Two Skunks Crash the African Union Meetings
The Anti-American thugs Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad crashed the African Union Summit to gain support for their Anti-American agendas.
They seem to get along well…

Ahmadinejad was a special guest of the host nation, Gambia(?) The Iranian leader addressed the crowds at a mosque for Friday prayers calling for the unity of oppressed nations “despite opposition of the bullying powers”.
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said at the African Union summit that the conflict in Darfur is one of the most dreadful in the modern history.
No surprise, Chavez blamed the African situation on the colonialists… “Africa, with vast human and material resources, was not poor but rather suffering from years of exploitation by the colonialists.”
Well, obviously there were more than the the two skunks at the summit.

This is news… “Venezuela is hoping for African support in its bid for one of the rotating seats on the U.N. Security Council, a proposal opposed by the United States.”
