Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is mocking critics who question his close relationship with Iran by showing off what he calls an "atomic bicycle."
The bicycles are produced in Venezuela under a joint venture with an Iranian company.
Chavez rode one of the bikes during his Sunday TV program and joked about what he called the bicycle's "radioactivity" and offered one to U.S. President George W. Bush.
"What a bicycle! This Atomic bicycle.. does it have brakes?" joked Chavez while cycling around during the television program Alo Mr President!
During the program, Chavez had a live connection with the factory to show the audience the bicycles built in the factory, and then he offered one of them to the US President George Bush.
"My dear friend, president of the United States, I offer you this bicycle, see the bomb. See it... you think that is a bottle of water, no, that's the bomb. We have painted it with ADECO color," Chavez said, referring to the name of the opposition party.

Chavez antics should not be taken lightly. He has a serious relationship with the Iranians, There are weekly flights from Iran Air from Teheran arriving to Caracas, they lack passengers for a serious commercial operation but somehow are filled with freight, this freight leaves Maiquetia (Caracas Airport) to a undisclose location, and of course does not go through customs.
Chavez should not be taken lightly.
