Russian bombers land for "training" in Venezuela

"Stalin se queda corto al lado de Chavez!"

Hugo, hermano, casi 70 perciento del pueblo vive en la miseria. Hay mas pobreza, mas inseguridad, y mas corrupción. Hospitales cerrados, escuelas cerradas, regalando el dinero a todo el mundo en vez de invertirlo en tu propia gente. ¿Qué te pasa, Hugo?

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Two Russian long-range bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons will return to base from Venezuela in four days, the Russian Air Force was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying on Thursday.
The bombers, known in the West by the NATO codename "blackjacks", were not carrying nuclear weapons during the flight to South America and will return to Russia on September 15, Russian Air Force commander Vladimir Drik told Interfax.
"There were no nuclear weapons on board these planes," Drik was quoted as saying.
The visit by the Tu-160 bombers is a show of strength by newly confident Russia at a time of tension with the United States after the war in Georgia and due to U.S. plans for a missile defense shield in eastern Europe.
On Wednesday, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said the planes were in the South American oil-exporting nation to strengthen military ties and counter U.S. regional influences.
The planes arrived days after Russia and Venezuela said they would conduct joint naval exercises in the Caribbean later this year involving a nuclear-powered Russian battleship.
