On Coups

So Jimmy Carter says Bush might have been behind an anti-Chavez coup attempt in Venezuela. Assuming it's true surely a lot of locals down there and ex-patriots up here are still disappointed it didn't come off.

But Jimmy thinks it's a bad thing. What about Clinton's coup to get rid of Saddam in 1996? Does Carter even know? And if he does, would he be willing to entertain that had it been successful perhaps the 2003 war would not have been necessary, saving US lives?
