Chavez, the Venezualan Thug, At it again

He can stir up more rukus with that huge maw of his. Won't it be funny WHEN we open up those new oil fields in a few years and we can tell him to stick his oil up his hoochie coochie candy ass!

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela's foreign minister was detained by U.S. authorities at a New York airport for more than hour Saturday as he tried to return to the South American country, President Hugo Chavez said.
U.S. and U.N. officials called the incident regrettable but said Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro had been identified for "secondary screening," a security check that can kick in when a passenger arrives without a ticket.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez told Venezuela's state TV broadcaster that U.S. officials alleged that Maduro had links to a failed coup that Chavez led in Venezuela in 1992.

"They have held him accusing him of participating in terrorist acts here," Chavez said in Venezuela. "He didn't even participate in that patriotic rebellion," he said, referring to the uprising he led while still an army officer.

Both Venezuelan politicians were in New York the past week attending the yearly U.N. General Assembly, where Chavez called President Bush "the devil" during his U.N. speech. He later criticized the U.S. leader during a stop in Harlem before returning home.

Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said in Washington that Maduro was referred for secondary screening but never reached that section of the airport.

"He began to articulate his frustration with secondary screening right after he went through the magnetometer," Knocke said, referring to the walk-through metal detector. "Port Authority officials confronted him when the situation became a ruckus." Knocke did not elaborate.

A U.N. diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly, said that Maduro's passage was delayed because he had showed up late without a ticket, prompting the screening.

"We can confirm that a regrettable incident occurred at John F. Kennedy airport for which the U.S. government has apologized to Foreign Minister Maduro and the government of Venezuela," U.S. State Department spokesman Tom Casey said.

Maduro told CNN en Espanol that he was confined to a small room and told to remove his clothes. He charged that when he showed his diplomatic passport, he says he was threatened, pushed and yelled at by immigration and police officials.

"They were violating diplomatic conventions," he said.

Knocke denied the allegations, telling the AP that "there's no evidence to substantiate any sort of abnormality in the screening process."

In remarks carried by Venezuelan TV stations, Maduro said U.S. authorities claimed a code on his airplane ticket identified him as "almost a terrorist."

Maduro abandoned his plans to board his flight and returned to New York city.

Not every politician who disagrees with Bush and Co. can be labeled a thug. Saddam Hussain and General Noriega, to name just some of the former friends of the US Goverment were definitely thugs. In Chavez case, let him pursue his socialist pipe dream and wreck Venezuelas economy for years to come. It means more oil for us.

That's entertainment

How is investing in the nation's infrastructure and spreading wealth going to wreck his economy? Given Merka's (CIA/mercenary) extensive criminal record in SA, it's his stridency more than his economic policies that threaten Venezuala. He's a brash loudmouth with lots of oil money--so what? Our foreign policy is a far far greater threat to Merka than anything he can say or do. More power to him, and those who dig his message. Bring it on, baby...bring it on!

The demise of the USSR and the capitalist ways of China speak for themselves. Time will tell. Nationalizing the energy sector while Brazil was a major share holder was a strange move.
