And now Libyan air-force shooting at protesters?

The latest chilling news coming from Libya is that the airforce planes would be flying over Benghazi and shooting protesters. Oh dear, that International Court at the Hague is going to get plenty of work to do!  Let's hope that those are totally unfounded rumors because if they are not then this is truly, truly ugly and will have international consequences.  Not to mention possibly genocidal as Benghazies are of a different "tribe" as Tripoli folks.

And is this why Hugo bought Sukhois to Russia?  and Hugo, if this is true, you better do not shelter that creep in Venezuela!!!!!

    Don't underestimate the capacity for brutality...

    Libya's chief diplomat to the UN has called this genocide... and with that statement, we know he's not going home again.

  3. Technically speaking Sukhois are useless for that kind of activity, the fly way too fast and run out of room quick, I'd worry more about the Helicopters Hugo wants: those are tailor made for oppression, ask the Kurds and Shiites in Iraq.

    i say sukhoi, you say chopper, but we all know that the end result is explosive in the ass of the opponent....

    the thing i meant to say is that for venezuela sukhoi are expensive and useless at any point of view. except for intimidation purposes. if in cadena chavez says "i will throw my sukhois at you if you do not stay quiet" the effect will be there as no one will bother knowing whether the sukhois are any good at repression.

    that is what qaddafi junior tried to do last night without much success so far it seems, except that planes of some sorts did indeed get used for repression.

    YES, It could happen.

    Some the opponent's ass may explode but in the end Venezuela could be saved from this SOB Thugo Chavez.

    It is time to have "Day of Rage" in Venezuela and Latam.

    Castro brothers watch out. The "Day of Rage" is coming to Cuba

  7. Rumor has it Qaddafi is already in Fuerte Tiuna. Great Britain reported he was on his way. Of course Izarra denies this.

    in fuerte tiuna!? you better not believe or even pay attention to these rumors. if gaddafy were indeed to come to venezuela he certainly would not be put up at fuerte tiuna, rather at la orchila or maracay.

  10. Well, you know things are serious when the Chavez propaganda outlet that masquerades as a news organization is admitting there is unrest. Earlier, Telesur merely printed the regime's assertions, that government supporters were equally present and that "foreign" (Guess who!) forces were manipulating things.

    Even this story is still loaded with biases, notice the list countries with unrest, Iran doesn't appear.

    One of the things I love about people in Venezuela is the sense of humor. There are reports of sightings of Gaddifi. He was spotted in Petare sellng shawarmas.

    Venezuelan humor, how about this one in Noticias24: Quaddafi has decided against exile in Venezuela as personal safety conditions are awful.

  14. Do you think Chavez is going to denounce the plane attacks?

    Nah, me neither. He can only criticize a dictator who uses different tactics than his.

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.
