Chávez also wants a nuclear program

Of course, he insists it’s a peaceful nuclear program, the same that Iran says, country with which Chávez signed recently an agreement to begin a “peaceful nuclear program”. But at the same time, he adds that he has bought several “little rockets from Russia”. It’s very doubtful those rockets were bought for “peaceful purposes” too…

Chávez’s statements in Lybia

It is interesting to see the degree of confidence or security that Chávez feels leaving Venezuela without worrying about the risk that perhaps he might not be able to come back. Right now the people of Venezuela are courageously defending their ideals and interests under attack by the Chávez dictatorship, disguised as democracy with the excuse that he was originally elected democratically. Incidentally, it is important to take into consideration that during his stop in Libya, referring to the campaign that he directed against Honduran democracy with the excuse of defending the extinguished constitutionality of Manuel Zelaya as President, he said that the eventual return of Zelaya was difficult because “already the electoral campaign has begun, then elections and then the page is turned. That is what I think, independently of the fact that Zelaya returns or not, at this point it is difficult to think this” as possible.

Chávez is visiting several terrorist-linked states.

Counterterrorism Blog: Chávez’s Excellent Adventure

According to the official presidential press office, Chávez will spend most of the first two weeks of September visiting Libya (where a convicted terrorist was just received as a hero by Gadaffi et al); Iran (whose newly-nominated defense minister Ahmad Vahidi is a wanted terrorist and responsible for numerous terrorist attacks, including one that killed Americans), then off to buy a battalion of tanks from Russia, arriving via Syria, another state sponsor of terrorism.

Lovely trip. While visiting Gadaffi, Chávez will also participate in an African Union summit, perhaps for the chance to rub elbows with Mugabe, Kabila and others to share lessons learned in destabilization.
