President Hugo Chavez announced Monday he would pull Venezuela out of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, a largely symbolic move because the nation has already paid off its debts to the lending institutions.
During Sunday's talks with leaders from Bolivia, Nicaragua, Cuba and Haiti, Chavez predicted that "sooner or later, those institutions will fall due to their own weight."

All trouble Gools and more to come re the US Dollar. Everyone ie Foreign-States will change over, except perhaps Britain.
Britain has not 'officially' changed to the Eurodollar, yet.
All this stuff is going to have some negative effects on our US Partner dollar proximity toward the NWB, I feel.

Good for Chavez and Venezuela they can distant themselves from the corruption in the world bank and the countries that support that corruption.

Don't worry Muaddib we know that Bush will just have to go into Venezuela and liberate them from Chavez.
After we liberate the Iranians first.

Why bicker about one's Nationalism, when you can support a globalist loyalty that unites all the cultures of the Earth. The destruction of borders will become widespread this century, and doing so will make the world a much nicer place to live in for our future inhabitants.

Right, it will all be a much better world after Capitalist countries become more like China, Russia, Venezuela and Cuba... Who would have thought?...
We can have the penal system they have in China, you know if you are caught with drugs you get an automatic bullet in your head...as well as if you are "too pro-democratic", if you belong to certain religions, etc, etc...
That will surely lower our prisons populations if we start implementing the death penalty for lower offenses like China does...
Forget about appeals, in such a system appeals don't exist, you are taken to court and the same day a sentence is given, if you are found guilty they take you outside, put a bullet in your head, and then charge your family for the bullet...
We can also implement Chavez's way to deal with the oposition....oppress the people who disagree with him, threaten every citizen who would think about signing a referendum against whoever is in power....and those people who sign referendums or speak against whoever is in power can say goodbye to their jobs, they will be threatened and intimidated etc.... Not to mention the fact that we can have sharp shooters shooting people who demonstrate peacefully against whoever is in power, like Chavez has done....
It will be great....really, the world will be a better place......
