Iran and Venezuela: An Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend!

This is a strange duo – Iran and Venezuela.  The main reason for their friendship ostensibly is – an enemy of my enemy is my friend!  In some ways such alliances where China, Iran, Venezuela, Nigeria seem to be working together are in some ways fueled by Bush’s policies… where he has created a chasm between the world and the US!!

Iran has awarded Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez its highest state medal for supporting Tehran in its nuclear standoff, while the fiery leader urged the world to rise up and defeat the United States, state-run television in both countries reported.

Chavez said on Sunday that US President George W Bush is so evil that he must talk to the devil, and he condemned Israel for what he called the “terrorism” and “madness” of its attacks in Lebanon, Venezuelan state television reported.

Iran awarded the medal to Chavez to show its gratitude for his “support for Iran’s stance on the international scene, especially its opposition to a resolution by the International Atomic Energy Agency,” the Iranian station said.

In February, Venezuela opposed an IAEA decision to report Iran to the UN Security Council over its disputed nuclear programme.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad presented Chavez with the Islamic Republic Medal in a ceremony at Tehran University.
