I despise authoritarianism and what it entails: the insult to intelligence, abuse, arrogance, unilateralism. The arrogant, the screamers, those who think they are superior beings, deserve my disdain…

Chemical weapons are so brutal, so terrible, that they were banned after the First World War (1914-1918) and were not used in the Second (1939-1945). They are weapons that kill women, children, non-combatants, in the cruelest way possible.

about the author


He is a universal Guatemalan who loves his country. This year he celebrates four decades of marriage to his wife, Karen. They have two sons, Daniel and David, and he has just received the gift of his first grandchild.

He is a reserve second lieutenant graduated from the Adolfo V. Hall Central Institute and a lawyer from the Mariano Gálvez University. He worked for a time as a journalist and was also an entrepreneur, but he decided to serve from politics to contribute to changing Guatemala and the world.

He became a diplomat, but not one of the desktop ones, but one of action. He has gone from investigating the use of chemical weapons in Syria to directing the UN Pacification Mission in Haiti, where he managed to reduce kidnappings from 400 per month to just two. His performance was so successful that he was promoted to head of all the UN Peacekeeping Missions in the world and later to Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations.

As a politician, he reached the Presidency of Congress in 1992, and managed to pass laws such as bonus 14, and denounced the first narco deputy. He became Guatemala’s ambassador to the United States and from his position opposed Jorge Serrano’s coup d’état and worked alongside the democratic resistance to prevent it from turning the country into a dictatorship. He returned to Guatemala to serve again. In 2019 he ran as a presidential candidate and came in third place.

He is God-fearing and, thanks to his wife’s teachings, a botanist.
