CNN drops the C-bomb

October 18th, 2010

It’s not the four letter word.

I’m a bit tired of this topic, but this article seems to need a few comments. After announcing a nuclear cooperation with Russian President Medvedev to build a nuclear plant in Venezuela, Hugo Chávez continues his tour of Asia by visiting Iranian President Ahmadinejad. Chávez and Ahmadinejad signed a nuclear cooperation pact a few years ago. Evidence I’ve highlighted in this blog before suggests that Venezuela might be mining and enriching uranium for Iran in a gold mine near Venezuela’s border with Guyana.

The article comes as no surprise to me. One very small detail in the article is worthy of surprise, though. The article calls Hugo Chávez “the communist Venezuelan President”. This leaves me speechless. They would never have printed this a few years ago.
