Venezuela Recognizes South Ossetia and Abkhazia Independence
With their President's declaration Venezuela became the second country to officially recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
Belarus is the other one - they declared earlier their support of the decision of the Russian government.
"We support Russia. Russia has all the right to defend their own interest," Chavez said in a televised statement.

I agree, B, it is time to stop thinking globally and start thinking locally. How can any country serve its citizens? Each one needs just a few things, security, food, hope. I think those values have been lost in the mania of patriotism and such.
We have become so insecure and divisive, the media tells us who to blame: It is the Jews, it is the Mexicans, it is the neighbors that cause your problems. Kill them and everything will be alright. And mindless people believe them rather than working together to make the smallest thing a little better.
Bulgaria then, should be 4, no make it 5 seperate countries, with each buying arms against the other. Then everybody will be safe.
And the arms sellers are more than willing to help you.
The relationship of Venezuela and South Ossetia and Abkhazia supporting Russian invasion stipulates the awkward foreign policy of Venezuela.
The Venezuela decison leads to the pro-Iranian/Hamas policies that are flourishing in Latin America.
The true defense of the United States is not in Iraq and Afghanistan but the Western Hemisphere proper.
