Venezuela Army Issues Assurances about Stability
A follow-up to my previous post on Venezuela via the BBC: Venezuela ‘is calm’ after Hugo Chavez cancer surgery
Venezuela’s army has dismissed concerns about political instability in the country after President Hugo Chavez’s admission that he had cancer surgery.
"The country is calm," the army chief, Gen Henry Rangel Silva, said.
It strikes me as likely that the country is, in fact, calm and that at the moment instability is not a threat.
Still, it I never a good thing when the head of the army has to issue assurances about domestic tranquility.
