NOTE: La Russophobe does not know if she has readers who are interested in South American politics, but she is pleased to announce that Robert Mayer, creator of Publius Pundit and a major force in the foreign policy blogosphere, has formed a new website called Sorry, Columbia! about U.S. policy towards Columbia. It actually has some considerable relevance to Russia, since the U.S. is doing to Columbia what it should be doing to Russia, and vice versa. The people of Columbia are valiantly marching in the streets to oppose tyranny in their country, and the U.S. is sanctioning them. The people of Russia are cravenly hiding in the shadows, and George Bush is feeding lobster to Vladimir Putin. It's through-the-looking-glass stuff, and hopefully Robert's new movement can help to put it right. It's an opportunity to get involved in an important issue, help people, show the power of the blogosphere and change the world a bit.
