The act of cowardice to have silenced a warrior who fought for his land
is despicable.The uncompromising stance of the leaders who in their
pursuit of retrieving their home turf for the betterment of their men
carries a heavy price. Castro, had a close shave from CIA on
innumerable occasions. The apprehension over the ailement suffered by
Chavez cannot altogether be dismissed. Imperialism is less tolerant and
rather harsh towards those leaders who challenge their diktats.
