Did any one think thaT Hugo Chavez called Bush a “devil” using the UN platform for nothing? Of course not. he had the UNSC seat in mind and one can not lose sight of the fact that in the same speech he also stated that the UN system did nto function becaus ethe US dominated it, though majority of the members are developing states.
He is using the forceful anti – US stance to fortify his credibility as the voice of the majority less developed countries, while the US is backing the contestant in the rage, Guatemala.
This remains the most contested UN election inrecent times.
