This is the srangest George W. Bush news we've come across in a while.
The Latin American News Agency, Prensa Latina, is claiming today the George W. Bush family is intending "to settle on the "Acuifero Guarani (Paraguay)...."
An official from the Argentine Federal Planning Ministry issued a memo, where "he spoke of the purchase by Bush of a 98,842 acre farm in northern Paraguay, beween Brazil and Bolivia".
The massive purchase of land was described as being "surprising...a bad signal for the governments of the region."
The article goes on to say the official "considered this Bush step counterproductive for the regional power expressed by Presidents Nestor Kirchner, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Evo Morales, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro."The George W. Bush family buys 100,000 acres in Paraguay and there are fears this "could cause a hypothetical conflict of all the armies in the region...."
The only other current link between the Bush Family and Paraguay we've found is the fact that George W. Bush's daughter, Jenna Bush, was in Paraguay in early October on a UNICEF "program".
While in the Paraguayan capital, Asuncion, Jenna Bush found time to have dinner with the president of Paraguay and a meeting with the US Ambassador James Cason.
So was Jenna Bush there to check out the land purchase? Or to seal the deal for her dad?
Weird, if true.
And I always thought that when the Red Cross goes after Bush Co. for war crimes relating to the unprovoked, unofficially declared 'War On Iraq' that he and his vice-president and defence secretary would flee to Tasmania.
Perhaps plans have changed and now Paraguay is the place to hide out. Lots of jungle down there.
There's not a lot of current news about the Bush family and Paraguay. But The Bush Dynasty and South America share a strange and controversial history.
