Hugo Chavez's Anti-U.S. Voice Silenced By U.N. Vote

Hugo Chavez's Anti-U.S. Voice Silenced By U.N. Vote

When President Hugo Chavez called President Bush the devil at the United Nations he earned ovations, but most nations rejected his unglossed anti-Americanism this week by frustrating his bid for a Venezuelan seat on the Security Council.

The leftist cast the election for one of Latin America's rotating two-year council seats as between Venezuela and the United States, which lobbied openly for Guatemala.

But Chavez, who had hoped to use the seat to be a leading anti-U.S. voice on the world stage, failed to win in any of the 35 voting rounds at the General Assembly and trailed the tiny Central American nation by a margin of 20 to 30 ballots.

We wanted Guatemala, a country that we backed while it killed a quarter million of its citizens.

I sense a synergy.

Oh, you're right quackless, Hugie's a much better choice. He wants the ruination of America AND Israel. THAT'S YOUR kind of synergy.

Duckster you have a point. We could have let the commies have it. They would have managed to wipe out 2 or 3 million. Damn those inefficient death squads!
I left an answer for ya over at Ann's column. I think you'll hate it! :-)
