Comparisons: Are more people dying in Venezuela than in other countries
in the region?


Are there more or less dying than in countries with pro US
dictators in power, like Guatemala and El Salvador, and
Columbia. Does the memory of death squads applied by
paramilitary death squads installed , trained and coordinated
by the CIA need freshening up a bit, with a few thousand
trade union killings or are the workers still quiet from last
time?


Hard to tell, because there's a Guatemala article maybe
once or twice a year, while there is one on Hugo Chavez
every other day for a year now.

The CIA has a history of interesting media adventures in
Latin America: if more americans knew about this history, it
would be impossible to accuse him of being paranoid when
he claimed imminant US hostility as an excuse to seize
more power.

Those damn Americans will have their way with them, and if they can't get their way they'll pour more money and manpower in until they do. It is imperative that Chavez win the vote on DEC 02.

Pray that they succed and stop the hegemonic march for world $lavery the tyrants want to impose on another poor country, trying to show us American's that there is real democracy at work in this world.

Quote:
The outcome of the Referendum of December 2 is a major historical event first and foremost for Venezuela but also for the rest of the Americas. A positive vote (Vota 'Sí') will provide the legal framework for the democratization of the political system, the socialization of strategic economic sectors, empower the poor and provide the basis for a self-managed factory system. A negative vote (or a successful US-backed civil-military uprising) would reverse the most promising living experience of popular self-rule, of advanced social welfare and democratically based socialism. A reversal, especially a military dictated outcome, would lead to a blood bath, such as we have not seen since the days of the Indonesian Generals' Coup of 1966, which killed over a million workers and peasants or the Argentine Coup of 1976 in which over 30,000 Argentines were murdered by the US- backed Generals.

A decisive vote for 'Sí' will not end US military and political destabilization campaigns but it will certainly undermine and demoralize their collaborators. On December 2, 2007 the Venezuelans have a rendezvous with history.


A very important election that the people will win, because the real strength of a democracy is its people, not its leaders.

America doesn't want us to see how easy it would be for regime change here and so will do whatever they can to end this before it begins. just imagine the idea of redisribution of not just land but the wealth of America being distributed and shared among the poor and helpless here and the rich becoming the nouveau poor! What a conundrum- what a juxtapposition. New slaves for the salt mines and no blisters- yet! :lol: :lol:

Thanks nathaniel for following up on this story.

Common Dreams article from 2000, examining some other media mis-adventures by the CIA.

Cripes! Buy the film rights to Animal Farm? Because they feared the impact of that little story on society.

And then you have this old comment from one Arthur M. Schlesinger:
Quote:
Still unresolved is what impact the campaign had and whether it was worth it. Some of the participants, like Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., who was in the O.S.S. and knew about some of the C.I.A.'s cultural activities, argue that the agency's role was benign, even necessary. Compared with the coups the C.I.A. sponsored in Guatemala, Iran and elsewhere, he said, its support of the arts was some of its best work. "It enabled people to publish what they already believed," he added. "It didn't change anyone's course of action or thought."

"... benign, even necessary?"

What's so benign about filling minds with the wrong ideas/conclusions about other's important philosophical ideas?
