Occupying a narrow strip of land of the South American continent between the Andean range and the Pacific Ocean, the Republic of Chile has a number of climatic features and a variety of geographical landscapes that significantly influence the development of the state.

Сухой закон в США
 The prohibition in the USA was established by the 18th amendment to the Constitution on 17.12.1917 (entered into force on January 17, 1920) and abolished by the 21st amendment on 5.12.1933. During this period, private storage and consumption of alcohol was not restricted, but its production, transportation through the country, sale, export and import to the territory of the United States of America were banned. It is the only case in the history of the USA, when one amendment abolished the other.
Пустыня Наска
 In South America, 450 kilometers from the Peruvian capital, the city of Lima, the plateau of the Nazca desert is located, which became widely known about eighty years ago.  It is quite a deserted place, dominated by strong winds, which direction depends on the season. Plateau is considered to be one of the most arid places in the world. Rains fall two to three times a year. People have always avoided building dwellings in this area. However, this was true until the forties of the twentieth century.

Мучу Пикчу Перу
 Machu Picchu is an ancient city, built at the behest of the Inca ruler Pachacutecus in the 15th century. This place is often called a lost city, because for a long time no one knew about it. The city is located on the surface of a plateau of one of the mountains, at an altitude of more than two thousand meters. At the foot of the mountain flows the Urubamba River.
Статуя Свободы в Нью-Йорке
For more than a century the Statue of Liberty all around the world is associated with New York and the United States. But what kind of prehistory did it have?  The Statue of Liberty, whose height is 46 meters, was made in Paris, dismantled and delivered in details to the United States, and then installed on Bedlou Island (now Liberty Island), located three kilometers from the southern coast of Manhattan at the mouth of the Hudson River.
Остров Гаити
Impressive travelers can even experience a real shock, since there is simply no other such place on our planet.  This is a black country. And not because 95 percent of the inhabitants are from Africa, but because of the fact that its past and present are hopeless. Even more, the dark forces oppress it ever since the advent of the ships of Columbus.
Индейцы Южной Америки
Pre-Columbian America experienced the heyday and fall of the great civilizations - the Maya, the Aztecs, the Incas.

Most descendants of Indians of that era still live in Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and other countries of South America.
Перу - исторические памятники инков

Революция в Америке
The Bolivian president said socialist governments in South America must launch democratic revolutions to counter U.S. plans to regain control. Socialist governments in Latin America must relaunch “democratic revolutions” in order to combat the strategies in play by the United States to regain control of the region, Bolivian President Evo Morales said in an interview aired Monday night.
Россия готова к войне
So foreign ministers from the 28 NATO member-nations met in Brussels for a two-day summit, while mighty military power Montenegro was inducted as a new member. Global Robocop NATO predictably discussed Afghanistan (a war NATO ignominiously lost); Iraq (a war the Pentagon ignominiously lost); Libya (a nation NATO turned into a failed state devastated by militia hell); Syria (a nation NATO, via Turkey, would love to invade, and is already a militia hell).
Преступление без наказания
The US military has adopted an Israeli procedure known as “roof-knocking” in its war on Islamic State, also known as ISIS or Daesh, adding yet another failed Israeli tactic to its counterterrorism toolkit. Roof-knocking entails striking the roof or upper story of a home or building with a mortar shell or missile prior to bombing it with even bigger munitions, in a supposed effort to warn civilians inside that they should evacuate.
Геополитика дешевой нефти
The market was supposed to save the planet. That, at least, was the argument of many economists grappling with the problem of climate change. As fossil fuels became scarcer, they pointed out, the price of oil and natural gas would go up. And then other options, like solar and wind, would become cheaper, particularly as investment flowed into that sector and drove down the cost of new technologies. And voila: The invisible hand would gradually turn down the global thermostat.
Создание Курдистана
Paris and London are multiplying their categorical declarations against Daesh, its programme of ethnic cleansing and its terrorist attacks. And yet they are preparing in secret for the ethnic cleansing of Northern Syria with a view to creating a pseudo-Kurdistan, and the re-localisation of Daesh to Al-Anbar in order to create a « Sunnistan » there. Thierry Meyssan analyses this plan, and underlines the numerous contradictions in the official discourse.
Экспорт Украины
Qatar has bought sophisticated military equipment from Ukraine on behalf of ISIS. The operation took place in late September 2015, just before the Russian military action against the terrorist organization. It was approved by the US embassy in Doha. Officially, the new emir is not involved in the war in Iraq and Syria.
Время перемен, vigiljournal.com
The days of the « Arab Spring » are almost over. As of now, the White House and the Kremlin are redesigning the contours of the « Greater Middle East ». However, their agreement, which was concluded before the Russian military intervention in Syria, could still be modified by the changes in the balance of power. There is no proof that Moscow will accept the stabilisation of Syria or ignore the partition of Turkey and Saudi Arabia which are soon to begin.
Терроризм - подмена понятия, vigiljournal.com
Exclusive: “Terrorism” is a word of condemnation, referring to the coldblooded killing of civilians to advance a political cause. But U.S. pundits and officials have blurred its meaning to cover attacks on American soldiers in foreign lands, a word game that can contribute to more wars, writes Robert Parry.
Беженцы в Европе, vigiljournal.com
While the European media arouse emotion by showing photographs of a drowned child and reports of crowds of refugees crossing the Balkans on foot, Thierry Meyssan demonstrates that these images have been fabricated. It’s certain that they serve the purposes of the head of the Federation of German Industries, Ulrich Grillo, and also NATO. But they do not show the phenomenon in its totality, which leads the Europeans to offer inadapted responses.

Attorney General Alejandro Ordóñez said that the policy of persecution and systematic attacks against thousands of Colombians forcibly deported is a "crime against humanity".

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, acknowledged today that there is an "economic problem" in the country, although she hopes that the recovery will come later this year thanks to fiscal adjustments, made by the government.

экономика Украины, vigiljournal.com
Faced with the collapse of the Ukrainian economy, the West only offers promises, says US expert. "We have lost a quarter of the national economy," said Yatseniuk at a meeting with governors. He further stated that hundreds of companies had to close, although Ukraine has collected more in taxes this year than in 2014 and there were no delays in social payments.
If we take into account the February inflation rate of 1.22%, Brazil has accumulated over the last twelve months 7.7%, exceeding the fiscal target set by the government of Rousseff and has reached the worst figures in the last ten years. Gasoline rose 8.42% last month, ethanol 7.19% and diesel 5.32%, these increases have helped to push overall inflation. Public transport and education have also risen last month. In the regular courses, the monthly rise has accounted to an average of 7%.
The month of January was a taste of what awaits us this year in terms of revenue. The 47 percent drop in oil exports, which amounts to a loss of 812 million dollars, could not be compensated by the 15.3 percent increase of automobile exports in the first month of 2015.
Золото
MOSCOW -- Russia, holder of the world's fifth largest stash of foreign currencies, is increasing its gold purchases. One reason for this is the country's increasing wariness of the dollar and euro now that Russia has come under U.S. and European sanctions over the Ukraine crisis. Another reason is that these currencies are becoming increasingly risky to hold due to the swelling debts of the governments that back them.
