More precisely, Chavez is a would-be Musharaff with large oil revenues — for now.
I guess this will be as close as it gets. As I mentioned in a previous post, it is interesting while the NeoCrybabies take a stick to Chavez any chance they get, they are absolutely silent on Musharaff. I think the message is clear, denying citizens the rights of assembly and free speech is acceptable, but democratizing the market is not. We will accept tyrants who leave cowboy style capitalism intact, but villainies Democratically elected leaders who try to pull in the reigns of disaster capitalism.
