SHARE Saturday, March 13, 2010 The very sad fact is that Cindy Sheehan is misinformed!

Years ago it might have taken days for Chavez' rasher statements to reach the disbelieving ears of Europeans, North Americans or even those in Asia and elsewhere in the Pacific who give a damn about what's happening along southern Caribbean shores. The time differential and the cost of reporting trivialities were not unsubstantial and lunacies were kind of expected from faraway places.

Part of the problem must undoubtedly be laid at the door of President Chavez ... as a military career strategist he will certainly be aware of the intricate patterns of subversion that constantly conspire to inflict substantial damage to each and every move he makes towards his personal dream of an egalitarian Venezuela
SHARE Thursday, February 19, 2009 Agapov backing away from clincher deals on Las Brisas, Las Cristinas gold mines...
In an exclusive interview in London, Monday, Agapov told me that, while he's "somewhat disappointed" that his Vancouver (Canada) based mining company, Rusoro Mining Ltd., has been stymied in its efforts to achieve a corporate takeover of Gold Reserve in last week's court decision, it's simply a further milestone in the ultimate destiny of Las Brisas which, like its neighbor Las Cristinas
SHARE Tuesday, January 13, 2009 VHeadline's wrong dancing partner ... will Venezuela come back to haunt us? ... in pitchforks!
Simply. Simon says "Lie after lie about facts known to be contrary to what you state. You treat your readers as juveniles. You justify Rusoro's offer for GRZ as generous..."
MOI? Scarcely! Simon insists on putting words into my mouth ...
