Chavez: 'Reset' relations with U.S.

I think he would help his case if you drank a cup of STFU.
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Hugo Chavez said Saturday he hopes to "reset" relations with the United States at an upcoming summit.

Despite recent criticism of President Barack Obama, Chavez said he wants to bring relations between the two governments back to a "rational level."

"I'll be willing to press the reset button," he said in an early morning telephone call to Venezuelan state television from Iran. "I hope that will be the policy of President Obama."

Venezuela's relations with Washington grew increasingly strained under former President George W. Bush — reaching a low point in September, when Chavez expelled the U.S. ambassador and withdrew Venezuela's envoy to Washington. His visit to Iran is part of an effort to build ties with other countries at odds with the U.S.

The socialist leader has also been critical of Obama, calling him "ignorant" last month after the U.S. president accused Chavez of "exporting terrorism" and being an obstacle to progress in Latin America.

But Chavez said Saturday that the upcoming Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago from April 17-19 could "be the place to reset all types of relations between the United States and Venezuela."

Chavez employed a metaphor first used by Vice President Joe Biden in February, when he said the U.S. would need to "press the reset button" on its relations with Russia.

Russian President Dmitri Medvedev also used the term this week, following his first meeting with Obama. Medvedev said it's time to "reset" relations after years of built-up tension under the Bush administration.

Chavez said he's waiting for signals that Obama is willing to take similar steps with Venezuela. Chavez said that he'll have some questions for the new U.S. leader when they finally meet.

"Somebody needs to ask him what his vision is for the crisis that's weighing terribly on Latin America," he said.

"It would be good to see if something happens with Posada Carriles," he added. "If the blockade against Cuba will persist."

Venezuela has said it plans to reactivate an extradition request for Luis Posada Carriles, a former CIA operative accused of plotting the 1976 bombing of a Cuban passenger plane that killed all 73 people.

Fuck Chavez. He bad mouths the U. S. and now that his country is falling further into the shithole, he wants us to hit "the reset button" and tell him what we are going to do for Latin America? The shitty thing is Obama will play right into this and do God knows what for them.

I'm not surprised and ya, Obama will playinto it if he continues. I bet Obama would shake hands and make "ammends" with just about any country (even Iran) just to be able to claim that diplomacy is the best way... until we get fucked, yet again.
