One day Putin will cry “coup d’état in Venezuela!”

How will the crisis in Venezuela end? Some foreign leaders call for “dialog”. Forget it. That will never happen. The de-facto president, Nicolás Maduro, has no power. He is just a puppet for Castro, while the strong-man inside the country supposedly is Diosdado Cabello, although it’s increasingly clear that the only thing he is capable

Crimes against humanity in Venezuela

Since Chávez was elected president of Venezuela in 1998, and installed in 1999, a range of crimes have been perpetrated by the regime. The first was a judicial coup d’état in 1999 when democratically elected president dissolved the Constitution. The second was the gradual handing over of national sovereignty to Cuba, now complete with the

The modern coup d’état: Constituent Assembly

On August 12, 1999, the Constituent Assembly (asamblea nacional constituyente) in Venezuela declared itself above the law, above the constitution, above the parliament, above the president, even above the Supreme Court.

Mel Zelaya calls 70% of Hondurans “coupsters”

So how did it go? In a three way race, she apparently

Viet Nam attacks Google Earth in Cyberwar in the South China Sea

There is a New York Times article today about the Spratly Islands, a group of coral atolls in the South China Sea that are contested by several nations: The Philippines, China, Taiwan, Viet Nam, Brunei, and Malaysia. However, when looking at the area in Google Earth today, I discovered something else: blatant examples of manipulated

The fake “resistance” in Venezuela

In many dictatorships a non-violent resistance has emerged and helped liberate the country. Not so in Venezuela. Why? My investigations have revealed the existence of a “fake” resistance. There is a group that calls itself “resistance”, but which is utterly ineffective due to its impopular positions. So I have been told when talking to people

Colombia in the crosshairs of Cuba

The agreement between FARC and the Colombian government, negotiated with the participation of Cuba, Venezuela and Norway, is hailed by some as a step towards peace. Not so by members of the Colombian military, however. They see this as a huge step towards Colombia becoming a satellite in the Axis of Evil, to which Cuba
