Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dead, VP says

Published March 05, 2013

| Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela Venezuela's vice president announced that President Hugo Chavez died on Tuesday, ending 14 years of rule by the firebrand socialist but leaving his party firmly in control of the nation.

Vice President Nicolas Maduro said that Chavez died "after battling a tough illness for nearly two years."

The death apparently sets up a presidential election to replace Chavez, whose illness prevented him from taking the oath of office for the term to which he was re-elected last year.

Under the constitution, the head of Congress, Diosdado Cabello, would assume the interim presidency.

The announcement came just hours after Maduro announced the government had expelled two U.S. diplomats from the country.

Maduro also said "we have no doubt" that Chavez's cancer, which was first diagnosed in June 2011, was induced by foul play by "the historical enemies of our homeland."

He compared the situation to the death of the Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, claiming Arafat was "inoculated with an illness."

Chavez's inner circle has long claimed the United States was behind a failed 2002 attempt to overthrow him, and he has frequently played the anti-American card to stir up support. Venezuela has been without a U.S. ambassador since July 2010.

Maduro is Chavez's self-anointed successor and has been taking on a larger role since the socialist leader urged Venezuelans to choose him as president before disappearing in early December to undergo a fourth round of cancer surgery in Cuba.

Venezuela's Constitution calls for snap presidential elections to be held if Chavez dies, and some analysts wondered whether Maduro's suggesting the country was under attack by U.S. subterfuge might not be an excuse to delay the election and tighten his grip on power.

The government announced late Monday that Chavez's condition was "very delicate" due to a "new, severe" respiratory infection threw an already anxious nation into even greater uncertainty

"We don't know if he's alive or if he's dead, because they are manipulating the public," Antonio Perez, a retired 60-year-old public servant, said of the government. "Everyone want to just see the president to know if it's true that he's still with us."

Supporters of the 58-year-old president prayed for Chavez on Tuesday at a chapel outside the military hospital where the government says he has been since Feb. 18.

Maduro aired his claim of an alleged attempt to destabilize "Venezuelan society" and the "political system constructed in recent years" before the nation's high command, and the governors of 20 of 23 states loyal to President Chavez, half of them former military officers.

He accused U.S. Embassy's Air Force attache Col. David Delmonaco of spying on Venezuela's military and seeking to involve officers in "destabilizing projects." Maduro gave Delmonaco 24 hours to leave, and U.S. officials said he had already departed the country.

Later Tuesday, Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said a second U.S. Air Force attache was being expelled, also for alleged espionage.

"Let's remember that active participation of the United States in the fascist coup of 2002," Jaua said.

Chavez had neither been seen nor heard from, except for photos released in mid-February, since submitting to a fourth round of surgery in Cuba on Dec. 11 for an unspecified cancer in the pelvic area. It was first diagnosed in June 2011.

The government said Chavez returned home on Feb. 18 and has been confined to Caracas' military hospital ever since.

Maduro said Tuesday that the government was "on the trail of other elements that figure in this entire venomous scenario and are seeking to stir up trouble."

The man Chavez defeated in Oct. 7 presidential elections, the youthful Miranda state Gov. Henrique Capriles, would be expected to represent the opposition in any new elections.

Maduro repeated government claims that Capriles met in the United States over the weekend with right-wing U.S. conspirators and was planning to meet over the weekend with Roberta Jacobsen, assistant U.S. secretary of state for the hemisphere.

One provocateur on state TV even accused the Capriles family of buying a New York City apartment with stolen funds.

Capriles responded via Twitter Tuesday by calling Maduro a liar.

"Lie after lie in every speech," he said.

According to Venezuela's Constitution, elections were to be called if the president could not be sworn in on Jan. 10, but a Supreme Court packed with Chavez loyalists said that wasn't necessary.

The campaigning, though undeclared, has nevertheless already begun. Maduro has frequently commandeered all broadcast channels, Chavez-style, to tout the "revolution" and vilify the opposition.

Chavez has run Venezuela for more than 14 years as a virtual one-man show, gradually placing all state institutions under his personal control. But the former army paratroop commander, who rose to fame by launching a failed 1992 coup, never groomed a successor with his same kind of force of personality.

Maduro said last week that the president had begun receiving chemotherapy around the end of January.

Doctors have said such therapy is not necessarily to beat Chavez's cancer into remission, but could have been palliative, to extend Chavez's life and ease his suffering.

Dr. Carlos Castro, scientific director of the Colombian League Against Cancer, said "it's difficult to predict" when Chavez might die, but he believes "it's a matter of days."

Castro said Chavez could face further respiratory complications if he receives more intense chemotherapy treatment.

If the president's medical team "gives him strong chemotherapy again, then it would not be surprising if some infections reappear," Castro said in a telephone interview.

While in Cuba, Chavez suffered a severe respiratory infection in late December that nearly killed him, Maduro said last week. A tracheal tube was inserted then, and government officials have said his breathing remained labored.

Libardo Rodriguez, a 60-year-old orange juice vendor, said he was very worried after Monday evening's announcement and the government should provide more information about Chavez.

"We are worried because he does not appear. The truth is that I don't know what's happening," said Rodriguez, who identified himself as a Chavez supporter.

"There are many rumors and nobody knows who to believe," he said. "We hope he's alive."

It's possible he's been dead for several months, and those in charge in Venezuela decided not to let it become public knowledge.

Maybe Ozzie Guillen will run. He'd make a great unpredictable leader of a volatile Latin American country.

You are pretty happy that another people's president has been killed by corporate interests but try to understand that it's the same corporate powers that are turning this into a third world country and probably stealing you pensions.

Sheep, sheep here are a grazing.

Chavez is dead.
He was a ruler of a country and one that oppressed people so no, I am not a supporter of Chavez, his governement.
I am not a supporter of his pro views with Iran, etc.

Sean Penn, like most celebrities and even those in Country Music , overstep themselves in things which they know nothing about.
Most entertainers barely made it to 12th grade and many did not graduate.
I trust entertainers viewpoints on a disease, illness for they mostly support things like this which they have family/friends dealing with.

Chavez, his thing was that he did not side with the USA. He was vocal about it. He knocked the USA.
No, I do not like the man and his governmnet.

Sheep, sheep, we really cannot knock Chavez, like the Right and their sheep would like to, because on the other hand, The USA fully supports, aids, sends US job via American companies to China.
China is a Communist country. China is very wrong , has serious human rights' abuse.
China deals gleefully and gladly with Iran.

Chavez=bad.
China=good.
Cuba and the Castros' = bad.
Saudi Arabia and other Mid East countries =good.
WTH?!?!
Does this make any sense.
Only in America does this make sense.

We love us some China.
Wait, Saudi Arabia and many other nations are human rights suppressors, sponsors terrioism and we luv us some Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and many more.

Explain.

You cannot.

Sheep, sheep keep on keep on grazing. Eating that bullshet pie from the Right, Left too and our beloved government.

Very well stated Sgirl and I agree with you completely. There is a book entitled "Hatred's Kingdom," that goes into great detail concerning Saudi Arabia's duplicity with concerns to terrorism and individual rights. China's record is equally disturbing in its oppression of its own people and those of Tibet. Forced sterilization of Tibetan women and even infanticide are well documented in several published writings as well. Divestment is one tool that needs to be considered in dealing with these oppressive regimes.

Hugo Chavez was a fascist thug who oppressed his people and created a cult of personality around his rule. His brand of socialism ruined the Venezuelan economy and only its oil has sustained it at all. Meanwhile its export to countries like Bolivia have utterly devastated them. He shut down opposition media and his jackbooted brownshirts intimidated his political opponents.

He made common cause with every evil regime in the world and his regime was classically anti-semetic. He actually had a lot in common with Hitler. His passing can only mean the possibility of a better future for the people of Venezuela. The fact that imbeciles like Oliver Stone and Sean Penn think he was a good man is just astounding, even for them. Apparently anyone who opposes the country they hate which made them enormously wealthy is good by definition.

I have to wonder if Stone and Penn's opinions of Chavez aren't shaped a bit by the fact that they actually met and spent time with Chavez. As well as spent some time in Venezuela. Experiences I suspect no one on this website can point to. I'm just wondering is all....

You throw the word evil around pretty wrecklessly. Have you thought about what has been happening in Iraq and Afcanastan for over a decade? How would you rate that on your morality scale?

You didn't answer my question. Or are you just shouting "it's a conspiracy" from the rooftops to see who listens with no real clue about whether it is true or not like so many Chavez "allies" are doing?
