Sunday  4/14/02

Chavez reclaims Venezuelan presidency  4/14/02 AP: "Chavez's attorney general, Isaias Rodriguez, told Carmona's ministers they were under arrest pending possible charges. "They must take responsibility. They will be put on trial with all their rights, but they will be put on trial," Cabello said. Some military officials also would be tried for military rebellion, he added."

Arab telethons boost Palestinian cause  4/14/02 BBC: "Rulers and citizens in the Gulf Arab states have donated millions of dollars to the Palestinians in fundraising telethons held around the region. The Saudi organisers of a three-day telethon say they have received donations topping $150m."

In Pakistan, a Troubling Victory in Hunt for Al Qaeda  4/14/02 NYT: "Finding Mr. Zubaydah in Faisalabad, along with a group of Al Qaeda men who Pakistani police said included men from the Palestinian territories, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen, is the surest indication yet that the possible hide-outs reach far beyond the tribal areas. In Faisalabad, the Qaeda men were captured only four weeks after moving into the rental house. But Pakistani police officials said the breakthrough came when the fugitives made a mistake others may now avoid — making telephone calls from their hide-out, possibly on a satellite phone, that triggered electronic monitoring systems run by American intelligence."

Fracaso la "mano negra" tras el golpe de estado en Venezuela  4/14/02 Prensa Latina, Cuba 

Venezuela: Rumored U.S. Involvement Could Hurt Bush Administration  4/14/02 Stratfor: from a respected US Strategic Forecasting firm - "Human intelligence sources in Venezuela and Washington told STRATFOR April 14 that the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. State Department may have been involved separately in the events that took place in Caracas between April 5 and April 13. If the information is correct, the reinstatement of President Hugo Chavez less than 48 hours after he was toppled by a civilian-military coup could have disastrous implications for the Bush administration's policy in Latin America… Our sources in Venezuela and the United States report that the CIA had knowledge of, and possibly even supported, the ultra-conservative civilians and military officials who tried unsuccessfully to hijack interim President Pedro Carmona Estanga's administration. Sources in Venezuela identified this group as including members of the extremely conservative Catholic Opus Dei society and military officers loyal to retired Gen. Ruben Rojas, who also is a son-in-law of former President Rafael Caldera. Caldera, who governed from 1969 to 1973 and from 1994 to 1998, founded the Christian Democratic Copei party."

The oil boys tried to pass these off as the work of Chavez when it seems at least 6 of his supporters were killed. Texbook CIA action.

Coup in Venezuela: An Eyewitness Account  4/13/02 Counterpunch: texbook CIA: "As it turns out, and as will probably never be reported by the media, most of the dead are Chavez supporters. Also, as will probably never be told, the snipers were members of an extreme opposition party, known as Bandera Roja."

Warner says Constitution can be a luxury  4/13/02 Gainsville Sun, FL: "When national security is threatened, there are times when the United States cannot afford the luxury of adhering to the Constitution, said Florida Solicitor General Tom Warner Thursday afternoon." Didn't take much to rip off the mask of civility, a little more than a day's worth of Vietnamese casualties during the Viet Nam war…

President in custody after at least 11 die in Caracas protests  4/13/02 IHT: "Pedro Aristimuno, the secretary of health for metropolitan Caracas, said that 10 people who suffered mortal wounds in the fracas were brought into the Vargas hospital. "What we noticed was that the most serious wounds were in the cranium and cheek," he said in an interview. "They appeared to be shots from above." - these were the snipers from Bandera Roja, an extremist group. Tied to who? CIA? Narcoterrorist Miami Mafia? This is their style.

US returns to bad old ways in Venezuela  4/13/02 IntelBriefing: "Pentagon sources gleefully revealed that the United States provided critical military and intelligence support to the Venezuelan military coup against President Hugo Chavez on Friday 12th April. Under the cover of the COMPTUEX and a Joint Task Force Exercise (JTFEX) training exercises in the Caribbean the US Navy provided signals intelligence and communications jamming support to the Venezuelan military. Particular focus by US Navy SIGINT vessels was on communications to and from the Cuban, Libyan, Iranian, and Iraqi diplomatic missions in Caracas. All four countries had expressed support for Chavez and the plans for US military and intelligence support for the coup d'etat were brought upto date following President Bush's visit to Peru and El Salvador in March 2002. The National Security Agency (NSA) supported the coup using personnel attached to the US Southern Command's Joint Interagency Task Force East (JIATF-E) in Key West, Florida. NSA's Spanish-language linguists and signals interception operators in Key West; Sabana Seca on Puerto Rico and the Regional Security Operating Centre (RSOC) in Medina, Texas also assisted in providing communications intelligence to US military and national command authorities on the progress of the coup d'etat. From eastern Colombia, CIA and US contract military personnel, ostensibly used for counter-narcotics operations, stood by to provide logistics support for the leading members of the coup. Their activities were centred at the Marandua airfield and along the border with Venezuela." etc etc

U.S. welcomes change at top in Venezuela, likely return of oil flow  4/13/02 Seattle Post Intelligence: Officials at the White House and the State Department approve of the coup, which they likely had carefully planned, the signature signs are there: "The two officials blamed Chavez -- a fiery former paratrooper -- for the ouster, saying that "undemocratic actions committed or encouraged by the Chavez administration" had "provoked" the military takeover." Provoked by killing demonstrators in a mob attacking the presidential palace - try having a mob in front of the White House these days! Added to which 6 of the 10 dead turned out to have been Chavez supporters, likely killed by Caracas police, whose mayor is a Chavez enemy.

Festival promoter Joe Santangelo called off the three-day music fest because the event had lost Coors as its lead sponsor, ticket sales had declined, and drawing performers during an economic boycott had become an iffy proposition."

Among the dead, the driver for Vice President Diosdado Cabello, shot in the face… In addition, the analyst said that there is a plot similar to that which defeated Salvador Allende in Chile and it was activated when, a few days ago, the new US Ambassador to Venezuela, by the name of Shapiro, took office. According to Gomez Gomez, he was "involved in the dirty war of Central America."

The executives are conducting a work slowdown that has seriously cut production and exports in Venezuela, the No. 3 oil supplier to the United States and the No. 4 oil exporter in the world."

They do this in the strong belief that, like Mr. Arafat, Mr. Chavez exports terrorism. In his case, to neighboring Colombia and elsewhere as he seeks to foster his own twisted vision for the region. Over the course of the last year, Mr. Chavez has become a huge thorn in the side of our State Department. He has cultivated personal friendships with the dictators who rule the rogue nations of Cuba, Iraq and Libya, while openly taunting the United States."

He has sent his secretary of state to the region to try to end the bloodshed. Yet Sharon says he will remove the tanks and troops whenever it suits him. This is an insult to Bush and the United States."

Thorn in the side of new world order  4/10/02 Iriahs Times: On the top ten list of reasons why Chavez had to go: "Chávez has characterised the US bombardment of Afghanistan as responding to "terror with terror". He brandished photographs of Afghan children killed by US bombs and called for an end to "the slaughter of the innocents". The US response to this impertinence was to send its ambassador, Donna Hrinak, to see Chávez. They had what a US official said (according to the Washington Post of February 23rd) "a very difficult meeting". She told the democratically elected president (again according to the Washington Post) "to keep his mouth shut on these important issues".

Israelis and Indians  4/9/02 Counterpunch: interesting analysis: "It is necessary to put the question more sharply to exclude weasely answers. The Indians sometimes murdered innocent civilians, including children. These acts were right, wrong, or morally indifferent. Which were they? I can't see that they were morally indifferent, can you? Were they wrong? If so, they must have been awfully wrong, because they involved murdering children. Is that what we want to say? I suggest not. I suggest the acts were terrible, cruel, and ultimately justified. My reasons are familiar to everyone. The Indians' very existence as a people was threatened. More than threatened; their society was doomed without resistance. They had no alternative. Moreover, every single white person, down to the children, was an enemy, a being which, allowed to live, would contribute to the destruction of the Indians' collective existence. The Indians had no chance of defeating the whites by conventional military means. So their only resort was to hit soft targets and do the maximum damage. That wasn't just the right thing to do from their point of view. It was the right thing to do, period, because the whites had no business whatever coming thousands of miles to destroy the Indian people."

Israel: A power that outstrips even U.S. in region  4/9/02 NJ Star Ledger: "Israel can field 19 divisions of ground troops, by some counts; the United States boasts 13 divisions worldwide and would need weeks to move any significant military force into the region. Israel's air force, which flies souped-up U.S. F-15 and F-16 fighters, can generate nearly 3,000 sorties, or combat missions, per day. The United States can sustain about 1,600 sorties a day. That kind of combat punch has given Israel unprecedented freedom of action, not just against lightly armed Palestinian street fighters, but against its traditional enemies of Syria and Egypt as well."

They blew open two safes and confiscated all the cash and documents contained within. " You can't imagine the immensity of the destruction," said the Palestinian official. According to his account, the soldiers also used his co-workers as "human shields" . During the nine hours the officials were neither allowed to drink or use the toilet. The Education Administration in Ramallah is responsible for about 800,000 students and 40,000 teachers. Without the files and archives that were confiscated by the Israelis, it will be impossible to continue to run and organize the educational system, said the inspector."

Estimates of the total number of Muslims range from 0.7 to 1.2 billion worldwide and 3 to 6 million in the U.S. About 20% of all people on earth follow Islam. The religion is in a period of rapid growth.

Christianity is currently the largest religion in the world. It is followed by about 33% of all people -- a percentage that has remaind stable for decades. It is expected that, if current trends continue, Islam will become the most popular religion sometime in the mid-21st century.
