61. Someone who doesn't seem to have a clue about this aspect
Edited on Tue Aug-09-05 02:34 PM by Judi Lynn
of American history of interfering in Latin America through propping up vicious dictators could get a lightning fast condensed idea from looking at these sketches. If you've read here long, no doubt you've already seen them used to help people who are struggling!

Hugo Chavez has had a chance to see our handiwork much farther back than just his term as Venezuela's President. He lead a coup unsuccessfully against a vicious, dirty dictator, Carlos Andres Perez, who is also a friend of George H. W. Bush. Carlos Andres Perez ordered his military to fire into a crowd of poor people who were protesting the fact he had significantly raised their only transportation costs: buses, far, far more than they could afford.
The massacre was called "El Caracazo."

Click on the thumbnails if you wish to see photos of this event:

Hugo Chavez was later pardoned by a following Venezuelan President, and Carlos Andres Perez was impeached for massive corruption. He is a prominent voice in the Venezuelan "opposition" currently, living at times in New York, or Miami, and calling for the assassination of Hugo Chavez.

On edit: Excuse, needed to clarify I didn't mean YOU are the one without a clue. Wanted to clear that up! Thanks.
