Venezuela has agreed to export petrol to Iran, in a sign of closer ties between two of America's most vocal adversaries.

At the end of a two-day visit to Iran, President Hugo Chavez said Venezuela would supply 20,000 barrels of petrol a day to the country.

Iran is a major oil exporter but lacks domestic refining capability.

Well well well another chess piece moved!!.... with some US troops already in Columbia (more could follow?) and new sanctions against Iran that will probably attempt to ban petrol imports, which won't get thru' the UN and will end up with a coalition of the willing (US, Britain, Israel, Canada, Australia, France? Germany? Italy?) to enforce it...... will this lead to war between the US (NATO?) and Venezuela?

NATO might do better in a real war rather than this nation building BS in Afghanistan!! After all NATO's purpose's are to defend western freedoms, not nation build backwards countries.

Deadly force: Venezuela's police have become a law unto themselves

This human rights training workshop is part of a new effort by the authorities to rein in trigger-happy officers who gun down an estimated 900 people every year, the vast majority poor young men.

Venezuela has about 65,000 police and National Guard members. The 8,600-strong metropolitan force in Caracas has a reputation for being one of the most trigger-happy.

Venezuela rivals march in Caracas

Tens of thousands of people have marched through the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, in rival demonstrations for and against President Hugo Chavez.

Opponents held a rally against what they called the president's growing authoritarianism.

They were concerned about an education law they fear could lead to socialist indoctrination in schools.

Meanwhile, one government minister told Chavez supporters that 29 more radio stations would be closed, reports said.

The radio closures are part of a continuing campaign against what the government considers to be right-wing media, with 34 stations already closed down.
