Chavez in Tehran: "Empire of dollar is crashing"

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on November 19, 2007

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Monday the “empire of the dollar is crashing,” a day after his country and anti-U.S. ally Iran advocated action over the weakening U.S. currency during an OPEC summit in Riyadh.

Chavez, who on Saturday said oil prices could double to $200 per barrel if the United States attacks Iran over its disputed atomic ambitions, spoke to reporters after talks with his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“Soon we will not talk about dollars because the dollar is falling in value and the empire of the dollar is crashing,” Chavez said in comments translated into Farsi from Spanish.

“Naturally, by the crash of the dollar, America’s empire will crash,” Chavez said at a joint news conference with Ahmadinejad. The two presidents share the same viewpoint in denouncing U.S. influence in the world.

Liberals love Chavez. What will sean penn think? Code Pink? Jimmy Carter?

    How will Hillary deal with Hugo? Im thinking a Venezuela-America “Special Relationship”. Hillary promises arms for subjugating Chavez’s people and Hugo tells Hillary how to nationalize US industry..

    Both of these countries – Iran and Venezuela – are like big spiders that you find on your doorstep in the morning. You can either step on them, and be done with it or kick the brutes into the flowers. If you opt for the former, you’ve got a big mess on the sole of your shoe, and it’s not worth stepping on the bugs. If they’re there the next morning, you can take that as an enemy action and squash them mercilessly.
