Hopefully she learned from her predecessor's mistake of trying to become a dictator.

"Our nation is strong and secure thanks to the armed forces, the navy, the air force, and the army of Peru," Boularte said before hundreds of members of the armed forces in Peru's capital. "They give us the guarantee that we live in order, respecting the constitution, the rule of law, the balance of powers."

Your Air Force helps enforce rule of law in your country? Ours just kind of hangs out in air conditioned rooms and complains if the wifi goes out.

It's South America. The only lessons that were learned were how to get it wrong.

Making a broad statement without any idea of how she came in to power? Lemme guess, it's what a Conservative does, am I right?

My understanding is that she was not elected to the office that she now holds and is using the military to secure her hold on that office.  Do I have my facts right?

Target Builder: Is there a good guy/bad guy here?


I don't think so. They've had 6 presidents in the last 6 years. The former guy tried to suspend parliament so he's not a good guy, but the other side is basically the fans of the dictator they used to have. Basically two major factions seem to think of democracy as a handicap.

They tried to revise the constitution, but the revised version failed the referendum.

This is a good example of what can happen to places where democracy is seen as less important than power.

Yes, I'm already in the process of painting a mural of her on a city wall, and framing her picture in my shrine of Leftist Thugs™, but I wish she would have seized power at a more convenient time in my life, because it's hard to balance worshipping her as a deity while also seizing the means of production and forcing small towns in America nobody has ever heard of or cares about to adopt communism through subversive means and stealing elections.

Peru has had six presidents in the last six years. Boluarte is a 60-year-old lawyer and political neophyte.

It seems it's a temporary position anyway.

Dina Boluarte was elevated from vice president to replace ousted leftist Pedro Castillo as the country's leader Wednesday. She has said she should be allowed to hold the office for the remaining 3 1/2 years of his term.


She became President because she was Vice-President.  Line of succession type stuff, like we have in the U.S.A..  I don't know the particulars of the current Peru Constitution, but generally around the world if you get elevated to an office you are a back up for, you finish the term / session... like is done in the USA.

She was elected to be VP.

The old P (an actual economically far left socialist, albeit a social conservative) decided to dissolve the government without the authority to do so when facing criminal charges. The legislature removed old P from power and made VP the new P.

Military followed the civilian chain of command and legal succession, and refused to follow illegal orders to dissolve the government.


Not sure where your mixup is.

The Peru air force intercepts planes suspected of carrying drugs. Occasionally, they light up one carrying evangelical missionaries.
