In yet one more display of stupidity and showmanship, the increasingly bloated Hugo Chavez is calling for the BRICs (Brasil, Rusia, India and China) – along with the ALBA countries – to stand up and fight for Muammar.
He also urged Gaddafi to continue resisting,
“Nobody knows where Qaddafi is,” Chavez said today in a phone interview broadcast on state television. “I’m sure that he’s very far from thinking about leaving Libya. He’ll resist with what power he has left.”
Chavez, who last month pledged support to Qaddafi and called the armed conflict in Libya the result of “imperial insanity,” said he doesn’t have information on the leader’s whereabouts. He said that by resisting, Qaddafi can lay the groundwork for a lasting peace in Libya.
Hugo isn’t offering any help, though, not even one of the planned “socialist cars“
When asked if he would offer Qaddafi asylum, Chavez recalled a conversation he had with Cuba’s Fidel Castro about the capture of Saddam Hussein after Iraq was invaded. Chavez said Fidel told him that in such situations “what we have to do is win or die.”
Blah blah blah.
The BRICs ignored Chavez’s blather while Gaddafi pulled a Sir Robin,
