    “”Chavez said he and Penn discussed the question of “why the (U.S.) empire attacks Chavez so much,” saying Venezuela’s oil wealth is a key reason.””

    I find that interesting, I think they have it confused, Bush never called Chavez Satan, Chavez followed bush around on his tour of South America screaming Gringo-go home. I am not a huge bush fan, but Chavez actually makes me like Bush more.

    As for Penn, he is being used, and it’s pretty funny, how he always states how peaceful and great Iraq was before the war, I don’t think an American Actor who makes millions knows what it’s like for the people who lived in fear (and continue to)) I think it is an insult and a slap in the face to those who suffered under the Hussein rule for Penn to say this. I wonder if he agrees with Chavez that shutting down the tv station was the best move for the people, and helps them be more free.

    Penn is free to state his opinions, but he should really think about what he’s doing before he speaks, it’s a good idea if you have a lot of influence with people. It’s one thing to critizice your own president, but it’s completely hypocritical to agree with a president that gives less freedom and rights. Is his next meeting with the great freedom fighter castro?
