Gordon P. advises, Venezuela's "left-wing leader" Hugo Chavez is apparently moving Venezuela toward "one-man" totalitarian rule, and Bush appears to be responding by rattling sabres in his general direction. It also just happens to be the case that Venzeula happens to also supply roughly 15% of the U.S.'s imported oil...Given that Condi Rice has _already_ publicly described Venezuela's government as "a negative force in the region," might one reasonably expect the Official Addition of Venezuela to Bush's "Axis of Evil" in the very near future ??? Jacob Hornberger offers an interesting analysis of recent CIA machinations in Latin America in his article "An Anti-Democracy Foreign Policy: Guatemala," published in the latest online FFF.
