It is a 'sting operation', carried out with the consent of the Peruvian government, intended to consolidate the US presence not only in Peru but in Latin America, in circumstances in which the (US) Empire seeks to change the correlation of prevailing forces in the region.
The aircraft carrier George Washington arrives at the
