Is It Over Yet?

According to Bloomberg News, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, after having “won” a fraudulent election, is feeling his oats.

Ahmadinejad said, after having received promises of shipments of oil from the democratically elected dictator of Venezuela Hugo Chavez, that the debate over Iran’s nuclear program is over. He won the debate, but Ahmadinejad is perfectly willing to discuss with American President Barack Obama other isues of moments – like, the weather.

On his world-wind tour, Chavez dropped by the Venice Film Festival, to see a screening of Oliver Stone’s new film on Venezuela’s Che Guevara, tea shirts to follow. There is no word yet from the prestigious gathering of artists to indicate that Chavez has seen Michael Moore’s newest anti-capitalist film.

Stone said that making the film was a "liberating experience."

In an attempt to counter "the media's attacks on Chavez, the movie shows very clearly the level of stupidity in the kind of broad statements" that are made about the Venezuelan leader, he said.

Sort of makes you wonder whether the West deserves to survive. Chavez and Ahmadinejad are convinced it doesn't. Can they be right?
