"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Russia Helping Venezuela Go Nuclear


From the Reuters article by Guy Faulconbridge:

"Russia agreed on Friday to build Venezuela's first nuclear power station after talks between Presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Hugo Chavez in the Kremlin.

"Russian nuclear agency chief Sergei Kiriyenko and Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro signed a deal on 'the construction and use of an atomic power station on the territory of Venezuela,' after the talks.

[...]

"Medvedev hinted that Chavez's foe, the United States, might not like the deal, but said that it was peaceful.

"'A deal in the atomic sphere has just been signed. I already know that it will make someone shudder. The president (of Venezuela) told me that there will states who will have different types of emotions about this,' Medvedev said.

"'I would like to underline that our intentions are clean and open: we want our partner the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to have the full range of energy choices, to have energy independence,' he said."

Gee, this sounds an awful lot like what Iran has been saying as they developed their nuclear capabilities. Coincidence?

But don't worry, anyone. Remember that back on 5/19/2008 in Oregon, Obama declared that "Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. [...] If Iran [and presumably Venezuela] ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance."

Well, I feel better knowing that Obama thinks that way about Venezuela and Iran, etc., and that the he's confident that the U.S. can absorb a terrorist attack.

Let us all breathe a deep sigh of relief.
