Venezuela raises oil drilling tax
Watching the bold actions of Venezuela, and its powerful president Hugo Chavez, is making me rethink my position in Africa. Clearly "third world countries" have greater authority over US companies and their former colonizers than many believed possible. With strong leadership, a country's economic and political power can be turned around at a astonishing pace. Our focus has to be on replacing the stagnant leadership in Africa, for true change to take place. This is the 1st order of business these dinosaurs and European puppets have to go.
This is an Awesome Development. I am glad that this is happening. Finally someone standing up against the West. This is real revolution right here.
It's nice to see that Hugo Chavez is making his socialist agenda felt instead of using his power and resources to gain further wealth solely for the purpose of raping his citizens and country for all he can take. It's true that other countries can do the same if they would just take a stand against western influences. It starts with resources and the leadership that controls it. Unfortunately, there are too many power/ money hungry leaders and puppet leaders that control a lot of the resources and make deals that are detrimental to the country and the citizens in it. It's good to see that South America is taking a stand even at recent months trade talks in which "president" bush was greeted by a country of fed-up citizens and some uninterested leaders. It's a shame that the U.S. citizens don't have the backbone to do the same.
Please listen Africa!
