  •  Not sure I agree with "war" (6+ / 0-)

    against Venezuela. Perhaps another attempted coup/regime change as we saw in 2002, which turned out to be a failure. Most recently Uruguay, and also Honduras in 2009, suffered coups supported by US interests. And of course numerous other Latin American coups in the past century.

    I would hope Venezuela has learned to beware of NGOs such as NED which function as see eye a fronts with a mission to destabilize governments which are seen to undermine US interests by not allowing them unencumbered access to their resources, their markets and their (relatively) cheap labor.

        Nice to think that the next revolution -- the world wide revolution against the capitalist economic system -- will be live-streamed.  Now if we can only protect the internet!

        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!
