Hugo Chavez's Anti-America Tour

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is on a tour of Russia, Belarus (he and President Alexander Lukashenko exchanged compliments about each other's leadership styles -- wow!), Qatar, Iran, Vietnam and Mali. He has said the tour is aimed at winning support for Venezuela's bid for a seat on the United Nations Security Council. Scary; but not out of the question considering the UN.

Russia resisted U.S. pressure and is fulfilling a $1 billion arms deal with Venezuela. He hopes to sign a $1 billion defense deal for the purchase of Russian fighter jets and helicopters. He also "eulogized" the Kalashnikov rifle.

According to Chavez, "the United States is the most immoral and cynical empire, worse even than the Roman empire. ... If somebody is going to meddle with us we'll fight back."

This pesky mosquito is interesting to say the least. A leader like this in our hemisphere, coupling his hatred of America, his arming, and his pow-wowing with communists and other dictators, he appears to be moving toward becoming a member of the covenanted "axis of evil" syndicate.
