Posada, Bosch, and U.S. hypocrisy

The U.S. Department of State has blasted Cuba and Venezuela for not cooperating in the war on terrorism. (What, no Cuban or Venezuelan troops in Iraq?) This while the U.S. harbors Cuban terrorists Luis Posada Carriles (a fugitive from Venezuela who has now requested U.S. citizenship) and Orlando Bosch (whose release from prison was ordered by Bush the Elder, who I’m sure got thank-you notes from Orlando and Jeb).

Venezuela is also accused of cutting links with the U.S. How dare Venezuela act like an independent nation! The U.S. says that Venezuelan president Chavez has become "increasingly authoritarian at home." I thought that the U.S. liked authoritarian regimes in Latin America (unless, of course, they're "Communist"), even helping overthrow democracies to bring them about. The U.S. also says Chavez “promotes an aggressive form of populism abroad.” The U.S. is the last nation on earth that should accuse some other country of promoting something abroad. (Though populism, which claims to represent the common people, certainly does sound evil.)

The hypocrisy of the U.S. knows no bounds or shame and never will. Meanwhile, an article that answers the question “Who Is Orlando Bosch?”:

Ron,

Countries are beginning to openly defy the US. As well as Venezuela, Cuba and a recently elected left wing Government in Chile, there's Iran's open defiance of America and Mexico's Congress voting for decriminalising small quantities of a wide variety of drugs, including peyote. The DEA is surely livid about that one. And the Mexicans will be getting a tourism boom into the bargain. :lol::lol: President Fox hasn't signed it yet. I think he plans to sign it on Wednesday. Hope he doesn't go hunting with Dick Chaney.

I must say the case of Posada gives the lie to the fake "war on terror." Moreover the open public calls by Bush's supporters for Chavez to be assassinated are terrorism by any standards...except apparently for Mr Bush and his poodle Tony Blair.
