President Chavez brought the house down.
When he said the process in Copenhagen was not democratic, it is not inclusive, but isnt that the reality of our world, the world is really and imperial dictatorship down with imperial dictatorships he got a rousing round of applause.
When he said there was a silent and terrible ghost in the room and that ghost was called capitalism, the applause was deafening.
But then he wound up to his grand conclusion 20 minutes after his 5 minute speaking time was supposed to have ended and after quoting everyone from Karl Marx to Jesus Christ - our revolution seeks to help all people socialism, the other ghost that is probably wandering around this room, thats the way to save the planet, capitalism is the road to hell....lets fight against capitalism and make it obey us. He won a standing ovation.
And at the end of this first clip, Chavez rouses the rabble with more anti-Americanism, too:
I dont think Obama is here yet. He got the Nobel Peace Prize almost the same day as he sent 30,000 soldiers to kill innocent people in Afghanistan.
