    Well it's official. The Obama/Chavez love affair is now over. Comrades no more. :boohoo:


    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dismissed a U.S. warning to avoid close ties with Iran on Sunday, denouncing what he said was Washington's attempt to dominate the world as he welcomed the Iranian president to the Latin American nation.

    Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived at the start of a tour to shore up support from the region's leftist leaders, as tough new Western sanctions aim to isolate the Islamic republic and target its vital oil exports.

    "A spokesman or spokeswoman in Washington from the State Department or the White House said it was not convenient for any country to get close to Iran. Well, the truth is, it made you laugh," Chavez said in a televised speech.

    "They're not going to be able to dominate this world. Forget about it (President Barack) Obama, forget about it. It would be better to think about the problems in your country, which are many," he said.

    "We are free. The people of Latin America will never again kneel, dominated by the imperial Yankee. Never again," he said, to applause from his audience at an oil processing facility.

    Obama signed measures into law on New Year's Eve that will make it harder for most countries to buy Iranian oil.

    The European Union is also expected to announce some type of ban on Iranian oil by the end of this month, and Washington has said that Ahmadinejad's planned tour of Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and Ecuador showed Iran was "desperate" for friends.

    "We are making absolutely clear to countries around the world that now is not the time to be deepening ties, not security ties, not economic ties, with Iran," a U.S. State Department spokeswoman said on Friday.

    The sanctions are aimed at forcing Iran to halt its nuclear work, which the United States and its allies say is aimed at producing bombs. Iran says it is for power generation.

    Did you ever actually think they were buddies or are you saying that to be cute?

    Good point.


    I think we need to put a bunch of troops around Venezuela.


    If Iran and Venezuela really become even closer buddies, they would squash our military and we'd be simultaneously living under Sharia Law and full blown socialism.


    Meddle now, or we'll perish.

    No one said he does give a fuck. Just making an observation. Where are all those Left/Chavez butt-sniffers who used to frequent this board cheerleading for him? Looks like they're a bit confused now that their ole Comrade despises their Obama. Chavez butt-sniffing days over for the Left? Stay tuned.

    Never. For the far left, Chavez will always be a hero and Obama a traitor.

    Interesting take. The far Left sees Obama as a 'Traitor' now? Hmm? I did not know this.

    But who cares what those two say anyway? The rest of us realize he's not perfect, just a lot better than the current Rep field.
