"I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet," Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day.

    To match Special Report AIRBUS/LEAHY

    The Single Aisle A320 production line is seen at the Airbus facility in Finkenwerder near Hamburg in this file picture taken October 21, 2010. Airbus sales chief John Leahy is one of the most prolific salesmen in industrial history -- a relentless chaser who with irreverent wit and the discipline of a politician has amassed a backlog of plane orders worth half a trillion dollars. More than anyone, the American is responsible for lifting Europe's Airbus to the number one slot in global sales. Leahy represents a flavour of raw capitalism that many Europeans are not by instinct happy to embrace. In France, where Airbus is based, Leahy has little to do with the Parisian elite and is in turn largely ignored by them, which may explain why he has yet to receive such common Gallic honours as the Legion d'Honneur.

    A man holds a pig on a leash while sitting outside his home in Santiago de Cuba December 29, 2008. As Cuba prepares to mark the revolution's 50th anniversary on Thursday, people complained about some factors and praised others in Cuba. When asked what changes they would like to see, most Cubans say they do not want a return to the capitalism in place before the revolution. Mostly, they call for tweaks to the socialist system, with a focus on economic need, not political reform. REUTERS/Claudia Daut (CUBA)
