FT advice on Latin America

In a story ostensibly about Venezuela, the Financial Time's Latin America editor, Richard Lapper, has some choice words about U.S. policy, namely:
the simplistic and ideological approach that America seems to be pursuing. It is an approach likely to increase instability and reduce yet further US influence in the region.
Found this thanks to Boz's Sunday musings from a café in Bogotá.

And FYI, I thought Juan Forero's piece in the New York Times today on the Venezuela land reform story was quite fair, more so than most reporting of late on the subject.
