Targeting Chavez


Chavez is targeted for doing the right thing.

by Stephen Lendman

Since taking office in February 1999, Chavez has been Washington's number one Latin American enemy.

He worries US officials for good reason. He's a powerful threat. He represents a good example. Venezuela's social democracy shames America's. Bolivarianism works.

Anti-Chavista rhetoric and accusations are heating up. So far it hasn't matched former New York Times Caracas correspondent Simon Romero.
