Posted on 09/04/2011 6:32:51 AM PDT by SunkenCiv
Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba continue to be the staunchest supporters of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega have both declared that they will not abandon Gaddafi in this time of crisis. Chavez has actually stated that he will continue to recognize only his friend Gaddafi as the legitimate leader of Libya, whereas Ortega has already offered him asylum...
According to the Venezuelan paper, El Universal, the fall of Gaddafi's mean the defeat of Chavez. "At a time when even the Arab League has expressed its full support to the Libyan Transitional National Council, the Venezuelan government is the only administration that has publicly deplored the fall of Muammar Gaddafi regime," El Universal writes. Professor Demetrio Boersner, an expert in foreign affairs and former Venezuelan ambassador, told the Venezuelan paper that Chavez has been supporting Gaddafi so feverishly that his fall will be a "political defeat for him vis-à-vis the country and the international opinion." In Boersner's view, the toppling of Gaddafi is therefore a "geopolitical blow" for Chavez and for his political ambitions, "because Chavezism pursued the goal of creating a global alliance of nationalist socialism in Third World countries under the rule of autocrats."

This op-ed and analysis comes off a little non-professional, but covers everything very well.
Pass the Popcorn ping.
America’s Liberals and their politicians still support Venezuela,Nicaragua and Cuba.
Hopefully, they’ll be next to fall.
So does anti-American POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama along with his crony minions, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Muslim, Louie Farrakhan. And....in addition, our African Muslim POTUS is an avid advocate of the “Muslim Brotherhood” who with Obama help and guidance, has now control over most of the Middle East countries. Folks, the Arab Spring was the Obama swing to radical Islam control!! Iraq soon goes to Iran and....Afghanistan goes to Pakistan. Obama, not only does he destroy the USA economy, he is on a path to destroy these United States of America!!! What a guy!!! (Boycott His Speech Next Thursday Evening!!!)
And, considering the opposition, so do I BTW.
While it is impossible for anyone to say with certainty that the red area is "controlled by Al-Qaeda", the red area contains a population of probably less than 100,000 people and the orange area less than 500,000.
This is one of the least populated areas in the world, with the fewest resources. The red area contains no settlements larger than 12,000 people and the largest town within 200 miles of the red area is Timbuktu, with 50,000 people.
There are understood to be fewer than 500 armed Al Qaeda operatives in the orange area (perhaps no more than 250), which is larger than Texas.
For comparison, the tribal area of Pakistan which most observers agree is really controlled by the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, has a population of 4 million.
