Peruvians protest against the "invasion" of US marines

As with Colombia the US is interfering in the internal affairs of a foreign country, Peru. The government there has welcome the interference so they can use the US troops to help squash a rebellion and decent.
The Peruvian Government has been battling the Shining Path guerrillas (Communist Party of Peru) for the last 30 years. But they are also trying to squash other similar political groups, such as movadef, which has tried to form a legal political party and the Peruvian Government has prevented that.
The Peruvian Government has recently tried to pass a 'Terrorism Denial' law that prevents frees speech when discussing the past civil war with the Shining Path. The US should not be involved in the internal affairs of other countries.
This is continuing the policy of imperialism and we need to oppose it. There is little difference between this and the invasion of Iraq. - Otto

Peruvians have taken to the streets in Lima on Tuesday to "welcome" the thugs of the US aircraft carrier USS George Washington, with its 3,200 troops which will kick off a new "military invasion" ..

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 port of Callao in the context of a bilateral military cooperation agreement that the Congress of Peru ratified in late January, when it authorized the entry and stay of US troops in Peruvian territory.
Thus, from February to Peru they have entered more than one hundred US military, many of them for a stay of one year.

Under the agreement, the US military trains the Armed Forces of Peru in combating armed groups and drug traffickers operating in the Valley of the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro Rivers, as reported in February an article portal.

On August 21 last, activists of political and social organizations were also demonstrated in the streets of Lima to protest a military presence they consider detrimental to the sovereignty and security of Peru.

According to the notice of the Collective Dignity for Tuesday, Peru is the "only" country in the region in which nine US military bases operate, while three of its ports are used to resupply the US Fourth Fleet. The Fourth Fleet's main objective maritime military control in the Caribbean, Central America and South America.

This is yet another example of collaboration of political traitors in this case Humala, with yankee imperialism, against the opinion of their own people. The new American "invasion", in this case allowed by the authorities, aims to boost military presence in South America to the steady decline of US influence in the area in recent years. Based in Peru, as happens in Colombia, the Marines can organize and support terrorist groups and coup in economic interests of American multinationals and strategic US government.

Interestingly, one of the excuses used to this kind of "consensual invasions" is to combat drug trafficking, the US being the largest consumer of cocaine in the world and the country where mafias (illegal or legal) economically perform more production, distribution and consumption.
