What Latin America needs: "V" for Vendetta!

Most of the North American public has labeled "V for Vendetta" , or a pro-terrorist or an anti-Bush film.
Here in Latin America we have a complete different vision of this.
While American people are used to live in a democratic republic for almost 230 years, down here we experienced the opposite , in the past - or we have radical leftist terrorists trying to sublevate our countries, or we have some kind of authoritarian regimes to stop them.
Nowadays, after the fall of Berlin's wall, when all we needed was a return to democracy and peace, the reds seemed to returned from hell..
By now we have a special class of totalitarian rebirth: faked democratic republic like Venezuela, Bolivia and Brazil under the shadow of a more-than-ever-influential Fidel Castro.

What we need right now is someone like "V", to open the eyes and minds to the real face of the 'democratic' regimes we're live in...

Here 's a memorable quote from the film "V": V's speech... Enjoy!


V - Hugo Weaving
Evey Hammond - Natalie Portman

Evey Hammond: Who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the voxpopuli, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

Evey Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?
V: I'm quite sure they will say so...

"People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people."

Very good sir. It is now sixty years since my ship used to dock in Callao, and I remember it quite well. Welcome to our International Brotherhood, because I believe that is what we should call it, those of us who are determined to resist another Red Terror.
When Chavez takes delivery of 100,000 sub-machine guns, he will pass them out all over South America, and the real terror will begin for those who long for Democracy.
