an obvious sponge for Hugo Chavez' rhetoric) said: "That a person like (Bush) with the persecution of our migrant brothers in the United States..."
Waitasec: Bush quite possibly lost millions of votes for his party in the last mid-term elections--wherein he lost both houses of Congress by a close margin--because he was too soft on illegal aliens!
He continued: "...with the wars he has provoked, Bush walking on our sacred lands is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture."
Now see here, Juan, the Mayan civilization collapsed (UFO assistance in building it notwithstanding) because of a combination of the ruling classes exploiting the working classes and so inciting some proto-proletarian revolution (which--Surprise!--ruined everything for everybody), irresponsible stewardship of the environment which exploited the natural resources to the breaking point, and ineptitude in trade because of the entrepreneurial failure to implement the wheel and burro for the transportation of goods, followed up by said Spanish conquistadors, all beginning about, oh, A THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE THE BIRTH OF DIABLO BUSH (who came in peace, and to inspire, not to conquer).
