Chavez says he’s cancer-free


Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said he is free of cancer after returning from Cuba for health checks following four cycles of chemotherapy.

He traveled to the island four months ago to have surgery for cancer there.

“Everything went perfectly. I got top marks, 20 out of 20,” he told reporters.

        Western news said he is dead is that not true? I think the way you refer to some natives of Dominica is more applicable to you. Irrespective of what the western news reports or how western policies are manifested to serve their interest, there can be absolutely no doubt about the character of Muhammar Khadaffi. Didn’t he claim responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing where hundreds of innocen people lost their lives? Didn’t he not live a lavish lifestyle at the expense of the majority who are poor in Libya? Didn’t he execute his own people when they opposed him even before the most recent uprising that ousted him? The rebels who overthrew him were they not Liyan citizens themselves? Did the rebels have to depend on western news to know what was going on in Lybia? I’m pretty sure they did not.Do you know of Al Jahzeera news? The Libyan saw for themselves firsthand what kind of leader Khadaffi was and they finally had had enough. Granted they may have been assisted by the self serving west but that doesn’t take away from all the atrocities that Khadaffi commited. I’m sure you may be saying that the west was who referred to the rebels as “RATS” and said they should be killed. You people in your arrogant bid to continue supporting so-called leaders who supported Khadafi will stop at nothing to make fools of yourselves by mixing apples with oranges. Truth is the west did not make Khadaffi who he was, it was of his own doing and so blaming the western media is just plain idiotic and hypocritical. Ever heard of “live by the sword die by the sword?” or “Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall”

        @ Asterix What the hell does Gadaffi being dead have to do with Chevez claiming he is cancer free? And Nato overthrew Gadaffi not no rebels. France Specials and British SAS been fighting on the ground in Libya DUMMYNICIAN!!!!
