Putin is making mistakes in Latin America. Chavez will soon be tossed by Venezuela's military like Allende was in Chile. They are just waiting for him to become unpopular with the poor. The military has dreamed of retaking Venezuela since they lost power in 1958 and Mr. Chavez and his hapless opposition is giving to them on a silver platter.. Ortega in Nicaragua is a pedophile who molested his step-daughter Zoilamerica Narvaez for years. Most of his former Sandinista comrades are in the opposition now. Latin America could be a huge export market for Russia and Putin is correct to pursue trade opportunities there just as the U.S. tries to pursue similar opportunities the former Warsaw Pact and former republics of the USSR. On the positive front Russia has correct relations with Brazil and Chile. Most of these countries will want Russia to open it's markets more to their products though.
Somehow, I get the impression that things have gotten beyond mutual cooperation. The gameplan now is to find any possible way to antagonize the United States. Remember, the USA and Venezuela were allies until Hugo Chavez came to power. Before Chavez, there was never any talk about the USA "invading and stealing their oil." Why? Because it has all been manufactured by Chavez in order to gain popularity and remain in power. Now, all he has to do is say "look at Iraq! we're next!"...and he get's reelected.
If everything works in both ways for their own good-Why not!? Both states support multipolar world (for the better world)and any cooperation among them is welcome! I like mr.Hugo Chavez-he speak his mind and most of the times(majority) he is on target 100%....As a president of Venezuela he taking correct steps in right directions...I am also sure that nuclear plant for peacefull use will be build by Russians there.All up-perfect but they can (and shall) go further than that in future! Its not hard also, to find a friend for Russia among (still) free S.America nations-they do understand themselfs very well! Thanke you!
Addendum: The notes from the meetings on PM Putin's website do not say anything about nuke plants. Maybe it was just something speculative said by Chavez, or maybe I mis-heard the translation (yeah, right). Still going to keep an eye on what is happening down there.
That said, there were some good deals for both the Russians and Venezuelans, in basic infrastructure improvements. If everybody sticks to the same rules, the people there will be better off.

Every nation has a duty and OBLIGATION to defend itself from aggressive militarism by the Anglosphere.
Obama does not care about what Putin does. 1) Putin is a real man and Obama is scared of him. 2) Obama is more interested in monopolizing health care to obtain wealth in order to remain in power. The West is ready for Russia to take it. Not one word in the American press when Russian naval ships went to Cuba and Venezuela.
the problem of Venenzuela president, is that the president is unstable. One day greets any president of Latin America and on the other side speaks evil. I think it's a socialist pirate.
The word pirate in my country means it is not original.
I watched the interview with Chavez today (April 2) and couldn't believe I heard it correctly. Did he actually say there was a possibility of a nuclear power plant deal? Wow, if that is true, then I can't WAIT to hear what the Obama administration says about THAT.
This show deserves a BIG bowl of popcorn.
