Why does the Venezuelan elite want Venezuela to become like the USA?
Why does the Venezuelan elite want Venezuela to become like the USA?

VHeadline.com commentarist Oscar Heck writes: Thank heavens that Venezuela is not following the US model. The US government is reportedly sending 10,000 National Guard to the Louisiana/Mississippi/Georgia area to help the victims of the recent hurricane.

There is a serious discrepancy here ...

Combined, the area of Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia is about 415,000 square kilometers, almost the same area as Iraq (437,000 square kilometers).

The poorer USA people who could not afford leave the region are receiving assistance from only 10,000 US troops while the people of Iraq have been "benefiting" from perhaps as many as 200,000 US troops.

A twenty-fold difference!

Why should the US troops be murdering people in Iraq when they could be helping people in their own country?

This is very strange ... and mind-blowing.

The media is reporting that the hurricane will cost an estimated $30 billion to insurance companies. If half the US population are adults, say 150 million, then the hurricane will cost about $200 per adult in the USA. The money which the insurance companies dish out has to come from somewhere. Insurance companies do not lose money.

They make money.

The local news showed extensive looting going on in the hurricane-struck region ... and coincidentally (?), all the looting (on the show I was watching) was being perpetrated by Blacks. (Not one clip showed a white person looting!) Oh, yes, I forgot to mention that the looting is of no serious concern to the owners of stores ... insurance companies will pay for the losses.

This is capitalism, US-style.

The television show which was covering the hurricane was mentioning that about 30% of the population in the area lives below the poverty line ... and that these are mostly the people who did not leave the area during the hurricane because they could not afford to leave and because they have no insurance to cover losses ... thus they stayed behind to try to protect their belongings.

Again ... US-style capitalism in action.

If you can´t afford it, you lose, you die, you get hurt. What a friendly concept ... very humanistic ... very commendable and admirable ... right?

So that Venezuela can send a few troops to assist Venezuelans in flood-stricken areas whilst sending 20 times as many troops to murders innocent people in a country half way around the world?

So that the poorer Venezuelans who cannot afford insurance can get swept away by flood waters?

So that Venezuelan insurance companies can use natural disasters as excuses to extract more hard-earned money from citizens?

So that the Venezuelan media can show clips of only Black people looting stores?

I think that people in the USA should use the hurricane to demand that their own government bring back all the troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The US government can use the troops to help poorer people in their own country instead of throwing lives and money out the window in countries where the US troops should never have been in the first place!

Here are a few interesting numbers.

A US missile called and air-to-surface missile travels at about 2300 kilometers per hour. If a missile of this kind were to be launched by Iraq into the USA, say, New York city, it would take about 4 hours and 15 minutes to reach its target (New York to Baghdad is about 9700 kilometers, give or take).

Readers, do you realize that the US government was lying to us when they accused Iraq of being a military threat to the USA? The four hours that it takes the missile to reach New York city is plenty of time for US military defense systems to track the missile and destroy it in flight!

Let´s wake up to reality here!

The US government has fooled us all ... and it continues to do so. Iran, a country which the US government is labelling as a nuclear threat to the USA, is further away from the US than Iraq ... and North Korea, another "nuclear threat," is about 7800 kilometers away from California. Any nuclear missile can easily be intercepted in flight!



The US government had convinced millions of innocent people in the USA that Iraq was a military threat ... and now it is trying to convince us that Iran and North Korea are also military threats!

Come on!

Worse yet, they have convinced innocent US taxpayers to pay for military weapons such as air-to-surface missiles. One such missile cost a whopping $6.2 billion to develop and the purchase price of one missile is a staggering $316,856 !!!

Pretty expensive way to kill people!

The $6.2 billion spent on the development of one type of missile (they must have several types) would have come in handy in Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia. After all, it was taxpayers´ money!

Boy, am I glad that Chavez is leading Venezuela away from the US model. Chavez´ missiles are education and health programs ... and they cost less ... and they don´t kill people.

Chavez´ hurricane is the Bolivarian Revolution ... and it does not insure wealthier Venezuelans while leaving poorer Venezuelans to fend for themselves.
