Chavez fetes Lukashenko win
Following his unsurprising landslide victory in last week’s elections in Belarus (the only strange thing being that he did not claim that 2,377.48% of the electorate had cast votes in his favour) , it did not take long for one of the truest friends of freedom (ha!) to send his heartiest and most hyperbole-filed congratulations
Hugo Chavez, made this statement in the wake of Stalin’s, sorry Lukashenko’s victory: “It was an extraordinary day for democracy, which resulted in the re-election of the great European leader. Lukashenko knows how to lead the glorious motherland to independence, putting the sacred interests of his people ahead of the narrow- minded intentions of the world powers.”
By contrast Ahmadinejad was rather muted saying, if Press TV is to be believed (a big if) that the recent presidential election in Belarus was another "golden page in the honorable history" of the Belarusian people.
What can I say but repeat my assertion that Chavez is an utter wanker. I suppose I could rant on about the man but I just cant be bothered…
