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: [1] 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 [2] 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.
