      *�I�ve been to T�chira, M�rida, Zulia and Falc�n*. I demand that Maduro
      halt his campaign!�*

      Oh, Majunche. Your campaign may as well be managed by Walt Disney, because
      there�s a distinct odor of mouse about it. Only this mouse is old and dead,
      and has been stinking for several years now. Eleven, to be exact. You�d
      think they could at least come up with a fresh campaign strategy after all
      this time, but no. They�re still up to the same old dirty gringo

      *A leaked document indicates that the right-wing candidate, Henrique
      Capriles Radonski, met for seven hours with the top brass of the Venezuelan
      ultra-right and discussed, intensively, how to proceed in the face of the
      �flood of people who follow Maduro.� Included in the group were members of
      the clergy, US advisors, and Spaniards.*

      According to a dossier presented before the National Assembly by deputy
      Julio Ch�vez, the meeting dealt with two fundamental points: Not attending
      the April 14 elections, or designing an �honorable� exit for their
      candidate but leaving tensions and political chaos in his wake.

      In the first case, according to the document, the US agents, who held sway
      over the meeting, reasoned that �at the moment, you should plan on
      attending the elections, because millions of opposition voters require a
      compelling partisan orientation in the face of the �overwhelming power� of
      the government.�

      They had to �plan a strategic exit because it will be very difficult to
      overcome the other candidate, Nicol�s Maduro. Very well, so this exit
      should be based solidly on facts, with juridical elements, with
      international mobilization, with the help of the powerful media allied with
      the IAPA (Inter-American Press Association): US and Spanish media above

      Further, the document states: �A group of experts in political tensions,
      chaos and destabilization must work to design an objective that will lead
      to an honorable exit for the candidate, but which will leave an
      unmanageable constitutional and juridical disturbance in its wake,
      something like leaving the nation without constitutional language.�

      The dossier continues: �In the hands of the experts in these traumas,
      Capriles will have a �graceful� exit from the campaign.�

      One must take into account that for these crimes, in which many innocents
      will fall, the North American empire is implacable. Once more it will set
      in motion this category of terrible events which will be aimed at derailing
      the democratic direction of the republic. Commotions which we have already
      lived through in the past, or maybe much more refined ones, said the deputy.

      Among the destabilizing actions, marked with an underlined �Could be�:

      1. Electrical sabotages
      2. Food speculation and artificial shortages
      3. Airport accidents, and great tragedies like those of the Amuay refinery
      last year
      4. Introductions of viruses or terrible disease outbreaks
      5. Assassinations of opposition parliamentarians, as well as those of the
      6. Sabotage of the Caracas Metro subway
      7. But PRINCIPALLY, organizing some great massacre of followers of Capriles
      during some public act, provoked by themselves, which will �oblige� the
      candidate [Maduro] to not continue his campaign, which is �evidently
      opportunistic, bloody, and directed by an opprobrious r�gime, dominated by
      the criminal powers of Fidel Castro and international terrorism�.

      *We alert all the people not to fall victim to provocations, and to remain
      vigilant, firm and serene in the face of the most terrible circumstances
      and adversities.*

      Translation mine.

      So, since Maduro is already a front-runner by a margin of no fewer than 14
      percentage points, it�s clear that they need to cover their loser butts
      with something. And that something, just as in April 2002, is VIOLENCE. And
      destabilization and artificial food shortages, as in the following year,
      when they tried to knock Chavecito�s pins out from under him with an
      economic putsch.

      But mainly they�re going to go for violence, which they will then try to
      pin on Maduro, claiming he�s really a puppet of Fidel Castro. What a joke,
      since Castro is retired from political office and in no position to pull
      strings on anyone. And Nicol�s Maduro is nobody�s puppet�unlike Majunche,
      who is very much the puppet of US interests, and those of Spain too, to a
      lesser extent.

      But such is the nature of VenOpIron�a: *projection, projection,
      projection.* Everything
      they�re going to say of Maduro, is actually true of only one party, and
      that�s their own.

      It would be quite funny, if it didn�t involve so much bloodshed and horror.

      **T�chira, M�rida, Zulia and Falc�n are the only states remaining that have
      opposition governors. All the rest have PSUV governments, elected shortly
      after Chavecito�s big victory of October 7. So Majunche�s �tour� has
      consisted mainly of preaching to the choir. He isn�t even trying to win.*
