Provocations are possible. Violence surges. "Basic food items disappear." Corporate media are closed "and/or prominent journalists are detained." Duddy called them "independent" ones "critical of the government."

Perhaps internal "Chavismo" divisions will erupt. Maybe a "senior political" official or Capriles figure is assassinated.

What if gasoline supplies are interrupted? Riots might follow.

Expect none of the above unless instigated by outside agitators and/or internal ones enlisted to serve Washington and oligarch interests.

Duddy claims political instability and violence "would damage US efforts to promote democracy, increase regional cooperation, combat narcotics, and protect its economic interests in the region."

Washington wants unchallenged control. It spurns democracy. It doesn't cooperate. It demands acquiescence. It facilitates drugs trafficking. The CIA has been involved for decades. Major US banks launder billions of dollars regularly.

Chavez's governing style is "authoritarian," claims Duddy. He's "undermining important political institutions, giving more powers to the presidency, and weakening both civil society and the independent media."

Venezuela is a model social democracy. Washington wants it destroyed. It wants neoliberal harshness replacing it. It wants Venezuelans deprived like most Americans.
