    Umm.... That's not entirely true. My neighbor for instance in Venezuelan and he studied in both the U.S. and Venezuela. Venezuelans are not stupid, but Chavez owns the media and pretty much everything else.

    What's wrong with learning things? I mean capitalism isn't perfect but it's better than a lot of alternatives?

    Georgia was on Russia's doorstep and they didn't hide it behind ideological factors very forcefully. If China and Russia started invading people like you silly liberal suggestion then there really would be chaos.

    Which is why the corporatists are happy that our education system is failing. Sheeple do as their told, now go buy something or the terrorists win.

    Ummm, again. It's called Communism, it's stated aims are to overthrow all existing social conditions. (China) and Russia? Are you kidding, they are the biggest new Capitalists on the scene. They almost openly trying to intervene in the affairs of the CIS.

    Um, no he doesn't. There is a state controlled media, but there are also many other privately-controlled media companies. There are even companies that called for his overthrow still operating within the country.

    Yes those privately owned media companies are flourishing under Chavez aren't they?

    Didn't you vote for Bush TWICE even knowing that his first term was a disaster? Did the Venezuelans hate Bush in order to wish his assassination like some dudes do in this thread with Chavez?

    As far as I know, Chavez is not an enemy of US and that is enough for me to read the news and wait and see. Maybe president Bush is unhappy because Chavez used to call him "el diablo" (the devil).
    What a pile of babbling bile. "Chavez is not an enemy of US" You are correct, but the debate is that he is an enemy of freedom and Democracy; thank you for avoiding those FACTS.

    But as we have seen so many times in Latin America and other regions of the world, Socialist Dictators are GOOD for their nations. Cuba is a shining example of that.

    Yes, the Liberals think the US should keep to itself and joyfully embrace ignorance and despotism; hell, we are almost there ourselves these days!

    You have it exactly opposite; Liberals promote ignorance as it is the only way to spread their ideology; hell, they even celebrate it! The business world cannot exist without an educated workforce and one that comprehends and understands how markets and economies work.

    I may have misstated when I suggested that you practice "willful" ignorance.
