An analogy sent by a reader

December 27, 2002

This was sent by a reader named Eliana, not all the analogies are perfect, PDVSA is owned by the Government, for example, but it does put it into a perspective that may be understood by Americans.

American Friends:

In proper proportions, what the Citizens of Venezuela are doing raises questions that I want to put forth to you:

What would America do if your President Owned (yes owned, not influenced) Congress, the Supreme Court, the Attorney General, and all high officials and you are helpless and have to rely only on yourselves?

What would America do if President George Bush forced Secretary Colin Powell into early retirement, and with him, most 4, 3 and 2 Star Generals, and replaced them with One Star Generals and Colonels that he feels are true to him?

What would America do if President Bush decided not to respect Human Rights any more?

What would America do if 22 million Americans demanded to have Free Elections to do away with a corrupt Government it found it had decided to openly embrace communism , but you didn’t vote to have your Democracy assassinated?

What would America do if President George Bush decided that he didn’t trust the Army to be unconditional to him, and thus decided to have Milosevic send him some of his Elite troops to protect him from the American Citizens and assure he stays in power?

What would America do if President Bush decided to fire Vice President Dick Cheney, and put a Lieutenant friend from the Army in his place? and then fire the three Vice Presidents!

What would America do if President Bush decided to fire all management and take over EXXON MOBIL, AMOCO, CONOCOPHILLIPS, SHELL America, CHEVRONTEXACO,OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM, SUNOCO,  and all smaller oil companies, and when the American citizens working in them went on Strike, President Bush decided tocall the National Guard to attack these unarmedprotesters, men and women, with Tear Gas and hit them with Machetes?

What would America do if President Bush asked Fidel Castro to invade the USA on his behalf, have mercenaries come ashore and put them in the officers home’s in Annapolis, Tallahassee, the Georgia and South Carolina coast , and have Mrs. Powell and the wives of other military officers cook for them so that these mercenaries are not seen or detected by the way they speak? keeping them in hiding until the time comes for them to kill unarmedcivilians, under Presidential order?

What would America do if 120 million Americans took to the streets in protest against a legally elected President who decided that he didn’t like Democracy any more, and that Americans would now be ruled by Osama Bin Ladenand friends?

These incredible things are happening in Venezuela right now. The citizens of Venezuela will not give up. Are you going to continue to support “President” Chavez’s Regime and have our blood in your conscience?

What would America do in two weeks when preparing for War with Irak’s Saddam Hussein and having lost 2.000.000 Barrels of dependable Oil from Venezuela?Oil from Venezuela will not flow as long as this modern day Dictator, Chávez, is in Power.
