Caracas Plans for a natural-gas pipeline stretching from Venezuela to Argentina are frozen because of lack of political will among the continent’s leaders, President Hugo Chavez said Friday.

“The project is cold, there weren’t any more meetings,” Chavez said during a televised speech.

Chavez, who has championed the pipeline proposal as a means of satisfying the continent’s energy requirements for decades to come, did not blame any South American leader in particular.

The project proposes to carry gas from Venezuela’s offshore reserves through Brazil to Argentina, with branches extending to Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay — a 5,600-mile stretch that would be one of the longest gas pipelines ever built.

The project has met with skepticism from energy experts who say it hinges upon political goodwill because it faces overwhelming economic, environmental and technological challenges.Copyright © 2007, South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Today the freedoms of expression and of information suffered another major set back, directly from Chavez and from his lackeys.

A cadena from Totalitaria

There was a medium sized country that slowly moved towards a totalitarian regime. The move was step by step and the nice people of the country were either cajoled or coaxed into accepting their fate, as a much better fate than associating themselves with the countries of the Capitalitaria federation.

I though about writing such a short naive tale while I watched a few excerpts of the cadena that Chavez imposed on us today. It had been quite a while that we had not had a big cadena by Chavez himself. Rumors had that the legal problems as to whether RCTV international had to pass cadenas or not sowed the doubt and delayed cadenas. But today we got a full frontal offensive against RCTV, and this cadena as a part of the offensive. The initial reply of RCTV was NOT to pass the cadena. Collision course ahead big time.
