Venezuela's Political Disaster - June 14, 2008
In memory of Tim Russert
There is an over all malaise living in Venezuela surrounded by unfairness where Chavez, his family, and those he likes including infamous foreign leaders have financially benefited from his position in power. However, honest workers, and those without political power have to struggle to trade, run their businesses, and keep up with inflation knowing that Chavez is allegedly supporting infamous groups like FARC, et al.
Le Monde published a surprising analysis written by Jean-Pierre Langellier concerning the current financial situation in Venezuela where experts may agree with this findings:
Au Venezuela, la révolution est en marche, mais pas l'économie, malgré la manne pétrolière
And right-to-the-point comments from Isabel Lara published in The Washington Post:
Falling for Hugo Chávez
and, Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat published in El Universal:
Chávez que se devuelve se desnuca
Oddly enough Chavez does have a few individuals working for him who could guide him to snap out of his deranged behavior. Perhaps, that is what is happening with Chavez's new approach to improve relations with Colombia, and the United States.
However, many people suspect that Chavez's recent speeches are because he may know that the International Court of Justice may be waiting for him following Interpol's findings.
Venezuelans need help from developed governments and international organizations to restore democracy and end corruption.
