    what a catastrophe for the bush administration. just when everything else is falling apart, putin and chavez (especially) do and say provocative things.

    it really is quite stupid of the bush administration to write off and punish venezuela for ideological reasons. meanwhile, putin sees the (huge) economic benefit to being allies.

    in 20 years, when we (americans) ask ourselves how we lost our superpower status, we should be looking back at our relations with venezuela (among many other examples) and how we concentrated our energies on All The Wrong Things.

    Hahaha, I love Hugo Chávez...what a guy! :p

    While I don't particularly support the export of Soviet weapons to other countries regardless of how much I like Venezuela, I think Chávez's verbal attack on the US is hilarious.

    I'd like to buy him a beer just for knowing how to be a sh*t-disturber.

    Holy crap. Chavez just made an alliance pact with Iran the other day.

    Looks like Bush is managing to create new axes of evil.

    Way to go, W.

    Easy enough to figure out. Venezuela has oil.
