Chavez calls 9/11 gift for Bush

Venezuelan President has labeled 9/11 attacks on US as "a gift for Bush," saying it enabled the US government to wage wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Hugo Chavez made the statement during a news conference to mark the fifth anniversary of his return to power two days after a 2002 US-backed coup against his rule, AP reported.

"If there were another aggression against us, there wouldn't be another drop of oil for the United States ... We're prepared for it," he said outright.

Venezuelan leader noted the insatiable US thirst for oil resources led the imperialist regime to attack Iraq and also stage an abortive coup attempt against his leadership.

In April 2002 Pedro Carmona Estanga, a Venezuelan trade organization leader, who was in secret league with some army commanders, staged a US-backed coup against Chavez, but failed in the face of mass public support for President Chavez.

As usual, Chavez is right. Like him or not, he is right.

It is the CONTROL of oil that we want, and no wind farms please!!!

(In my area the message was taken--no wind farms.)
