Tale of the two realities of Venezuela

May 31, 2006

A friend pointed out these two contradictory headlines next to each other in today’s page A6 of El Nacional, that show the two realities Venezuelans are living under Chavez, mainly due to his own personal ambitions. On the left, the pro-Chavez Governor of Apure state complains that there are 750 Kms. of his state where there is no protection. Right next to it, our esteemed Minister of Defense Maniglia proudly announces that Venezuela is sending both military personnel and equipment to Bolivia.

As my mother says: Charity begins at home. I guess the corolary is: Not in an autocracy
