[Interesting little nugget here from the â€˜inventors of spinâ€™, the BBC, that I thought was worth sharing with you. The fact itâ€™s reported at all and so directly, reveals just how central energy is to big capital’s activities and when a bunch off brown-skinned fellas start mucking about with it, there’s normally hell to pay by somebody, somewhere.
The Beeb reminds of this in the first sentence just in case we forget that Chavez and Fidel are Commies joined at the hip so-to-speak, â€˜itâ€™s them damn Commies again, wonâ€™t they ever go away?â€™
Elsewhere, I read that com Chavez wears Louis Vuitton (sp?) suits, well why not, he’s the prez. You don’t hear anybody making a big deal about who makes Blairâ€™s suits and how much they cost do you? Why shouldnâ€™t the man look cool, he represents his country and does a damn sight better job of it than that gringo up el norte way.
And right at the end of the snippet, icing on the cake you might say, we find out that super-model Naomi Campbell turned up in Cienfuegos, Cuba, hanging out with them damn Commies! How rive gauche can one get? The Ed]
Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela is a close ally of Cuba
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said Central American and Caribbean states could pay for oil with services or products like bananas and sugar.
Speaking in Cuba at the regional Petrocaribe summit of oil consumers and exporters, Mr Chavez said they were creating a ‘new geopolitics of oil’.
The group is not at the service of ‘imperialism and capitalists’, he said.
