    When you don’t want to take orders from the US, they try to take you out of office. 2002 Venezuela – The CIA attempts to overthrow the democratically elected government of Venezuela. According to intelligence analyst Wayne Madsen, “the CIA provided Special Operations Group personnel, headed by a lieutenant colonel on loan from the U.S. Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to help organize the coup.” Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has irritated the U.S. with his 2001 Hydrocarbon Law, which doubles royalties on foreign oil companies and requires a majority government stake in future joint ventures. Soldiers supporting the coup take control of the presidential palace, arrest Chavez and fly him to the Venezuelan island of La Orchil, where he is imprisoned. Businessman Pedro Carmona claims power and, in his first move as president, dissolves the democratically elected National Assembly, the Supreme Court and other key institutions, while arresting Chavez supporters. The U.S. immediately recognizes the Carmona government. However, the coup soon unravels when thousands of anti-coup protesters surround the presidential palace demanding Hugo Chavez’s reinstatement. Two days later, Hugo Chavez triumphantly returns to office. (Steve Kangas, CIA Meddling in Latin America…)

    Because we are the only superpower and you are helpless to stop us from doing anything we want. All you can do is come on here and whine because your pathetic country has wimpy men in a wimpy military.

    I don’t know. As a conservative I wish we’d quit this. It’s too expensive to maintain this empire. Bring our troops home, put them on the border, and tell the terrorists, “Do you feel lucky? Well do ya punk?”

    It’s what the reigning superpower does. I’m sorry that it happens to be us at the moment. Feel better?
