Pedro Castillo is declared Peru’s president-elect
Far-left union activist’s victory was certified by election officials more than six weeks after the vote
The election of the 51-year-old head of a Marxist party could result in an overhaul of Peru’s market economy, which has relied on global trade to power one of Latin America’s fastest-growing economies during the past two decades. …
Mr. Castillo’s insistence on a new constitution worries many Peruvians because it is a tactic regularly used by leftist strongmen in Latin America to tighten their hold on power.
A Marxist government in Peru could give an opportunity for foreign powers to move in. Trumpet writers Andrew Miiller and Jeremiah Jacques wrote in their 2019 article “Preparing to Storm America’s Castle”:
This geographic reality is why Russia and China want to challenge U.S. dominance in the Caribbean. These aspiring superpowers are forging alliances with socialist governments in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. If these Latin dictatorships become staging grounds for Russia and China, a coalition of nations could potentially cut off U.S. access to the Panama Canal and seal off the Straits of Florida and the Yucatan Channel.
As shocking as this scenario sounds, the Bible reveals that enemies will seize control of the world’s most strategic maritime choke points and lay siege to the United States. … The results will be devastating.
