The War on Hugo Chavez


The "War on Hugo Chavez" continues.

I'm not making a stand FOR Chavez - I'm not taking a position against him - I'm just saying...the Conservative Establishment is on the attack - and presenting anti-Chavez material to the 'Merican people.

The headline from the Washington Times (an uber-conservative fish-wrap)?

"Iranian pact with Venezuela stokes fears of uranium sales"

See how easy it is? "Evil" plus "evil" equals "mushroom cloud":
BUENOS AIRES -- A recent deal between Iran and Venezuela provides for the exploitation of Venezuela's strategic minerals, prompting opposition figures to warn that President Hugo Chavez's government could be planning to provide Tehran with uranium for its nuclear program.

Fantastic journalism

He could be working with the Klingons, too.
The deal was part of a package of agreements, most of which were announced during a visit last month to Caracas and Cuba by Iranian parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad-Adel. The two countries also established a joint $200 million development fund and signed bilateral deals to build homes and factories, and exploit petroleum.

Public details are vague, but Venezuelan opposition figures and press reports have said the deal on minerals could involve the production and transfer to Iran of Venezuelan uranium taken from known deposits located in the dense jungle states of Amazonas and Bolivar.
Alright. That's a key passage.

"Opposition forces" = the Venezuelan elites and media types who hate Chavez.

Remember, HC has the support of the country's poor folk. And control of the country's oil. The elites (natch pro-American opposition forces) hate that.


The opposition forces said that the deal "could" involve the production and transfer of uranium to Iran.

It could also include a giant shipment of deadly carnitas, but we have no way of really knowing that, do we?

All we know is that the Washington Times is pushing the Iran/Venezuela connection.


Look for more articles like the weeks and months to come.
Mr. Chavez last week ridiculed such speculation as being part of an "imperialist plan" propagated by international news media.

"Now they say I am sending uranium to make atomic bombs from here, from the Venezuelan Amazon to send directly to the Persian Gulf," Mr. Chavez said during a meeting at a military club on Tuesday.

"This shows they have no limit in their capacity to invent lies."
I'm stunned that the WashTimes even printed that comment.

More later...
