Granda, Colombia, Venezuela

Two important pieces from Venezuelanalysis.com. One is on the state of the commercial deals between Colombia and Venezuela signed during the bizarre July 2004 meeting (discussed in this blog at the time). The other about Chavez’s attempts at diplomacy in the wake of the kidnapping.

My read on this is that it is another gambit aimed at destabilizing Venezuela. I admit that is hardly a searing insight. What it is, though, is a dangerous situation for Venezuela and the precarious progress Venezuelans have fought and died for, to say nothing of the blood Colombians have shed in the US onslaught against their lives. Please follow it carefully.
