Hot Air Covers Hezbollah in Venezuela (Part I)

Be sure to check out this report on Hizballah in Venezuela by Clint Taylor Bear in mind that Hugo Chavez recently visited Iran to draft cooperation agreements and recalled Venezuela's ambassador to Israel. Of course Hizballah is going to have a free hand in his country.
Chavez' endearing quote on al Jazeera, 4 Aug 06:
My heart is with the millions of Arab people. Sometimes I feel that I am Arab myself?. I have crossed deserts, ridden camels, and sung with the Bedouins. I learned during these experiences to love and respect the Arabs, who have a place in my heart.

Chavez continually seeks to position himself in opposition to the US and its interests.
