Carta Abierta a la ministra de Asuntos Exteriores de España, Trinidad Jimenez

Podría uno empezar felicitando a su señoría por su nombramiento pero por la manera en que usted inició su gestión preferimos esperar un poco antes de adelantar la cortesía.  En verdad su negación de la existencia de presos políticos en Venezuela es el tipo de error que uno no espera a su nivel.  Pero usted va aprender rápido: su cortesía con nuestro gorila local no le sirvió de mucho ya que este ya está acusando a su gobierno de cobarde.

Uno no sabe si su error se debió a una falta de su equipo de trabajo, o si usted no cumplió con leer su dossier con la atención debida.  Usted sabrá mejor y no especularé.  Tampoco me voy a encargar de explicarle el por que de su error, esperando que la malísima opinión que usted ya posee en Venezuela le obligue si no a reflexionar, por lo menos a aguantarse la lengua de una manera mas diplomática.  Usted ha logrado en una semana la hazaña de quemarse por los dos lados, como decimos aquí, volviéndose perfectamente inútil para su gobierno en cuanto a Venezuela se trate.

Lo que si me permito decirle es que con el tipo de razonamiento que usted esgrimió en su comparecencia en el senado español cualquiera en un futuro cercano puede llegar a decir que ni los presos cubanos ni Aung San Su Kyi son presos políticos ya que todos ellos tienen cargas penales legales contra ellos. Obviamente estirando la definición de la palabra legal.

¿A quien le cree uno mas, a la legalidad de un país o a las ONG recusadas por dichos países?  ¿O es que usted no invocó "causas penales" como escusa a su negligencia?  ¿O es que ahora España se subordina a ciertas ONG para decidir sobre sus posiciones internacionales?  Por favor, explíquenos cuales son los criterios definitivos de su gestión para poder entender mejor sus próximos desplantes que estamos seguros no tardarán en llegar.

Uno pensaba que peor que Moratinos no iba a ser su sustituto.  Pues bien, peor ya ha resultado, y ademas idiota, porque Moratinos era un pillo pero por lo menos sabia contestar y errores así no los cometía.

  1. Great letter Daniel, very appropriate!

    I don't believe in the ignorance of the Spanish government when it comes to knowing that there are political prisoners in Venezuela.Nor do I think they were unaware that ETA members were being trained by Cubillas.

    With Cubillas , they reached a point where they had no choice but to ask for his extradition because the court was requiring it.

    I can't help but feel a perverse sense of enjoyment that Mr Chavez kicked the Spanish government in the behind for making that request, and told them to keep their traps shut.

    That is exactly what those lily livered suckups deserve.

    So much effort in groveling to come to this..buauauauaaahahahah!!!

  2. Daniel, this is a very good open letter. I’m curious: could you give examples of ONGs that support Spain’s foreign policy?

    I remember feeling uneasy about the arrest of Arnaldo Otegi for trying to reorganise Batasuna as a political party. To me that was a political arrest, even if Batasuna is outlawed. Trinidad Jimenez’s PSOE may argue that they don’t take political prisoners, but they do, by most people’s definition. Jimenez has a tail of straw in this matter. I’m sure they need support from some ONGs.

    Then there is the issue of the European Union’s common policy towards Cuba. Spain tried very hard to normalise the situation, no doubt with a view to improving its commercial dealings with the island. Some EU governments, most notably Poland and the Czech Republic, were opposed to Spain’s efforts. Out went Moratinos just before the vote, and in came nice Ms Jimenez. But it didn’t work. If Spain have been arguing that there are almost no political prisoners left in Cuba, why should they admit that there are political prisoners in Venezuela, a close ally of Cuba?

    Perhaps Jimenez and the PSOE administration don’t want to go through the embarrassment of having to receive exiled Venezuelan political prisoners in Madrid.

    i was referring to trini saying that amnesty and hrw where enough for her (when convenient of course). but to reply to your question no, i do nto know of ong in bed with spanish current government becasue i do not follow them that closely even if i watch frequently TVE.

    what i know is that under zapatero spain has had a very left wing foreign policy, probably for the saem reason lula did: they cannot be true lefties at home and to compensate they do not mind screwing up cubans and venezuelans (and others i am sure) so that they may raise their self esteem a notch.

This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
