Hugo Chavez All Smiles With America Now That Oil Prices Are Sky High

Despite the fact that Hugo Chavez once called North America "The biggest menace to our planet", he's adopted a much more "chummy" tone with America according to this recent Reuters article:

"Whoever the next president is and whatever party they are from, we aspire, we are anxious, that 2009 start with a new level of relations...We are not a danger to the United States, for the love of God, completely the opposite"

It's pretty obvious that Hugo is going to need more cash to fund his wacky socialist revolution, and we Americans are hopelessly dependent on the oil. Just like buying half-a-bottle of whiskey from the crazy homeless man on the street, Caveat Emptor.

Sorry About That Whole Supporting FARC Thing
