    Who is the culprit? Who has interests in Chavez's defeat? Its enemy, the US.
    At the brink of a new election announcing Hugo Chavez a 20% lead over the opposition, the Venezuelian president has a rosy future. Given the implementation of social reforms supported by the oil industry, Chavez is shouldered by its people.
    What will be the US next move?

      You should educate yourself on Chavez . He's nuts; he rigs his elections, suppresses and jails his detractors, has taken over the country's media outlets, has outlawed the publication of official currency conversion rates, had used his authority to take over privately owned businesses in the country, and is on bad terms with neighboring Colombia because of his not-so-secret support of the FARC (Colombia's homegrown terrorists).  And none of that has to do with the US, although he likes to blame the US for everything. You won't find this in US media, but you'll find it a frequent news topic in Colombian media.

        +1 Chavez has very good relations with the States. Venezuela's  enemies are internal, not external...

      David Koch probably is behind the oil refinery fire in Richmond California and in Venezuela (a lot of the U.S. gas come from there). Both have raised gas prices for labor day. When you see 2 more refineries blow before the election, think about what I'm saying. $6.00 a gallon for gas and the election goes to Romney.

      And Koch, he's making billions on this.

    If your goal is to convince people that America has caused damage to a foreign refinery, why don't you simply trumpet to the world that "I believe America did this foul deed without a shred of evidence and you should, too!".  At least be honest about it rather than trying to sneak through the back door with bogus emotional arguments that have no bearing on the matter.  You'll still collect followers and believers; there are millions in this world that think America as the home of the devil and will believe anything at all negative about the country whether true or not.

    Remember the Florida Zimmerman case where the network broadcast a doctored 911 tape to convince people that Zimmerman was a racist?  Not much difference here, although the network did apologize (after being caught) for their lack of honesty and ethics.  Will you do the same?

      Just answer this simple question who has interests in destituating Chavez? The elite is one. Who is the other? Who was one of its major importer? And which country has been the Chavez's mortal enemy since elected?
