And yet, the liberals will say that it was for “peaceful purposes.”
Must be some HUGE turkey.
You stole the thought right out of my head, thar. ;)
Once Russian ships are providing courier service throughout the globe, there will be far less detection of “suspicious” cargo to places like Cuba, Nicaruagua and Venezuela.
It is possible that these “tractor parts” will be used for weapons. Probably, these weapons will be sold to or given to FARC, which, in turn, will use the weapons to kill our allies in Columbia. I don’t believe that this has a threat to America, but it still is quite erie that Venezuela is now in the fight, on the side of terrorists. Hello 6th communist nation (or at least a vicious dictatorship)
From National Public Radio (NPR), August 29, 2006:
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been visiting countries such as China, Iran and Russia as part of an effort to build a 'strategic alliance' of interests not beholden to the United States. He considers the United States his arch enemy.":
From the Russian News and Information Agency, July 27, 2006:
"'I am determined to expand relations with Russia,' Chavez, known as an outspoken critic of what he calls the United States' unilateralism, told the Russian leader, adding that his determination stemmed from their shared vision of the global order.":
From WorldThreats.com, July 29, 2006:
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":

"The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [Jodie Evans] has bundled more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money."
Revolution interview with ("Peace Mom") Cindy Sheehan: October 29, 2005:
['Revolution' is the official newspaper of the Revolutionary Communist Party]
I’m sure her son would be so proud of her/s - she should be ashamed of herself!
Good Links. Thanks.
Yet how many millions of fools in our country actually believed she (and the movement) was “anti-war”. Hard to be an anti-war pacifist when you’re giving interviews to the Revolutionary Communist Party, and hanging with Hugo Chavez.
Except for the Democrats such as Reps. John Conyers (D-MI), William Delahunt (D-MA), Ed Markey (D-MA), and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who has actually advocated beefing up Chavezs military. Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM) and Ex-Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA) have also reportedly cozied up to Chavez.
