This next account - Venezuela: Not a Banana-Oil Republic after All, was published from one of those anti NWO sites. But we all know, you can't trust the rants of the Left,
so how about this summary from the respected STRATFOR - Venezuela: Rumored U.S. Involvement Could Hurt Bush Administration.
intelligence sources in Venezuela and Washington told STRATFOR April 14 that the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S.
State Department may have been involved separately in the events that took place in Caracas between April 5 and April 13.
If the information is correct, the reinstatement of President Hugo Chavez less than 48 hours after he was toppled by a civilian-military
coup could have disastrous implications for the Bush administration's policy in Latin America.”
Not to be outdone the Washington Post, sets the record straight - Chavez Reclaims Power in Venezuela
By now your eyes
are glazing over. You are asking yourself, what does all this mean? Well after considering all the above this Narco News White
Paper - Three Days that Shook the Media, put it all into perspective.
Let's look at the big picture. Americans often
ignore what goes on south of the border. But we are at the brink of passing the Free Trade Zone of the Americas. Do we really
want a Western Hemisphere version of the European Union? H.R. 3005 will move us one more step closer to rule under the WTO.
The United States will be subject to international sanctions, as a way of life.
turmoil many not seem important to most Americans. But it illustrates how the real world operates. It also speaks volumes
of the bias and agenda in reporting that most people rely upon to explain world events. Was the Chavez coup a failed attempt
to install an approved IMF corporate government? Consider this answer by Greg Palast, a journalist for BBC and the Observer
- aired on the Alex Jones Radio Show, March 4, 2002. Yes, over a month before the Coup d'etat attempt . . .
conversation with President Chavez, attributed by Mr Palast:
"What they said was here
you've got an elected president of the government and the IMF has announced, listen to this, that they would support a transition
government if the president were removed. They are not saying that they are going to get involved in politics - they would
just support a transition government. What that effectively is saying we will pay for the coup d'etat, if the military overthrows
the current president, because the current president of Venezuela has said no to the IMF. He told those guys to go packing.
They brought their teams in and said you have to do this and that. And he said, I don't have to do nothing. He said what I'm
going to do is, I'm going to double the taxes on oil corporations because we have a whole lot of oil in Venezuela. And
I'm going to double the taxes on oil corporations and then I will have all the money I need for social programs
and the government - and we will be a very rich nation. Well, as soon as they did that, they started fomenting trouble with
the military and I'm telling you watch this space: the President of Venezuela will be out of office in three months or shot
dead. They are not going to allow him to raise taxes on the oil companies."
for world leaders is you don't cross the masters of power. But for Americans it is that a world run by the IMF never benefits
us, the people. The enactment of the FTAA is just one more element in the grand scheme of global rule. There is no need to
dapple in extraordinary theories, it is all in the open for everyone to see. The policy is clear - the nations of the world
are mere colonies to the interests of the ruling elites. Citizens of countries and their elected leaders are mere subjects of
the international community. Not exactly the revered Republic that we all owe allegiance, is it?
