Chávez prepares himself to the war against USA, a war that only his megalomaniac mind can see. But, of course, the weapons are for … a media war.

PresidentChavez is expected to meet with his Russian counterpart Thursdayevening in the Kremlin. Speaking during the day at the opening of aLatin American cultural center in Moscow, the Venezuelan leader said hedoes not rule out the development of nuclear energy in his country. Ina swipe at the United States, Mr. Chavez also said American troopsshould leave Iraq, and that Iran has a right to nuclear technology.

Mr. Chavez says that Iran has the right to a peaceful atomic energy industry, because it is a sovereign state.

His Moscow agenda includes the possible purchase of Russiandiesel-electric submarines, armed with missiles. Mr. Chavez is alsointerested in buying the Russian TOR-1 missile defense system.

Last year, Mr. Chavez signed a deal with the Kremlin to purchase $3billion worth of weapons, including helicopters, fighter planes andsmall arms.

But Mr. Chavez said weapons are not the aim of his visit.

He says his priorities are culture, ideas and cooperation in energy as well as the military.

From Newsvine:

The head of the International Monetary Fund will step down in October for personal reasons, it was announced Thursday, about six weeks after the upheaval at the helm of its sister institution, the World Bank.

My family circumstances and responsibilities, particularly withregard to the education of my children, are the reason forrelinquishing earlier than expected my responsibilities at the Fund,”he said in a statement to the board of the 185-nation lendinginstitution.

De Rato, 58, a former Spanish economy minister, toldthe executive board of the 185-nation lending organization he wouldleave in October after the IMF’s annual meeting.

He was due to end his five-year term in May 2009. He succeeded Horst Koehler, now Germany’s president, in May 2004.

Uff, whatever the people surrounding him says, I really believe he is returning to the next Spanish election campaign. The exact date is not known though, although it could be next October or a little later, in March 2008.

He was a magnificent MP, a terror for PSOE because of his very well-organised brain and his bitter but calm answers. I really would like him again in Spain as Minister, if it’s possible. 😀 [He also made errors, the biggest one in communication policy…].

If you are using Linux you can download the new Google Desktop for Linux.

h/t El Mundo.es.

More information here.

It does not have the sidebar though -at least not in my PC 😀 -… 😦 But for the rest it goes right.

And Apple has released a new version of its Safari for Windows, that goes better that the last one. But if you are going to write comments in Spanish, it’s better that you do nottry it yet, as if you write an accent they are going to be cut!! 😉 But, in general, it goes smooth and it does not have major problems…
