Probably one of Condi's, Dick's, and Rummy's worst nightmares


george, on the other hand, just goes biking and dreams of groping angela...
[Fidel Castro] left Havana at midday for his first visit to Argentina since President Nestor Kirchner's inauguration in May 2003 and arrived in Cordoba at 8.30pm. It is the fourth time Castro [has visited] Argentina.

The surprise visit by the dean of Latin America's left, honouring Venezuela's formal induction into Mercosur, set up a nightmare image for Washington's free-trade faithful: Castro and his radical allies Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Evo Morales of Bolivia publicly embracing Latin America's more mainstream leftists, far beyond the influence of the White House.

Arriving in Buenos Aires yesterday morning, Chavez called their display of leftist unity a "fiesta of integration." He lunched with Kirchner and the two later flew separately to Cordoba to join the others, including Brazil's Luiz Inicio Lula Da Silva.

Morales and Chile?s Michelle Bachelet were attending as observers; also coming are the leaders of Mercosur members Paraguay and Uruguay, Nicanor Duarte Frutos and Tabare Vazquez respectively.

Venezuela's formal induction into Mercosur, a long-unassuming Customs union that will now include all the continent's largest economies, is to be a highlight of today's daylong Mercosur summit of presidents.

interesting that i've seen nothing of this in the u.s. media... totally predictable but interesting, nonetheless...
