Chávez said that this is the real confrontation Venezuela is currently going through. “Our real opponent, our real enemy is the US Empire.” If you vote “yes” tomorrow, you’ll vote for Chávez, if you vote “no”, you’ll vote for Bush! How dumb is that. It is a question whether Venezuela should be a democracy or a socialist dictatorship!!
“On Sunday (when a referendum on the proposed changes to the Constitution is to be held) we are going to deal another knockout blow to the American imperialism. Nobody should forget that it is the backdrop of the battle,” Chávez said.
I also read in SvD and DN already has picked up the threat that Venezuela might discontinue to export oil to U.S. I don’t know who should feel more threatened the gas consumers of the U.S. or the Venezuelans of a socialist economy supported by oil.
