I cannot blame Chavez. The man has some "weight" driving him. The reporter should have given him some courtesy, or a little more respect for a
World leader. There are sneaking suspicions that he speaks English very well; as do many of the World leaders.
The questions asked were geared in a deviant nature. Not asking for any positive remarks, but picking straws as to a man's choice in allies, or even
I think Chavez spun it right back at the reporter with the correct view point. What about all the dead on the hands of American leaders? Ahmadinejad
doesn't come anywhere near the numbers of US, or Israeli leaders.
Iraq can be categorized as necessary; with a long stretch, but the USA did create the Banana Republics in Latin America. Chavez touched upon that in
his response to the reporter.
The term Banana Republics came about when the US on behalf of Chiquita Banana, and United Fruit Company among a few others were gaining negative press
in the countries of Latin America. They were basically getting kicked out. So, on behalf of the almighty fruit companies the CIA stepped in outing
the governments, and placing ruthless genocidal dictators.....more, or less...........hence the meaning behind the meaningless T-shirts so popular in
the States;"Banana Republic".
Chavez may not have outed the Fox Reporter to the Monolingual US Public, but to many many People in the World that are multilingual what he did is out
