Despite the numbers, some Chileans are almost as obsessed with personal (in)security as Argentines, even though Chile has a professional police force.

Venezuela has twice the murder rate of Brazil????

Jesus......

There were similar numbers for El Salvador and Nicaragua in the 1980's, and what was the common factor with Venezuela today? That's right, Charlie Indigo Alpha. Venezuela has oil, and a government that does not kiss Uncle Sam's butt. Therefore, regime change must follow. The first step is to destabilize society.

Surely I'm not the only one here who knows what they teach at the School of the Americas.

There must be some people surprised in this forum, of the second place of CUBA as well of the 4th place in the region regarding to HDI.

Yeah right. let's just remember that the source of those numbers are the governments, and in the case of Cuba, no one can fly there and audit/validate their stats.

Venezuela has been begging the US to buy its oil, and has been frittering away its petroleum on unsustainable giveaways, including gasoline that costs just a few cents a gallon domestically. Venezuela also provides oil at giveaway prices to Cuba.

The CIA is hardly responsible for http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2013/01/28/130128fa_fact_anderson?currentPage=all and http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/culture/2013/10/the-real-tower-of-david.html

Note please that your statement and mine are not mutually exclusive. Maduro is an idiot, and Chavez wasn't that much smarter. There are no good guys in this one.

Be thankful that in Argentina we have a Presidenta who at least means well, however much we may disagree on her methods of attempting to translate those good intentions into reality.

I will never be thankful for the disaster we call Argentine politicians. I guess the last honest politician turned out the lights somewhere in the 1920s, and ms. Kirchner surely means well for her Swiss bank account(s).
