Venezuelans march against Israeli agression 

Today there was a well attended march in Caracas against the Israeli attacks on Lebanon.

Venezuela can be proud not to have a government that backs these kind of brutal attacks against civilians in a neighboring democracy. Not all that long ago the "Cedar revolution" was all the wage - some right wing blogs even making it their blogs calling card. But of course, towing the U.S./Israeli line or bending to their will trumps democracy - as Lebanon and the Palistinians are finding out the hard way.

What we are seeing here is a clear manifestation of the old addage "might makes right". And until there are other nations that can rival the thugish superpowers ruling the roost now we are likely to see more of this. Thats the sad reality of the situation.
