Iran And Chavez Seek ‘New World Order’

From the Associated Press:

Iran, Venezuela leaders seek ‘new world order’

By Ali Akbar Dareini, Associated Press Writer Thu Oct 21, 2010

TEHRAN, Iran – The leaders of Iran and Venezuela hailed what they called their strong strategic relationship on Wednesday, saying they are united in efforts to establish a "new world order" that will eliminate Western dominance over global affairs.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and visiting Venezuelan counterpart, Hugo Chavez, watched as officials from both countries signed 11 agreements promoting cooperation in areas including oil, natural gas, textiles, trade and public housing.

Remember how the media laughed at Mr. Bush’s phrase, "the axis of evil’? Still, we would love to read their agreement on "public housing." 

Among the agreements, Venezuela’s state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA said the South American country was forming a joint shipping venture with Iran to aid in delivering Venezuelan crude oil to Europe and Asia. It said in a statement that the agreement for a joint venture also would help supply Iran "due to its limited refining capacity."

Thereby openly defying US and UN sanctions. Of course, neither country has anything to fear as far as facing any retribution. So why not?

Both presidents denounced U.S. "imperialism" and said their opponents will not be able to impede cooperation between Iran and Venezuela.

Iran’s state TV quoted both Ahmadinejad and Chavez as calling their relationship a "strategic alliance" that would eliminate the current global order.

"Iran and Venezuela are united to establish a new world order based on humanity and justice," Ahmadinejad said, repeating his predictions that those who today seek "world domination are on the verge of collapse."

And who are better spokesmen for "humanity and justice" than Messrs Ahmadinejad and Chavez? Just ask any American liberal.

Chavez said this is a time of "great threats" that make its necessary to swiftly "consolidate strategic alliances in political, economic, technological, energy and social areas," according to the state-run Venezuelan News Agency

"Imperialism has entered a decisive phase of decline and … is headed, like elephants, to its graveyard," Chavez said, according to the Venezuelan state news agency…

Chavez also has plans to develop a nuclear energy program in Venezuela and last week signed an agreement for Russia to help build a reactor

Thanks again, Mr. Putin — for both Iran and Venezuela.

Chavez’s trip to Iran was his ninth as president

Iran and Venezuela both belong to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. In recent years, the two oil-producing countries have also set up joint ventures to produce cars, tractors and bicycles in the South American country.

And just look at all of the cars, tractors and bicycles they are churning out.

    Public housing?

    An euphanism for jails, and how to fill, run, or make them effective?

  3. proreason says:

    Well, we don’t want to lock up or execute criminals in the US either, so why should we do anything about criminal regimes that want to get nuclear weapons?

    What could go wrong?

    “Iran and Venezuela are united to establish a new world order based on humanity and justice,” Ahmadinejad said.

    Their new world order will enforce social justice by redistributing the wealth from those who need oil to those who have it.

    If Ahmadinejad finds out that the Pope has also called for a global authority to effect redistributive change and to protect the climate, would he invite the Vatican to unite with Iran and Venezuela?
