A fight, A fight... Hugo Chavez: Be a Man
I always loved fights. I think most guys do, be they Dog Fights, Cock Fights, Chick Fights or the Indian Parliament. I've always wanted to write a post on what an evil socialist tyrant Hugo Chavez is, but hey everybody already knows that. So a fight sounds more fun.
They are even more fun when you pick sides. Hugo Chavez, has to be the absolute worst person outside of Iran, North Korea and Zimbabwe in the world with political power in his hands. He is now getting into it with Alvaro Uribe of Columbia. Go Uribe. From the telegraph UK (See http://bit.ly/9uAvNn).
Mr Uribe complained to Mr Chavez about a trade embargo Venezuela has imposed on Colombia, upsetting the Venezuelan president and further exacerbating their falling out ever since Bogota signed a military base agreement with the US last year.Calderon of Mexico steps in to be the peacemaker guy in your gym class who tries to break up a fight. But that guy always ends up getting clocked from the back. Calderon, watch your back.
Mr Chavez then accused Mr Uribe of planning his assassination by a paramilitary squad and threatened to walk out of the summit in disgust.
"An angry Uribe then shouted: 'Be a man! These issues are meant to be discussed in these venues. You're brave speaking at a distance, but a coward when it comes to talking face to face'," the diplomat said.
Mr Chavez is reported to have replied: "Go to hell!"
President Felipe Calderon of Mexico then attempted to reconcile the pair of fuming leaders, according to the diplomat.
