Venezuela President Hugo Chavez meets Libyan delegation
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says a delegation of Libyan officials is in Venezuela to seek ways to end the conflict in the North African country.
The Venezuelan president has proposed talks between the rebels and the government.
He said he would try to garner support for a peaceful solution.
President Chavez is a close ally of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and has condemned what he called the “indiscriminate bombing” of Libya.
And of course, it’s easy to figure out what he thinks about Syria as well.
On Monday, President Chavez expressed his support for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, blaming “terrorists” for the protests in the town of Deraa.
The protests have been met with deadly force by the Syrian security forces.
Syrian human rights organisation Sawasiah says more than 400 civilians have been shot dead in the government’s campaign to crush the month-long pro-democracy protests.
I can understand that America caused quite a bit of bad shit to happen around the world over the years, but dictatorial douchebaggery should still be called out for what it is, regardless of who happens to be sponsoring it. And such blatant oppression as Qaddafi’s and Assad’s is made even more reprehensible by its defenders.
