Fuel Will Be The Trigger

Sweet :D International capital finally getting put in its place.

Will this good example start off the United States' ultimate fear of a domino effect. While the US is bogged down in debt and in Iraq the rest of the world can start to recover from their meddling.

I'm surprised there's so much concern about Iran when Venuzuela and Bolivia have been merrily shoving two fingers up at Uncle Sam for a while......I know someone had a go at Chavez a while ago, but I'm surprised there haven't been any "Contra" movements or "coups"

In a sense US and UK consumption has lined the pockets of many nations so it is hard for them to complain that we have bought so much from them. If our former colony cuts back on consumption other countries will export less which means less money for them to spend on their own tat. The US and UK debt is someone else's credit. The sad thing is that many of the Mullah ruled nations have not been quick to spread the wealth. This is why Saudi has a volatile situation. The Sheiks live like Shieks and the majority of the people are in abject poverty. The US and UK would like to meddle and see democracy in these countries so that the wealth is more evenly spread and trade is enhanced.

South America is broadly similar to the middle east. Wealth concentrated in very few hands. That is why they have a tradition of revolutions. Columbia has benfited from our former colony's demand for Coca tree derivatives. Hard fro them to complain of meddling either as they have become wealthy on demand for the "products."

Unlikely to be a home-grown uprising, given Chavez's popularity. And little chance of a US-backed coup d'etat given that the security services are still smarting from the last Contra scandal.

Having said that, Chavez has gone on record to say that he expects some sort of US intervention and is arming accordingly. The comparison (by Rumsfeld?) with Hitler was the starting pistol.

The US and the UK care as much about democracy in the middle east and Latin America as they do about democracy in Florida and Tower Hamlets. So far as our rulers are concerned the important thing is that these countries must:

* provide cheap raw materials for international companies

* provide cheap labour for international companies

* provide open markets for consumption of foreign goods and services

They must not:

* implement any form of protectionism that allows development of national industries that would threaten the competetiveness of multi-national corporations

* develop any form of genuinely participatory democracy to the benefit of the local population that would serve as a dangerous example to people in other countries

Any moves towards self empowerment, nationalised health, education, etc. are easily labelled as 'Marxist' or 'communist'. The US has constantly, both overtly and covertly, funded and supported the overthrow of democratic governments by dictators.
