President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez has repeatedly told that during the last weeks of George W. Bush's presidency in the United States the Bolivarian republic and he, Chavez, personally would be in danger.
The way he called on his allies to be on alert was described in the pro-American mass media and by the opposition members as “persecution mania” and “paranoid fear of death”.
They said nobody had ever made an assassination attempt on him and would hardly do it in future.
There are enough stories how the United States eliminated the unwanted Latin American politicians.
As a rule, Chavez mentions Salvador Allende, who was President of Chile until his death during the coup d'etat in 1973. Then the CIA and the U.S. military intelligence organized the coup to let Augusto Pinochet succeed Allende.
All those politicians did not find support in
the U.S. and thus were doomed.
However, after Fidel officially stepped down, they view Chavez as their major rival in Latin America.
He is opposed to the U.S. in all spheres:
Hugo Chavez initiated the creation of the South American military block to promote integration processes on the continent - a move which Washington could have hardly been happy about. All American military chiefs, who headed the U.S. Southern Commandment, warned Chavez against such steps.
The situation resulted in U.S. preventive
measures aimed at establishment of additional bases in the region, the
'revival' of the Fourth Fleet in the South Atlantic, a boost to the space
surveillance system in Venezuela and all its allies, especially Brazil.
He was detained, but while he was transported
from one place to another, there were always some loyal officers behind him
to prevent the tragedy. They told the guards they would provide an adequate
response if Chavez is assassinated.
The journalistic dossier I compiled during the
years in Venezuela consists of a few heavy volumes. If we add some video
reports from the ultra-conservative Venezuelan and North American TV
channels, containing straightforward statements against Hugo Chavez, and
hundreds volumes of the so-called “anti-Chavez” literature, which is traded
freely in Venezuela, - we'll be able to imagine how intense are the impulses
coming from numerous fanatic terrorists and the opposition members.
Sooner or later he will blow himself up near the presidential car. One does not have to be an expert to name the mass media in Venezuela which deal with this brainwashing:
Their major everyday task is to stir up
hatred to the president. Hugo Chavez calls them “means of information
With the help of its agents in the Colombian
police (Departamento administrativo de seguridad), they formed a
100-member expedition group and sent it to Venezuela. The group comprised
the “paramilitares”, rebels from the so-called department of self-defense,
used in Colombia to fight the Marxist guerrilla groups.
The final aim was to kill the Venezuelan President in September-early November, ahead of the national election of governors and alcaldes. According to recent opinion polls, the opposition has very few chances to win in all 22 states of Latin America. The scenario of Chavez's assassination and the dissolution of the National Election Council was suggested as a means to undermine stability in the region and cause chaos and bloodshed.
As the conspirators believed, such circumstances
would have helped them to seize power, confuse Hugo Chavez supporters and
ask the US help in restoring "true democracy".
For the same purposes, the conspirators received
AT4 grenade guns and Carl Gustav rifles with muzzle velocity of 150 to 700
meters per second. The country was rummaged for any kind of weapons,
including M16 rifles and hand bombs. Some of the conspirators managed to
escape to the Caribbean islands of Bonaire and Curacao, where CIA
network used to be especially active. Others fled to Colombia...
The problem is how to choose the right one to be able to say later,
