    Exactly, it's about time the bus driver got a grip and moved the country forward.

    That will never happen though with all the money being wasted on Cuba and the other hangers on.

    Venezuelan participation will probably give the US a justification to ignore the security coucil for a couple of years.

    Putting maduro on the security council is like giving the Nobel Peace Prize to a monkey.

    The UN is really going down the drain.....The US should tell them to vacate the building in NYC and go to Russia...

    It's hard to imagine Mad Urine being of any use on the Security Council. What am I saying? It's impossible. Of course, he won't be going to New York. Too much chance of being shot. By a gangster. Or a cop. Or an ex-pat. Or a person. Many 'state' funerals take place in the Hudson River. Or in an overpass support. That would be a first. Mad Urine being upstanding.

    I've been saying for a long time that Maduro is not only paranoid, but delusional too.
    I think the above article rather proves my point.
    He constantly refers to Chavez in an attempt to cloak himself in the aura of the so-called “Eternal Commander”.
    Expect some outlandish statements at the UN.....

    Perhaps now Qaddafi will rise from the dead and give Maduro his Peace Prize, just as he gave it to the late great “ello Prezidente”.
