Hugo Chavez on the background of the Libyan events

Hugo Chavez on the background of the Libyan eventsOn the attack of the Libyan "rebels" on the embassy and the residence of Venezuela in Tripoli on August 23, Western news agencies reported as if by the way, not too pedaling the topic. Fortunately, there were no casualties. Venezuelan Ambassador Afif Tajeldine and other staff members moved to a safe place, and then left Libya altogether. Later it became known that the mercenaries defeated and looted in the area of ​​Tripoli only the diplomatic mission of Venezuela. That is, a target operation was conducted, which was led by persons of “European appearance with a military bearing”.

Venezuelan representative to the UN, Jorge Valero, spoke in the Security Council to condemn this outrageous violation of international law and the organization’s Charter. Latin American political analysts see in the attack of the “rebels” on the diplomatic mission of Venezuela in Tripoli the ultimatum to Chávez: after Gaddafi, it's your turn! It is believed that the destabilization format used by the Empire in Libya and Syria was decided to be applied in Venezuela in the near future. On a subversive scenario, Reuters reported on August 17 in the article "Before the presidential election in Venezuela will increase the scale of violence." The protests of “outraged citizens” will be accompanied by coordinated support of the mass media - BBC, Euronews, CNN, Fox, Al-Jazzera and others. There are also “acts of anarchic lawlessness, vandalism and street violence” involving terrorist groups from abroad. In Venezuela, an updated version of the “color revolutions” will be tested with an emphasis on the use of weapons. At all costs, to prevent Hugo Chávez from being re-elected in 2012 - the Pentagon, intelligence services, the State Department, Washington’s closest allies, including England, Spain, Israel and Canada, are working on this task ...

Hugo Chavez is aware of these plans and, as a politician-tested politician, not only demonstrates confidence in another election victory, but promises to fight again for the presidency in 2018. The theses that Chavez puts forward for colleagues are simple and clear. Reliance on the people and the army, the creation of the Patriotic Popular Front (Polo Patriotico Popular) will help to cope with any conspiracies. The empire is not omnipotent! More optimism: the United States in its current "imperial quality" is doomed! By the middle of the XXI century, a permanent financial and economic crisis and internal political, ethnic, corporate and other civil strife will undermine the resilience of the country. Step by step, through blood and suffering, the United States will have to abandon the role of "world gendarme" and "global parasite". The agony will accelerate after new unpromising foreign policy adventures, attempts to defeat the “ideologically unacceptable regimes” that will arise again and again from the ashes. The desperate search for ways out of the impasse for the (historically doomed) imperialist system will end, according to Chavez, with the collapse of the Empire.

Chavez constantly points out that the internal socio-political contradictions in the United States and Western countries have reached unprecedented sharpness. These contradictions are silenced, suppressed, but the spontaneous protests of the underprivileged segments of the population, including a significant part of the middle class, are increasingly difficult to control. The traditional repressive potential of the authorities is not enough. Therefore, it is increasingly said about the use of armed forces against their own population. The appropriate training of the military is already underway. The mentality of the US officer corps was so deformed during punitive "anti-terrorist wars" that it took for granted the "conceptual attitude" to the need for preventive suppression of the "internal conspiracy" allegedly prepared by Muslim extremists, "populist" leaders, "red emissaries", activists of "anti-systems" " etc.

The militarization of the United States has taken on such a scale that it is impossible to switch to a “peaceful track” without serious consequences. Even a minimal reduction in the military budget will give impetus to a terminal collapse of the economy and finances. But the dynamic functioning of the military industrial complex is possible only through the escalation of armed conflicts. The prospect of hot wars in Syria, Iran, the Caucasus, etc. rejected by the overwhelming majority of the US electorate. You can tune it in a warlike way only through the next production “in the genre” of the blown-up towers of the Shopping Center in New York. Chávez has no doubts about the authorship of this “blockbuster” attack - it was designed and carried out by the special services of the USA and Israel! The President of Venezuela is constantly returning to this topic, on his initiative, state television channels have repeatedly appeared with exposing programs, focusing on the likelihood of new, more sophisticated provocations of the special services, including against the Bolivarian regime. Chavez knows that the most trained personnel of the CIA, the United States Military Intelligence, the Mossad and other Western services work in the Venezuelan sector.

Aggressive convulsions of the Empire, its refusal to comply with international law, the unpredictability of the decisions and actions taken by Washington, the bet on meanness and treachery “Bitch sons” of the Empire cannot fail to lead to the emergence in the states claiming to preserve independence and real sovereignty, a reciprocal (defensive) reaction. The formation of regional centers of power will be completed at an accelerated pace. Even in those countries that were defeated by the combined NATO / US forces under various falsified pretexts, they are gradually consolidating and in the future will take over the anti-American resistance forces. Every action gives rise to opposition.

After the failed attempts of the Empire to overthrow the Bolivarian government in 2002-2003, Chavez is doing everything possible to distance himself from the United States in the financial, economic, energy and military fields. This is not a confrontational course - the forces are too unequal, but the desire to diversify international relations, to create a weighty alternative to the state of things that existed before Chávez came to power. The former Fourth Republic was actually another “associated state” of the Empire, the “voluntary” version of Puerto Rico. The Americanization of the Venezuelan elite has reached such an extent that the prospect of “entering” the United States seemed very tempting to it. To supply the Empire with oil at extremely low prices and enjoy the comfortable life of the “golden billion” - this is it, the unfulfilled ideal of those liberal politicians and entrepreneurs who were rejected by the Bolivarian revolution. Now they are the most implacable opponents of the “dictatorship of Chávez”. They criticize his steps to strengthen independence. The nationalization of oil, the strengthening of diversified ties with Russia and China, the creation of a “populist bloc” ALBA - the Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of Latin America, the establishment of close relations with the South American giant Brazil - all this is unacceptable for the Venezuelan opposition, as it puts off the possibility of revenge.

Washington’s overt dissatisfaction caused Chavez’s recent decision to place operational international currency reserves in friendly BRICS countries, including Russia, and return Venezuela’s gold reserves to the national central bank. “We have nothing to hide,” said Chavez. - The economies of Europe and the USA go to the bottom. For this reason, it is time to test the strength of the economies of such countries as China, Russia and Brazil ”... According to the president, the transfer of foreign exchange reserves from Europe and the United States to the allied countries will contribute to the “healing” of the country's resources “on the eve of the approaching global capitalist crisis.” There are other reasons explaining the actions of Venezuela to export gold from Western banks, in particular, the looting by NATO of the Libyan reserves (the so-called “Gaddafi’s gold”) by NATO. The Chávez government has no doubt that under certain circumstances Venezuelan accounts in Western countries will also be “repressively frozen”, for example, under the pretext of lawsuits from Western companies that have “suffered” from nationalization. In addition, the transfer of gold under the national roof will help Venezuela to insure against the depreciation of the euro and the dollar.

Chavez believes that the example of Venezuela in transferring funds can and should be followed by other Latin American countries that keep banks in the “North about 570 billion dollars,” thereby financing its development. The first request for the repatriation of gold was sent to the Bank of England, in which 1980 tons of metal have been stored since 99. Next in line is the return of Venezuelan gold from the United States, Canada, Switzerland and France. In total, foreign banks contain a little less than 58% of the country's total gold reserve, which reaches 365 tons. The call of Chavez on the transfer of funds from the banks of the North to the national banks was sympathetic to the member countries of ALBA. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during his August (2011) visit to Caracas said that Venezuela’s proposal to deploy its gold reserves in Russia would be readily considered, i.e. actually supported the actions of Chávez. A similar reaction was made from Beijing.

The return of gold to Venezuela and Chavez’s persistent attempts to create in Latin America financial institutions independent of the West are perceived by analysts as “extremely risky events.” One of the key reasons for turning Gaddafi into a “political outcast” and organizing the hunt for him was his plans to transfer multi-billion dollar foreign exchange reserves from Western banks to Chinese banks. Therefore, there is no doubt that the West will not forgive Chavez for his efforts to expose the myth of the "success of financial stabilization" of the countries of the first world. The categorical words of the Venezuelan president that “the economies of Europe and the USA are going to the bottom” were heard by all who know how to listen. I hope that in Russia Chavez’s warning was not left without attention.
