    Careful now - your dealing with the Euro-lefty view of world history. Which essentially can be summed up as follows: Everything bad that happens in the world is American's fault - and if it isn't, it's Israel's fault. It makes life so simple for them.

    You think Maduro is kicking the US out because of bad hygiene habits. Ok, sure.

    It never ceases to amaze me what lengths people will go to excuse US government wrong doing, and then complain that people hate America.

    The failed coup in Venezuela was closely tied to senior officials in the US government, The Observer has established. They have long histories in the 'dirty wars' of the 1980s, and links to death squads working in Central America at that time.
    Washington's involvement in the turbulent events that briefly removed left-wing leader Hugo Chavez from power last weekend resurrects fears about US ambitions in the hemisphere.
