This is an excellent find OP!
Hugo chavez is still in power, and his form of Bolivarian government is increasingly popular in the face of increasing US militancy, along with the
continuing rise of fascism around the world. There is a regional standoff developing in South America.
Brazil, Venezuela and Ecuador (to a lesser extent) have essentially aligned themselves in an anti-banker, anti-western stance. Colombia, in which the
government clings to power through military might aided by the US, has become a stooge for the bankers and the western alliance. Along with Panama,
Mexico, and (after this thinly veiled coup) Costa Rica.
The chess pieces are still moving - Venezuela is a continued, eminent, and persistent threat to US economic-military hegemony.
The invasion / blockade can't be far off.

Your post only shows either utter ignorance or a desire to spread lies.
First of all Chavez is at his lowest popularity ever, Venezuela is living one of its most difficult crisis thanks to the bolivarian economy, food
shortage, electricity cuts, high crime rates, etc, name a disgrace and you will find it in the bolivarian regime.
Lula in Brazil is on his way out, he did a wonderful job, but may I remind you he always mantained close ties with the U.S., he will be replaced with
a right wing regime.
Ecuador is close to Chavez, a member of the ALBA, but still mantains close ties with the U.S. and Correa learnt from experience what can happen if you
get too close with the bolivarian terrorists.
Alvaro Uribe is by far the best president Colombia has ever had, he had records of popularity not only in his first term, but in his second, in fact,
if he was allowed to run again for the presidency he would have won by a landslide. He couldn¡t because Colombia is a democracy, unlike Venezuela,
and the Supreme Court forbade him to do it.
His succesor is his former minister of defense, Juan Santos, and he won by a record in votes, more than nine million, in a country that has never
seen such a high participation in the political process, and do you by chance now what he did to get such a victory?. He fought Chavez' allies, the
FARC, his bolivarian guerilla army, even did so in Ecuador, that is the reason why Correa has distancenced himself from Chavez.
Even more, Santos will be sworn into office in a few days, and Chavez, Correa and Evo will be attending.
It is easy to spread lies from afar, but come to Southamerica and see for yourself.
The Kirchners in Argentina will also be replaced by the right, and the right won in Chile, South America will be left by this time next year with only
Bolivia, Uruguay and Ecuador representing the left.
