Even the Venezuelan Foriegn Minister agrees

''It's a natural byproduct of their confrontation with the United States,'' said Armando Durán, a columnist and former Venezuelan foreign minister. ``Chávez looks for an alliance with those who confront the U.S.''
According the former foriegn minister, Chavez wants to butt heads. Some speculate that this is a move to position himself as the Anti-American for the upcoming December Election, but I think there has to be more than that. When these two (or three if you count Cuba) countries are already working joint ventures to build major manufacuturing plants, "Houston, we have a problem."

Days earlier, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte told the Senate Intelligence Committee that Venezuela is ``seeking closer economic, military, and diplomatic ties with Iran and North Korea.''

Again there is that word. MILITARY. And then we get word that Hugo wants to vote against reporting Iran to the UN security council. What is the purpose of the UN again, please? Oh, right it was established in part, to give influence to rogue nations who would normally have no international presence. Okay, not really, but sometimes it sure does look that way...
