Venezuela dares US to put it on the terror list

Venezuela is slowly but surely becoming one of the biggest allies of the US. Just kidding.

According to CNN, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez dared the U.S. on Friday to put Venezuela on a list of countries accused of supporting terrorism, calling it one more attempt by Washington to undermine him for political reasons. Chavez said the threat to include us on the terrorist list” is Washington’s response to his government’s successes in the region.

Chavez said: “We shouldn’t forget for an instant that we’re in a battle against North American imperialism. On this continent, they have us as enemy No. 1.”

I like the “on this continent” part. What a way to make oneself a winner!
