Venezuela and Libya

Hugo Chávez bestowed the Order of the Liberator on Muammar Gaddafi.

“The entire people of Margarita is full of joy with your presence and they pay you homage as prove of our love and affection to Libyan people, to Arab people, African people, to the great Libyan revolution,” Chavez said.


“We are making history. We are facing the imperialism, the bourgeoisie and backwardness, the colonialism of more than 500 years that has assaulted our peoples and that's why the Bolivarian Revolution is full of jubilation with the presence of one of the great leaders of this century,” Chavez said.
No commentary really needed.

Update: Angus (aka Kevin Grier) at Kids Prefer Cheese provides commentary. So to speak.

With the attempt at mockery here, perhaps it is worth reflecting on the fact that Libya was recently elected in secret ballot to lead the UN General Assembly (to follow D'Escoto). In addition, Libya was elected by African countries to represent Africa on the Security Council. Obviously some people in the world agree with the spirit of Chavez's assessment.

Hugo Chavez : From Elementary Terrorism killing children with Land Mines in Colombia ( via FARC ) to Postgraduate Nuclear Terrorism and Threat

Hugo Chavez has been in the School of Terrorism. First he helps the FARC to kill children by sowing land mines in agricultural fields, throwing gas cylinders over the houses of Old People and Women in the poorest hamlets to burn and explode them.

Nobody paid attention, so now he wants to be in the Big Leagues of Nuclear Terrorism and Atomic Threats.

Three Dangerous Stooges : Gadhafi, Ahmadinejad Chavez

Some excerpts :

Venezuela's Hugo Chavez may have delivered the strangest monologue. He mostly idolized leftwing filmmaker Oliver Stone for making a fawning documentary about revolutionary Venezuela. But somehow Chavez also brought up the Kennedy assassination. And, yes, he also faulted America for his own problems.

Chavez has cut off all relations with Israel. Jews have been increasingly attacked in Venezuela, and reports have spread that Chavez is reaching out to Iran for a nuclear program.

Listening to all this insanity, it's clear that the problems these dictators pose (and the attitudes they represent) go beyond whether our president is Texan George Bush or post-national Barack Obama.

Take away oil and the money it garners - Iran, Libya and Venezuela are all larger petroleum exporters -- and these strongmen would never receive high-profile television venues at the UN. Oil props up all three economies, which have largely been wrecked by their own incompetence.

All three freely express hatred of Jews, reminding us that there is no longer a downside to flashy anti-Semitism. It used to be rightwing scourges whom we associated with the hatred of a Hitler or the Klan.

Today, leftist oil-rich thugs voice slander against tiny Israel to show their revolutionary credentials, even as they find scapegoats for their own colossal failures.

Ahmadinejad, Chavez and Gadhafi are not just regional buffoons, but international dangers. Iran will probably get a few bombs soon. Gadhafi was scheming to obtain one until the Iraq war -- and has the money and the anger to try again. Chavez brags he has bought "little rockets" from Russia and now wants his own nuclear program.

Latin Chernobyls ??

When Chavez Nuclear Plants accidentally explode or someone prevents or "delays" Chavez Atom or Hydrogen Bombs by means of airstrikes.

I fear for the Future, Who can be more irresponsible, vulgar and aggressive than Chavez and the redshirt Chavistas.

Nuclear Plants is a dangerous technology and can be operated only by the most responsible scientists and men of Wisdom.

Nuclear Plants and Socialist Dictatorships doesn't seem a Great couple.

And if those nuclear facilities are used to refine or purify Uranium. Then sooner or later the Madmen and Dictators decide to make bombs.

There are dirty bombs, bombs that do not explode but just poison the environment with plutonium ( best poison ) or other radioactive materials.
