    They still remember the hunger and the homelessness under the old regime.

    Anyone interested in history should read about the French Revolution. A lengthy 8-10 campaign of the French to be free from their monarchy, bloody and relentless. It ended with the Kings head on a stick paraded around Paris.

    If the Venezuelan Warlords who stole, pilfered and violated the sanctity of human beings rights think they are above reproach, they had better appreciate what hungry, desperate people are willing to do. No amount of global Communist support will ever destroy the Will of Men (or People kind) to be free!

    The French Revolution didn't end with the King's head on a stick. After the King's head was put on a stick, the Revolution turned into the Terror. The French Revolutionaries themselves were tracked down and beheaded. The leader, Robespierre among them. The Revolution and the Terror ended when Napoleon became dictator. DICTATOR.

    The dictatorship lasted until the French wondered if maybe they made a mistake and restored the Monarchy under the House of Bourbon. In 1830, the French tried again in a much less bloody coup and finally got it right.

    So singing the praises of the French Revolution is actually an announcement that you are looking forward to the bloody dictatorship that follows.

    See the Cuban Revolution for a refresher.
