Other oath of office: ongoing Orinoco one-step...


Sleeping on straw and eating hay is no way to treat a sick man, even a clown...OK, maybe not; however the game and betting continues between Nick Ripe and God-given Hair [Eng] [Esp] (by Roger Noriega in Foreign Policy): "It will surprise no one if the Chavista factions set aside their differences to sustain their hold on power. However, as long as U.S. diplomats do not give away the store, it will be a tenuous hold by a criminal regime. Once Chávez’s legacy — a narcoterrorist state allied with terrorists — is exposed, decent Venezuelans may have a chance to recover and rebuild their country."

Update: If your not entirely sure what is currently going on in Venezuela read an excellent 'taking stock' of the situation from Caracas Chronicles.

Of course it could be true that he is dead.

Hi Paul, he hasn't been seen for nearly a month. Yes indeed and because of where he is nobody will know until they decide to let us know. Worse case is that Venezuela is being steered by the Castro brothers whim. I have just added an update to the post, well worth a read.
