Venezuela’s corruption level equal to war-torn nations

Transparency International Map 2009The BBC carries today an interesting article about worldwide corruption levels, entitled “War-torn nations ‘most corrupt‘” Venezuela is not officially at war, yet, though Hugo Chavez seems keen on taking the country down that path. As far as corruption is concerned Venezuela, has achieved the distinction of being in the same league as Africa’s most backward nations.

But if one were to take murder rates, largely unpunished owing to a totally useless and careless State that profits from it, then Chavez-land is in a league of its own, not only among war-torn nations, but among any other type. After all, Caracas was defined as the capital murder of the world.
