Chavez is a thug with a private militia whose double standards would have made Nixon look like an honourable man. His subversion of the Bolivian and Equadorian elections has set both democracies back a decade and he is despised by more moderate but proven socialists such as Michelle Bachelet of Chile and the recently election Alan Garcia whose election to Peru he attempted to subvert.

Relying on lunatics like this is exactly why this country needs to create some hold over its own energy supply.
