Nice!! Another Fidel in the making… Shades of Cuban Missle Crisis anyone? Yo…Fidel! What are you chopped liver? Can’t leverage those Cuban cigars like Venezuelan oil can you? Too bad. No tears here.
Chavez want’s his place on the world stage as well. Will all the lunatic dictators please stand up and be counted while the rest of the world appears frozen staring into the headlights. Looking for clear leadership? The London-Washington tag team perhaps? Dudes… don’t look towards Washington — we have an election to get ready for. This is no time for any bi-partisan strategy to counter looming foreign threats. Get real — we have an election in four months!
