Venezuela's Political Disaster - April 22, 2006

Dear Journalists,

The news from Venezuela are so bad that it is hard to prioritize the order in which I will present outline of the major issues that have taken place in the abused nation this week:

- Crime is worst than ever. The Washington Post clearly identifies the roots of the crime when Chavez always says that "It's OK to steal in order to eat." And, that "The rich are condemned to hell. Christ himself condemned them," Chavez said in a speech Tuesday. "I say it from the heart: to be rich is evil." The good news is that Chavez and thug supporters are richer than ever! There is a PowerPoint presentation circulating the Internet showing how his family came from poor to very rich in just several months.

- Cocaine exports through Venezuela are on the rise as reported by on the link below and major newspapers in Venezuela:

- Complete lack of Diplomacy rules Venezuela with constant daily embarrassments for those who care and disagree with Chavez. Below please find article written by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat criticizing Chavez's sauvage and undiplomatic rhetoric against United States Ambassador William Brownfield:

The very ugly truth about what we all knew comparing Chavez's megalomania with Saddam Hussein was told by Chavez himself announcing in Uruguay that he would/will blow up Venezuela's oil fields as Hussein did during the Gulf War in 1991:

Venezuelans are hostages of Chavez and need international help in order to correct the current political disaster.

In strange better news, Teodoro Petkoff, owner of announced his candidacy for President of Venezuela. Since the 1960s Petkoff has been a controversial figure as explained by Alexander Boyd in this link:

I met Petkoff in Washington, DC in 1981 or 1982 when he came to a conference in Georgetown University among other Venezuelan politicians and I worked as a trainee at the Embassy of Venezuela. I had no comments since I was just listening and watching his demeanor. I also saw him a few times in Caracas in the early 1990s in restaurants at upscale El Hatillo. I believe that his children attended American colleges. I will double check.
