Massive Turn Around Needed
By Ted Bohne

seems that the unelected Bush crew has decided that President Hugo Chavez
of Venezuela is now a focal point for terrorism including Islamic terrorists.
Of course this could put Venezuela in Bush's crosshairs, or more correctly
It's important to remember that the US has already tried and failed
miserably in a poorly executed coup de etat against Mr. Chavez. Yet
Chavez has visited the US after this debacle bringing millions of gallons
of heating oil for less fortunate people in the North Eastern States
and has stated with equivocation that his country isn't preparing any
mischief against the US.
In fact, Mr. Chavez's sin is in nationalizing his oil from the greedy
US oil giants who are currently hauling in as much a 10,000,000,000
dollars per QUARTER of the fiscal year. Mr. Cheney states the US economy
is booming? Well, only the part that includes people making over a hundred
grand a year. Most of the Countries of South and Central America have
suffered crimes against their sovereignty as far back as the end of
the last century.
For any who might wish to explore these offenses, they might wish to
read the writings of Smedly Butler, Major General, USMC, Retired. http://www.corporatemofo.com/stories/030928warracket.htm
Then there are the murders committed by or for Argentina by the US with
the assassination of Argentine President Salvadore Allende and replacing
him with the thug Augusto Pinochet. Then there is the recent ousting
by the US of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and again, replaced
by a pro American military thug.
This is not the only time Haiti has been mugged by the US. President
Dumarsais Estimé is overthrown by the US backed Military and
Francois (Papa Doc) Duvalier is elected president. He is succeed by
his son Jean Claude (Baby Doc) Duvalier. During this American incursion
20 to 60,000 people were murdered by these American representatives.
There is the training of salient terrorists by Oliver North's crew,
the Contras to oust Daniel Ortega a democratic socialist who is currently
running for president in Nicaragua. Peru, El Salvador, Guatemala, and
the list goes on.
The United States has yet to engage in a "fair" deal with
any country. Russia has not decided to form a relationship with Venezuela
by selling President Chavez the latest of Military hardware and weaponry
and the Venezuelan Air Force is dumping off it's F-16s at a flea market.
Venezuela is one of the largest suppliers of oil to the US. It sits
on top of perhaps the largest known accumulation of "hard"
crude. Clearly with the seven year catastrophic history of the Bush
Administration, if Mr. Chavez is killed, the world will know who did
it. I would expect if this happens, George Bush et al wouldn't be able
to have a piddle without an entourage of armed men.
The world isn't likely to take a great deal more of this disintegrating
country's chicanery. Mr. Chavez has been hard at work forming relationships
with former enemies of the US including China and Vietnam. This is true
of Libyan President Mohamar Kaddafi.
Americas belligerent, bellicose behavior with an unelected, illegitimate,
Republican regime, has seen more to the loss of respect for the US than
any other action in History. There also seem to be 'slim pickins' among
the Democrats as well. In any case, a massive turn around of American
foreign policy is in order. This will do more to make the US safe than
any action in Iraq which is well known to have never been a threat to
the US. Remember, each day we wait to dismiss the current regime, American
lives and Iraqi lives are being squandered like drunk's drinking money.
