Promising to do more to advance socialism in Venezuela, the hemisphere’s idiot, Hugo Chavez , started on Sunday by announcing the expropriation of land owned by the Venezuelan agricultural company Agroislena and vowing to hasten the nationalization of land held by the British meat products company Vestey Foods Group.
Meanwhile, with his slim 48.9% to 47.9% victory, Chavez is pushing the notion of issuing firearms and training for a civilian militia.
Chavez says the militia should be prepared to defend the country against any threat, foreign or domestic. He also believes the United States poses a threat to his oil-exporting country.
Opponents of the leftist president say the militia is essentially a personal army for Chavez aimed at intimidating his adversaries, maintaining control and keeping him in power.
