You do know that Iran is one of the major drug dealers in the hole world and seeing how you russians have a drug addiction epidemic in your country I don"t think that you want iranian drug dealers as friends.
As for Hugo. Chaburro is the laughing stock of the whole world.

It is if russians want Iran to export more drugs to Russia. Iran probaly has more quality products for the russian drug addicts so those russian junkies don"t need to use that afghan opium all the time.

Ahmadinejad is the iranian Pablo Escobar.

Ahmadinejad can hang few drug dealers but he can only fool the russians by doing that. Iranian government has to be involved in drug trafficking.

Its not truth. Iran is not a drug dealer at all. And I dont see a lot of drug takers here.
As for Hugo - he is a great person unlike politicians from Europe.

That's the problem you see the oposition thinks they are smarter than he is, he's black, a monkey and so on..DON'T UNDERESTIMATE Huguito..It seems he has not done too much in ten 10 years but again wrong...Even Venezuela has a NEW NAME and today after years telling people about the new education law was coming nobody believed it and here it is ( Adan Chavez his brother spent 5 YEARS living in Cuba preparing it , eh ??...Nothing to do now ...He's devil and maybe worst, not brilliant but I tell you again "DON'T UNDERSTIMATE a monkey with a lot of MONEY and people around him in and out Venezuela taking advantage of the situation "

hugo, has no place among the elite, he should be ignored, but as we all know, putinko loves people of hugo´s statue, the more troubles he makes the better for russia, plenty of money to spend, so putinko sells just about anything to him.
we hear the latest, hugo wants to buy some tanks, wonder why ?
perhaps, he plans to make new highways to ride on.
simply put, hugo is a comical figure in this world.

Hugo is not a clown he acts like a leader of a super power. His country is not the one but this means nothing. He tries to unite Latin Amarica, to make some confederation as EU. If he will manage with that task, he will be the greatest politician of this decade. Latin amarican countries are similar to each other and they will do better together. It is very posible that soon we will see United states of Latin America.

Not the truth? Google Iran drug problem. Why do you think that you don"t see alot of drug users? Because most of them stay inside and never come to outside.
They also do drugs in parties and clubs. But if you would try to find drug addicts I"m sure you would find alot of them in Russia.
Russians are as doped up as the iranians or afghans. LOL

Then why do they call him Chaburro in Venezuela? If Chaburro is a world leader then I am the Santa Claus.
Chavez is a lunatic and probaly a drug addict based on few things he has said over the years.

Amaricans failed to overthrow the government of Chavez in 2001 when he was arested by opposition. That means that his peaple like him. They sd because he benished international companies which have been robbing Venesuella for many years. I think he wd do more if he was a leader of more strong country. Have you notice that Chavez do not threat anybody abroad? He just want you not to desturb his country and let it be.

Bush administration did not officially support the coup and there is no credible evidence to support the idea that they were involved in the coup.
Chavez has been constantly threatening Colombia with war.

When he was arested he was bruoght to airport where he saw US military transport planes. Surely they had aranged everything as they did in Urkraine, Georgia and other countries before. I do believe that.
