Ladies and gentlemen, Venezuela currently has 15,000 Cuban doctors and dentists in the country under the “oil for doctors” program both nations signed onto a decade ago. And those doctors are among Cuba’s best, while Cubans “…have to fork out dollar-convertible pesos – local pesos buy little – to obtain anything other than basic medicines or treatment.”

So the question is: What’s the real purpose for Hugo Chavez’s back and forth travels to Cuba? It certainly isn’t medical.

You don’t really expect a dictator to use the same medical services made available to the peasants do you? It should be perhaps an indication that chavez wants the best for himself & stuff the masses.

BTW – those posters carried by his brainwashed followers, have been subjected to some SERIOUS airbrushing!!
