Not that much of the world is really noticing it.. which they should.. but that crazy crackpot – Hugo Chavez – has won again in Venezuela! That doesnt bode well for the US as he is working actively for an alliance against the US in many areas….
President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela has won a third term in office, securing a clear lead over rival Manuel Rosales.
With most of the ballots counted, Mr Chavez had taken more than 60% of the vote, officials said.
The president, who has secured the support of the poor by using oil to fund welfare, told crowds his left-wing “Bolivarian revolution” had triumphed.
Admitting defeat, his social democrat rival said he would go on “fighting for democracy” in the streets if necessary.
