People unhappy with Japanese political comedy must be yearning for Libya, Venezuela type of politics. Perhaps yo’ll can move there and harangue.

If the US was not so hypocritical in all it's Oil despotic dealings around the world, Chavez would not have to bring this to light. I've said it before and I'll say it again, where was the no-fly zone in Egypt & Tunisia? Bahrain could use one too if the Shia MAJORITY cannot get a fair deal from the oil despot there supported by the US 5th Fleet. Right??

Libya and Venezuela, two countries united by gloriously loony rhetoric.

@Nessie Chavez was elected by the MAJORITY of people in Venezuela. He had a much greater percentage of the national vote than George Bushfire ever had...even higher than Obama is now. You really need to THINK before you write, Nessie. It might do u some good.

“I’m not like that,” Chavez added, noting that he has refused to condemn Gadhafi’s actions like other leaders across the globe.

What a guy...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, where was the no-fly zone in Egypt and Tunisia?

I think you need to actually have planes flying in the air and bombing people for a no-fly zone to even be considered. But maybe I'm just speaking before thinking.

Chavez was basically whored out by the radical left. They were buddy-buddy when Bush was in office but now that Bush is gone Chavez is on his own and it doesn't seem to be suiting him well.

Your comment about Chavez being "democratically elected" either means you don't know jack about the control he has in the country or you do know jack about the control he has in the country and you're just distorting reality. Either way, you lose. And soon Chavez will as well. It's just a matter of time. I'll get you a box of tissues.

Nessie Chavez was elected by the MAJORITY of people in Venezuela.

Then he took over the media, arrested opposition leaders and made himself president for life.

Ok, look at it this way... WHAT was Venezuela like BEFORE Chavez came to power? Were the poor getting a share of the oil revenues for Health, Education, etc.? Yes, Chavez has done some stupid things, but I truly believe his heart is in the right place. He sends oil to Cuba in return for doctors & dentists, etc. Is this not noble?

So there's not a concerted movement of rich Venezuelans (like Neocons here in America) to roll back his social policies? Must CAPITALISM be the only SOLUTION? Do citizens have to suffer at the hands of GREEDY multinational corporations day in, day out? Is this actually VIABLE? Come on!

Also, look at the distortions we get in the corporate-owned mainstream press here in the US. They keep advocating WAR WAR WAR with Iran, etc. Where's the alternate voice? I feel this is probably the same thing happening in Venezuela. So can you blame Chavez for trying to reign in the press? Come on, the media also has to be RESPONSIBLE lest they lose their broadcasting license!

Again, Chavez has done some idiotic things, BUT he's not GREEDY nor is he raiding Venezuela's treasury. That's a fact!

So worrying about a Libya-like uprising in Venezuela was the reason why Chaves feigned illness in Cuba.
