Why It Quit the Organization of American States
A pesar de las protestas, los especialistas opinan que el chavismo aún tiene espaldas para aguantar en el poder.
More regional governments are waking up to Venezuela’s disaster and are willing to do something about it. If Washington assumes a more unilateral, interventionist stance, progress could stall, drawing the United States and a transformed Latin America further apart.
A pesar de que todos los países de América Latina se han comprometido formalmente a adoptar medidas colectivas para corregir los quebrantamientos de la democracia, se ignoraron las crecientes violaciones de los derechos humanos y el orden democrático en Venezuela.
Pode levar o governo autocrático venezuelano a se enraizar mais solidamente, fraturar e enfraquecer ainda mais a oposição já tolhida e

Two decades ago, the US and Latin America seemed poised to forge new political and economic partnerships. Since Chávez, the sense of community has dissipated.
What will be the most important issues of the Venezuelan race? Is the election likely to be free and fair?
The best scenario for Chávez is to distribute resources again by increasing funding to social programs or misiones.
Chávez’s sickness has exposed him as vulnerable. People are beginning to realize that he is not eternal, that his mandate is limited.
Chavez’s illness and physical limitations will inevitably compound his already serious political problems in Venezuela.
Is there a real risk that the political and social situation in Venezuela could turn chaotic as a result of Chávez’s illness?
Chávez has aroused considerable curiosity. Beside Cuba’s Fidel Castro, no other Latin American leader has elicited as many journalistic accounts or serious analytic and conceptual contributions.
Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, has clearly been enticed by the Libyan drama, where his longtime friend and ally, Muammar al-Qaddafi, is under siege from rebel forces.
Even with loaded dice, Chávez may be running scared. What to do to preserve power? That’s all that has ever mattered.
