And I can’t help but translate last
Friday’s hilariously depressing article by Laureano Marquez in Tal Cual and combine it with today’s Weil cartoon:
We still have time by Laureano Marquez in Tal Cual
That position in the Security Council is of interest
to all of us, pro-Government or opposition. One of the things that may
contribute in Venezuela
changing, is that nobody has any doubts about where we stand and what we are. For that, an important
position at the UN is vital. There is a lot that can be done there for the
cause. That is why I see no reason for dismay and crybabies, given that we
have electoral methods and strategies which have been sufficiently proven
has time to win if it is capable, in the four days left before the vote is
resumed, to put in practice the same procedures that have worked so well at
home. Time is running out and what needs to be done is there to be seen:
—Install Smartmatic voting machines for the next round of the vote
—Place fingerprint capturing machines at the entrance to where the vote
is taking place and promote lines of 12 or more hours so that the ambassadors
get bored to death and leave the shit like that and don’t vote
—Place the Bolivarian circles of New
York at the gates of the UN so that they insult and
throw rocks at any ambassador that is suspected of voting against us. Little by
little their morals will be undermined up to the point that they will resign.
—Simultaneously, threaten the people at CNN so they do not make transmissions.
Sabotage their communications and kidnap their microwave transmitters.
— At this point (second day of the suspension), Tascon would be
installed with his laptop in the Great Apple, with his list perfectly
elaborated with all of the officials that should be fired and their history of
voting in similar previous events.
—On the diplomatic front, Guatemala and their candidate have
to be disqualified and accused of bribing other countries, of buying votes and
of blocking the vote. That is, of what we ourselves are doing.
—At the same time, start a plan to distribute money and bring a
briefcase full of cash, before each round of voting.
—If done right, even the US will end up voting for us. Money
kills anything as is clearly demonstrated by local politics.
—When the moment to count the votes arrives, the entrance to the tantalization
room should be restricted and the manual counting of the ballots should be
—The results will be made known around four in the morning, when Carter
can barely stay awake
If this simple advice is followed, in four days the destiny of the world
will be in our hands and then they will know what we are capable of…
