The Best Defense is a Good Offense

Since President Chavez got to power, about seven years ago, he has always been in the offense. This strategy has paid its dividends. There is virtually no Venezuelan
institution Chavez doesn’t control.

And what works at home, he seems to think, also works abroad. He has had feuds with Colombia, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago and the US, and so far, they have all resulted in more territory for the revolution.

This explains his aggressive stance against Mexico. The best defense is a good offense and besides, President Fox’s party looks beatable by the Partido de la Revolución Democrática (PRD) candidate Manuel Lopez Obrador.

If Lopez Obrador wins the presidential race they will soon reinstate Ambassadors and celebrate a new alliance.
