Expansionist dreams for Chavez?

Hugo establishes his commie street cred in this photo with comrade Fidel Castro

Venezuela president Hugo Chavez has been meddling in Nicaraguan and Peruvian politics in an effort to prop up communist political candidates in South America, according to this report.

Of his support for resurgent Nicaraguan communist Daniel Ortega, the article says:
Chavez has openly backed Ortega, saying he would like his "friend" and "brother" [read: "comrade" --ed.] to win Nov. 5 presidential elections.
Couple that with this AP report via Fox News in which Chavez threatens to seek "indefinite" re-election, and it appears we've got a growing problem to our south.

Update 23:14, 6 May 2006: Evidently, "indefinitely" means 25 years in commiespeak.
