    Actions. That’s way better than saying that Haiti made a pact with the devil. Or blaming the United States for causing the earthquake with a super secret weapon in order to create havoc so that Bill Clinton and George W Bush can personally enrich themselves (as Chavez himself said). Better to act than to MSU. Kudos to Venezuela for their help.

      I still am waiting for anyone to come up with a legitimate explanation of why the U.S. “left” believes Chavez ever said anything about a “super-secret weapon”. As best anyone can tell, the story originated with a Russian newspaper (of the World Weekly News variety) and — given the extremely reactionary, provincial nature of U.S. political reporting (even from the so-called “progressives”) you guys are running with it. Not even the extreme right-wing end of the Latin American press has bought this, and I wouldn’t expect them to.
