Spain and Venezuela

Spain is selling 12 military planes to Chavez. via Barcepundit and Stratfor.

(I hadn’t heard of Stratfor before, but apparently they are “experienced executive team of intelligence experts and seasoned business leaders.” Interestingly in their story they mention Bush’s “bandwidth” 3 times. New term?)

End of tangent…..what is Spain looking to do here? Increase influence in SA by working with a guy who basically only has influence in Venezuela? I’m not thinking this makes much sense unless they see the wind shifting. I don’t believe it is, though others have disagreed with me. Good luck with that, Spain.
