Darrel asked:

Could you please elaborate on what you mean by a "creeping coup"?  Many of
us are trying to follow events and developments in Venezuela, so you can't
just leave us hanging on that comment! Enlightenment would be much
Sorry, Darrel. I guess I'm just being a tease. I can't say that I 
have inside or specific knowledge about an impending coup. (If I did, 
I would sound the tocsin immediately.) Rather, I was trying to remind 
folks, in the midst of concerns about specific measures being 
undertaken, about what the principal contradiction is. As it happens, 
I do tend to share Muller Rojas' comments about the Disciplinary 
Committee (as well as earlier ones he made about 'scorpions' in the military).
