Just found this report and think its just breaking as I have not been able to find any full report on this topic other then what has been posted in the news snippet .

I can't help but wonder just what he said and just who would follow Chavez ? My guess would be a mix of Venezuelan army and the CIA .

I am interested to see how this story develops .

A bit more that I was able to find ...


Hugo Chavez to take his fight to Twitter?
The Venezuelan leader decides he must "wage the battle online" by becoming a microblogger. Will he "break records for numbers of followers," as predicted?

Lol, im Venezuelan and im fu.... sure that a lot of the followers are people in the oposition, we have our reasons to follow him, maybe he will tweet his war declaration on us before saying that on tv so we will have time to run


And the tweet's translation for the interested is something like

"hey, what's up, i appear as i said, at midnight, to Brasil i go and very happy to work for Venezuela, we will win."

Thats not surprising, he is always traveling and better if is to other countries, he didnt came today to my city as was scheduled because there were a lot of people protesting at him.

Chavez has massive support.

Let us not forget:

18 Gains of the Venezuelan Revolution

  1. Written a new constitution. Fifty percent of it was written directly by the population. It was put to a referendum and it won the support of 70% of voters. This constitution extended the democratic, social and human rights of the population far beyond the boundaries of a simple parliamentary democracy. The constitution calls for participatory democratic bodies of people to organise and implement new initiatives, such as the ones mentioned here.
  2. Eradicated illiteracy according to United Nations standards.
  3. Lowered the infant mortality rate.
  4. Created 3000 new Bolivarian schools.
  5. Brought in more than 1.5 million people into the education system free of charge.
  6. Established a free university system aimed at the poor majority traditionally excluded from tertiary education (the poor receive free textbooks, free transport to university, free meals at university). Students and staff also work together democratically to create the curriculum.
  7. Built more houses for the poor in two years than in the previous 20 years under the old governments.
  8. Created access to fresh, clean and safe water for millions of people for the first time in their lives.
  9. Re-distributed millions of hectares of unused, idle yet arable (agriculturally usable) land to landless poor people.
  10. Renamed Columbus Day (Christopher Columbus the ‘explorer’) Invasion Day and are rebuilding the nations’ knowledge of real indigenous history and indigenous resistance.
  11. Opened popular food markets which buy food from food cooperatives, it then gets sold in the popular food markets at 30% below the price of food in the big supermarket chain stores.
  12. Opened 1000 free kitchens have been opened to provide free meals for people without homes.
  13. Constructed a massive free healthcare system which now provides free healthcare for the first time in history to poor workers and unemployed people.
  14. Struggled for and won back control of the gigantic oil industry (off corrupt executives and top management) which is now managed jointly by the government and the oil workers.
  15. Increased taxes on corporations, and forced them to actually pay their taxes (McDonalds and Coca Cola were shutdown for three days as punishment for avoiding payment of their full tax bill).
  16. Increased the minimum wage by 30% in 2004 (this was not the first increase since 1998). Government revenue from corporate taxes and oil sales have been used for many social programs and minimum wage increases.
  17. Banned employers sacking workers (which was declared by the government in early 2003). This has been extended and continues, allowing the rapid growth of a strongly rank-and-file-active democratic trade union movement that is washing away the pro-boss unions.
  18. Recognition of domestic work, extending permanent social security payments to people who do domestic labour (mainly women), none of this payment is taken away if their companion is in work.

Thanks for the translation


And I kinda suspected that his " opposition " would follow his tweets just as much , if not more , than those who were " advised " to follow him .

But hey , I am sure that there is also a very large percent of those numbers that truly want to tweet this man

Doesn't the CIA go around Venezuela riling people up and trying to incite political unrest against Chavez?

Ah, sorry, that's a stupid question. That's what they do to Latin and South American countries that deviate from US policy. I guess I should ask instead, are you doing anything to kick their asses out?

That sounds like something straight out of Chavez's propaganda machine..."no, no people love me for oppressing them, it's that damn CIA"

Lol, funny, how many times had you visit Venezuela?

I think the must funny part is about the healthcare, constitucion, land to landless people, trade union.

Let me tell you one think, we we ask for a referendum about his goverment, we had to make a petition, millions of Venezuelan sign the petition, myself included, when i finished my studies and started to search for a job, i introduce my papers in the public administration, and because i signed against Chavez, i was denied the opportunity to work for the administration.

I found a job in a private industry, Chavez took control of the industry, first they make us go to his party activities, wear red, and after that i was fired because i was not with the revolution.

So, yes, beautiful constitution, but where the hell where my rights? nowhere!

I am the only one?

Im just one between a lot of people who had lost work, bussiness, property and their lifes because that man thinks he is doing a good thing.

He had open hospital? schools? yes, he had, visit one and them tell me why the f.... hospital doesnt have needles, or why the roof of the schools are failing!

Have he redistributed land? yes, he have, so before we export meet, coffee, grains, now we must import them!

Lol, oil industries? thats funny, Bush is his partner in one.

Increased the minimum wage? yes, he did that, but the inflation grows more so the increase is futile.

How easy is to be a communist or socialist but not live in a country that try to do that.

Well given the factual history of CIA involved in Latin and South American countries, overthrowing duly-elected leaders and all that, I can't blame him.

It is seriously what our country does down there.

If you think they don't, you are in denial.

Why don't you start your own business, rather than work for somebody else? You can still do that, can't you?

This is not a paradise, the economic situation is bad and going worse, the big industries in my city are all almost paralized, is not very easy to start a new bussiness right now, and in my city is very hard because all the economy depends of the big industries, and with them broken the city is like a slow zombie trying to walk to the next corner.

My father bussiness closed some years ago, my uncle is going in the same way.

The only thing that still have movement is the oil, but the oil bussiness is for the goverment and their partners in the mixed industries, and the partner in them is not the people, is big corporations like Chevron, Texaco, Exxon, Total, Statoil, etc etc.

So you don't have any comment on CIA involvement in these countries? Figures.

I'm taking up for his country, and all other such countries, that are victims of CIA operations. If you want to believe going around and enforcing our policies on other countries, to the point of assassinating their leaders, torturing and killing millions of their people, and sabotaging their economies, is the appropriate way of handling foreign policy, then I'd say you would fit right in with the likes of Hitler and Stalin.



Ecuador — The CIA-backed military forces the democratically elected President Jose Velasco to resign. Vice President Carlos Arosemana replaces him; the CIA fills the now vacant vice presidency with its own man.

Congo (Zaire) — The CIA assassinates the democratically elected Patrice Lumumba. However, public support for Lumumba’s politics runs so high that the CIA cannot clearly install his opponents in power. Four years of political turmoil follow.

1963

Dominican Republic — The CIA overthrows the democratically elected Juan Bosch in a military coup. The CIA installs a repressive, right-wing junta.

Ecuador — A CIA-backed military coup overthrows President Arosemana, whose independent (not socialist) policies have become unacceptable to Washington. A military junta assumes command, cancels the 1964 elections, and begins abusing human rights.

1964

Brazil — A CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically elected government of Joao Goulart. The junta that replaces it will, in the next two decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history. General Castelo Branco will create Latin America’s first death squads, or bands of secret police who hunt down "communists" for torture, interrogation and murder. Often these "communists" are no more than Branco’s political opponents. Later it is revealed that the CIA trains the death squads.

1965

Indonesia — The CIA overthrows the democratically elected Sukarno with a military coup. The CIA has been trying to eliminate Sukarno since 1957, using everything from attempted assassination to sexual intrigue, for nothing more than his declaring neutrality in the Cold War. His successor, General Suharto, will massacre between 500,000 to 1 million civilians accused of being "communist." The CIA supplies the names of countless suspects.

Dominican Republic — A popular rebellion breaks out, promising to reinstall Juan Bosch as the country’s elected leader. The revolution is crushed when U.S. Marines land to uphold the military regime by force. The CIA directs everything behind the scenes.

Greece — With the CIA’s backing, the king removes George Papandreous as prime minister. Papandreous has failed to vigorously support U.S. interests in Greece.

Congo (Zaire) — A CIA-backed military coup installs Mobutu Sese Seko as dictator. The hated and repressive Mobutu exploits his desperately poor country for billions. ...

Uruguay — The notorious CIA torturer Dan Mitrione arrives in Uruguay, a country torn with political strife. Whereas right-wing forces previously used torture only as a last resort, Mitrione convinces them to use it as a routine, widespread practice. "The precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect," is his motto. The torture techniques he teaches to the death squads rival the Nazis’. He eventually becomes so feared that revolutionaries will kidnap and murder him a year later. ...

Chile — The CIA overthrows and assassinates Salvador Allende, Latin America’s first democratically elected socialist leader. The problems begin when Allende nationalizes American-owned firms in Chile. ITT offers the CIA $1 million for a coup (reportedly refused). The CIA replaces Allende with General Augusto Pinochet, who will torture and murder thousands of his own countrymen in a crackdown on labor leaders and the political left.

El Salvador — An idealistic group of young military officers, repulsed by the massacre of the poor, overthrows the right-wing government. However, the U.S. compels the inexperienced officers to include many of the old guard in key positions in their new government. Soon, things are back to "normal" — the military government is repressing and killing poor civilian protesters. Many of the young military and civilian reformers, finding themselves powerless, resign in disgust. ...

El Salvador — The Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero, pleads with President Carter "Christian to Christian" to stop aiding the military government slaughtering his people. Carter refuses. Shortly afterwards, right-wing leader Roberto D’Aubuisson has Romero shot through the heart while saying Mass. The country soon dissolves into civil war, with the peasants in the hills fighting against the military government. The CIA and U.S. Armed Forces supply the government with overwhelming military and intelligence superiority. CIA-trained death squads roam the countryside, committing atrocities like that of El Mazote in 1982, where they massacre between 700 and 1000 men, women and children. By 1992, some 63,000 Salvadorans will be killed. ...

Honduras — The CIA gives Honduran military officers the Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual – 1983, which teaches how to torture people. Honduras’ notorious "Battalion 316" then uses these techniques, with the CIA’s full knowledge, on thousands of leftist dissidents. At least 184 are murdered. ...

Panama — The U.S. invades Panama to overthrow a dictator of its own making, General Manuel Noriega. Noriega has been on the CIA’s payroll since 1966, and has been transporting drugs with the CIA’s knowledge since 1972. By the late 80s, Noriega’s growing independence and intransigence have angered Washington… so out he goes.

You who defend these actions, or look the other way to point your finger at who you are told to, disgust me.


If Chavez was screwed up enough to do those same things, we would have outright invaded Venezuela years ago. Yet you turn a blind eye to what the CIA does. You disgust me.

Let Venezuela mind their own business. Get the CIA out of all of this crap, including all the media reporting demonizing Chavez and his country just because of his INSANE policy towards foreign countries. You people hear about this stuff, probably the first generation to ever really hear about it on such a scale, and you don't even give a damn. You're a bunch of Nazis. This is Nazi Germany.

Well, you could always emigrate to America/Britain/Canada, if you want a taste of our system.. Admittedly, it would probably be a huge improvement to your current situation, and we're always looking for new workers who are responsible with their money and work hard.


There's not a lot you can do about the situation with Chavez.. If he's going to oppress you, then that is one battle you're going to lose. Find a way out, imo.
