Scientific Assassinations

¡Aló, Presidente!
Never in the history of the Americas has a political leader had such incontestable democratic legitimacy. Since coming to power in 1999, there were 16 elections in Venezuela. Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías won 15, the last on October 7, 2012. He defeated his rivals with a margin of 10-20 percentage points. James Carter, former US President, declared that Venezuela’s electoral system during the government of Hugo Chávez was "the best in the world". However, in Venezuela GDP per capita rose from 4,100 USD in 1999 to 10,810 USD in 2011, while public debt fell from 45% of GDP to 20% (HERE). In 2007 Venezuela withdrew from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, after early repayment of all its debts. This made Chávez the No. 1 enemy of the IMF in the American hemisphere, that once accounted for most of its business (HERE). Today, as a fully sovereign state and nation, oil-rich Venezuela offers more direct support to the Americas than the United States. Crucial for that project is the Bank of the South, a brainchild of Chávez (HERE & HERE & HERE & HERE & HERE).

In 2010 Chávez was also at the heart of the creation of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) which brings together for the first time the 33 nations of the region, emancipated from US-tutelage. In 2011 Chávez challenged the FED's fiat money ponzi-scheme again by ordering Venezuela’s 211 tonnes of gold reserves to be returned from New York, London and Zurich to Caracas. No one taking his belongings and running away from the plantation was ever appreciated by the United States - let alone a liberator (HERE & HERE & HERE). William Blum sums it up: "There was no one in the entire universe that those who own and run United States, Inc. wanted to see dead more than Hugo Chávez. He was worse than Allende. Worse than Fidel Castro. Worse than any world leader not in the American camp because he spoke out in the most forceful terms about US imperialism and its cruelty. Repeatedly. Constantly. Saying things that heads of state are not supposed to say. At the United Nations, on a shockingly personal level about George W. Bush. All over Latin America, as he organized the region into anti-US-Empire blocs." (HERE).  

In 2009 US-agent and then French President Nicolas Sarkozy ordered the assassination of his counterpart Hugo Chávez. The operation was a fiasco (HERE). Now - on March 5th, 2013 - Chávez died of cancer due to a bio-weapon, produced and launched by the "enemies of Venezuela". This is the official statement of Venezuela's government (HERE & HERE). Was Chávez killed as the result of an executive order from a Nobel Peace Prize winner, top terrorist and mass murderer? Very likely: Yes (HERE). In 2011 Chávez had called the epidemic of cancer among Latin American presidents a strange and alarming phenomenon: "Would it be so strange that they [in the US] have invented the technology to spread cancer and we won't know about it for 50 years?"

Néstor Kirchner, president of Argentina: died of colon cancer (2010)
■  Cristina Kirchner, president of Argentina: thyroid cancer (2011)
■  Ollanta Humala, president of Peru: gut cancer (2011)
■  Lula da Silva, former president of Brazil: larynx cancer (2011)
■  Fernando Lugo, former president of Paraguay: lymph cancer (2010)
■  Evo Morales, president of Bolivia: nasal cancer (2009)
■  Dilma Rousseff, president of Brazil: lymph cancer (2009)
Juan Manuel Santos, president of Colombia: prostate cancer (2011) 

Recently re-elected Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa may join that list: He rejects free-market reforms and is expanding ties with China. All these individuals are or were struggling to expedite Latin America’s integration process and to get rid of US dominance. At first glance, all these cancer-cases seem isolated incidents, but, upon closer examination, reveal a growing and disturbing trend of hi-tech assassinations and archaic savagery in contemporary Western politics (HERE & HERE & HERE & HERE & HERE & HERE). Fidel Castro, himself target of hundreds of CIA-assassination attempts, told Chávez: "These people [the US-Americans] have developed technology. You are very careless. Take care what you eat, what they give you to eat." Castro almost died from a mysterious stomach and intestinal ailment he contracted after attending a parallel «People’s Summit» held concurrent to the July 2006 Cordoba MERCOSUR Summit with Chávez and Néstor Kirchner. A US Embassy cable from Buenos Aires demonstrated Washington’s displeasure: "What was remarkable about the summit was the degree to which ... Chávez and Castro dominated."
