One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.


"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez cemented a closer alliance with Russia on Thursday, recognizing two pro-Russian rebel regions of Georgia as independent and securing arms supplies and loans in return."

"Chavez's move to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia is a rare diplomatic success for Russia, which has tried for over a year to persuade its allies to follow its lead and treat the two small regions as sovereign. Only Nicaragua had agreed so far."

"Venezuela from today is joining in the recognition of the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia," Chavez told President Dmitry Medvedev through a translator at the Russian leader's residence outside Moscow." (Reuters Article)

Dear Leader is viewed as a joke by the Russians (and many Americans).

If you were Medvedev, why wouldn't you sell arms to Venezuela?

The "Leader of the Free World" is a paper tiger.
