A coup can be a coup without troops and guns.
Ever heard of a soft coup?
That hat several faces in itself.
And maybe Venezuela now added a new face to it.
The Netherlands had an ultra-soft-coup.
Fortuyn got killed, Herben (a fan plane spotter) took his place, Lockheed sold Joint Strike Fighters, the secret service got 're-organized' and rolled out the surveillance agenda... And that's only the start... We are still in the middle of that shit. Still paying for the crappy JSF, still more surveillance, more BS lobby crap.
