Suresh, this is complete bullshit. For the past 2 years at least you 
have posted nothing here except "anti-imperialist" defenses of Qaddafi 
and al-Assad. Aren't you from India? Why so little interest in your own 
country?

Don't expect me to be the fountainhead of information on Venezuela. This 
list has many people far more familiar with Venezuela than me, starting 
with Fred Fuentes.

I write about what matters to me. I used to get complaints because I 
wrote movie reviews. The idea that I am to be condemned because I FAIL 
to write about some topic is absurd.

Go ahead and write something yourself.
