    Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is planning to visit Russia, Belarus, and Iran later next week. Russia-Venezuela cooperation follows the path of the Russia-Iran relationship, boosting an anti-American, authoritarian, and anti-status quo actor, only this time in the Latin America. Chavez also allows Iran to expand its influence in Latin America. To compete, Brazil is reaching out to the Islamic Republic. Both Brazil and Venezuela, together with Turkey, have already expressed their support to Iran by opposing the U.N. Security Council’s anti-Iranian sanctions, which, ironically, Russia supported.

    Moscow and Caracas have a booming military cooperation, including Russian arms sales to Venezuela. So far, Caracas has purchased $4 billion in arms, including fighter jets, Mi-17 helicopters, 100,000 Kalashnikov rifles, and a Kalashnikov factory—all in the last five years. And Venezuela is scheduled to buy $5 billion more in Russian weaponry.

    When Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin met with Chavez in April of this year, the two leaders discussed a satellite launch site, to begin Venezuela's space program, a joint venture on oil exploration in eastern Venezuela, and the construction of a nuclear power plant.

    Some observers nastily called the alliance of Venezuela, Iran and Russia “VIRUS.” The question is, whether the VIRUS has already spread, or is likely to spread, to Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, North Korea, and possibly China.

    So what's your point ? How many countries has the Empire invaded with their 700 BILLION dollar military budget ?
    How about the countries you mentioned above ? Who have they invaded ?
    How many civilians have they slaughtered ?
    Case closed. Go wave your flag, numbnuts.

    It's standard international trade, and China,etc bitch when we sell arms to traditional allies such as Taiwan, South Korea and Japan, when they make multi billion dollar arms deals with nations they only formed relations with just yesterday in political terms. Time to celebrate international hypocrisy. :lol:
