    If Milei makes it to the end of the year, we might see him join BRICS because “why should I let the communists enjoy all the success?”

          Hm, maybe, depends on whether they’re pro-neoliberal or not, and are friendly with the socialist five and other anti-western allies…

          But until Milei is gone, welp…

          • Peronists have always been anti-neoliberal and hold a “friends with everyone” stance. Even if that meant for Juan Peron that that meant since he wouldn’t agree to snub the Soviets, the US refused to have relations and vice versa. They have expressed support for Cuba, Iran and said that Russia is a “great friend” and initially exclusively used the Sputnik-V vaccine until being pressured to distribute the Johnson + Johnson shot.

              Except for that disturbing time that Peron recruited and sheltered ex-Nazis

                To be fair, Peron wasn’t the only one recruiting and sheltering Nazis, nor the worst offender by a large margin. Plenty of other South American govts. were just as bad, and the Anglos and NATO were infinitely worse.

              • It’s… complicated because they also took in millions of Jewish refugees after the war. Peron just believed in not being dominated by Britain and the US, but made relationships with all nations.

              Well, thank God…

              The reason I say this is, from what I’ve heard, Peronism is a wild-card historically…

              tl;dr: The common thing it seems between Peronists is they used populist rhetoric to justify their own candidacy, otherwise, they can vary from center-left (eg. Kirchernism, Peron in his first term) to center-right… (eg. Carlos Menem, Peron in his second term/Isabel Peron)

              One second a Peronist gov’t may do all a Global South socdem gov’t is expected to do,

              The next second, it doves right into neoliberalism by surprise (Menem)

              and cracks down on leftists, possibly to appease the military corps that coup’d the Peronist gov’t in the past (Peron in his second term/Isabel Peron)…

    Didn’t China already tell them to eat dirt?

    A lot of good data in the video. But it’s worth watching alone just to see Argentina’s foreign minister eating shit and kissing up to China towards the end.
