Counter-Coup-This wasn't a good weekend to have a media brownout- Chavez got placed under house arrest and a new government installed, then had loyal members of the military and civilians stage a counter-coup, putting Chavez back in power. Chavez is talking sweet, but he talked sweet after a near-coup in February, too. Let's see how long he scabbards his sword. The nearest comparison that comes to mind is 1991 USSR, where Gorby was under house arrest in the Crimea (IIRC) then Yeltsin staged a counter-coup. However, Boris came out in power at the end, not Gorby.
