To summarize, just look at USA's ambiguity towards the Coup D'etat à la Pinochet and how haughty they are as the worldwide leaders of democracy and human rights....

Your guest Alex really surprised me with his apologetic excuses and ignorance regarding the Obama Administration and U.S.'s role in supporting undemocratic actions in Latin America. And, Yes Alex, the U.S. does have a vision for Latin America. Their dirty fingerprints are on every recent coup and they keep funneling money to undermine real democracy. Wake up Alex and read up a little more. During the whole interview I kept wondering what "interests are you obligated to" that would cause you to be so blind to the truth!

Make no mistake, America Latina has had about enough of American exploitation and now wants the Gringos to go home. Hugo Chavez Frias the best president Venezuela ever had died, but his vision of a Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela lives on in the minds of his people. Chavez was no dictator but a true patriot that cared for the people of Venezuela.

One day it will be written that man came out of the barrio to give his people a better chance in life, than those that came before him, that man was Hugo Chavez Frais.
