Venezuela's Political Disaster - April 26, 2008
I am very pleased and proud to report that Venezuelan Hero Yon Goicoechea won the 2008 Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty:
Yon is a man who decided to take the right path to life free from corruption, and with a message and actions full of peace, and civility!
Going back to outrageous political disaster in Venezuela, the next link is to interview to Juan Jose Diaz former personal pilot of Chavez's presidential aircraft:
Mr. Diaz reports abuse of power including one occasion where the Presidential aircraft had to keep going in circles around the Simon Bolivar airport for about one hour while Chavez concluded his meeting with thugs. All commercial aircrafts were denied landing for the same time period. This is while Russian speaking Cubans manage the Venezuelan airport operations.
The next link is to opinion article "Carta Conmovedora" written by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat concerning a Venezuelan rancher kidnapped, and allegedly taken to Colombia. Chavez allegedly has not made any efforts to negotiate the freedom of this honorable man, nor the hundreds of Venezuelans kept prisoners by Colombian guerrillas. Please know that there have been press reports that while Chavez freed known Colombian hostages, Venezuelans were allegedly kidnapped in simultaneous operations thus maintaining the same amount of hostages:
Venezuelans need help from developed governments and international organizations to restore democracy and end corruption.
