Comprehensive Venezuela News Source

Read Venezuela Today. From their header:
Fact: In the 1999 Vargas disaster, at the request of the Venezuelan government and coordinated by the Venezuelan military, the U.S. rushed two navy vessels with hundreds of members of the Army's Corp of Engineers with military bridges, tents, and water treatment and desalination plants. With one of the ships at sea and the other about to sail, Hugo Chávez refused the aid offer following Fidel Castro's advice. The aborted operation cost the U.S. $25 million.
Venezuela Today has a comprehensive listing of Venezuelan and other news and opinion sources. Content ranges from video to editorials tonewspaperss to blogs. They include an extensive listing of pro-Chavez (Bolivarian) sources. (Hat tip to and The Devils Excrement.)
