Hugo Chavez is nothing if not interesting. Howie is waiting to hear from the Bush White House to decide what he thinks of him (hint, Howie: You don't like him, you're just not yet sure why). Now he is demanding Puerto Rico independence from US protection. Sometimes I think he stays up late at night just trying to find ways to aggravate the Bush administration.
I invite everyone, everyone in Venezuela, to rise up and demand the independence of Puerto Rico and to help the Puerto Rican people in their fight for independence....As for being a colony in this world, Puerto Rico is a Caribbean country in Latin America. We are with you. This fight is as much ours as it is theirs because it has to do with all of our destinies. There will be a world for all, or there won't be a world for anyone.
