    Chavez in a veiled threat tells Spain’s Repsol to seek agreement with Argentina

    Ah the new bully on the block, wastes no time in enforcing its demands on the weak and innocent,

    Although in this case,
    It’s like looking into the mirror as far as Spain is concern.
    like him or hate him,
    at least someone is willing to put spain firmly in its place]

    UN here they go to , wahhh , wahhh ,

    Hugo surely has the hots for Christina and he's decided to flush his country down the toilet pan before he departs this world.

    Chavez is a great president and CFK should listen to democratically elected president hugo Chaves, his experience in dealing with rogue corporates and rogue states is amazing after coming back from a USA supported coup d'etat in 2001 and nationalizing the oil with a vengeance later has made him an iconic figure in latinamerica.

    @5 The one thing that Chavez , or Chaves as you put it, is most definitely NOT is democratically elected. He might have been ONCE but he has not been since 2005. He is a power-mad, lunatic dictator. But, since we have been informed recently that Venezuela is LatAm's first line of defence, we should look forward to the United States squashing the little flea into the guano.
    @7 I like Kermit. He has intelligence. Despite the physical similarity, Chavez just doesn't measure up!

    just shows you what low standards South America has and their obsession with putting one over on the “Gringos”. You have a huge chip on your shoulder.

    So many people are fooled by Chavez's charm instead of seeing this man for the sociapath he actualy is. Yes he was won every election, but that is not hard when you own 99% of the media outlets in the country and fine or shut down any media outlet which is critical of you. I have said it numerous times but please read the Human Rights Watch report on Chavez's administration.

    It details very clearly how this man rules by fear and intimedation and is using nationalism to screen his removal of his citizens human rights. He has now even instructed his government to withdraw from the Inter-American court on human rights.

    Chavez is a tyrant obosesed with mantaing his own power base. Keeping your people uneducated, un-informed and supplied with only positive messages from your government and not allowing anyonw to critise your policies or government model IS NOT and WILL NEVER BE democratic.

    And before you reply to this go and read these reports and actualy adress the arguments they present instead of trying to screen the issue with more patriotic fevour.

    @10 And your comment, along with your inability to spell, says what? Are you a piggy-lover? Are you a BK clone? What does “yomp” mean?

    Democratically elected mister president hugo Chavez came back from a coup d'etat set up by USA and Venezuela voted democratic Chavez into office not just once but twice lol. So lies and denial didn't help USA run latinamerica, now their lot sits here and fumes in anger do to their ever growing obsessive denial. We love Chavez and we support his integration to mercosur. While we thank him for his support towards Argentina against oil giants and pirates. Maybe CFK will return the favor by helping Chavez against the same oligacs in Venezuela.
    #6 that's right a say and a voté in mercosur.
    #11. The USA supported coup d'etat in 2001 made us all in latinamerica see who the enemy is. Unlike libyans today Venezuelans are not killing each other and the oil is still benefiting Venezuela. Unlike the oil theft in Libya and Iraq wich is used to pay for western weapons as in Syria, Mali and somalia., Chavez is a saint in comparison. Now sit in the corner quietly. I hope you are not talking about the same human rights that allowed Libya to be showered with western weapons and drove the country into death, hunger and anarchy, all this without even mentioning the ethnic cleaning, rapes as well as child abuse and summary executions. HRW are the supply line for terrorists, sorry dude but the cat is out of the bag, I am telling you this because you claim we are uneducated but facts show you we know better.
    #12 all short fat and ugly frustrated homosexuals seem to think like you is that a coincidence or are you all part of the same hair club???

    I have never stated you are not educated, and have you every heard that two wrongs do not make a right! Just because the West has made mistakes in other countries (And Western intervention in libya prevented many civillian deaths) does not make what Chavez is doing any less an abuse of human rights. Or is your argument that Chavez is not as bad as others have been in the past that the reduction in his peoples civil liberties is any less of a human rights violation. If you have proof that HRW is a “supply line for terrorists” then I would love to see it. You see unlike your assumptions HRW can actualy provide documented evidence to prrove Chavez human rights abuses this is what makes their report a serious document and your unsupported accusations meaningless and hence why the world listens when they speak and dont care what you say.

    All revolutions cause short term pain and suffering and war crimes etc are commited by both sides or do you believe that Chaev Guavara, Simon bolivar, San Martin etc where able to overthrow their colonial masters without bloodshed? This is exacly the same as Libya is now it will take a period of time for a country under a new governemnt to settle in especialy after many years of dictarship rule. Argentina for example had the same problems after it gained its independecne for example San Martin was so unhappy with the way the new Argentina intial set up its government that he left the country to live in France.

    If Chavez is so beloved by his people why is he using media control and santioning anyone who speaks out or critises him? What does an honest man have to hide? If you want an intellegiant then please adress the actualy arguments agiants Chavez and his administartaion as the argument that he is not as bad as x y and z is a diversion tactic and does not actually adress the argument in hand.

    If the media is threatening national security they are terrorists, not responsible media and must be terminated and judged as criminals, Google Luis posadas carries and see the links to CIA and terrorism and when HRW reported it if ever. Good luck.
    Proves lol yes Libya is full of CIA, mi6 terrorist, same in Afghanistan and Iraq and now Syria, Mali and somalia HRW is a joke budy. And you the circus clown, all those nations are pleased with billions worth of guns payed by bankers who will not invest on the poor but start wars and theft resources.
    Chavez is a great democratically elected president, and it's you and his oppositions job to show Chavez betrays his country or his people. Good luck with that too.

    If you think there were any spelling mistakes in that, then I am sorry to tell you that it is you that is broadcasting his inability to spell.

    As for being a piggy lover, where exactly have I ever said anything remotely complimentary about the La Plata whore?

    If you need someone to explain the meaning of 'yomp', then you clearly know next to bugger all about the Falkland Islands and their liberation from Argentine tyranny.
