U.S. More Intent on Blocking Chavez - Venezuela's leader seeks to rally...
'...opposition to Washington as elections near in the region.

'WASHINGTON The Bush administration is stepping up efforts to counter leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez as he builds opposition to U.S. influence in Latin America.

U.S. diplomats have sought in recent years to mute their conflicts with Chavez, fearing that a war of words with the flamboyant populist could raise his stature at home and abroad. But in recent months, as Chavez has sharpened his attacks and touched American nerves by increasing ties with Iran American officials have become more outspoken about their intention to isolate him.'

1. Bushco does not have the ability to isolate Chavez
the more they denounce him, the higher his popularity in the world rises. If they take him out, they make him a martyr and exponentially increase the hatred towards America.

2. With the neocons flocking to lament their ideology of late...
you'd think they'd realize that smearing and attacking Chavez is just as delusional.

7. Hell there are DUers that call Chavez a dictator.
My guess is that the administration are liars and the DUers are fucking idiots that take that line.

5. Not U.S. but the block head occupiers in the White House.

When your credibility is negative you place a positive value on those you oppose. I would say the U.S. diplomats are/were correct.
