venesuela to attck the UNITED STATES??????

Unread post by 100 » July 24th, 2006, 1:21 pm

MOSCOW - Russia has struck a deal worth more than $1 billion to supply fighter jets and helicopters to Venezuela, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said on Friday.

“The contract was concluded ... for the delivery of 30 Su-30 fighter aircraft and the delivery of the same number of helicopters,” state-owned Rossiya television showed Ivanov saying.

“The contract is for a sum in excess of one billion (dollars),” Ivanov added. The two sides announced weeks ago that they were working on the contract.

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez is buying the high-performance Sukhoi fighter jets to replace his government’s F-16 jets. Washington, D.C. has banned U.S. arms manufacturers from selling to Chavez, saying he is a dangerous autocrat.

The United States has asked Moscow to reconsider the aircraft contract.

Former soldier Chavez says he is preparing his armed forces for a U.S. invasion. He has already taken delivery of a big consignment of Russian Kalashnikov automatic rifles.

The Venezuelan leader is due in Moscow at the end of July on a tour that will also take in Argentina, Belarus, Iran, Mali, Qatar and Vietnam.

Venezuela attacking the U.S. would be suicide.

Chavez to Sign Major Arms Deals in Moscow

Chavez to Sign Major Arms Deals in Moscow


Loading... The Associated Press
By HENRY MEYER
July 26, 2006

I want to thank President Putin for his firmness in cooperating with increasing Venezuela's defense and security Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Wednesday that his oil-rich nation will sign major arms deals in Moscow to acquire Russian fighter jets and produce Kalashnikov assault rifles, and he slammed U.S. criticism of the weapons sales.

Chavez said contracts to buy Su-30 jets and set up Kalashnikov rifle and ammunition plants in Venezuela would be signed Thursday in Moscow, the Interfax news agency reported.

'I want to thank President Putin for his firmness in cooperating with increasing Venezuela's defense and security,' Chavez said at Moscow's Vnukovo Airport. 'We have thwarted the goal of the empire of the United States to disarm Venezuela.'

'Those who are launching bombs against entire cities in Iraq this very day, they criticize us because Venezuela is buying defensive weaponry. They have no moral right to criticize,' he said.

Chavez, who has become a thorn in Washington's side with his anti-U.S. rhetoric and policies, is to sign a deal worth more than $1 billion for about 30 Su-30 fighter jets and 30 helicopters, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said last week.

The United States underlined its opposition to the sale Tuesday and urged Moscow to reconsider the contracts. U.S. State Department spokesman Tom Casey said the arms purchases exceeded Venezuela's defensive needs and 'are not helpful in terms of regional stability.'

Ivanov tersely dismissed the U.S. demands, saying that 're-examining the contracts is absolutely excluded,' news agencies reported. The Foreign Ministry had said Monday that Russia's military cooperation with Venezuela was 'in strict compliance' with its international obligations.

Chavez, a leftist former army lieutenant colonel who has frequently warned that the United States could invade to seize control of his country's rich oil and natural gas reserves, arrived in Russia on Tuesday for a three-day visit.

He has used surging oil revenues to modernize Venezuela's military, signing multi-billion-dollar defense deals with Russia and Spain. Venezuela earlier agreed to buy 100,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles.

The Venezuelan president has courted foes and critics of Washington in what he calls an effort to create a global counterbalance to U.S. domination. He has crafted a socialist trade block with Cuba and Bolivia, signed a series of deals with Iran and supported North Korea's right to test fire missiles.

On his way to Russia, Chavez visited neighboring Belarus, where he met with authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko, who shares his strong anti-U.S. views.

Chavez, who next heads to Qatar, Iran and Mali, is also seeking support for a non-permanent U.N. Security Council seat. The United States is lobbying to block the bid, backing Guatemala instead. The General Assembly will decide the issue in a secret ballot in October.

Chavez had planned to travel to North Korea, but later took it off his itinerary.

America is going down. We allow so much freedom that our citizens have the freedom to be as stupid as they want. I think in the future when scholars look bakc in history, America will be an example of the downfall that can happen when a government allows its citizens too much freedom. What's everyone else think?

This is only a brief example of my point and I am not giving them in any order of significance or importance.

The fact that we value material possessions so much. You know that saying "He that has the most toys wins". We will drive our expensive cars, live in beautiful homes, spend a cple grand in Vegas etc... while children starve and not think once about it. We are so radically desensitized. We can watch the most horrible things on TV, the news and just go on our merry way. Pornography and sexual deviances that have become acceptable, tolerated. We are ruining the earth. She cant go on forever with us polluting her in the multitudes of ways we do. The worst traits of human nature are not getting any better, only becoming more and more corrupted.
