Chavez to seize homes and hotels for the poor on idyllic Los Roques

Just to clarify the terms many use to describe world leaders:

  • Tyrant: Leader, democratically elected or otherwise, whose policies clash with the interests of US multinationals. Hugo Chavez is often described as a tyrant...
  • Maverick: democratically elected leader whose policies clash with the interests of US multinationals. Allende was a maverick....
  • Democratic leader: Tyrant, whose party may well have won staged elections, but whose policies are dictated by foreign multinationals, e.g. Our enlightened media outlets call the new regimes in Iraq and Libya "democratic"...
  • Democracy: Complete submission to the diktats of transnational corporations.
