33. A normal pattern after each exposure of US meddling in Venezuela's affairs
Whenever Chavez has found out about US dirty tricks (coup plans, financing the *opposition*, assassination plots, etc.) he has revealed them to the world putting the US on the defensive. The US in turn ratchets up the propaganda machines and cranks out the *Chavez is paranaoid, US isn't meddling, US had nothing to do with the coup, US doesn't finance the oppoosition, blah, blah, blah* lies that we are now reading. The only *news* the MSM prints about Venezuela is negative and anti-Chavez. This is nothing more than a repeat of what its done over the decades with Cuba, Guatemala, Chile, and any other country who wouldn't kowtow to Uncle Sam.

This article from venezuelanalysis.com might give you some perspective.

...This defeat for the U.S. can be related to the line of repeated attacks of U.S. officials against Venezuela. Presided over by Condoleezza Rice, they surely approved a plan that could have been inspired by one that was agreed to November 17, 1970, which had five points. It had been presented to President Nixon by Kissinger.

This line of continuous attacks from high officials in less than ten days (Rice, Roger Noriega, Robert Zoellick, Marc Grossman, the brother of Bush, and Porter Goss, the head of the CIA) is something new. But it is not a coincidence.

They have to be applying some decision that was made in certain high levels of the state department. One must pay attention. Why be surprised if someone insinuates in a meeting to be thinking of an assassination?
