If you want to read Pravda's account of Vladimir Putin's trip to Latin America, be prepared for some serious hyperbole. It self-consciously tries to rival George W. Bush. And really, why does anyone want to do George W. Bush even worse than George W. Bush?
The tangible results of the visit of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to Latin America were, in a word, massive, the first concrete step in laying the cornerstone of a new geopolitical order based on multilateral values, a New World Order which spells a clear message to the USA: either you are with us, or against us.
It goes on to bash Brazil and make the point that large-scale weapons sales and oil agreements mean that Venezuela and Russia are Masters of the Universe.
