Indecent dictatorship

Dear Journalists,
On this date of January 23, Venezuelans celebrate the defeat of dictator Marcos Pérez Jiménez in 1958.
Sadly, Venezuela is experiencing not just an indecent, but vulgar dictatorship with total disrespect of the Constitution, and surrealisticly adoring the infamous Hugo Chavez like if he were a new idol in Santeria. In case you missed it, Washington Post editorial by Journalist Jackson Diehl brilliantly describes the current situation:
Chavez is not going quietly
Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat discussed the embarrassing situation at the Organization of American States following intervention by Panama’s Ambassador Martinelli Cochez:
 There is no need for poor taste personal attacks and insults. Chavistas must recognize that Hugo Chavez is a dictator and has no place in a democracy!
The International Court of Justice, busy at it is, should make time to prosecute Hugo Chavez, and his thugs who survive him, for fraud if the alleged algorithms and open violation of the vote are true.
Venezuelans need help from world leaders, and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
