The Cold War Between Chavez and the U.S.

Fri, 12 May 2006 13:24:03 -0600

Both trends are accelerating, so cross currents of the two forces is why events seem so momentous right now. It's like the world is being remade. An energy knife is going down the center of South America while the states on the edges are breaking off and signing trade pacts with the U.S.

The irony is - Chavez wants a stronger state; Bush wants a stronger independent citizenry. Yet Bush negotiates with states to get that citizen empowerment while Chavez makes populist appeals to citizens over the heads of their governments to ultimately get his own personal power.
