Chavez is in a tough position. For one thing, he's doing all the stuff for his country that America doesn't like. Like keeping oil profits local
and building infrastructure, education, etc. He is giving away hundreds of thousands of acres to farmers so they can plant and sow crops
independently. He realizes an independent population is a source of strength and revenue. And let's not forget the very important fact that he is
preaching against any latin-american country going back to the IMF for loans.
He realizes that the system of interest-bearing loans given to third world countries is designed to get the country into perpetual debt, and he
refuses to be a part of that system.
Lastly, he's got some oil under his feet. Greedy eyes gaze keenly on that soil.
Now, Chavez is not a saint. But boy does he have the right idea when it comes to David standing up against Goliath. He knows what he's up against,
and knows that the US's foreign policy is geared to economically rape other nations. The trick for him will be protecting the country from the
looters without pissing off Goliath too much.
