There is no change during my one week absence, I was able to watch some news at my hotel room and Hugo Chavez Constitutional Amendment Referendum defeat was big surprise and I was wrong predicting that Hugo Chavez will win the “Yes” vote. The people who voted “No” don’t want him to run for President for the third time will the losers by electing typical politician who will stop Hugo Chavez social reforms, will work to protect the interest of elite class.
Putin party did win the Parliamentary election with huge majority, don’t know the numbers and have no time to find that out by reading one week news archives. I have only today and tomorrow which is Sunday morning again will be leaving.
The most interesting news what US NIE on Iran nuclear program. The reaction from Bush regime is disgraceful who still insists that Iran is the biggest threat to world peace. John Bolton the former UN Ambassador believe that the intelligence agencies has under estimated Iran nuclear program to compensate their report on Iraq WMD. Bush still believe that Iran is dangerous with the knowledge of building developing nuclear weapons. This is really the most stupid statement made by the only super power of the world. What is the Bush and Dick plan for Iran? Do they wanted to brainwash all the Iranian scientists who had the knowledge to build nuclear weapons?
The NIE confirmed what ElBardei said that they don’t have proof of Iran’s secret nuclear program which become problem for the Republican Presidential candidate who wanted to be tougher than Bush on Iran including Democrat Hilary Clinton, she wanted to use limited Nuclear Weapons on Iranian Nuclear facilities to stop the development of nuclear weapons which which they are not building. Saddam Hussein told the world that Iraq does not any Chemical or Nuclear Weapons and he too was telling the truth like Ahmadinejad.
The US if really wanted peace stability in the world than the American politicians have to learn to trust the other governments, stop interfering in their internal affairs, stop the policy of regime change.

King of Spain asked Hugo Chavez to “Shut up” during the summit.
The diplomatic row between Hugo Chavez and Spain intensified yesterday as the Venezuelan president demanded to know the Spanish monarch’s knowledge of a coup that briefly removed the Socialist leader from power.
Mr Chavez, who was in Chile for the Ibero-American summit, claimed that Spain’s ambassador had appeared at Venezuela’s presidential palace during the two-day coup in 2002 to support the interim president Pedro Carmona.
Mr Chavez insisted that such support could only have been sanctioned with the Spanish King’s blessing. His comments followed the public spat in which Spanish King Juan Carlos told Chavez to “shut up” during an increasingly acrimonious summit.
The King’s outburst came moments after the president had called Spain’s former prime minister, Jose Maria Aznar, a “fascist” for backing the coup. At the end of the conference, Mr Chavez asked to what extent Juan Carlos had supported the coup.
“Mr King, did you know about the coup d’etat against Venezuela, against the democratic, legitimate government of Venezuela in 2002?” he said at a press conference yesterday.
“It’s very hard to imagine the Spanish ambassador would have been at the presidential palace supporting the coup-plotters without authorization from his majesty.” “Fascists are not human. A snake is more human,” Mr Chavez said during the conference. Spain’s current socialist prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, asked Mr Chavez to be more diplomatic and show respect for other leaders despite political differences.
“President Hugo Chavez, I think there is an essential principle to dialogue, and that is, to respect and be respected, we should be careful not to fall into insults,” Mr Zapatero said.
Mr Chavez continued to interrupt as Zapatero spoke, although his microphone was switched off.
A frustrated King Juan Carlos, sitting next to Mr Zapatero, leaned toward Mr Chavez and said: “Why don’t you shut up?” The monarch then left the chamber.
“They told me some Spanish officials grabbed him by the arm, because he’s strong and tall. He acted like an angry bull as he stormed out,” Mr Chavez recalled in comments published yesterday by Spain’s El Mundo newspaper.
“I’m no bullfighter, but ole!” he added.
Mr Chavez, who faces violent protests at home against a proposed constitutional reform package that would greatly boost his power, said the incident had been exaggerated by the media.
“I hope this will not damage relations,” Mr Chavez said as he left his Santiago hotel room. “But I think it’s imprudent for a king to shout at a president to shut up.”
King of Spain is also facist like Azner showing no respect for democratically elected popular President Hugo Chavez.

Dick stupidity and ignorance make Hugo Chavez laugh. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez mocked U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney for a recent verbal blunder confusing Venezuela with Peru, saying it shows the United States is governed by a “bunch of ignorant fools.”
|“The vice president of the United States was talking about us, but he made a mistake,” Chavez said, laughing. “Since those who govern the United States are a bunch of ignorant fools… he thinks I’m president of Peru.” “They don’t know where Venezuela is, nor do they know where Peru is,” Chavez told the crowd. Hugo Chavez.
|According to a transcript on the White House Web page, the vice president was asked how concerned he is about Chavez’s influence.”I’m trying to think how to state this diplomatically. Diplomacy is hard sometimes,” Cheney said, drawing laughs from his audience.“He’s a — obviously an individual with his own agenda, and he spends a great deal of his time worrying about us and criticizing the United States. My own personal view is that he does not represent the future of Latin America, and the people of Peru I think deserve better in their leadership.”

Hugo Chavez honoring Che Guevara 40th death anniversary in his very own unique style by giving doctors 60% increase in their salaries.
| Oct. 9 (Bloomberg) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that doctors working for the public health system will get a 60 percent pay raise in honor of Cuban revolutionary hero Ernesto “Che” Guevara, who was a trained physician.Venezuela, the fourth-biggest supplier of crude oil to the United States, will tap increased revenue from oil exports to increase pay for public doctors, Chavez said last night during a ceremony to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Che’s death.
“This is justice for those that work for life and health of the Venezuelan people,” Chavez said at the ceremony in Caracas, according to a statement from the government’s Information Ministry.
Chavez has used his country’s oil income to more than triple public spending over the past four years, increasing the government’s role in the economy and helping spark the fastest inflation in Latin America. Last week, he announced a 40 percent pay raise for teachers.
The 60 percent raise for doctors will take effect Nov. 1.
The Venezuelan president said yesterday he will broadcast his next Sunday television program, called “Alo Presidente,” from Santa Clara, Cuba, the site of a monument honoring Guevara. Source : Chavez, Honoring Che, Gives Venezuela Doctors 60 Percent Raise.
Hugo Chavez is so evil giving big salary raise to teachers and doctors, this will what the radical Christians ignorant Americans will say about this decision. Hugo Chavez revolution should spread all over the world. Chavez the savior of poor. God bless him.

The following article is published by Christian Science Monitor catch my attention for criticizing Hugo Chavez and ex Catholic Bishop Lugo for running for President of Paraguay, protecting the interests of poor people.
|ASUNCIóN, PARAGUAY – Change or death.” That’s the stark campaign slogan of Fernando Lugo in his bid to become Paraguay’s next president.The outspoken populist appeals to the poor – but he also increasingly resembles Latin America’s leading anti-democratic firebrand, Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez.His candidacy is cause for concern that Paraguay’s gradual 18-year move toward democracy may be reversed. The last thing Latin America needs is another populist troublemaker.Already, Paraguay’s democratic progress has taken a few hits under the current government. President Nicanor Duarte Frutos, whose term ends next August, has tried – unsuccessfully so far – to amend the Constitution so he can run for reelection. As his campaign to remain in control becomes more desperate, so have his methods. They have grown increasingly strident and confrontational – common in a region long known for populist politics.
His party, the traditional National Republican Association, or Colorado Party as it is known, has split into three factions, with little likelihood of reconciliation.
That means the opposition is now poised to assume power. As bad as Mr. Duarte may seem, the opposition is worse; as is its leading candidate, Mr. Lugo.
A former priest who became bishop of San Pedro, Lugo has long been involved in politics and is known as an outspoken advocate of a controversial ideology popular in the 1970s and 1980s known as liberation theology. This earned Lugo the title of Paraguay’s “Red Bishop.”
The Catholic Church hierarchy dismissed Lugo from his clerical duties when he announced his candidacy for president, but that didn’t stop him. On the contrary, his removal from the clergy appears to have intensified his anti-democratic stances, which increasingly allies Lugo with Venezuela’s Mr. Chávez and Bolivia’s Evo Morales. On a billboard that rises over Asunción’s main boulevard, for example, the Lugo campaign advertises the slogan, “Change or death,” and brags that their candidate doesn’t consider himself “a slave of the law.” So much for the rule of law.
The opposition faces a dilemma. If it continues to support Lugo, it could win – maybe – but will have to deal with a demagogue who thumbs his nose at the law and could plunge the country into chaos. If it enters the elections divided – already, three parties have split off from the original coalition of 10 – and offers several candidates, it is almost sure to lose. Worse, Lugo could go all the way and become a dictatorial strongman like Chávez.
Though the political class is wary of him, Lugo has broad support among the country’s poor, who are drawn to his populist rhetoric about the evil rich and the need to redistribute wealth to those less fortunate.
Ranting about the rich has broad appeal because Paraguay is a poor country with a high unemployment rate – nearly half the labor force works in agriculture, more than 16 percent of the population is unemployed, and 36 percent of all Paraguayans live below the official poverty line. And while not totally in shambles, its economy is languid, growing at a compounded annual rate of just 1.3 percent per year over the past five years, according to The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal’s 2007 Index of Economic Freedom, which ranks the economy well down the list in terms of openness – 99th out of 157 globally, and 22nd out of 29 in the Americas.
With a weak economy; high levels of government corruption; and a restrictive, highly regulated, labor market – one of the worst in the world – Paraguayan society is ripe for the kind of politics-of-envy message being peddled by Lugo. This is all music to Chávez’s ears.
For now, the likely outcome is far from clear. Lugo’s words and actions have created considerable unease among many even within his own coalition. The ruling party is torn by divisions. There are even proposals afoot to legally block Lugo’s candidacy.
The unease is also spreading to neighboring countries, especially Brazil, which are understandably concerned about having another radical populist in the neighborhood.
Meanwhile, the clock is ticking – not only for Paraguay, but for all of Latin America, which hardly needs another populist strongman to add to the region’s problems.
Carlos Sabino is an adjunct fellow with the Independent Institute, in Oakland, Calif., and a visiting professor and researcher at Francisco Marroquín University in Guatemala. Source : Latin America doesn’t need another radical like Chávez.
Carlos Sabino is biased radical agent of Capitalism, written this article to get recognition and get some monetary gains from US government. Lugo, this idiot Professor admit, has become more popular after being removed from clergy because he wanted to bring positive change in the lives of poor people. The social reforms scared the rich elite class of every country, which they have accumulated by using all legal and illegal means and Catholics have become the protector of rich and power as they are the main contributor to their Churches. These contributions are very important for Catholics to maintain their luxurious life style, Pope wearing designer cloths and shoes, luxury cars, decorating the domes with gold at the expense of poor people oppression.
Jesus Christ, according to Gospel, was Socialists not Capitalist. Jesus Christ lived his whole life without owing any property without accumulating any money, spending whatever he had to feed poor.
The Paraguayan should vote for Lugo, who will bring positive change in the lives of poor, developing close relationship neighboring countries making Latin America region for peace and prosperity. The people like this Professor, who are the protector of rich and powerful, will keep writing against Lugo to keep him out of power because they fear that poor are taking over powers and privileges.

Vladimir Putin showing indications that he might run for Parliament and become Prime Minister. The Russia Presidential elections are scheduled to be held next year, he can’t run for President again because of Constitution restriction of two terms limit. This two term limit is included into Russian Constitution modeled at looking US Constitution Amendment, which is very undemocratic restricting peoples choice if they wanted to elect the President for more than two terms. The Presidential two term limit maybe good for US but this certainly is not good for other countries to include in their Constitution. The good politicians who are honest sincere wanted to bring real change for their countries, must have the option to continue as long as they want, if elected by the people.
Prime Minister of Malaysia Dr. Mahathir Mohammad is an good example of leader who has bring the country into developed nations in just twenty years, he was elected by the popular vote until he decided to retire at the age of 78. Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, had to step down after two term limit than Malaysia would still be third world country. Hugo Chavez is another Head of State who need time to implement his policies which are for the benefit of poor people. Venezuela very correctly is changing their Constitution which also had the two term limit restriction for President.
Vladimir Putin had a very popular support is likely to win the Parliament elections, if he decided to run which is very democratic. There are lots of criticism on BBC and CNN for his decision to become Prime Minister which is biased and is interfering in other countries internal affairs.

The following is the reply to Robert Gates statement calling Hugo Chavez “threat to region stability in El Salvador. The reply come from Venezuela Vice President.
|Responding to US Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who said that Hugo Chavez is a “threat to regional stability,” Venezuelan Vice-President Jorge Rodriguez affirmed that Hugo Chavez is indeed a “tremendous threat” to the “empires of the world,” and assured they would continue to be a “greater threat” as time goes on.“Of course he [Chavez] is a threat to the stability of the empires of the world, for those who consider themselves the world police, for those who think they have a right to invade countries and massively murder the population,” replied the Venezuelan vice-president to a recent statement made by Robert Gates during a visit to El Salvador.
“And we are going to continue becoming a greater danger as the people continue to heed the call to get organized. Without a doubt, we will convert ourselves into a danger for the despots of the world,” Rodriguez continued.
Venezuelan Vice President Jorge Rodriguez reply is good.

The latest news is that Israel is considering to downgrading its diplomatic relationship with Venezuela for having close warm relationship with Iran. The Israeli Ambassador to Venezuela is due to leave his post in next June and the Foreign Ministry has to name his replacement. The Israel Foreign Ministry will send the acting Ambassador downgrading its diplomatic ties with Venezuela. The Israeli government is following the footsteps of Bush regime that anyone who does not agree with their policies of aggression occupation oppression is their enemy. Hugo Chavez also criticized Israel invasion of Lebanon and and attacking Palestinians calling it “Methods of Hitler”. Hugo Chavez believe that Israel are doing what Hitler did killing innocent children and entire families. The Israeli downgrading its diplomatic ties will not really hurt Venezuela and it certainly will not hurt Israel. Hugo Chavez is the most dynamic charismatic leader is going in a direction which if continue will isolate Israel and USA. Hugo Chavez diplomacy is successful with Latin America coming together with close ties with Iran, China, Russia are the clear proof of his strong leadership. Israeli government and Bush regime must understand that nobody is so stupid to hate Americans and Jews, it is their policies which are hated. The Israeli government and Bush regime instead of listening the grievances reject them calling them the “enemy” of Israel and USA, “enemy of Jews”, “antisemite”, people who hate “freedom and democracy”, people who hate “American way of life”, very simple approach instead of looking at them rationally.
The US has become very intolerant country since Bush moved into White House with voices of moderation has gone into background overtaken by religious fundamentalism creating new alliances to support Israel government polices of aggressions and continuing its own polices of aggression and occupations. These policies are the source of problems which both these governments completely ignore and acknowledge. These policies are fueling more hatred and there is no hope for peace in the world. The US is pushing Zionists agenda blocking all the efforts to bring positive change with democracy. The only democracy which they accept the puppets governments endorsing their policies.
Britain and Israel expressed interest on US Campaign of surgical bombing raids on Iran Revolutionary Guards
Really bring smile on my face that Britain, Israel and US governments can be so stupid controlled by mental retards. Go ahead do it. The result will be disaster for Britain, Israel and USA.

The common American must read the following report as the majority of them are duped by CNN and all mainstream print and electronic media that Hugo Chavez is the devil dictator even get is very democratically elected by the Venezuelans in three previous elections. Bush infact is a dictator who was selected President by the Supreme court in 2000 elections. Bush dictator has ruined the US economy with huge deficits trying to win already lost wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, on the other hand Hugo Chavez policies are changing the lives of tens of millions of people in Venezuela as well as the neighboring countries. Venezuela budget has the huge surplus since Hugo Chavez sworn in as the President in 1999. The US latest deficit remember listening on CNN is 9 trillion dollars.

The Che Guevara revolutionary vision is making Latin America countries more united with socialist reforms which started with the dynamic leadership and vision of Hugo Chavez. The Venezuelans make the best choice by electing Hugo Chavez in 1999. His sincere honest efforts are improving the lives of millions in Venezuela and he did end the Cuban isolation which has improved the lives of common people. Cuba economy is growing now Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador has developed strong economic relationship following Hugo Chavez policies. This is the beautiful start and still there are plenty of problems these leaders are facing including including the strong resistance from the corrupt government officials and the corrupt politicians who want this revolution to fail. The Bush regime was quick to realize that Hugo Chavez policies will hurt the big US corporations and their way of life and he tried to topple Hugo Chavez popular government with CIA funded coup with alliance with corrupt politicians. The coup failed and Hugo Chavez was in power within couple of days and since than Hugo Chavez has become the harsh critic of Bush, his government and his policies. Hugo Chavez is kind person who has helped the poor neighboring countries and is providing the subsidies heating fuel for poor US citizens. This is sad that the CNN and whole western print and electronic media keep spreading false propaganda against very popular world leader ignoring all what he is doing to improve the lives of millions.
The following article is interesting.

This is very disappointing news for me that Hugo Chavez is not attending the General Assembly session this year. He speak with Ahmedinejad on phone and congratulated him on his address at Columbia University and criticize the insults he has to face for accepting the University invitation.
Caracas, September 25th, 2007/ The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, confirmed that he will not attend the 62nd UN Annual General Assembly, where he was supposed to give a speech next September 26. He has sent Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Ministry Nicolás Maduro in his place.
The Venezuelan president also mentioned that the UN General Assembly is a useful scenario to unmask the Empire’s hostile attitude in its own “lair” and to directly talk to the U.S. people. He pointed out he will closely follow each speech and that he is in constant touch with Venezuela’s representatives in this event.
Solidarity with President Ahmadineyad:
President Chávez also said that he spoke by phone with the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was attacked with insults by the president of Columbia University, which invited him to give a speech to its students.
“I congratulate him, in the name of the Venezuelan people, before a new aggression of the U.S. empire,” Chavez said.
According to the Bolivarian leader, the Iranian president was the object of an ambush. Likewise, he stated that after participating in the UN General Assembly, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will visit Bolivia in order to endorse a set of energy cooperation agreements with his Bolivian counterpart Evo Morales, and Venezuela in order to strengthen bilateral relations.

The present Bush regime with mainstream media and European countries love to spread false propaganda against Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez accususing them of dictators and rogue nations who hates America for its open democracy. The fact is opposite that Bush regime and its European allies are the most closed minded undiplomatic non tolerant governments who wants all the other countries to adopt their corrupt version of democracy. The democracy and diplomacy are put aside with Bush regime in White House with their agenda of taking control of the world with uniliteral invasion and occupation to protect their way of life and impose their corrupt version of big corporations democracy.
Bush also believe that not talking to Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, Iran and North Korea is some kind of punishment which these countries deserve. The US foreign relations are so screwed up by Bush that it will be exactly same if Hilary Clinton get elected. Hilary Clinton will not talk to the governments white according to them are hostile towards US. Raul Castro speaking to crowd of 100,000 Cubans offered to open talks with new US administration if they give up their arrogance and talk in civilized manner. Hugo Chavez always always said that he wants the better relations with US whoever is in office after Bush.
Cuba celebrated the anniversary of its revolution today without its long time leader. In charge the brother of ailing leader Fidel Castro. And he’s offering a deal, Raul Castro, that is, a deal to the United States, reforms and talks, once the Bush administration he says is out of power.The president was temporarily handing over power, his aide announced. For the first time since 1959, Fidel Castro was not charge of Cuba. The government said only that he had been forced to undergo intestinal surgery. He’s widely believed to suffer from diverticulitis, inflamation of a pouch in the intestine wall.But those who predicted Cuba’s communist system would collapse in his absence were wrong. At a year with Raul Castro at the helm little has changed. Tens of thousands turned out waving their flags for the July 26th celebration. In Fidel’s traditional place, Raul stressed Cuba’s stability.RAUL CASTRO, CUBAN LEADER : These have been difficult months though with the opposite effect expected by our enemies who are hoping for chaos and Cuban socialism to collapse.
R. CASTRO : If the new U.S. authorities would finally put their arrogance aside and decide to talk in a civilized way, it would be a welcome change. If not, we’re ready to continue to confront their policy of hostility, even if it takes another 50 years.
A group of eight students from the United States has graduated from a medical school in Cuba.
The students are from a deprived background and could not afford to train as doctors in the US.
They are among hundreds of students from across America and Africa to be given scholarships by Cuba.
It is illegal for Americans to visit Cuba but an exception was given to this program following a deal between Fidel Castro’s government and members of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington.
One of the students, Evelyn Erickson from New York, says the scholarship was all-inclusive.
“Cuba has given us a full scholarship with free room and board, we get everything from books, even uniforms,” she said.
“But the conditions are that we go back to our communities or wherever we’re needed and we provide health care.
“And that’s what we really want to do so we’re actually looking forward to it.”
Wolf Blitzer called Cuban leaders tyrant ignoring all the good news. Cuba is training hundreds of doctors from around the world with full scholarship to provide cheap medical care for poor. This is very admirable policy of Cuba should and must be appreciated and reported.
Hugo Chavez who is also called dictator is very popular democratically elected beloved President of Venezuela winning thee elections. Hugo Chavez policies which are benefiting the poor are better than US government policies of big corporations protection. Hugo Chavez is facing harsh criticism from rich privileged class backed by CIA and Bush regime.
Hugo Chavez achievements.
The construction of thousands of free medical clinics for the poor.
The institution of educational campaigns that have reportedly made more than one million adult Venezuelans literate.
The enactment of food and housing subsidies.
The government earmarked 44.6% of the 2007 budget for social investment, with 1999-2007 averaging 12.8% of GDP.
US only approve democracy when it is in its own interest. US does not like the democratic government leaders democratically elected in Ecuador, Nicaragua and Bolivia. The other problem with US democracy is the voters keep electing the same two parties candidates from last 100 years without evening thinking intelligently throwing them out of power with electing third parties candidates or independents. The real change will be if US voters reject all the corrupt politicians including Hilary Clinton Rudy Giuliani Mitt Romney and elect Dennis Kucinich who is honest politician for a real change. Vote for any third party Candidate for Senate and House of Representative seat and this will be the real change.

Hugo Chavez news are always interesting and this news was reported yesterday is no exception where he called Honduran Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga “imperial clown” replying to his accusations of increasing authoritarianism. Hugo Chavez statements are always blunt without any diplomacy.
“Another parrot of imperialism appeared, this time dressed as a cardinal. That’s to say, another imperialist clown”.
This Cardinal is considered the moderate, is the most prominent Catholic leaders in Americas and could be the possible Pope. Hugo Chavez also called Venezuelan Catholic leaders and “liars” and “perverts” and advice them to stop interfering in politics. Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga will be another joke if selected next Pope after Benedict which will certainly not help Catholic ideology.
The following is lengthy informative article about Hugo Chavez and Bush regime which analyzes the situation fairly.
Where is Venezuela going? Chavez and the meaning of 21st century socialism.
Hugo Chavez is democratically elected very popular President of Venezuela harshly criticized by US and Western Countries media and Bush regime with false propaganda. Hugo Chavez is doing what US should be doing to change the lives of common poor people. I support Hugo Chavez for all his good efforts to improve the lives of common poor people.

The majority of Americans believe that they are living in democracy and they are better than the rest of the world. They believe it is their right to export their Democracy to the rest of the world. There was too much negative propaganda against Hugo Chavez closing down TV station which sided with CIA to bring his government down which to me is fair decision. The real ugly face of US democracy was exposed to me when I watched documentary “Who Killed The Electric Car”. Before watching this interesting documentary I did not know that there were electric cars because this was never reported on CNN or any other main stream media. CNN give more coverage to all unimportant news like who is the father of Nicole Smith daughter, Britney spears shaving her head, Paris Hilton going to jail drama which to me is waste of time and have no interest in private lives of these celebrities.
The electric car which were build become very popular with people who care about environment and they were very happy to find alternative solution to oil. The demand for electric car was growing fast and quick but unfortunately this was killed by big oil companies, GM, and Bush regime.
“Many of the people who leased the car, including a number of celebrities, said the car drove like a dream.
“…the EV1 was a high performer. It could do a U-turn on a dime; it was incredibly quiet and smooth. And it was fast. I could beat any Porsche off the line at a stoplight. I loved it,” Actress, Alexandra Paul told NOW. ”
The project was dead to protect the Big Corporations interest and Bush regime sided with these corporations because he is in White House to protect the interest of rich and powerful like all the previous Presidents and future Presidents. The Big Corporations are the dictators who decide which products we must use which can bring them more profits.
The following is the link which can provide more information about this sad incident which never was covered by CNN. This is the real crime and ugly face of US democracy.

We need Bart Jones type of honest journalists not the ones who report lies and propaganda on CNN and Fox. Bush regime did bomb Al Jazeera office in Afghanistan and Iraq for broadcasting news which shows the real picture of US invasion atrocities. Bush regime has also closed down Al Jazeera offices in Iraq. This to me is not democratic free speech policy. Bush regime wants all the Middle East to watch US funded TV Al Hurra which broadcast US propaganda.
