Russia to sell Chavez fighters and helicopters

That little weasel in Venezuela is on his way to Belarus. He should be meeting with Lukashenka on July 22, 2006. From there he will go to Russia whereupon he will be making this sweet deal (for himself, not us).
Venezuelan President Set To Visit Belarus.
July 21, 2006 -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is due in Minsk on July 22 as part of a tour that also includes Russia and Iran.

Chavez, a strong critic of U.S. policy, is a rare foreign visitor to Belarus, whose president, Alyaksandr Lukashenka, is shunned by Western leaders who accuse him of totalitarian policies.

Chavez is due in Russia on July 25. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said today that Russia will sell Venezuela 30 Su-30 fighter jets and 30 helicopters for $1 billion.
Um, could someone get on the phone to the Ruskies? (If that is an offensive word, tough. We do not believe in the PC doctrine.)

Oh my. I looked at a map to find out exactly where Belarus is located, and they are next door neighbors to Russia. Just what we need. A communist meeting with a communist, selling arms, tieing our hands in other matters, and we are stuck in PC. What would FDR do? What would JFK do?
