[QUOTE=pure_mercury;1016657]So 1 protestor was killed by the police 3 years ago and this makes Chávez an unparralelled evil murderer?Epoch Times reported this killing of a peaceful student protestor.
Epoch Times | Security Forces Kill Student in Venezuela, Eyewitnesses Report
Actually you could have mentioned the killing of 2 workers at the Sanitarios Maracay factory which they were occupying, i.e. they were killed by Chavez's police in order to defend private property, but the kind of news you read doesn't care about workers getting killed, and just loves private property. But then some right-wing, rich, white student gets killed, and they scream bloody murder.
Cry me a river.
And Colombia has agreed to build 7 US bases on its soil! This in a region where the US has presided over countless military coups,Plan Condor, and of course the attempted coup against Chavez in 2002.And, of course, Venezuela killed several Colombians they CLAIMED were paramilitaries, with no real evidence to that effect.
Uribe and the US are the biggest danger to Latin America.
How is pointing out your hypocrisy the same as "red herringism"?And your harping on the American government (of which I am not a part) is STILL red herring-ism at its worst. You have NO point whatsoever.
