    Re: Chavez: US Weapon Test Caused Haiti Earthquake

    Luke 21:10 Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and
    kingdom against kingdom.
    Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in
    various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
    "great earthquakes" - no, I am not one of those who has the end of the worrld all figured out, together with a complex time frame, but do you remember they had just had an earthquake in Northern California? Worth some thought?

    No no, nationalizing vast sectors of the economy is not evil, but as I've said, moronic .

    And I bet Venezuela is a progressive, modern, liberal and democratic society where opponents are not silenced when they don't toe the government line. Furthermore, there is absolutely no indoctrination of the youth in order to toe the government line:

    He does? Even in his own questionable elections quite a bit of people were against him and even his own people (who see that they have a cluster**** on their hands) have avidly spoken out against him.

    All the while Venezuelan hospitals are underfunded and starved of resources...

    Consequently, many of the Cubans assigned to work there have fled, as it doesn't make any sense to sit in a jungle with no infrastructure and try to take care of the sick without an actual hospital.

    apparently Chavez does not understand the difference between an explosion of an underground weapon and an earthquake in regards to seismographic renderings.

    This is the seismograph from IRIS for the Haiti earthquake:




    Now, let us see what it looks more like the 1994 Indian Nuclear weapons test, or an Earthquake?

    No, we're all convinced that Hugo has a few nuts loose. No one is doubting that (well, some will stick to the belief that he's the best thing to happen since sliced bread.)

    Apparently the man thinks that Halloween is some sort of an attempt to scare the Venezuelan children.

    Yeah... maybe not just loose screws... more like missing whole components .

    It's time for Chavez to be committed to a lunatic asylum.
    Nice story, but factually incorrect, I'm afraid. The accusation didn't come from Chavez but from Russia. Chavez may have repeated it, although I've just followed the trail from Spain's right-wing daily, ABC's website and the report they attribute to Chavez, on Venezuela's Vive channel just isn't there. I'm not saying it was never there, but certainly isn't now. ABC is Chavez' No.1 critic in Spain and not famous for it's even-handedness. It wouldn't be the first time they put an anti-Chavez spin on something he's not responaible for.

    The original report came from the Russian Northern Fleet after a tour of duty in the Caribbean.

    Rather than being smug and superior at the antics of a tin-pot dictator, there should be a bit of concern that the Russian's are beginning to rattle their Cold War swords again.

    Unless, of course, the report is true.

    Re: Chavez: US Weapon Test Caused Haiti Earthquake

    Chavez' ramblings could be explained by his self-admitted, daily use of coca leaves, the derivative of cocaine.

    Venezuela's Chavez swaps coffee for coca in speech

    1 of 1Full SizeCARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez switched from coffee to another stimulant during a speech on Saturday -- he popped a coca leaf into his mouth and chewed it while defending the use of the plant.
    Bolivian President Evo Morales, an advocate of the Andean nation's indigenous coca growers, brought Chavez coca leaves while in Caracas for a summit of Latin American leaders allied with Chavez.

    "I knew you wouldn't let me down, my friend, I was running out," Chavez said as he received the leaves from Morales during the televised summit. He broke one in half and chewed it, drawing applause.

    "Capitalism and international mafias have converted (it) into cocaine, but coca is not cocaine," he said.

    Opposition leaders this week said the leftist Chavez, famous for speaking for hours on end, should take a drug test after he told legislators he chews coca to keep his energy level up.

    The anti-U.S. leader said this month that every morning he chews "coca paste", a highly addictive substance made from coca leaves that serves as a base for cocaine and is sometimes smoked -- not chewed -- by drug users.

    Chavez appeared to have misspoken, meaning instead to say he chews coca leaves.

    Indigenous groups in the Andean highlands have for centuries chewed coca leaves to boost energy and ward off hunger.

    Before winning the presidency in 2005, Morales helped organize Bolivia's coca farmers and openly opposed U.S.-backed coca eradication efforts. Continued...

    Re: Chavez: US Weapon Test Caused Haiti Earthquake

    The amount of actual cocaine in unprocessed coca leaves is marginal and certainly not sufficient to cause the psychoactive effects related to a standard dosage of cocaine. It's curious that caffeine, despite also being a powerful stimulant used by 90% of U.S. adults, is somehow "mainstream" and acceptable while those dirty injun crops that an Aymara like Morales and a mixed-breed like Chavez chew are evidence of their mental instability.
