The message from Chavez is clear here: you can do all the elections you want, I could not care less. My power is at gun point, deal with it.
Only idiots and mercenaries can now pretend that we are in a civilian democracy dedicated to the betterment of the people. Think about it: the latest weapons purchase to Russia is roughly equivalent to three years of the Venezuelan health budget (and even more depending on who does the math).
