Chavez: Prayers for Qaddafi, Solidarity for Assad

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said over the weekend that he prayed for the protection of former Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi, and sent his “solidarity” to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

“From here, we send our solidarity to the Syrian people, to President Bashar. They are resisting imperial aggression, the attacks of the Yankee empire and its European allies,” Chavez said.
