I like how he keeps side stepping direct questions and starts in on the US Israel relationship

PATHETIC

Almost as pathetic as Obama and western world leadership sidestepping their most important questions. Why single Chavez out? He's no where near as bad as Obama, and the leaders of most of the European countries.

He does make a point on the holocaust.

The media keeps saying that they deny the holocaust ever happening, which is NOT TRUE.

What they are saying is that there have been several disgusting parts of humanity like the holocaust and they all should be condemned, that's FAR FROM denying the holocaust.

It's like the media ridicules these presidents for not treating the holocaust as we do in the US (Which I believe to be because we are taught that the holocaust was the worst and unique, where similar slaughters have occured and are occuring now but are not treated as heavily.)

It seems to me that we, the United States are denying other genocides even more than the iranian president and the venezuelan president are denying the holocaust.

It feels as if we are taught this because isreal is the united state's ally. What about the great purge of stalin under soviet russia? Very similar, but covered less than one day in schools? Russia was the united state's cold war rival.

It seems as if they want to indocrtinate us with views that support the united states political situation.


I just hate how the media ridicules valid statements and they smile at you and treat it as if you agree with a valid statement that is generally not for the united states position, you are a dictator, or anti semantic, they hope that in fear of being ridiculed, you would blindly agree with them.

very true post. I think you meant to say that Russia was U.S.'s WW2 ally though, not cold war ally.

To me, Hugo Chavez seemed like a pretty good guy although on some issues I may disagree with him. I also don't know how legit that assassination story was but if that is how it happend then that is pretty interesting. I really never thought about the holocaust thing the way he explained it and it really made sense.

Are you serious? A pretty good Dictator is what he is, the little Castro, the man who will NOT surrender power, who overturned term limits so he can stay in power and silences the opposition (to include the media).

I'm sorry, but the real holocaust numbers are even higher than 6 million.


Some scholars maintain that the definition of the Holocaust should also include the Nazis' systematic murder of millions of people in other groups, including ethnic Poles, the Romani, Soviet civilians, Soviet prisoners of war, people with disabilities, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, and other political and religious opponents.[3] By this definition, the total number of Holocaust victims would be between 11 million and 17 million people.[4]


This was the largest massacre in known & recent history. It even has a large error so can't really be argued against by requesting exact figures. The proof is the disappearance of all of those people with the witnesses stories. On top of that the documented evidence, photos of bodies etc, concentration camps, mass graves - all purportrated by the Jews according the Ahmadi.

It's not about questionning the number of deaths, it's the Islamic propaganda perspective of Jews being the blame for everything, therefore they are very similar to the Nazi's.

Ahmadi talks nonsense, and that's the perspective from a lot of Iranians. Even a lot of them don't get fooled by his BS anymore.

People like Chavez talks so much nonsense that after a while you may actually begin to believe it, similar to Ahmadi's speeches.

Chavez is just another dictator that changed the laws so he could stay in power for longer, and closes down all opposition media. They're all the same, they all think they're special and they will be loved, but they are just narcissists hungry for power and attention - in the end they all fail!

Just another piece of garbage in the ever growing collective heap. I'd give more time to a pet rock than this guy should ever be allowed. You can always learn something from a rock.

He may be a dictator and a socialist but he seems like hes trying to do good for his people. I don't know much about him but I am just judging from that interview.

I haven't seen this interview, but i like Chavez. Yes that's right, i like Chavez.

Why?

Because he is standing up and saying what many other leaders are not. He is laying out the truth and says a lot about many of the things we discuss on ATS and i don't mean conspiracies. He supports the Union of South America and is trying to make Venezuela have a voice. The reason the United States doesn't like him is because he is standing against them, givin them some hard truths and they don't like it.

I also think many Americans dislike Chavez not because that is their own personal opinion, it's because, as with so many other things, the media shows him as "bad" so they just go along with it.

His 2006 speech to the UN General Assembly is a case in point.

Chavez address to the U.N

I don't know whether he denies the holocuast, if so he will lose some of my respect.
