Bad News On The Russian Front

It didn’t take long for Russian dictator Putin to get over the terrorist attacks on his country to make a deal with another terrorist dictator, Venezuelan El Presidente for Life Hugo Chavez. Putin agreed on a twenty billion dollar plan for Russia to give Chavez nukes and space tech. Putin knows those two items will not be joined by Chavez for energy and space exploration, but for building weapons capable of hitting within the United States. This is as dangerous a deal as missiles to Castro during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The deal comes at a time when Uncle Hugo’s popularity in Venezuela was sinking faster than the Titanic - thanks mainly to the dictator’s turning Venezuela into a Marxist totalitarian state with the populace slowly starving to death. If Putin and Russia would stay away from Chavez for a while, the Venezuelan people would have had a chance to overthrow the whack-job. In Putin’s defense, you can take the man out of the KGB, but it’s nearly impossible to take the KGB out of the man.

Looks like the Cold war was prematurely declared dead.

Yeah, and it's a shame too, Charles. We have a common enemy, although Russia seems more willing to exploit the problem rather than allying with us to end it.
