CHAVEZ TRIES NEW 'OIL-FOR-U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL SEAT' SCHEME WITH CHINA
Hugo Chavez is doing everything he can to align with China over the Iranian nuke standoff and get himself a seat at the UN Security Council. This week, he's visiting China, with two goals:  Blackmail China into backing his bid to add Venezuela to the UN Security Council by offering to supply 20pc of China's crude oil needs and  Further weaken his country's oil ties to the US, thereby preparing an "oil-as-a-weapon" threat if an Iran-U.S. conflict should erupt.
