Let's make things clear: are you saying that an attempted military coup 
against an elected President was justified because of corruption in that 
very same military (certainly not Chavez's fault), and because of 
disagreement over economic policies?  Is that your idea of democracy?  If 
I disagree with an elected government's economic policies, my 
responsibility as a citizen is to vote for someone else next time, not to 
support the goverment's overthrow by generals.
