7:41am Latin American leaders who have long been friendly with Gaddafi - such as Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Cuba's Fidel Castro - are being noticeably silent on the revolt in Libya and its violent suppression, Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman notes. Though Castro has suggested NATO might be planning an invasion of Libya, neither he nor Chavez has gone as far as Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega and offered actual support for Gaddafi.Only a monster could not feel sympathy for the poor people of Libya under the heel of the monster Gadaffi. This shows that Chavez, Castro, and Ortega are like Gadaffi in mouthing claims of "for the people" or "democratic" but they are sleazy and vicious people who use others for their own personal glorification. They have no empathy for their own people. They are not democrats. They are social parasites.
