I find myself, oddly, agreeign with Joaquín on one important point: we really
don't have the information to know both the content of this strike and exactly
what the Venezuelan gov't are up to vis-a-vis it's agreement with the
Ecuadorean gov't. I want to wait some before making big judgements.

However, I think rrubinelli clearly is pointing out all the issues as socialists
that we need to look at including the criteria...for, as he puts it: "Which side
are you one?".

I for one, am open to the idea of a clearly contridictory situation where the
Venezeulans play a generally positive role in many questions, but are totally
caught up in their 'regional' solution to counter-act impirialism. Hell, the
Cubans have been totally cuaght up with this contridiction for a long time
(Mexico, Peru, etc).
