LOA Trapped Miner of the Year: Yonni Berrios

From MyFoxPhilly.com:

Chilean miner 21, Yonni Barrios, has some explaining to do this afternoon after inviting his wife and mistress to his rescue after 69 days underground.

Barrios made headlines in Chile when he acknowledged having a mistress for 10 years after he was trapped in the mine disaster and things didn’t look good for the 33 trapped miners.

His wife, Marta Salinas, was at the same candlelight vigil as Susana Valenzuela, the alleged mistress. She later discovered the relationship between Barrios and Valenzuela.

Barrios and Salinas have been married for 28 years, but Salinas said she drew the line when her husband wanted both women on live TV.
Wow, so this guy is trapped underground for over 2 months and then asks his wife and side piece to meet him when he gets out?! How soon before my man can get on a Chilean postage stamp?!

Real talk, though, this whole Chilean miner story has gotten way too much media attention. You'd think the entire Kardashian family were trapped underground based on the media frenzy. I guarantee that when CFR darling Henry Kissinger and CIA director Richard Helms carried out the assassination of Chilean President Allende in '73, all because he refused to allow his country to be pillaged by U.S. corporations, that it barely made back-page news. And it was even less of a news story when the U.S. installed brutal dictator Pinochet who terrorized Chile and gave U.S. Corporations near complete control of the Chilean Economy--including the copper mining industry.

Hey NV. No one gives a fuck. LET A PLAYER PLAY. That's what this is all about.

Oh yeah, I forgot, thanks.

Let's take a second to recognize who got these guys out...The United States. The drill-made in PA. The operator- American Jeff Heart http://in.reuters.com/article/idINIndia-52085120101010
Emergency drill parts(13 tons) flown by UPS in under 48 hours from PA. The list goes on. All of this accomplished in record time. Wonder if Obama will invite any of the US crew to the white house for some recognition? Doubtful. Those evil corporations.

They said the miners would be trapped until Christmas, but the American crew got them out in the middle of October. Unbelievable! Oakley gave them the sunglasses they wore on their way up. Too bad they couldn't get 501s and 5150s to complete the cipher. USA! USA! USA!

In Barrios news, both his wife and mistress were gross. I'd rather take my chances in the hole.

Oh, real T? That was Team America who got those miners out? I guess that explains why this has been such a media circus. Team America likes to steer our attention to its do-gooder shit, and hide its hand in its more questionable activities in Realpolitik.

I know patriotism isn't really what's popping in the streets right now, but America can do some cool shit and it's OK to recognize that. Anywayz, can we give Berrios his props for having his wife and side chick show up to the mine?! So much balls on that guy (pause pause pause)!

Yes, yes, it's a fine country, Harley Davidson, Coca-Cola, all of that. Best country on the planet if the adage i've been taught to recite most of my life is true, and not having visited every country on the planet, I'll have to give US the benefit of the doubt and agree that it's a true. However, we've also got the most brutally violent foreign policy on the planet. Just have a look at the list of countries we've bombed since World War II: China '45, '46, '50-'53; Korea '50-'53; Guatemala '54, '60, '67-'69; Indonesia '58; Vietnam '61-'73; Congo '64; Laos '64-'73; Peru '65; Cambodia '69-'70; El Salvador most of the '80s; Nicaragua throughout the '80s; Lebanon '83, '84; Grenada '83; Bosnia '85; Libya '86; Panama '89; Iraq 91-...; Sudan '98; former Yugoslavia '99; Afghanistan '98, '02-...; Pakistan '08-...

This is not country you read about in your history book, or hear about on the carefully-tailored evening news. Over the course of the last hundred years or so the U.S. has been transformed into the military arm that the New Word Order types use to shape and prepare the planet for eventual one-world government.

How did this become a referendum on US policy? I'm talking about a man staring death in the face who has his wife and mistress meeting him at the proverbial crossroads. Can we please shelve the political talk and give my man some props?!
