Today's line on Venezuela comes from Shimon Peres, president of Israel

Shimon Peres has been around a lot.  Shimon Peres has had to deal with a lot of crap in his life.  Many toads he kissed and none became human.  So when he speaks about Chavez for a CNN interview as to Ahmadinejerk trip to the ALBA countries, he knows of what kind of character he is talking about.  And he also shows that he is infinitely informed as to the events in the world (the Jewish world conspiracy at play I suppose, would say antizionists in the Chavez camp).  The quote:

"It seems like a joke on history.  To think that [Ahmadinejerk] is traveling to Simon Bolivar's nation is the biggest contradiction we can think of." and then
"[Chavez] maybe a good show on TV but Venezuela did not improve with him.  Venezuela's economy is not better, people are not happier".

Bless you Shimon!

To this we can add the editorial on Correa in Ecuador from the Post as he is receiving Ahmadinejerk (TV showed an arranged support reception in front of Carondelet Palace who makes one wonder about the sanity of the Correa entourage...)
