'New Castro' (Chavez) Threatens to Take His Feud With America Nuclear
May 29, 2005

New Castro threatens to take his feud with America nuclear
Tony Allen-Mills, Washington


PRESIDENT George W Bush is a jerk. His administration is a mafia of assassins. And, according to Hugo Chavez, the belligerent populist president of Venezuela, Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, lies in bed at night dreaming of him.

Chavez, 50, is rapidly becoming a US nightmare in Latin America. He aroused further American anger last week by threatening to form a nuclear alliance with Iran. The prospect of two hostile, oil-rich governments working together against US interests has shocked Washington and plunged relations with Venezuela to a dangerous new low.

US officials have begun to suspect that Chavez is plotting to become the new Castro the leading voice in the region of leftist anti-Americanism.

Behind the disintegrating relationship between Washington and one of its most important oil suppliers lies Chavezs apparent conviction that US agents were behind an attempted coup that briefly ousted him in 2002.

3. The "New Castro" was actually democratically elected by Venezuelans...

Although you wouldn't know that from the vague reference "Storming back to power after a referendum last August"....

4. Condi lies in bed at night dreaming of Bush**!!
LOL, almost sounds like Chavez reads us on the DU. He might have lifted that line from here.

You go, Hugo! Keep telling it like it is! :rofl:

5. I read it differently
I read it as Condi dreams of Chavez. Which is a pretty peculiar thing to say.

8. Rupert Murdoch owns The Times of London
Tony Allen-Mills has written the usual rightwing tripe one finds in any of the other Murdoch's media outlets such as Faux News.

Obviously this goes with Condi Rice refusal to extradite to Venezuela the terrorist Posada. It appears that after being stuck in Iraq for years to come, the Bush regime is looking for a quick victory in what it considers its backyard, Latin America. Someone tell this fool that everyone is wise to his wicked ways, and the people of Latin America (and a few of us Americans) will rise in armed resistance if Bush attacks Venezuela.

11. May Chavez live to be 100!
If anything, he has not gone far enough in empowering the oppressed majority to really run society. There is no comprimising with an entrenched enemy that will not part with its ill-gotten spoils voluntarily. But I wish best of luck to the millions of progressives in Venezuela who are conscious of their global responsibility to fight for justice at home and abroad.
