About this product
- DescriptionPresident Hugo Chavez openly defies the ruling class in the United States, daring to advance universal access to health care and education, to remove itself from the ecomic orbit dominated by the United States, to diversify its production to meet human needs and promote human development, and to forge an ecomic coalition between Latin American countries. But as Bush Versus Chavez reveals, Venezuela's revolutionary process has drawn more than simply the ire of Washington. It has precipitated an ongoing campaign to contain and cripple the democratically elected government of Latin America's leading oil power. Bush Versus Chavez details how millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars are used to fund groups - such as the National Endowment for Democracy, the United States Agency for International Development, and the Office for Transition - with the express purpose to support counter-revolutionary groups in Venezuela. It describes how Washington is attempting to impose endless sanctions, justified by fabricated evidence, to cause ecomic distress. And it illuminates the build up of U.S. military troops, operations, and exercises in the Caribbean, that specifically threaten the Venezuelan people and government. Bush Versus Chavez exposes the imperialist machinations of Washington as it tries to thwart a socialist revolution for the twenty-first century.
