as the vultures gather to suck beautiful Venezuela dry

now that Chavez is dead, the american oil companies chomping at the bit begin to salivate & lick their lips, seething with the foam of potent country-gutting rabies--- for while he was alive, Venezuela was one of the only countries left, who resisted the empire’s attempts to penetrate it & whore it out to the highest capitalist bidder--- with Chavez dead, not only will the oil soon be drained from within the borders of beautiful Venezuela, but so will die the social programs that Chavez instilled, those that had been used to combat the extreme poverty which exists in the country, those that the governments before Chavez did nothing to prevent. so goes Chavez, so goes a bastion of anti-empire, so goes a man who pushed Chomsky’s work at the United Nations, so goes a man who championed the bloc that would resist the swallowing up of Latin America by the empire. yes, the vultures are hungry, they are perched & ready--- rather than create green alternatives to the reliance on oil, they will suck every last drop & make the world do their bidding, creating a negative media firestorm to shed hate upon a man who can no longer defend himself, just as they will the next who steps up to resist.
