I was watching these speeches, and while I can't say I totally disagree with the Venezuelan prez., I thought his words on Dubya, and the gesturing along with them, were pretty funny. Did anyone else catch any of it?

He DOES have a point about Latin America wanting the UN "fixed"; however, the countries that don't commit as many human rights abuses as Chavez have better ideas and better reputations behind those ideas. But sometimes I see Chavez as the ultimate backlash to US foreign policy in Central and South America. If they get a rotating seat on the secuirty council, it's going to be an interesting ride.
Latin America has good reason to see Bush as the devil (and, sometimes, America in general.)
I just wanted to say that I'm venezuelan and that most people in my country cannot stand the president. I know everyone thinks that we voted for him but please remember that over there everything is very corrupt and the govt says what they want. Even if 100% of the people voted for someone else they will still say he won. Basically I just want people to know that he doesn't represent venezuelans. Honestly from all the venezuelans I know we are ashamed of how direspectful Chavez has been and we just want everyone to know venezuelans are not like that. I'm not into politics at all but I would hate for people to think that venezuelans are all like him.
Oh I totally know what you mean, Girlstar! Noriega and Torrijos (and just about eveery Panamanian "president") made the Panamanian people look like weak and crazy people. I would hate for people to think that "presidents" in many Latin/South American countries really demonstrate what the people are like. Politics down there is just not as "lawful" as it is here.
BTW, I wanted to send you my email so you could give me that brazilian (i think it was?) site that you were talking about but I accidentally erased the pm. I'm gonna PM you my info now
taking jm breaks if you don't see me around much
Yes, Sara, these presidents give us a bad image a lot of times. I don't know where Chavez stands internationally or if he has good ideas. All I know is about my country and the complete mess he's created since he took power. Aside from that, however, I agree that south america has the right to be upset at the US, but calling Bush an alcoholic (and Bush, according to what I read hasn't had a drop of alcohol since he turned 40) is unethical and direspectful (and I don't like Bush either).
Anyway, I swear I'm not into politics. I rarely read about it. I only look at the newspapers from Venezuela. (El Universal and Panorama).
Changing the subject, I send you the invitation Let me know if you don't get it bc when my brother in law sent me the invitation he had to send it like 3 times for me to get it. Hopefully you got it.
