Help to Iran & Venezuela

Dear Journalists,

Happy Father's Day!

While the whole world is watching the oppression and abuse of human rights in Iran infamous Chavez is putting more pressure against freedom of speech in Venezuela:

Govn't pressure on news TV channel Globovisión increases

Watching the Iranian protests reminds me so much of the situation in Venezuela when protesters complaint the questionable results of Chavez's numerous elections wins. However, Venezuelans did not get the media attention that Iran is getting. Hmmm, maybe Iranians have better luck and may not be considered a banana republic of no importance. Sadly, it seems to be the reality.

Hope and Change -- but Not for Iran

State Media Condemn Mousavi, Protesters

Irán con ojos venezolanos

The United Nations, and the Group of Eight (G8) should prepare to assist nations in this type of abusive situations where their democratic votes and human rights are not respected. Nations are not sovereign when the opposition is not able to defend themselves and are at the mercy of the ones in power by force.

The United Nations should intervene and send the blue helmets to Iran to protect the opposition. The Group of Eight (G8) must condemn and act against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad if the results of the elections are corrupted. There should be a new election where the UN would process the ballots with the assistance of the G8.

The same resolution should be applied to Venezuela where their human rights are disappearing at the speed of Chavez's whims.

Please make sure to keep former U.S. President Jimmy Carter away from this situation. He already was a major disaster in Venezuela as an observer where the thugs were allegedly cheating all around him and his staff of the Carter Center.
