wow. he is a uniter

Chavez and Iran unveil anti-US fund
Ahmadinejad and Chavez have strong ties and frequently call each other "brother" [AFP]

The presidents of Iran and Venezuela have agreed to spend billions of dollars to help other countries free themselves from what they describe as US domination.

Hugo Chavez announced the plan in a speech on Saturday with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The two also called for Opec to cut oil production to support falling crude prices.

They had previously announced plans to establish a joint $2bn fund for projects in Venezuela and Iran but on Saturday they said that the money would also be used to help friendly third countries.

"This fund, my brother," Chavez said, "will become a mechanism for liberation."

Chavez said the fund "will permit us to underpin investments ... above all in those countries whose governments are making efforts to liberate themselves from the [US] imperialist yoke ... Death to US imperialism."

Ahmadinejad, who is on a tour of Latin America, said that Tehran and Caracas had the task of "promoting revolutionary thought in the world".

"The reason for all the current problems is the erroneous direction of the powerful countries, where there is poverty, hate, enmity and war," he added.

Oil agreement

The two presidents announced that they would make a joint effort to obtain new oil production cuts.

"Today we know that there is too much crude in the market, that's why we support ... the decisions that have been taken to reduce production and protect the price of oil," Chavez said.

He emphasised that he was sending the message "to all the heads of state in the Opec countries to continue to strengthen our organisation in this direction".

Members of the 11-nation Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) have expressed concern about the falling price of oil, which has slid 14 per cent since the start of the year.

Ahmadinejad has praised Chavez for his outspoken support of Iran's nuclear programme, which the US and European governments say may be part of a project to build atomic weapons.

Vocal supporter

Facing the threat of international isolation and sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council over its uranium enrichment work, Iran is keen to demonstrate it has backing among a number of leaders in Latin America.
Chavez is the most vocal supporter in Latin America for Iran and its president, with both men calling each other "brother" and relishing their status as fierce opponents of Washington's influence.
"Hugo is my brother," Ahmadinejad said during his last visit to Venezuela in September. "Hugo is the champion of the fight against imperialism."
In September 2005, Venezuela was alone in opposing a resolution at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that found Iran in violation of nuclear safeguards. Chavez has since backed Iran's right to enrich uranium.
Iran and Venezuela are both important players in Opec and have signed numerous co-operation agreements in the energy sector and other fields.
During a visit to Iran last September, Chavez came out in support of Iran's nuclear programme, as well as denouncing Israeli military operations in Lebanon.
The two presidents also signed deals covering iron and steel production, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and health care equipment and munitions.

Cultivating allies

While Ahmadinejad seeks to cultivate Latin American allies, Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, is in the Middle East to rally Arab support for a new US strategy in Iraq and counter Iran's alleged "interference" in Iraq.

Ahmadinejad arrived in Nicaragua late on Saturday, where Daniel Ortega has just returned to power. The Iranian president was met at the airport by the new Nicaraguan president.
On Monday, Ahmadinejad will take part in the swearing-in ceremony of Ecuador's new president Rafael Correa, who has vowed to forge stronger ties with Venezuela and not to renew a lease for a US military air base on the country's Pacific coast. The Iranian president will also hold meetings with other South American presidents including Bolivia's Evo Morales on the sidelines of the ceremony in Ecuador, before finishing his tour on Tuesday.

I can think of lots of things to say about either or both of them, or their new plan.

Not a one is fit to repeat in mixed company, or even on OT.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

Seems that Pelosi has joined in this little coalition and made it a 3Some.

Democrats warn Bush against attacking Iran
1/19/2007 12:07 PM
By: Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- Democratic congressional leaders are warning the Bush administration not to attack Iran without lawmakers' approval.
Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid told the National Press Club that the president doesn't have the authority to launch such an attack. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also addressed the club ahead of Bush's State of the Union speech next year.
The administration has said it has no intentions of invading Iran, but hasn't ruled it out. A second aircraft carrier has been sent to the Persian Gulf.
Bush said last week that the U.S. will “seek out and destroy'' networks providing support to insurgents in Iraq. The administration has accused Iran of meddling in Iraqi affairs, contributing technology and bomb-making materials for insurgents attacking U.S. and Iraqi forces.

Things are well under way, last month Venezuela and Iran already commenced production of the Saipa 141, a car made by the Iran Khodro company, to be built in a factory in Madaray, Venezuela. the vehicle will sell for approximately $7500-$8000 USD, and the plant capacity will be 20,000 cars per year, to be sold in the coming three years.

Additionally, over 150 memoranda of understanding have been signed between Iran and Venezuela in various fields.
