The very sad fact is that Cindy Sheehan is misinformed! In a postscript to an article "Last rites for the USA" published yesterday (March 8) in the (US) national black newspaper, 'San Francisco BayView,' anti-war peace activist made the assertion that the Venezuelan government's Correo del Orinoco English edition [] "Venezuela's first and only English-language weekly newspaper."

Copenhagen Climate Change Summit? As thousands marched against climate change ahead of the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen (Denmark) next week, world leaders have urged rich countries to cut their emissions by at least 40% by 2020 and to provide US$150 billion a year by then to help the world's poor cope with the impact of climate change while increasing the supply of renewable energy.

VENEZUELA: Hugo Chavez' big mouth! Woops ... he's gone and done it again! 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.

It's quite amazing how the US media so readily allows itself to be manipulated! Why am I not surprised by the complete and utter distortions in the mainstream North American media over President Barack Obama's proposal to introduce a form of National Health Service that's been a long time coming to the United States?

Venezuela: Pots Calling Kettles Black Immediately Comes to Mind! The Rev. Vizcaino explicitly regrets the occurrence and that he was writing from the Perija heartland of the anti-Chavez opposition in western Zulia State where, traditionally, the locals view anything and everything emanating from faraway Caracas as alien to their Guaijira antecedents.

Maybe it's time for Venezuela's Foreign Ministry (MRE) to get themselves a Jeffrey Davidow and cut the crap! Of course, the scarcely independent pro-Chavez and government-subsidized rushes to rapture claiming, in a heavily-loaded piece by Tom Hayden that when "Obama implements a campaign pledge, the dinosaurs used to running things push back."

Fears that the corrupt mastermind of Maria Clelia Spinas' slaughter may be able to buy his way out of detention... 58-year-old Manuel Arturo Andrade Duarte could easily buy his way to freedom, and we have information that he has a private jet standing by to whisk him away to Trinidad on the first leg of an international escape plan.

It's clearly a constitutional coup d'etat on the Metropolitan Mayor of Caracas On Tuesday, April 7, the National Assembly passed an Organic Law of Decentralization, which takes away all attributions from the Metropolitan Mayor ... this constitutes a true coup d'etat on the Mayor and is in clear violation of the 1999 Constitution since, on November 23 last, voters democratically elected Antonio Ledezma as Metropolitan Mayor.

Venezuela-Iran: Comprehensive Mapping of Venezuela's Vast Mineral Resources Sanz says that the most significant result from Chavez' visit to Teheran has been a comprehensive mapping of Venezuela's vast mineral resources and that Iran and Venezuela will move in the medium term to explore and certify reserves and to create a joint venture to mine gold, zinc, copper, bauxite, iron and other minerals towards creating a more diverse Venezuelan-Iranian commercial relationship.

AD Deputy Demands Immediate Dismissal of Venezuela's Mibam Minister Rodolfo Sanz... A year after it was nationalized, Siderurgica del Orinoco (SIDOR) production of liquid steel has fallen to 2003 levels with 780,000 tonnes less than in 2007 and US$160 million in losses, although the price of steel on world markets at the time was higher.

Maria Clelia Spinas -- a candle caught in the wind of Venezuelan corruption! Grieving grandmother Heidi Spinas Dora weeps as she takes fond farewell of a daughter who was brutally slaughtered by hired assassins sent by corrupt bankers and a construction contractor to ensure "silence" over a raft of corrupt housing deals that ripped-off the public purse for millions...

Make no mistake about it, there's an all-out war going on out there! 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

Voices from beyond the grave can convict corrupt bankers/contractors who thought they could silence testimony! A Swiss-Venezuelan citizen was tortured and killed in her own apartment in eastern Anzoategui State at the hands of hired killers. Maria Spinas was massacred in her own apartment in Puerto La Cruz.... But the background to the senseless blood-letting is more sinister:

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

Diamond mines at Guaniamo and gold reserves at Las Cristinas will be taken under Venezuelan sovereign state control "As for Las Cristinas, managed by (the Canadian trans-national) Crystallex, the state has not given the proper environmental permits for their operation. We have always questioned, and President Chavez has said that Venezuela should be empowered to do what foreign companies have been done since these are Venezuela's sovereign reserves."

Venezuela'pposition political fog-horns are already blasting through the accumulated smoke after shash & burn pogroms! No truer words were said by Chavez himself than that it is ultimately "up to the Venezuelan people to decide" the toss when they convene in a national referendum on the subject in the middle of next month, for no matter how much the democratic opposition want to stomp their feet in disapproval...

NOT your stereotypical James-Bond type Russian ... Andres Agapov denies being an ex-KGB (SSB) spook! The young man who greeted me in the foyer of the Lainsborough Hotel on Hyde Park Corner in London was NOT your stereotypical James-Bond type Russian ... in fact he gave a favorable impression as "just an ordinary sort of guy" although after a few minutes conversation, it was obvious that he is something more than just a company executive.

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 ... hell, I am only a reporter, NOT a financial adviser and VHeadline's dire financial circumstances is sufficient evidence in itself that a financial manager, I am NOT!

Voracious vultures whose only quest is to "grab the gold and screw the natives!" Ultimately, all parties concerned should have the exploitation of gold on a rising world market uppermost in their minds but, with the gold already in the ground, gaining market value as the weeks/months/years go by, it is the foreign interests that are conceited enough to believe that they can force the Venezuelan government to "stand and deliver" who will eventually be the losers.
