UPDATED: Venezuela's Political Disaster - April 4, 2009

Dear Journalists,

Each day that passes Chavez is more difficult to understand.

Chavez says he wants to 'reset' relations with US

During the last several days in Venezuela the trial against the police officers who rebelled against Chavez on April 11, 2002 dominated the news. Chavez has prosecuted them for thirty years in prison. Or, as critics are saying they will be jailed as long as Chavez remains in power.

The following link to a letter to the editor written by a witness to the April 11, 2002 shootings against unarmed citizens by alleged Chavez's thugs.

Cartoonist Rayma explains the terrible situation on her editorial cartoon where Chavez's thugs are shown with red t-shirts:

Daniel Duquenal commented on his blog Chavez's justice against the police officers:

Cuba's style justice in Venezuela

Chávez makes controversial statements during Arab tour

Opposition leaders call people to react to "repression"

Next is opinion article written by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat commenting in Chavez spending at least US$50 million in traveling with a group of over 200 supporters.

I have added his article on my blog2, because it seems that El Universal is having technical difficulties where the opinion articles are showing an error message.
