No More Pretense?

Chavez is increasing the intensity of his attacks on those opposed to his policies.

Referring to nationwide civil protests—led by university students—he warned the country Thursday that if they "intensify" he is ready to take "radical measures."

Our government has done a shameful job of standing up for democratic ideals in the hemisphere, appeasing Chavez instead of roundly criticizing him for his actions. The article linked to above, by the WSJ's O'Grady, explains Chavez' predicament, a combination of situations that is very dangerous when someone like him is in charge.
