Ike Replay

It seems that, just as the Dulles brothers' alternative bouts of sanctimoniousness and desire to help multinational businesses maintain a foothold in various countries, drove Nassar, Castro, et al., straight into the arms of the Soviets (with, in the case of Nassar, consequences in terms of the polarization of the ME that last to this day), our current "leadership" has so peeved Chavez (if you deny that this dynamic can happen -- look at the standard narrative regarding the neo-cons coming from the left for another example) he's turning into the Castro redux we've feared he would -- IOW, our "leadership" as in so many other cases, has, by fearing a monster, created one (cf. Nietzsche).

But at least Eisenhower himself realized how bad things would get if certain people who allowed their greed to blind them would get too powerful. With Bush, it's a case of the blind leading the blind.
