Stooge Chavez Blasts Blair

UPDATE: A possible reason to the spat

From SwissInfo, MercoPress, The Guardian

Stooge Chavez has decided to personally attack Tony Blair. Why? Because good ol'Tony decided to, during a session of the Parliament of his country, state the following when asked about the Left tendency in South America:
If they want to be respected members of the international community, they should abide by the rules of the international community," he told MPs. "I say with the greatest respect to the president of Venezuela that when he forms an alliance with Cuba, I would prefer to see Cuba a proper functioning democracy." I love Tony Blair for stating this so eloquently and for calling for a democracy in Cuba.
And what did Stooge Chavez respond??? Why "flowers" of course!
"You messed with me, and now you're going to have to put up with me, mister, because from now on I'm going to be paying attention to what you say or do," Chavez said."We'll have to find a nickname for you, like Bush has the one 'Mr. Danger,' because he was the one who opened fire," the Venezuelan president said. I'm sure Tony is shaking in his pants, not! what the heck is this? Sounds like a raped line from The Godfather, "You fuck with me you fuck with my entire family"

"Go right to hell, Mr Blair," he told the prime minister during a speech in western Venezuela, using local slang to deliver the line. His exact words, "váyase largo al cipote", have no direct translation into English. And this is the president of a nation who wants to garner respect? Where are the Venezuelans? How can they allow this?
