Is The US Propaganda Machine Really This Organized? [5:13 pm]

I would tend to doubt it, but it’s clear that the Venezuelans are sure.  And what does that say about how we are perceived? US video game angers Chavez allies in Venezuela - [pdf]

Venezuelan lawmakers are complaining that a video game to be marketed by a U.S. company next year provides a blueprint for violently overthrowing President Hugo Chavez.

The game, “Mercenaries 2: World in Flames,” simulates a military invasion of the oil-rich South American nation and will be released by Pandemic Studios of Los Angeles.

“A power-hungry tyrant messes with Venezuela’s oil supply, sparking an invasion that turns the country into a war zone,” Pandemic says of the game on its Web site.

Venezuelan lawmakers who back Chavez called it the latest example of a U.S. government-inspired propaganda campaign against Chavez that could even help lay the psychological groundwork for an actual invasion.
