I should also mention there was a Women for Peace rally hosted by the Syrian government. You can find it via Google or via my blog if you would like to expose why these people support some of the most dictatorial regimes in the world, then attack us as “fascists” whenever they get the chance.
Now why on Earth hasn’t the Syrian government allowed anti-government demonstrations but allows a rally that brings “peace in our time”? This is just typical quite similar to Cuba hosting this conference, but I bet ya Cuba doesn’t allow any conferences on calling Fidel Castro a war criminal against the Cuban people.
There’s a report from Chile that Chavez wants to take Venezuela to the road of Cuba and likely even worse, the road of Zimbabwe.
