RE Not An Outlaw Here (NOW, August 4-10).

Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, recently kicked the Drug
Enforcement Administration out of Venezuela, saying "the DEA's war on
drugs has nothing to do with actually shutting down the business, but
is rather part of a strategy of political intervention in Latin
American affairs."

It is clear that the DEA vendetta regarding Marc Emery is also a
political intervention. If Venezuelans can have a government that
looks after their sovereignty, why are we in Canada stuck with
politicians who so much enjoy the flavour of George Bush's bathwater?
