Mr. Chavez and the hostages

Hugo Chavez continues to amaze me. I commend him for the humanitarian deed he undertook by continuing to maintain contact with the FARC in Columbia that culminated in the release of Ms. Gonzales and Ms. Rojas. There are over 700 hostages still held by the FARC. Alvaro Uribe reminded the world of it.

Hugo Chavez,though, disappointed me. He called for the FARC to be removed from being a terror organization. This is an organization that has used torture and kidnapping as supposed legitimate means of resistance. Plus, their supposed association with the Drug Cartels is also quite disheartening to say the least. Why Hugo Chavez mentioned this in his annual State of the Nation speech is a mystery to me.

The drama continues..... I
