ABC: Has president Hugo Chávez said that he will recognize the results?

AC: With lead. It’ll be a swarm. We are ready and well-armed. We’ll go on motorcycles, cars, or by foot. And, if we see turbulence on the streets, we’ll put on our hoods and bring out the weapons.
ABC: How did you do last week in Barinitas, where three of Henrique Capriles supporters were killed?
AC: Every war has its dead.
Carías, who has “666” tattooed on his neck, asserted that the tupamaros are political allies of terrorist groups ETA and FARC.
