US destabilization in Latin American geopolitics has makings of real problems (excerpt)

In this week's issue of INTERNATIONAL FORECASTER, editor Bob Chapman writes: (US presidential candidate) John Kerry has attacked Venezuela’s elected president saying, “that he is a dictator ... he is breaking the rules of Democracy, etc.”

If so, then what is Mr. Kerry’s view of "democracy” ... is it to be in the service of transnational corporations.

This also means Mr. Kerry will not stay neutral on free elections if the candidate does not do as Kerry or Bush tell him to do. He, like Bush, supports democratic opposition via economic and moral ... or if you may, immoral force.

There has been the veiled threat of withholding aid and business if the US-selected candidate failed to win.

John Kerry is America’s richest Senator and a skillful maneuvered in the lobbyist game. His values do not include the poor or middle classes ... only the rich. If you dislike George W. Bush, you hate John Kerry ... that is why you should vote for a third party candidate.

In this week's financial newsletter, Chapman also says that Venezuela’s Energy Minister, Rafael Ramirez has said that the Venezuelan government may suspend oil shipments to the USA in case of an eventual conflict or aggression ... he said the suspension of oil supply is his country’s right.

Venezuelan officials reacted sharply to a decision by George (W. Bush) and the neocons ruling via the Overseas Private Investment Corp (OPIC) which ruled that the Venezuelan state oil company had "expropriated" assets belonging to San Diego based Science Applications International (SAIC) ...Venezuela is the USA’s 5th largest exporter.

* OPEC is operating at 95% of capacity and can do very little to further suppress oil prices by increasing the volume of production.
