Gaddafi thanks Venezuela’s Chavez for support

Chavez condemned NATO airstrikes in Libya and called the North African nation’s rebel National Transitional Council a “group of terrorists.” He questioned how the U.S. and European nations could recognize such a group, and asked what world powers would do if a similar rebellion were to erupt in Spain or the United States.

“How hypocritical of the empire,” Chavez said, referring to the U.S. government. At another point in his televised speech, Chavez joked that due to the U.S. government’s budget problems, President Barack Obama might need a loan.
