Argentine president Cristina Fernandez is flying Saturday to Emirates the first leg of a trade tour that includes the Far East after spending 24 hours in Cuba where she met the Castro brothers, visited the relatives of cancer-stricken President Hugo Chavez and late Friday held a mini summit with Venezuelan Vice president Nicolas Maduro and Peruvian head of state Ollanta Humala.

    So, the Venezuelan government didn't want CFKC to visit Chavez and told her not to go to Cuba. She went anyway but was not allowed to see him.

    Chavez is either dead or in a coma. There is no way he is running Venezuela.

    Presumably she's then flying off for a tête-à-tête with Kim Jong-un, after a brief stopover in Iran for a chelow kabab with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

    If you were dying would you want a visit from someone who looks like they had a starring role in Night of the Living Dead?

    I just think the Venezulan government were trying to protect him from the insane bint.

    well even Chavez didn't want to see her and Castro couln't be bothered to take off his westernised Adidas tracksuit to greet her what a clusterfook. Bet he said after she'd gone “ who was that again, she needs some work done on that coupon”

    I have no doubts that 'Sussie' (possibly ProstiARG) does not live in the USA.

    Sussie can't give details - and ProstiARG has not responded when challenged over his US Navy 'career' .

    Ha ha ha, faker.

    @17 I know mate I have asked IT several questions ref the USN who I served along side in the Gulf wars and various other exercises and IT hasn't a clue, if IT served in the USN then I'm Winston Churchill. You have to wonder though if these people lie as often as they do, do they start to believe thier own bullshit

    Yep it's official, he's dead!

    Maduro couldn't run the risk that a woman that still uses widow's weeds to rally the troops would not try to use it to bolster her fragile presidency.

    I keep predicting that his official death will be on an auspicious date.

    She really does look like a 65 yo dumpy 'hausfrau' in that picture.

    Chavez is a great person who loves to help his people, we pray for him and wish the best to Venezuela. CFK must be going through a hard time because Chavez went to Argentina when Nestor was ill and Chavez presented CFK a portrait drawn by Chavez himself of Nestor while CFK was still mourning Nestor, I am proud to see her visit him, as she puts it, Chavez and Venezuela came to Argentina when everyone run from it.
    I wonder what happened to luis posadas carriles the terrorist living in USA?

    #25 I don't think a photo shot was worth the risk, if I am to assume anything, it was probably orders from Fidel Castro, and I don't think your mom would be proud of you.

    @26 The Venezuelan government specifically told CFKC NOT to go to Cuba to see Chavez. In her typical narcissistic manner, she put her needs first and went anyway. When she got there Chavez's family did not let her see him. The Castro's merely distracted her.

    I suspect he is dead or being kept alive by machines and they don't want the news getting out until they are ready. Old blabbermouth CFKC does not engage her brain before she speaks so could not be trusted to know the truth.

    Isn't it time to admit that Chavez is no longer in the land of the living? Why was CFK not allowed to see him? Either he is dead or is passing through the departure lounge.

    This article has passed its sell by date

    Is he even technically alive? Having photos with pickled people isn't exactly ethical.

    Why did CFK want to bring him a bible? Chavez knows the bible very well. In Dec 2011 he placed himself in the display of the Christmas Nativity, among the baby Jesus, the Wise Men and animals. Isn't that nice. Lookie here:
