As John Robles Sees It… Chávez Wins To the Displeasure of the West


Venezuelan President Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías won the presidential election with a comfortable lead over his rival in a contest that many called a choice between socialism and capitalism. In the South American country, socialism won, to the great displeasure of the West. What the election means for the future of Russian-Venezuelan relations is a continuing and strengthening of close ties and cooperation on all fronts. This cooperation is something that doesn’t please the West and those in Washington’s sphere of influence. This includes social and cultural collaboration, energy production and the development of energy resources, business, manufacturing, agricultural, and scientific development, and, lastly, cooperation in military development and cooperation.

Speaking to ecstatic supporters gathered around the presidential palace on the eve of his clear victory in the national elections, Chávez declared, “Venezuela will continue along the path of democratic and Bolivarian socialism in the 21st century”. In an election that many in the West saw as a referendum pitting the ideals of socialism against those of capitalism, the people of Venezuela made their choice loud and clear, and they’re happy with the Democratic Socialism that Chávez championed.

Shortly after the election results became clear, President Putin spoke with and congratulated the charismatic Chávez, wishing him continued success in the post of president. During the course of the conversation, both leaders gave high marks to the level of mutually-beneficial cooperation reached by both countries and confirmed Russian and Venezuela’s shared aim to strengthen what’ve traditionally been friendly relations. The leaders also spoke about further developing and completing many joint plans and stated their commitment to continuing the constructive dialogue between the governments of both countries at all levels.

On the other side of the spectrum, the reaction from the West was far from warm, with the White House reacting faster than it did when President Putin was re-elected, but not congratulating the re-elected leader himself. The frosty reaction from the White House to the leader who not long ago said he supported American President Obama came in the form of a terse press statement congratulating the Venezuelan people, not Chávez himself. As one of the few countries left in the world which pursues a robust and independent foreign policy agenda and internal policies which are far from those which Washington would characterise as being in keeping with their own self-serving interests, Venezuela has found itself increasingly in Washington’s sights. Recently, it’s even been openly discussed, albeit in hushed tones, that the West may have plans to eliminate Chávez and even launch military aggression against the OPEC member.

In the field of energy alone, Venezuela has been a thorn-in-the-side of the USA for a long time, with Washington displeased over many of the policies and practises of the state oil company PDVSA, including what it sees as “discount” prices offered to Venezuela’s “Socialist Allies”. Venezuela has some of the largest oil reserves in the world and the West is displeased that they aren’t able to get their hands on the pie as much as they would like to. On Monday, analysts at J P Morgan predicted that the win by Chávez would further stifle foreign investment, meaning there will be much less possibility of the West getting their share of Venezuela’s riches. Experts and analysts from all the over the world may also see the win by Chávez as a cementing of his position on the American list for régime change, with many continuing to say that after Syria and Iran, Venezuela would be next.

Karadžić Begins Defence in War Crimes Trial

In case you’ve forgotten, THIS is what Wet Willy’s neocon advisers want in the Balkans… and what Radovan Karadžić fought against…


On Tuesday, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadžić began his defence against allegations of war crimes at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, saying, “I should’ve been rewarded for all the good things that I’ve done, because I did everything within human power to avoid the war and to reduce the human suffering”. He’s been given 300 hours for his defence, an equal amount of time as given to the prosecution.

He stands accused of ten counts of crimes including one charge of genocide, murder, inhumane acts, unlawful attack on civilians, and hostage-taking during the conflicts that erupted in the Balkans in the 1990s. In September, the ICTY rejected his request for a retrial. The trial started on 26 October 2009 and has had repeated delays. Karadžić maintains that he isn’t guilty. In June, one genocide charge against him was dropped due to insufficient evidence. However, the court refused to dismiss a second genocide charge, which relates to the murders of up to 8,000 men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995. Initially indicted in 1995, he spent 13 years in hiding in hiding before being arrested in Belgrade in 2008.

Editor’s Note:

Even though both interventionist Democrats and neoconRepublicans have an unreasoning and demonic hatred of Serbs, the latter are worse. Indeed, they’re so much so that a vote for Romney is a vote for kicking our Serb co-religionists full-force in the face until the blood and gore fly. NO Real Orthodox believer should cooperate in such wickedness… no Real Orthodox believer should be able to do such evil. What does that tell us about the konvertsy and the Far Right ethnics who suck up to them? They ADORE the Far Right lunatics who want to bomb the whole world… not only poor little Serbia. None dare call it diabolical…
