It seems that recently Hugo Chavez is on a conciliatory mood shaking hands with world leaders, and with opposition leaders including Maria Corina Machado. Just a few weeks ago, Chavez was insulting Maria Corina Machado stereotyping her with what he may believe are wrong qualities. (Please see article in the resources below).
I found interesting that while Hugo Chavez was greeting members of the National Assembly there was a cheerleading group yelling “that’s the way to govern ….” Sadly, those cheering may be unable to see the reality in which Venezuelans live under Hugo Chavez’s regime, or may have been paid to cheer.
The following link is circulating the Internet presenting list of items that Chavez failed to mention during the 2010 review speech to the National Assembly.
Chavez foes wary over calls for reconciliation
Response to Hugo Chavez's seven hour speech to the nation by one concerned citizen:
The term stochastic terrorism brought up with the January 8, 2011 tragedy in Arizona is defined as the use of mass communications to stir up random lone wolves ... So, has Hugo Chavez being purposely creating supporters in Venezuela fed by hatred against the developed world? That is, since 1998 every week Chavez has been seizing the nation’s networks with a wild monologue at times full of hatred and name calling against individuals.
Hopefully, with his new conciliatory mood, Hugo Chavez should restore hope in Venezuela, and control violence, and other abuses against citizens as listed previously. Chavez should do as the Law of Reciprocity’s Golden rule states "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".
Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat criticized in his column the Organization of American States’ negligence to assist Venezuela to restore democracy.
Ya don José Miguel habló
Venezuelans need the aid from the International Court of Justice, and world leaders, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
