(1) Thanks and congratulations, excellent & mandatory website
(2) Venezuela? Perhaps I have overlooked it on your site, but it seems to me that US covert intervention in Venezuela is one of the Top 3 Most Active Current US interventions. For evidence that Kerry will assassinate Chavez, since Bush tried and failed, compare the Venezuela/Hugo Chavez coverage of the NY TIMES (http://www.nytimes.com) (all Venezuela coverage by Juan Forero/Larry Rohter) with some unbiased coverage from http://www.venezuelanalysis.com
, or http://www.gregpalast.com
. Or just seek out the 2003 Irish documentary "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," a live-footage document of the April 2002 CIA-supported attempted coup of (2-time democratically elected) Hugo Chavez.
Should there be an active ongoing discussion thread for Venezuela? Or Latin America in general, since US intervention there is so virulent and active and current and growing? (Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, etc. all getting treatment).
Thanks again for a truly influential website. Donations on the way.
