Here’s a piece from a Reuters dispatch today on Castro’s buddy, titled “Venezuela says U.S. drug accord not needed: report:”
Venezuela does not plan to sign an anti-drug accord with the United States, local media quoted Venezuela’s top anti-drug official as saying on Saturday, days after Washington criticized Caracas for failing to crack down on drug traffickers.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a close ally of Cuba who has promised to fight U.S. “imperialism,” cut off cooperation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in 2005, accusing the group of spying on him.
The South American nation had promised to renew the accord on different terms but repeatedly postponed signing it.
Raise your hand if you actually believe Hugo Chavez would’ve followed the accord after signing it, and if you are the solitary one who raised his or her hand, I have some nice land in South Florida to sell you.
