The Economist Increases its Smear Campaign Against Venezuela by Making up a Venezuelan Military Intervention in Bolivia

July 17th 2009, by Press Office - Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the United Kingdom

As part of its smear campaign against Venezuela, the British magazine The Economist published an article about the political situation in Bolivia titled “The Permanent Campaign” (July 18 – 24 2009, page 51), which states that “Venezuelan troops helped quell a rebellion centered on the airport at Santa Cruz in the east in 2007”.

It is well known, however, that Venezuelan soldiers have never participated in any type of operation against Bolivian civilians. This false accusation made up by The Economist has also been repeated by the fascist opposition of Santa Cruz.
