Chavez Blames US and EU for Unrest in Iran

After some of the international community has spoken out against the violence in Iran (or at least pretended to) and after president Obama addressed the issue; ut should come as no surprise that self-made arch-nemesis of the US, Hugo Chavez is blaming the US and Europe for the uprising in Iran.

Now... here's a point I'd like to make to President Chavez in regards to his comments:

Just because you didn't like Bush and probably don't like Obama, it doesn't mean that you have to contradict everything that the US has said. If you'd like to accuse the US and Europe of inciting these riots please provide proof because so far certain sources say over 150 people have died and, as far as I know, they were ALL civilians.

Are you saying that the militia that is killing civilians backed by the US?
Or that the Iranian military is funded by Europe?
Or are you blaming the US and Europe because the PEOPLE WANT TO BE HEARD?
Or... are you just being contrary because it's what is expected of you?

Either way... you've managed to stay in power this long, a lot of your people genuinely admire you and some will believe everything that you say, so please, when you are going to blame the entire world for something without providing proof... please be aware that your words can have real consequences for the people living inside your borders.

A word of advice, before you decide to accuse any nation of something like this again without having proof, remember the story of the little boy who cried wolf.

I am continually surprised that anyone has regard for Chavez. He is so blatantly corrupt and persistently negative as to be an invalid source of opinion on world events. I recommend, beside your points, that he make some changes in his own country before he criticizes the 'actions' of others. Perhaps the guilt of his continued exploits is making him resent the actions of the Iranian people. After all, the people of his own country might learn something about the effectiveness of political action against a tyrannical government.

The thing is that many Venezuelans think Chavez is doing a fine job... So as long as he has the support of the people he has the right to lead... Does that make him an authority on world affairs? lol, probably not...

All that being said, there have been instances where anti-Chevaz rallies were held in Venezuela, and the world hardly batted an eye.
