poopy doody crappy assassination attempts everywhere in Venezuela! I hereby translate:
Parliamentary deputy Luis Tascon denounced that the attempt on the life of ex-defence minister Raul Baduel, which happened last week, was perpetrated by radical sectors of the ultra-right, who are looking for a martyr in this political moment.
“They need a martyr right now, and they have chosen the figure of Baduel,” Tascon said.
That’s true. The figure of Douglas Rojas certainly isn’t enough for them. Especially when it turns out (as it surely will, sometime soon or late) that his own right-wing buddies did him in because they needed at least one death to blame on you-know-who.
There’s still the lingering mystery of Hector Eduardo Serrano, the man who died in an explosion in front of the Fedecamaras building, too. Notice how all the maggots inside said building didn’t hesitate to come out and dine on his corpse? Well, no wonder. As journalist Alberto Nolia has noted on his VTV show “The Devil’s Papers”, Fedecamaras is an “unburied corpse” itself. Stands to reason that such a cadaver would be crawling with unsavory critters; who else would touch it but the vultures and the flies?
But here’s the kicker: No one seems to know who is currently president of that discredited chamber of commerce, and no one seems to give a shit either. Fedecamaras is officially irrelevant. VTV sent out a reporter team, sat them right in front of the Fedecamaras building, and had them ask passersby if they knew who the president of that organization was, and no one knew.
Imagine that; Fedecamaras has gone from being “respected advisors” to every Adeco and Copeyano presidunce of the old Puntofijista days, to coup-mongers against Chavecito in April 2002, to…nothing. The only way they can still survive is the way all right-wingers do these days: by eating the dead.
I hope the former general is watching these events and taking note of the general pattern, but it’s hard to say. All that gringo dinero may still be flopping around over his eyes like a pair of smelly green horse blinkers.
