While pitching one of his petulant fits, Venezuela’s simian prince, Hugo Chavez, let fly some information about one of the Cuban dictatorship’s profit centers.
CARACAS (Reuters) Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez ordered on Tuesday the “intervention” of Caracas’ international airport to make it a profit-making business for his socialist government.
The term usual refers in Venezuela to the state takeover of a privately-run business, but in this case Chavez appeared to be referring purely to a change in management as the airport is already run by a body under the Ministry of Transport.
“It’s a big airport, how come it does not make a profit?” Chavez said of the Maiquetia airport, which lies on the coast just outside the Venezuelan capital Caracas.
“Cuba’s Jose Marti airport gives the Cuban government $100 million each year for its operations, planes coming and going. But Maiquetia gives no profits,” he added in a TV address.
As a self-professed student of Fidel Castro, Chavez wants to emulate his professor and reap huge profits on the backs of the Venezuelan people and the country’s resources. Like his mentor, the simian prince of Sabaneta insists that the country provide him with a profit, and a healthy one at that.
There is no doubt the Castro regime is none too happy about Chavez broadcasting their profit margins to the world. And especially now when the regime’s business partners, apologists, and lobbyists here in the US have been working so diligently and investing huge amounts of money to convince everyone that increased revenue to the Cuban dictatorship is not increased revenue to the Cuban dictatorship.
The Cuban regime, however, is the only one to blame; they should have known that apes have never been good at keeping secrets.
