Hugo Chavez was not the man obsessed by the thought he was being followed and watched, that’s what the propaganda tried to make him look like. He was a politician who faced the reality and knew how hated he was in Washington for opposing the United States on all political or economic issues. He treated seriously the threats coming from presidents Bush and Obama, the State Department and the Pentagon. He knew well the Western special services had a diverse arsenal of means to physically liquidate people…
Fidel Castro shared his own experience, there had been over 600 assassination attempts to kill him committed by the CIA and US military intelligence. Even a limited number of documents declassified prove the special services went to any length, including snipers and poison, to do the job. Fidel accused him of being carefree and told him to watch around. He said new technology appeared, it was not safe to take the food one was offered. He told Chavez: «Chávez take care. These people [the Americans] have developed technology. You are very careless. Take care what you eat, what they give you to eat… a little needle and they inject you with I don’t know what». The President and the security service were concerned about massive Western propaganda than demonized Chavez, presenting him as a threat to “free world”, religion, private property and traditional family values. Some people subject to systematic emotional effect become prone to committing terrorist acts. According to statistics, there had been dozens of assassination attempts against Chavez committed by deranged people coming armed to take part in meetings and demonstrations. Some law enforcement personnel fell victim to such impact. In February 2008 some National Guard officers were arrested accused of taking part in an assassination attempt. In September 2008 a group of servicemen was detained while preparing an attack with the use of grenade launchers against Air Force 1.
The US special services made the first attempts to have it over and done with Chavez in the days of the 1998 presidential campaign. A group of professional hitmen, hired by the CIA in Columbia and the Dominican Republic, followed the candidate during his campaign in out-of-the-way places of Venezuela. Snipers lying in ambush were seen near the places where the President made public speeches. After that, hunting terrorists trying to accomplish the mission to kill Chavez became a daily routine for Bolivarian security services. In May 2009 Frederic Laurent Bouquet, a Frenchman, and three Dominicans were detained. There were sniper rifles, machine guns, grenades and a kilogram of explosives found in the apartment. The group was tasked with Chavez assassination, According to Venezuelan Internal Affairs Minister Tarek El – Aissami, Bouquet was a military on active service in the armed forces of one of European countries. According to Internet leaks, the US services arranged to send the French military intelligence officer to Venezuela.
The victory of Chavez at the 2012 presidential election was inevitable. Accordingly, in the period 2009-beginning of 2010 the mission of eliminating Chavez was on the US intelligence community’s priority list. The traditional methods, for instance, murders committed by deranged persons, aircraft crashes and the like, were off the table. Using well known poisons were out of the question too. There had been too many cases the Latin American leaders were neutralized this way. A bullet, an aircraft crash or poison would indicate who stood behind the action.
So, contamination leading to an incurable decease was chosen as the way to do the job. It was technically possible. José Vicente Rangel wrote in the article Cancer Inoculated published in the 03.17.13 edition of Ultimas Noticias newspaper that the experiments on creating cancerous growth had been conducted in the US for no less that forty years. The laboratories situated in Fort Detrick, Maryland, conduct clandestine research on biological arms; the National Cancer Institute is situated there too. The Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research functioning under the CIA and the Pentagon supervision is an example. As the Internet sources report, a special virus cancer program has been successfully fulfilled there. The cancer virus gets into blood and lymph. Access to DNA makes the virus personalized and more effective. It brings to mind a WikiLeaks post –the document with State Department instructions to the US embassy in Paraguay to stealthily get DNA of the four candidates for presidency. It mentioned all four on purpose to cover the one who was of real interest – the left wing forces candidate Fernando Lugo, a potential ally of Hugo Chavez, who supported the idea of creating “an axis of populist states” on the continent. Two years after the election, Lugo fell ill of lymphatic cancer, a less dangerous form of the decease. He had to go for cure to Brazil, while Vice-President Federico Franco, the favorite son of the CIA and the State Department, ruled the country.
The Latin American cancer epidemic spread around striking left-wing presidents, the fact couldn’t go unnoticed. Fernando Lugo, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, Dilma Rouseff, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner were given this diagnosis –they received the Black Spot, the warning that it is not safe to oppose the US interests on the international scene. The death of Hugo Chavez demonstrated the implications that may follow. For someone who is not convinced the US is involved in cleansing trying to get rid of unfriendly leaders, suffice it to recall the fate of many influential politicians in many regions of strategic importance. The punitive actions are not over. They swoop on Syria, Iran and Pakistan are next. Then it’ll be the turn of BRICS members, the US will do its best to prevent it from becoming an international powerful force of the XXI century.
Chavez warned about it. He always called a spade a spade. For him, the United States was “an evil empire”, an aggressor, a terrorist state constantly waging wars to conquer the territories rich in resources… He called upon his colleagues in Latin America and the Caribbean basin to create alliances with teeth to counter the US policy. He paid dearly for it. The leadership of Venezuela and the leading Latin America leaders, who were friendly with Chavez, don’t believe he died for natural causes. The guesses it was a special operation are voiced more and more often. On the day of Chavez’s death, Vice President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, said in an address to the nation that “there’s no doubt that Commandante Chavez’s health came under attack by the enemy.” He said there was solid ground for launching an investigation. According to him, “We have not a single doubt and at the proper moment we will convene a medical board to confirm that Chavez was attacked.” He linked Chavez’s case with that of Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat, whose death, Maduro said, was caused by poisoning by the Israelis. According to the findings of laboratory research conducted at the Institute de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, Arafat was poisoned by polonium – 210. Nicolas Maduro said Chavez was taken tissue samples to make a diagnosis. The Patient’s name undisclosed, the samples were sent to Brazil, China, Russia and even the USA. The reply was the same, the cancer cells have special features, like unusual intensiveness of propagation and multiplication never encountered before in medical practice.
According to Maduro, a special investigation commission tasked to comprehensively review the details of Chavez demise will be created after the election on April 14. The news came the Bolivarian government plans to pay a million dollars reward to those who will help to make precise the circumstances and concrete perpetrators of the crime – the murder of President Chavez.
