I might get spanked for this from some People but using Forbes and Bloomberg as a sources is like using Fox news and CNN.
Those same People ARE on a payroll by the same People who run TV staions and newspapers.
Always same tactics over an over again. Repeat something stupid and unbelievable hundred times to masses and suddenly it's taken as a truth!
Same applies to every conflict they started. You have to demonize one group of People to get backing of your own before you go in. Simple as night and day.
Chavez is a Patriot first and foremost and as such he will not allow US to steel their natural resources.
What's wrong with that way of thinking?
The problem lies with blood sucking Oil corporations, pharmaceuticals and alike who are electing your presidents and will do anything to demonize innocent and independent states and cause the war JUST for even more green colored paper.
Please wake up People! If everyone around you tells you that you hava a problem with gambling or alcoholism do you think that you might be right or everyone else?
You can't see it yourself. Same applies here. If whole world says your government in power is a Nazi like genocidal maniacs and they them selfs are supporting this view by bombing virtually everyone and every country that posses ounce of Oil or precious stone then don't you think that we might just be right this time?!
If we and our governments say your president is a lier we are branded lairs. But if your president says we are all lairs then he is telling the truth?!
How stupid and shallow that sounds!?
Just because he is yours doesn't make him right. Just open your eyes and listen for your selfs and feel the world. Switch of those Fox and other TV stations and travel and meet those same people that maniac branded as baby eating cannibals.
Personal expirience and word of mouth should be name of the game because nobody trusts TV any more.
