Hugo Chavez stinging diatribe against his nemesis, George Bush, was hardly unexpected given the CIA attempted to orchestrate an abortive coup against him in 2003? It seems we only like democracies which result in electing leaders who are willing bend to our (US corporate) interests. Sadly, the US has a long history of stifling popular movements in Latin America. Remember the School of the Americas which provides expert training to Latin American military personnel in the delicate art of torture? While a number of media pundits expressed outrage over Chavez's intemperate language, these same pundits remained silent when Bush effectively torpedoed years of quiet diplomacy by calling heads of state "Axis of Evil" and even mocked the 'pint sized North Korean leader' as a 'pygmy'! What hypocrisy!

Are you a college sophomore? You sound like it. Do you want to get serious?
I am willing to take you on, but I just want to know if you are willing. I am speaking about a real discussion, Jag. Are you there?

It is always a pleasure to see someone like yourself engage in a reasoned discourse about serious issues, instead of resorting to personal attacks, the last resort of those without any ground to stand on.

Trudy--perhaps you are not familiar with Jag's posts and letters.
His writings are filled with half-truths, distortions and innuendo. He has been known and caught on this forum cutting and pastings portions of people's writings and then twisting them for his own purpose.
Jag's writings are filled with personal attacks against the Jewish people, Israel and others who does not fit his distorted view of muslim terrorism (i.e. it is all the Jews/Israels fault).
What ground are you standing on?????
