Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, after continuous insults and slurs towards the United States of America, or the 'Evil Empire' as he calls it, has taken to imitating one of it's global commercial symbols; or is he just taking the mickey? Enlarged photo HERE. Of course pro-government media Venezuelan media and the chavistas (his supporters) are furious and accuse the empire, the CIA and the oligarchic Murdoch and Reuters media-mogol families of a plot to weaken Chavez, even going as far as calling it "media terrorism". However, it hasn't dampened his drive toward "21st century socialism". [BBC]
