9. I don't get this...
I've read many times on DU that Hugo Chavez is a dictator who hates freedom or something. You'd think he'd be pro-kidnappers, as he totally hates freedom. I also read that he kills and eats the children of capitalists... did he just want this guy free so he could make more delicious capitalist babies?
