Iranian opposition similar to Venezuelan opposition against abusive leaders need the help of other nations to succeed in restoring democracy. The United States' policy of non-interference as repeated by the State Department's press briefing will only allow that these infamous leaders remain in power using their corrupted and megalomaniac dictatorial plans.
MR. KELLY: Yeah. Well, the President about an hour ago addressed the issue of the Iranian elections. I’ll repeat what he said, that it’s for the Iranian people to decide about their future. This is not about us. This is about Iran. Having said that, of course, I think it’s very – or we think as a government that it’s very important that the universal right of people to express themselves peacefully, that this right has to be respected. And of course, we condemn any acts of violence that led to the deaths of these demonstrators.
Exactly the same situation happened in Venezuela when citizens started to march in protest of Chavez's abuse of power. Venezuelans were devastated when they heard that the U.S.A. will not help them at all. Chavez has weapons and access to resources that citizens can not use in their defense. Thus, they have been stuck with the pathetic leader, and thugs unable to restore democracy watching every day their freedoms and human rights disappear.
Hugo Chavez, and not Venezuelans, is supporting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as reported by Le Monde.
Chavez continues to get involved every where instead of reaching out to Venezuelan citizens in need to assistance. At this time, there are allegedly 71 cases of swine flu in Venezuela. Further, Chavez continues his ridiculous speech that it is bad to be rich while he himself allegedly has gathered whatever amounts of funds since keeping himself in power. I ask journalists to please inform uneducated Venezuelan citizens what the reality is, and to stop listening to make believes.
