Venezuela Says U.S. Uses Anti-Drug List As 'Weapon of Domination'

(venezuelanalysis.com)-- Venezuelan government officials rejected the U.S. government's renewed placement of Venezuela on a list of principal countries where illegal drugs are transported or produced, calling it a political maneuver meant to weaken the Venezuelan and Bolivian governments at a time when both are confronting potential coup d'├ętats waged by domestic opposition groups.

A press release from the White House on Tuesday named 20 countries which "failed demonstrably" over the past year to comply with international drug control agreements.

Heh, I think we know what this is REALLY about: Chavez' war of words and non-conformity to bow down to this administrations whims...And his encouragement of other nations to do the same.

First Venezuela was put on the "terror watch-list", and now it's the "Anti-drug list"....

I wonder if Venezuela can impose their own anti-drug list, since the CIA is the biggest importer / trafficker of opiate on the planet. lol


The director of the Venezuelan National Anti-Drug Office (ONA), Nestor Reverol, said the list violates the United Nations Charter of Economic Rights and Duties of States, which was passed by the U.N. General Assemly in 1974.

Article 32 of the Charter establishes that states do not have the right to employ economic measures which coerce another state to subordinate its sovereign rights, Reverol pointed out.

The Venezuelan Minister of the Interior and Justice, Tarek El-Aissami, who recently replaced former Minister Ramon Rodriguez Chacin, called the list a "weapon of domination."
