One of the things that concerns me about Venezuela's stability today is that there is an entire generation of military officers trained to believe that the coup on 4 February 1992 was a heroic act by a man who eventually became president. Unlike the rest of South America, where militaries have been warned away from coups and punished (at least mildly) for their legacies, Venezuela's official military doctrine for the last 15 years says there is a difference between a good military coup and a bad military coup. They've been given a model for what a "good coup" looks like. They've had parades celebrating that 4F coup and its legacy.
