Chavez thinks he's Caesar-In Venezuela, millitary officers are calling for the removal of President Hugo Chavez amid street protests. Chavez has reworked the Venezuelan constitution since getting elected in 1998 to give him near-dictatorial powers. He has lost popular support as his Peronista act has worn thin. Two officers, Air Force Colonel Pedro Soto and National Guard Captain Pedro Flores blasted their commander in chief this week. As a major oil exporter, Venezuela's more important that you'd first think. Keep an eye on this one. If these two officers aren't punished, then we could be looking at the opening episode of ABC's Monday Night Revolution- "They're at the palace gates.... It's a Torchdown!! That does it for the Chavez regime, as he sneaks onto a plane to Havana. Turn out the lights, the party's over. What about next week, Dennis?" "Next week on Monday Night Revolution, we'll be watching ZANU and veteran QB Bobby Mugabe in a do-or-die game against the people of Zimbabwe. Should be a barn-burner, Al."
