MUGABE, CHAVEZ SLAM US AT UN EVENT

Those crazy guys, aren't they adorable together?



And such good public speakers too. They can seize property, redistribute wealth, rig elections, get Jimmy "Dhimmi" Carter to validate said elections, jail political opponents and still find the time to write kick-ass speeches condeming free and democratic nations which, quite frankly, contribute more help to poor nations than they often deserve.

ROME, Italy (AP) -- The leaders of Zimbabwe and Venezuela on Monday denounced President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair as "unholy men," and blamed the United States and other developed countries for world hunger, pollution and war.

Chavez accused what he called "the North American empire" of threatening "all life on the planet," while Mugabe compared Bush and Blair, for their alliance in the war in Iraq, to Germany's Adolf Hitler and Italy's Benito Mussolini, who were World War II allies.

The verbal attacks by Chavez and Mugabe drew cheers and applause from many of the delegates [ed. note: surprised? I'm not]. The organization has 188 members.

Mugabe defended the land reforms as "redressing the past gross imbalances in land ownership which were institutionalized by British colonialism."

Chavez praised Mugabe's land reform, saying the African leader had been "demonized" and that similar reforms were being enacted in his own country. [ed. note: surprised? I'm not]

Brazil's [socialist] President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva brought the focus back to hunger long enough to say: "...poor countries should stamp out the corruption that often diverts aid. 'The poor countries must give an example of honesty, of ethics, so that we truly deserve the solidarity from millions and millions of people who would like to contribute but sometimes are not sure their money will go where it should go...'" I wonder if he realizes that a good place to start on that would be stringing up Chavez and Mugabe?
