Hugo Chavez also sneers at Iranian protestors
I must thank Bob of Bob From Brockley for this link.
Sadly but unsurprisingly Hugo Chavez has stood by Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, regardless of the protests that have taken place over the last week.
A Venezuelan foreign ministry statement, "in the name of the people," hailed the "extraordinary democratic development" that resulted in Ahmadinejad's victory.
"The Bolivarian government of Venezuela expresses its firm rejection of the ferocious and unfounded campaign to discredit, from abroad, that has been unleashed against Iran, with the objective of muddying the political climate of this brother country," said the statement issued June 16. "We demand the immediate end to maneuvers to intimidate and destabilize the Islamic Revolution."”
This sort of tripe makes me sick to be a leftist. For the likes of Chavez, Milne, Galloway and far too many others it does not matter what sort of scumbag someone is so long as they are anti American
Aren’t we meant to be better than this?
Bob has collated an excellent series of posts on Iran from around the blogosphere... oh and drivel from some tit called Jams O'Donnell!
