Chavez, posturing before the global community.....never.
It almost seems as if Chavez is deliberately trying to goad the US into something....just recently he also threatened to give 22 F-16 fighters to China or Cuba, despite an agreement with Venezuala that they would not do that.
It appears that this guy is a shadow of Suddam Hussein.
What gets me is how revered he is by the "left". Mind boggling.
Who reveres him? Way to lump millions of people into a single, unfounded blanket statement Said.
Way to pretend you don't know what I'm talking about.
In any case, I'm refering to those on the left. In my case, I'm facing East, so all those who live on my left hand side...which is North, are on the left and support Chavez. Kay.
I think you also forgot to post your opinion. Which is what???
The guy was elected legally by the people of Venezuela so I think he represents how other Venezuelans feel. He's the president of a piss-ant South American jungle country so his opinion about US policy doesn't really matter that much. He's an idiot if he thinks he's going to win friends and influene people in America by talking the way he does and taking photo-ops with Saddam and Castro. So far all I know about the guy is that he offered cheap heating oil to victims of Katrina as a gift from his country. With people in our country like the idiot Rev. Pat Robertson calling for his assassination on the 700 Club, it's no wonder Chavez is paranoid. That's my opinion. But you know what opinions are like right Said? :gross2:
Well think about it for a second. Do you know anything about Castro?
Democracy doesn't always mean the elected leader is what's best for the people. He's created a Vanguard party of sorts, he's a Leninist. He will act on what he "says" is best for the majority and attempt to establish equality of conditon through what is essentially force. This is somethign that sounds good on the surface, but is far from it.
Castro? I know the SOB let Russia park nukes 90 miles off of our coast in the 1960s. I know he's a militant Communist. I know he's old and will die soon. I think Chavez is a definate step forward for Venezuela. It may not be saying much, but he's one of the most stable and ambitious leaders it has had in over a decade.
No, it isn't saying much. Forced equlity of condition and isolationism didn't do much for Russia, or oil dependant Cuba. did it?
