Hugo Chavez Reportedly in Critical Condition-Unconfimred Reports of his death


www.foxnews.com

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is reportedly in critical condition after undergoing surgery in Havana, Cuba, unnamed U.S. intelligence sources told the El Nuevo Herald.

Chavez is “in critical condition, not grave, but critical, complicated,” the source told the newspaper; the Spanish-language, sister publication of the Miami Herald.

Officials say Chavez underwent surgery June 10 for a pelvic abscess, which is an accumulation of pus that can have various causes, including infection or surgical complications. Neither Chavez nor doctors treating him have disclosed what caused the absc

Could we be so lucky? I think we'll find this is nothing more then rumor, but thought I would get everyone's hopes up.

Another article states that his allies are confirming he is alright.

Chavez not dead or dying, say allies (see link below)

Rumours of the impending demise of Hugo Chavez have been greatly exaggerated, his allies said yesterday, insisting that he will be back at work imminently and telling opponents that they should "stop dreaming" of his death.


The Veneuzelan President, who is famed for his regular TV appearances and enthusiatic speech-making, has not been seen or heard from in public since he travelled to a hospital Cuba for a June 10th operation to remove what official sources described as a “pelvic swelling.”


His unaccustomed silence has prompted rumours that the 56-year-old left-winger, who faces a grueling re-election battle next year, may have fallen seriously ill, possibly with prostate cancer. At the weekend, the Nuevo Herald, a Spanish-language sister publication to the Miami Herald read largely by Cuban ex-pats said he was in a “critical condition.” The Argentinian offshoot of Wikileaks meanwhile claimed on Twitter to have intelligence that he’d died from a heart attack.

Actually they posted a photo of Castro visiting Chavez shortly after his surgery I believe.. I suspect that he's not recovering as quickly as they think, either that or he's gotten an infection or some other complication.. I doubt he's passed on yet but if he has we'll know eventually.. It's been a long time for him to be still in recovery.

I think this is it. In that he's probably still recovering and no one has really seen him so they consider him dead. Simular to Castro after his surgery. Granted, he lost his ability to dictate so there was some, but very little, valitity to the theories around Castro.

We'll see but thought I'd post this in breaking news.

I saw a video on the news with him talking to Castro dated June 28. He looked very healthy. Definitely not at death's door.

Thanks, I see that is actually footage of Castro and Chavez, so I guess they are not death yet, unless they are using doubles.

hes been dead a week depending on what sources you check.

it seemss he left home for a bit of surgery. the planet overlords heard about this decided to stir the opposition up and spread a rumour he was dead. seems to be just a crock.

you think some people would learn from the wikileaks fiasco.

anyway its not really breaking as it was up at the end of last week:

No offense AT ALL intended to the OP, but I just have to say this, because it's (at least) funny:

A user called "Bearack"...
... with the american flag and a gazing eagle as avatar...
... posting a story from FOX...
... about Hugo Chavez "death"...
... saying americans would be "lucky" should Chavez die, and that everyone should hope for his death...


Is it possible to create a better stereotypical impression of an "American Radical" here on ATS?
(hey... if there are "Muslim Radicals" I guess there also are "American" ones)



On topic:
Don't worry everyone, if Chavez dies, the People of Venezuela will probably just freely elect another "crazy socialist", just like they did with Chavez. Twice.



Peace

Sounds to me like it is just an appendicitis operation ? Nothing to worry about then ? They will simply perform the minor surgery to amputate the swollen appendix thus preventing the poison from getting into his blood, a condition known a septicaemia, or peritonitis, which if untreated is fatal. If they are reporting that his condition is critical then I interpret that his appendix might have already burst. So that he would thus die if not treated in hospital.

Låter för mig som det bara är en blindtarm operation? Inget att oroa sig då? De kommer helt enkelt att utföra mindre kirurgiska ingrepp för att amputera svullna appendix därmed förhindra giftet från att komma in i hans blod, ett tillstånd som kallas en blodförgiftning, eller peritonit, som om det inte behandlas är dödlig. Om de rapporterar att hans tillstånd är kritiskt då tolkar jag att hans appendix kanske redan har brustit. Så att han skulle alltså dö om de inte behandlas på sjukhus.

And you believe everything you see on the MSM?

Look at the picture of Hugo and Castro. There are several of them. While supposedly taken on different days, they are both wearing the same clothes.

One in particular shows the two looking at a newspaper. I would suggest that the mis-direction is that they expect us to look at the newspaper which would suggest a date mark, yet, it would be VERY easy to produce a copy of a paper that has not yet been printed and, at some point, print the paper as if it were the daily news marker for that date to make you believe that He and Castro are fine and well on June 28th, when the picture was actually taken on June 2nd or so, for example.

Its all mis-direction.

Funny. Its almost like the Bin Laden voice recordings. We are being told that for the past 9 years, all of the recordings were current, yet, if you believe like I do that Bin Laden was killed in Tora Bora in what, 2003, that he wouldnt produce a single video of himself during the years to follow? Just Audio? A man with his resources and following wouldnt verify his existence?

Sorry, I am not buying it.

Hugo went to Cuba for medical treatment, because, he couldnt find the treatment in his own country. So he goes to a Cuba instead? Do you know they operate on goats in Cuban hospitals?

I love how people knock the American medical system. I have been in third world hospitals, folks, and I can tell you that my ass is firmly planted here in the USA for all of my medical treatments. Yes, drug companies are in legion with the government and the elite, but when it comes to your healthcare, I dont give a flying pigs ass just as long as I get to live another day.

Hugo is either dead or dying. Thank god for that!

Mhm, how many countries has Hugo Chavez invaded? Or how many people has he killed?

He may not understand economics well, but he isn't that bad.

If Cuba has third world hospitals, then so does Canada. We obviously have better medical facilities than the US, which happen to be available to ALL of our citizens, and Cuba is the same.

So put that in your pipe and smoke it


And all of these MSM crap about Chavez is pure propaganda. Oh yeah, an "unnamed US intellegence agent informed our Cuba affiliates..." Right. Let's just cut the foreplay and say that a US intelligence official in the Pentagon told Fox News to spread unsubstantiated misinformation


And why in the name of love itself are people saying they are glad Chavez is dying? He's a true nationalist, a hero of South America itself. I bet those people who want him dead know nothing about the CIA coup that ousted him for three days, until they released him after millions of Venezuelans rallied in his name. I wonder if they, the people who live in Venezuela, think he is an evil dictator that should die too (just like anyone who watches Fox News)

Sorry guys but it is really annoying how people in ATS really has an opinion ABOUT EVERYTHING without really living the situation or anything close to it.

I AM VENEZUELAN with the majority of my family there. Many are anti-government, very few are with the government (exactly 2 of a very large family exceeding 100)

Chavez is really ill. It has been confirmed that he has a form of cancer. He was in Cuba for a while because there it was detected that he had an "abscess" in his pelvis. A Cuban doctor operating him and made things worse for him causing some infection in the intestine. Then a SPANISH doctor, 2 VENEZUELANS (one residing in USA) and one FRENCH (I quote this because this is the biggest irony ever after he is so against this countries) operated him and confirmed that he has cancer! Now, it is not clear where exactly is the cancer. Some say is Colon, some say is Prostate.
he is also using a can to support himself. Apparently he has a pain the knee. Now, people say by experience (this is all speculation again as WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH CHAVEZ) that he has Metastasis and he was in serious doses of morphine when he was talking.

If there is a doctor here that can explain to me a bit about this would be veyr helpful as in Venezuela is all about speculation.

Unfortunately, everyone is happy. I do not like this as it is really low, in-humane to be happy about someone else's illness. I believe that his own hate has made him ill. I do believe he is seriously ill.

I hope he gets better and I hope we can get him out democratically because I think that this is going to cause some serious rebellion and we had had enough rebellion in this country.

For those that support Chavez, get a ticket and live in Venezuela but don't live in Prados Del Este, Baruta, La Trinidad, Chacaito, Chacao, Altamira, etc etc etc... very nice urbanizations and neighborhoods of Caracas where the rich and the CHAVISTAS live atm. NO, you should go to 23 DE ENERO, PETARE, ETC where the real people who suffer live, where they cannot even walk because they are afraid they can get raped or killed. KILLING IN VENEZUELA IS A HOBBY PEOPLE because the people who kill just to get your really nice ADIDAS is an animal! In Venezuela we have an average of 40 KILLINGS BY GUNSHOT EVERY DAY.
Sorry but you talking nicely about the government of Chavez and are very comfortable living in really nice USA, where you can get good health (even if you have to pay but so do we!), you can walk at 2.00am and nothing will happen to you (in most places in US), where you cn get your food, medicine with no problem I tell you to STOP BRING SO IGNORANT AND OPEN YOUR EYES.
THE GRASS IS NOT EVEN GROWING ON THIS SIDE so stop talking... just get on a plane and I show you how our indigena people live, how re inflation is off the roof, how we cannot even live in peace! One of my best friends have been kidnapped 4 TIMES because he has made a good living but from ZERO because his parents didnt even go to high school but WORK LIKE A MULE! my sister was almost kidnapped and raped because she had nice shoes!! and we are to even high class but normal middle class people, employees of this government.

so again


get on a plane


and live for real over there! In the Amazon, in the poor neighborhood of Caracas and be prepare to know how MANY PEOPLE HATE CHAVEZ AND THIS GOVERNMENT!!!!


what is the corrupted banana republic of Venezuela

We make so much money per day EVEN MORE THAN THE US only on Petrol just to let you know and look how we are???? is that fair???


again, ignorance is bliss

Thank you ATS for Grammar correction and please excuse my English and my anger reflected on this post but I believe in justified.

this is a video that was done for PROHIBIDO OLVIDAR "prohibited to forget" when 11 April we almost kicked the president out. You see in the video how many people were in that demostration in CAracas. People came from all over the country, the video has 5 parts and later on in the parts, it is shown how chavez was going to do a "cadena" talk on national television an d take over all the channels.
Later on it is shown that the television channels split the tv transmission to show what was Chavez saying and what was happening during the demonstration. BECAUSE THE CHAVISTAS WERE KILLING THE PEOPLE IN THE DEMONSTRATION! THERE WERE AROUND 30 KILLINGS BY COLD BLOOD!!
now, the ironic part of the banana republic, winning the title "only in Venezuela" the people that were killing, some of them now, are MINISTERS!! Hows that?
