    lol yeah that'll really help icon_rolleyes.gif

    this is what happens when citizens become lazy and stupid and actually expect the government to be in your favor. This is why the US stands up for 2nd Amendment rights, because it's happening here also.

    JudahTheMaccabee saidPray to keep Venezuela safe from the hands of the anti-democratic, conspiratorial, fascist opposition. As professional losers (no national opposition movement has lost at the ballot box more times than the Venezuelan opposition) we can only hope that once the inevitable second attempt to accede through violence comes, the failure and the backlash is every bit as strong as in 2002.


    in other words, Venezuela is screwed

    kiwiLifter saidGreat, more anti democratic propaganda from the same muppet. icon_rolleyes.gif

    The US government would love another anti democratic right wing puppet regime installed in Venezuela. Then the likes of Exxon and Chevron could get cheap access to the oil again.

    Chavez raised the royalties and taxes on Big Oil, the money has gone to eliminating poverty.

    The OP also avoids the racism in the political movement he has joined, notice their skin color - you will be lucky to find any of the native mixed ones amongst them.



    I will come and post this as many times as it has to be necessary to inform the world. Your annoyance and insults makes me stronger, remember! The real democratic people are peaceful, and we are!

    Not just native, try searching for any African descent among the rioters also...


    Now guys, this question comes into my mind.. How do you know whats happening in Venezuela if you dont live here? Have you seen the militians hitting and shotting pellets against innocent citizens who were on a march and walking near on the streets? They didnt have any guns to protect themselves man! I did see that yesterday in Altamira, Caracas.. DID YOU???

    I called BS on Iraq's WMD propaganda pushed by the Yanks and Brit govts. 75% plus of Yankees swallowed that BS. I have never been in Iraq, but I still knew what was happening.

    Identifying propaganda and political agendas is very easy.

    You are part of the small self serving white middle class who hop into bed with Big Oil and the US Government to overthrow Venezuela democracy and seize the country's wealth.

    A story that has repeated itself through out the Americas, from the evil Pinochet regime beloved by Margret Thatcher to the "Dirty Wars".




    It doesn't matter. The US will strangle Venezuela's economy and will eventually get where they want nevertheless. Venezuelan oil is like crack to the US and they will do anything to get it no matter how long it takes, so it doesn't make any sense to keep putting people in misery. It's pointless. At least now the US Oil companies will no longer be able to lie about the quality of the crude. Besides the Current System is already implanted in more than half of the population. The US and the oil companies can't do the things they did in the past without giving the people some quality of living or they will go back to the Regime. If they want the oil then Close PDVSA and give it to those US companies for the sake of the lives of those innocent people.

    No, you the opposition, with US government and Big Oil convenience, have for many years plotted to overthrow democracy in Venezuela and install a puppet regime to keep the ethnics down while looting the countries wealth.

    Why don't you explain to everyone why its only the white ones rioting?


    What are you talking about? It sure doesn't look like a white only protest to me. I see a lot of mixed races and native looking people and even some pretty african looking ones. Half the countries population is mixed race and those are most of the people I see in the protests. A close venezuelan friend of mine is half black and half spanish and neither he nor any of his family members support this government.

    The past abuses of big oil and right wing dictators do not justify a far left government using violence against peaceful protestors. If there is one thing I've learned about latin american politics is that there is a fine line between a far right and a far left anti-democratic leader.

    What has happened to Venezuela since Chavez came to power has been an absolute tragedy and very heartbreaking. A once proud and rich nation has reduced to division and poverty by an inept socialist regime. So I'm praying for the Venezuelan people. It will take decades to recover from the mess Chavez has left behind.

    Venezuelan violence began with students protest over poor security

    AP An anti-government demonstrator holds a representation of Venezuela's national flag in front a burning barricade in the Altamira nebghbourhood of Caracas on Friday.

    Major Venezuelan cities have been roiled by violent protests in recent days but the unrest actually began far from the capital with a little-known incident on a college campus in a city that now seems under siege.

    Just over a week before the coordinated February 12 opposition rallies across the country, students at the University of the Andes in San Cristobal were protesting an attempted rape of young woman on campus.

    The students were outraged at the brazen assault on their campus, which underscored long-standing complaints about deteriorating security under President Nicolas Maduro and his predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez.

    But what really set them off was the harsh police response to their initial protest, in which several students were detained and allegedly abused, as well as follow-up demonstrations to call for their release, according to students and people who live in San Cristobal, a city on Venezuela’s remote Andean border.

    “It was shocking not just to students but to all of San Cristobal,” said Gaby Arellano, a 27-year-old student leader who has been involved in the national opposition campaign. “It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

    The protests expanded and grew more intense, drawing in more non-students angry about crime in general, which led to more people being detained. Students at other universities decided to march in Caracas, which grew into a nationwide campaign when the prominent opposition leaders decided to get involved.

    The main rally on February 12 in the capital turned violent, resulting in three deaths from gunshots and then the jailing of opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez. Now, protests that continued throughout the country Friday, and are particularly fierce in San Cristobal, rarely, if ever, mention the attempted rape.

    “I’m protesting because of the insecurity, for the scarcity and the abuse of power that we have been experiencing,” said Marcia Garcia, a 30-year-old mother in the Los Agustinos neighborhood of San Cristobal, where patrolling soldiers have strung coils to control protesters who lob rocks and Molotov cocktails. “I’m tired of waiting five or six hours in line for a kilo of flour.”

    Today, as the anti-government movement has snowballed into a political crisis the likes of which Venezuela’s socialist leadership hasn’t seen since a 2002 coup attempt, San Cristobal remains a hotbed of unrest.

    The government on Thursday said it would send paratroopers to aid hundreds of soldiers already in place to restore order and the president has said he would consider imposing martial law in the area.

    Mr. Maduro, it should be noted, has a very different version of events in San Cristobal, which is in the western state of Tachira that borders on Colombia.

    Mr. Maduro says the city is under siege by right-wing paramilitaries under orders from former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, and pointed to recent attacks on government-run supermarkets as evidence of a plan to convert San Cristobal into a Venezuelan Benghazi. And the government providing support to the subversives is San Cristobal’s Mayor Daniel Ceballos, an ally of Leopoldo Lopez, who was jailed this week for inciting violence that led to three deaths in anti-government protests on February 12.

    “Tachira is being attacked from Colombia,” Mr. Maduro said. “We’ll defend Tachira with our lives if we need to.”

    Mr. Uribe has dismissed the charges, saying they’re an attempt by Mr. Maduro distract Venezuelans from his own mismanagement of the economy.

    Residents on Friday tried to resume their normal activities as the smell of burnt trash still lingered. Public transportation has yet to be restored, many stoplights are out and students are gearing up for what they promise will be an extended fight. As warplanes buzz the sky, there is also widespread resentment of the heavy troop presence.

    “Why is the president sending these troops here? As far as I know, the military is supposed to protect Venezuelans, not attack them,” said Jose Hernandez, a 31-year-old construction worker.

    San Cristobal, a rural city of Caracas, is an unlikely place to mount an anti-government putsch. But with its disproportionately large student population and longstanding cultural and economic ties with its more conservative neighbour, it has long been an opposition stronghold.

    The state of Tachira, of which San Cristobal is the largest city and capital, was only one of two where opposition candidate Henrique Capriles defeated Hugo Chavez in 2012 presidential elections. Last April, residents of San Cristobal voted nearly 3 to 1 in favour of Capriles in the race against Mr. Maduro to elect Mr. Chavez’s successor.

    Its independent streak may have to do with its isolation, said Arellano, who grew up in Tachira.

    “I think people in Tachira have always stood against abuses and being trampled,” she said.

    The United Nation's Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) expressed on Tuesday concerns about the situation of Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo López, who has been held in custody since February 18, when he turned himself in to authorities.

    As she answered questions in a press conference in Geneva, the OHCHR's spokesperson, Ravina Shamdasani, remarked that López's case has been subject to changes.

    The spokesperson highlighted that the case needed to be handled pursuant to due process, and noted that if there were merits to indict López, charges should be brought promptly, otherwise he should be released.

    Poverty dropped massively under Chavez. He made US Big Oil start paying a fair price for Venezuela's crude. Big Oil and the US government have worked hard to destroy Venezuelan democracy ever since - like in many other parts of the world.

    Previously Venezuela was a US oil colony.

    Then the brown Venezuelans via free and fair elections finally got a leader who wasn't in the pocket of US and Big Oil. The rich Venezuelans i.e. the white ones were appalled, many fled to the US their spiritual homeland. They continually try to overthrow democracy in Venezuela and reinstall a puppet government so they can siphon off the nation's wealth for themselves and Big Oil again.



    For clarification - was US big oil not paying a fair price for Venezuela's crude previously? Define "fair".

    How has oil production been going in Venezuela? Can you show evidence of how Venezuela was a US oil colony?
