EU supports communism in Latin America
A Spanish member of the European parliament has criticized the European social democratic leaders for supporting communism in Latin America.
Journalist and writer Herman Tertsch says the European Commission vice-president, leftist Federica Monguerini, will be trying to avoid the total shipwreck of the aptly named " communist adventure in Latin America."
That will be the reason why Mongherini asks former Spanish President José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero for help in the negotiations, according to Tertsch.
The objective is to prevent the total collapse of Venezuela, and from dragging Cuba down as well.
The journalist states that the triumph of freedom and the fall of communism in Venezuela and Cuba horrifies the European Union that is advancing towards socialism.
