Hugo Chavez Creates His Own Hague Tribunal

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is creating an analog of the Hague Tribunal and the Commission on Human Rights. He made a statement to that effect during the show "Hello President". According to him, that proposal has already been supported by Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa. According to Chavez, the action will promote greater independence in Central and South America. This was Chavez's hint that the dictatorship of the West, meaning the United States of America, which rules South America with an Iron Hand, will not achieve a unilateral dictatorship over Central and South America. Chavez points to the number of Serbs which were hunted by the West, often exceeding others involved in the conflicts in the Balkans, including Albanians, Bosnians, and Croats, among others. The action initiated by Chavez is apparently an act of self-defense, especially in view of the possibility of judicial action for the possibility of judging Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi, for shooting at "civilians" with combat aircraft. At the same time, Chavez is concerned about his own fate: Like Libya, Venezuela has large oil reserves, which may be subject to outsider exploitation of more powerful superpowers like the United States.
