Oxythymous or ophthalmophobic...

Looking forward to the responses to the report published this week from the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) about the alleged relationship between FARC and the Venezuelan and Ecuadorian governments; the Ven embassy in UK had got it's defence to the 'dodgy dossier' in early (before publication!); the government of Colombia has refused to comment (click on image). If you have an hour to spare THIS video is the launch of the report.

The report is based on the study of the computer disks seized in the March 2008 raid by Colombian armed forces on a guerilla camp inside Ecuador; it stresses "that although the Colombian guerrilla arrived in Venezuela long before President Hugo Chávez, its relationship with the Venezuelan Head of State strengthened when he took office in 1999..."Since at least 2000, Chávez harbored the intention of providing financial support on a scale aimed at affecting the strategic balance in Colombia,"

ophthalmophobia: n. - fear of being stared at.
oxythymous: adj. - quick-tempered; easily riled or angered.
