¿Por qué resiste Venezuela?


El 5 de marzo de 2013 se destaparon muchas botellas en Washington, Londres, Madrid y Frankfurt para brindar por el fin de la “pesadilla chavista”. Mientras los cerros de Caracas lloraban la muerte del presidente Hugo Chávez Frías, los centros de poder global celebraban, convencidos que su desaparición física llevaría, inevitablemente, a la fragmentación del campo bolivariano. Insistían en que el cambio que había ocurrido en Venezuela desde 1999, sólo se explicaba por el “caudillismo” de su líder. Pero sin Chávez, todo el andamiaje de la revolución se derrumbaría en cuestión de días y ningún otro dirigente bolivariano podría asumir un liderazgo capaz de dar continuidad al proceso. Sin Chávez, repetían, moría el chavismo. Ignoraban que Chávez pertenece al linaje de los libertadores de América Latina, que en el último siglo ha producido líderes excepcionales como Sandino, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara o Salvador Allende. Como ellos, Chávez hizo suyas las banderas de los próceres de la primera -y frustrada- independencia de la Patria Latinoamericana y las convirtió en un proyecto político de unidad e integración continental cuya punta de lanza es la justicia social y el antiimperialismo.

People of the Hall started to defend myself and ‘Piranha’ was running in the middle of the riot. Then he learned that in the second largest city in Venezuela it stolen to the hair.

Mariana Rodríguez told Globovision that he walked by a popular shopping centre when two women approached him. “I thought they were going to steal my cell phone, because he wore it all the time in hand, but they took a pair of scissors. Not got the opportunity to think, run or anything. When I realized, I had no hair”, he said.

The employee of a shop in the center of Maracaibo was beaten while trying to resist that three ‘Piranha’ was cut her hair on his way home after finishing their working day. «As you might wanted to avoid aggression, but these criminals, these ‘Piranha’, hit it hard», tells a friend in Santa . The assistance of two passers-by avoided major damage.

The thieves of hair tend to act between the 6.00 and the 7.30 hours in the morning and in the afternoon, after the closure of the shops, in the hours when the malls are more deserts.


Even though the authorities have not received any formal complaint, surveillance has been increased in the Centre of the city by the increase of cases, said to the press the Mayor of Maracaibo, Rosales Eveling.

Nicolas Maduro, President of Venezuela, in a recent speech.

Neither the Justice Department nor the Drug Enforcement Agency of United States (DEA for its acronym in English) said Tuesday the information disseminated by the newspaper The Wall Street Journalon research to six officials from the Government of Venezuela suspects of being involved in drug trafficking and money laundering. Either from the Bolivarian Republic there were grandiose reactions. A State of ‘THC Detox Help‘ which runs the risk of becoming a diplomatic earthquake and awaken the Venezuelan wrath, according to the daily, if inquiries culminate with the prosecution of the officers.

Prosecutors in Miami and New York together with a specialized unit of the DEA take more than two years collecting information on the participation of these senior officials in drug trafficking activities. A time in which Venezuela has established itself as one of the “routes preferred for the traffic of drugs from South America to the Caribbean, Central America, United States, West Africa and Europe region“, noted a report by the State Department on the strategy in 2015 international control drugs.

This document points out that the Bolivarian Republic was still “the main drug transit country” in 2014 and remembers the lack of cooperation of the Venezuelan in the fight against drug trafficking authorities. In recent years, Colombian traffickers appear to have moved its centre of operations to Venezuela, due to the pressure from the authorities in Colombia. The sources consulted by The Wall Street Journal are running that the country passed “131 tons of cocaine, nearly half of the amount that produces Colombia” in 2013.

Senior officials in the ‘black list’

In 2014, only participated in the interception of suspicious boats against the ten 2013 – under the bilateral maritime agreement between the two countries reached in 1991.

President Barack Obama was determined last year that “Venezuela had suspended their obligations for the agreements against drug trafficking demonstrably”, recalls the report of the State Department.

Critical chapters in U.S.-Venezuela relations on account of the fight against drug trafficking have been playing since 2008. That year, the U.S. Treasury Department included two senior members of the Government on the ‘black list’ of the assets Control Office abroad (OAFC) for his alleged involvement in drug-trafficking activities: the former Minister of Defense and current Governor of Trujillo, Henry Rangel; the Governor of Guarico, Ramón Emilio Rodríguez Chacín.An exercise that was repeated in 2011, when under the Kingpin Act – which allows OFAC Act on the drug – related financial networks were added the names of the major general Antonio Alcalá cords.

That same year, the United States formally accused the retired general Hugo Armando Carvajal, who led the Venezuelan intelligence until 2011, for alleged drug trafficking. According to the report of the anti-drug unit of the State Department, the arrest and release of Carvajal – which is again among those investigated by U.S. prosecutors and DEA – July 2014, frustrated ‘sweet stage’ who lived the two countries in the field of collaboration against drug trafficking.
