Chavez, World’s Eminent Economical Danger
Some people act without having the most minimal respect for
others. The desire of power could blind some world leaders. We need to take a
closer look to the Venezuelan leader if we want a better place to live for our
children. Chavez had decided to become a dominant leader in his region and, in
the process he is hurting the economies of other countries, and the worst thing
of all, he thinks he is right!
There have been complaints from countries like Mexico that
Hugo Chavez has decided to disestablish the region. Some people believe that
this Venezuelan leader is behind the recent protests headed by educators
claiming unfair legislations to the Mexican government. Mexico is too close to
the United States and these actions could pollute our country. He could plant a
contagious instability virus to democratic governments of the region and it will
create worries from governments like the US.
The nature of countries like Mexico is to just let things
happen. There is a known pacifist political culture in Mexico because it depends
a little too much from the United States actions. It is imperative no to let
other countries influence our political system and it seems like the intention
of Hugo Chavez is just that.
We do not need another Fidel Castro close to us at this
time. It seems like Hugo wants to take advantage of the opportunity to influence
others with the oil instability problem knowing that his country is one of the
region’s big producers of it. He makes most of his external political
decisions in is desire to acquire more power and having as one of his objectives
the instability of the US economy. He has threatened the United States with not
selling oil to this country which hurts the region due to its monetary influence
and external commerce even if he does not take any action.
In his affords to acquire more power and influence the
region, Hugo has decided to get closer to Russia and, that by itself, generates
distrust and uneasiness in the region. The desire to militarize his country is
by itself a treat to the United States which needs to act as soon as possible
and try to make a stop to Chavez’s wish to drown the United States in to an
economical and political disaster.
His supporters believe in the balance of powers in the
region which could happen if Chavez follows the economical production and
industrialization path but, it seems like he has decided to force others to
think the way he wants them to think. They also think that the correct way of
proceeding is to try to unify Latin-American but, it should not be done by
force. While in the United States we are paying more attention to the war in
Iraq and other terrorist treats, we are leaving Venezuela unattended.
The idea is not to escalate our differences with Chavez
(not the Venezuelans) to the military level but to try to either get closer or
stop him using political tactics of persuasion to integrate Venezuela to our
region. Even though it is true that we should not get in conflict with others
that do not think like us just for that reason, we can not let others influence
our economies for the bad knowingly of their intention. The US can only take so
much and it is important for him to know.
