Great News: Ahmadinejad and Chavez Still Best Friends

Despite President Obama recently approving new sanctions against Iran that will make it more difficult for the nation to sell its oil, President Mahmoud Ahmadinedjad recently visited Venezuela, where his buddy Hugo Chavez called America the "imperial Yankee."

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dismissed a U.S. warning to avoid close ties with Iran on Sunday, denouncing what he said was Washington's attempt to dominate the world as he welcomed the Iranian president to the Latin American nation.

Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived at the start of a tour to shore up support from the region's leftist leaders, as tough new Western sanctions aim to isolate the Islamic republic and target its vital oil exports.

"A spokesman or spokeswoman in Washington from the State Department or the White House said it was not convenient for any country to get close to Iran. Well, the truth is, it made you laugh," Chavez said in a televised speech.

"They're not going to be able to dominate this world. Forget about it (President Barack) Obama, forget about it. It would be better to think about the problems in your country, which are many," he said.

"We are free. The people of Latin America will never again kneel, dominated by the imperial Yankee. Never again," he said, to applause from his audience at an oil processing facility.

Keep in mind Hezbollah, the most extensive terrorist network in the world heavily funded and supported by Iran, is operating regularly in South America and Mexico.
