Is Latin America technically part of the Western world?

Yes, the area speaks a Western European language and the vast majority practice Western religions so they are part of the West culturally speaking. The influence of Western culture varies from country to country (least in Bolivia and Guatemala most in Chile, Argentina & Uruguay). Politically, they are as much of our allies as say the Spanish or the Portuguese but several oppose U.S. policies in spite of being culturally Western (Venezuela, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua).
