Venezuela's Chavez praises Ahmadinejad's "great victory"

Caracas - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Sunday praised the re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president of Iran as a 'great victory' and condemned nay-sayers who have raised questions about the legitimacy of Friday's election results.

Chavez, who hailed Ahmadinejad as a colleague and close ally, said such critics are 'spokesmen for imperialism.' He congratulated Ahmadinejad personally on the phone on Saturday and the two leaders agreed to meet in the near future.

'It has been a great victory' but it was being 'besmirched' by such critics, Chavzez charged.

Iran's Interior Ministry said that Ahmadinejad had won Friday's election with more than 62 per cent of the votes.

His main opponent, Mir-Hossein Moussavi, who drew huge crowds and was expected to win according to pre-election polls, has cried foul and charged election fraud. Thousands of opponents of Ahmadinejad have taken to the streets on Saturday and Sunday to protest the official results.

Stalwart opponents of American imperialism stick together. Methinks events may not be unfolding according to the gameplan of our new quarterback in the White House.

Hugo Chavez is exactly why Bambi has remained virtually silent. Chavez is the dictator to whom Obama is closest at the moment, the one he “most admires,” and Ahmadinejad is all over VZ. In fact, I read that one of the things the Iranians supposedly resent is that Ahmadinejad gives money and resources to Chavez’ Venezuela, which he regards as his toehold on this continent and his way of destabilizing Latin America. Obama certainly wouldn’t want to interfere with a noble goal like that.
