    There are a number of people on this board who have defended the authoritarian rule of Chavez. Instead of concentrating on his security situation, we have a ruler who spends his country's scant wealth on Russian Migs, combat helicopters, and submarines. How is it that Russian made submarines are going to improve the social and security environment in Caracas? Maybe creating a hostile business climate by confiscating private property has helped. No? Is it the run away inflation? The alliances with Iran and Belarus? Probably not. Well then it must be closing down media outlets that has improved conditions in the Kingdom of Chavez.

    Simple, they refuse to educate themselves and/or believe what is before them. It's sad, but seems where the 'educated class' wishes to be.

    Violent crime has escalated in Venezuela. Hugh has been reluctant to crack down on the criminal gangs because they come from the poorer classes, which is where he gets his political power.

    gatewaypundit.blogspot.com?


    I've been to venezuela. Recently. I can walk around the streets of the towns and cities there, comfortably and in relative safety.

    I wonder if you would be comfortable walking around alone, and unarmed, the streets of Sadr City, Fallujah, and Basra?

    Brown people kill each other. You don't really need to analyze it much more than that. The involvement of whites seems to have only varying influence.
