Hugo chooses the Iranian option

I’m looking south again. Being the international community has decided that Iran should have nukes by lying their way to them; Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s Castro/Che wannabe, decided he is going to get in the game.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said Sunday his government is starting research into peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

Chávez did not give details, but he has previously said he is interested in developing nuclear power like countries such as Iran and Brazil.

''Brazil has advanced in its nuclear research, nuclear power, and that's valid. Argentina too, and we also are starting to do research and projects in the area of nuclear energy, with peaceful aims of course,'' Chávez said during his weekly radio and TV program Hello President.

Chávez, whose country is the world's fifth-largest oil exporter, has said he is interested in working with Iran to explore peaceful nuclear energy.
