"They regretted the move, he says. Speaking about a coup attempt
against Mr. Chávez the year before, Mr. González pointed out that Mr.

Bollocks. To read this sentence you'd think a "counter-coup" had happened, when 
it was nothing of the sort. The military (I don't believe it's accurate to say 
"generals," but I'll leave that aside) played a role in overthrowing the coup, 
but without the masses, the attempt to reinstate Chavez to power would never 
have even started, much less have been successful.
