  •  Chavez is a loon, plain and simple. (0+ / 0-)

    What was the latest conspiracy theory of his -- that Obama had some secret program for inducing cancer in South American leaders?  And holds kooky summits with Iran called the "G2"?  Yes, I think it's great that he has made Venezuela more equitable, but he is an absolute nut.  This is the guy that has pledged to stand by Iranian president Ahmadinejad through thick and thin.  The demonizing of Chavez is well earned.

    •  Not exactly (0+ / 0-)

      He may be a bit paranoid but he good reason.  Bush Junior trued ti assassinate him and then instigated a coup against him.  With that sort of meddling, I am not surprised he has become a bit paranoid.

      Oh yeah and heaven forbid that any nation should hold an economic summit where the almighty US is not in charge.

      •  More Than 100 CIA Assassination Attempts On Castro (1+ / 0-)

        The media tries to denigrate Chavez in every way they can.  Chavez is not being paranoid to believe that the U.S. and their right wing puppets in South and Central America are trying to put him out of commission.

        The U.S. supported coup attempt against Chavez in Venezuela in 2002 was on the verge of killing him.  Documents from the Vatican's ambassador to Venezuela verifies that.  

        More than 100 armed paramilitaries from Colombia under Uribe's regime were arrested inside Venezuela.  They admitted they were there to assassinate Chavez and promote a counter-revolution.

        Documents obtained from the U.S. government document that the the CIA made over 100 attempts to assassinate Cuba's Castro, not to mention the many assassinations of African and  South and Central American leaders who dared to depart from the U.S. orders over the last fifty years.

        Today, the U.S. is openly assassinating foreign citizens (and even our own citizens) in drone attacks in foreign countries.

        It is not "paranoia" when the U.S. really does want you dead.

        Convict Bush, Cheney and their torture cabal. Support universal health care,unions, WikiLeaks and Occupy Wall Street! Time for a totally new, democratic economic system. Turn the corporations into worker cooperatives!
