HUGO CHAVEZ UPDATE:

We know how Hugo Chavez treats Venezuelans who criticize him: He shoots them.

How does Chavez respond to criticism from abroad? Well, it looks as if we found out the other day.

On Monday, Colombia and Spain both issued strong statements critical of Chavez.

Early on Tuesday, large explosions occurred at both the Columbian and Spanish embassies in Venezuela.

Pure coincidence, no doubt. Go here and here for more. Meanwhile Chavez is blaming the opposition, of course.
