Mel Zelaya calls 70% of Hondurans “coupsters”

Sunday’s presidential election was more than a regular presidential election in Honduras. Since deposed president Manuel “Mel” Zelaya’s wife, Xiomara Castro de Zelaya, was running for election, it was for all intents and purposes a referendum on his deposing on June 28th, 2009. 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.

Cuba has taken complete control over the South American oil-rich nation and there is

The Cold War never ended. The collapse of communism in Europe was widely seen as the end of the Cold War between the USSR and the USA. However, Cuba did not surrender. Castro stayed in there, found a new ally in China, shifted strategy, and together they quietly started conquering Latin America. With the death

The sickening plan for Chávez’s corpse

A facebook page belonging to the Venezuelan resistance, Operación Libertad Venezuela, is denouncing a sickening Cuban plan for Chávez body. First of all we have to realize that Chávez is dead since a long time, and that his body was flown back to Venezuela last Sunday. It was kept in the presidential estate in Barinas,

“Cubans go home!”

On Valentines Day a group of Venezuelan students chained themselves over the street outside the Embassy of Cuba en Caracas, Venezuela, demanding that Cuba leaves Venezuela. Since January 10, when no new president was sworn in, Venezuela has lacked a head of state. Instead the civilian and military leadership have flown to Havana, Cuba, for
