La próxima me cuentan una de vaqueros

El presidente de la Asamblea Nacional habló sobre un "apoyo internacional" a transportistas venezolanos. El diputado considera que hay "serios" indicios de un plan para desestabilizar el país. Elpobre mongólico no entiende que basta con que respeten a los ciudadanos, respeten la alternabilidad democrática y permitan contar limpiamente los votos y todo se estabilizará por si solo. Facilito...

Next time, tell me one of cowboys

Venezuelan National Assembly president "thinks" that a destabilizing plan lies behind public transportation strikes in Venezuela, including "hiring of hit men by foreign agencies to kill drivers", he daid to be "certain" that transportation stoppage throughout the nation to protest insecurity and poor road conditions "are supported from the outside".

He added that the USA "will try by means of bribery and investment in US $ to take a social line to attack the government". It looks like for the deputy we do not have rampant criminals killing every one not just bus drivers. No. It is the USA paying hit men "to kill some drivers to create a huge conflict."

The deputy shows very poor imagination, because bus drivers have been dying for years...

Venezuela: Eyes MiGs, again

Since the military came topower in 1998, they have been preparing public opinion to buy Russian planes. Every year they invent a new excuse for the president to buy the MiGs and other Russian arms. Now the pressure has increased because Chávez has enough oil money to do it.

Congratulations and... enjoy your rubbles!!!

Is Latin America doomed?

Poll says it is not. Mundamericas, a Mexico based polling firm, detected that Latin America's public opinion is in flux. Cuba's economic disaster and Venezuela's failure to reduce poverty -despite its oil boom- have convinced many Latin Americans that old guard Stalinism does not work.

With right leadership, Latin public opinion can rapidly shift toward support for free market and political reforms. Mundamericas considers that in most Latin American countries the model of a market economy is accepted.

While China, India, Vietnam and Eastern Europe roll out the red carpet to foreign investors, Latin American politicians should take the lead and woo foreign investments, rather than reciting outdated Stalinists slogans.

Venezuela: Handling fraud with gloves

OAS Report on Venezuela 2005 parlamentary elections

"In his preliminary report to the Permanent Council, Rubén Perina, Chief of the Electoral Observation Mission that monitored the election of legislators to Venezuela’s National Assembly, said the mission had noted “an atmosphere of polarization and political tension marked by mutual mistrust, which became a central factor of the electoral contest.”

Perina explained that the opposition had stated its lack of confidence in the National Electoral Council (CNE) as a reason for not taking part in the election, although he noted that “at the request of opposition political parties, the CNE did institute significant guarantees for their participation.”

According to the team that monitored the Venezuela process, several outstanding issues require “special and urgent attention”—among them regularizing the CNE; making computerized voting machines secure, reliable and user-friendly; and updating the voter registry.“Participation, mutual trust and democratic coexistence are achieved through dialogue that is systematic, frank, inclusive and based on good faith,” Perina asserted.

“Given that the Mission observed, while in Venezuela, that this type of dialogue was lacking or precarious, and in light of the upcoming elections, it would be extremely beneficial for the country if the government were to encourage a dialogue of this nature with all political interests.”
