A “perfect” excuse to crush the opposition in Caracastan?

maduro big brother

Round 'em up Saddamito.  Move 'em on, head  'em up, move 'em out.... straight into pens and the slaughterhouse.  You have the perfect excuse now, and your bosses in Havana will give you great instructions on how to pull it off.  Good thing you've gone there, to perform proskynesis in the throne room and seek advice.

Too bad you don't know English, Saddamito.   You would get such a kick out of this perfect song for handling opponents, from half a century ago, into which you can easily insert your King's name:

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Keep movin', movin', movin',
Though they're disapprovin',
Keep them doggies movin' Rauuul!
Don't try to understand 'em,
Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
Soon we'll be living high and wide...

Move 'em on, head 'em up,
Head 'em up, move 'em out,
Move 'em on, head 'em out Rauuuuul!
Set 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rauuuuuul!

Yee-hah!  Snap!  Crack that whip.

Yeah, Madurito.  HERE is the finest rendition of that song, ever... if you care to see some high falutin' Art, with a capital "A"....

From the Washington Post:

Venezuela vice president says plot uncovered, travels to Cuba to see Hugo Chavez

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela’s vice president said Wednesday that the government has uncovered a plot to attack him or another senior leader of President Hugo Chavez’s party.

The purported plot involved “groups that have infiltrated the country,” Vice President Nicolas Maduro said in a speech to government supporters. He added that the authorities believe the unidentified groups intended to attack him or National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, and then “try to blame one or the other.”

After announcing the alleged plot, Maduro traveled to Cuba to see the ailing Chavez, who underwent cancer surgery more than six weeks ago. Cuban state television showed Maduro arriving in Havana on Wednesday night and being greeted by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez.

In a speech to supporters in Caracas on Wednesday afternoon, Maduro didn’t provide any evidence of the plot or say what sort of attacks the authorities believed to have been planned. The vice president also didn’t mention any arrests, but said: “Don’t be surprised by the actions that will be taken in the coming days.”

A large contingent of police and troops with rifles stood guard while Maduro spoke at an outdoor rally.
