Free Image hosting by ImageSnap(Caracas, Venezuela) Yesterday, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Russia has offered to assist in nuclear plant development in his nation and he's ready to accept.

"We certainly are interested in developing nuclear energy, for peaceful ends of course -- for medical purposes and to generate electricity," he said.

"Brazil has various nuclear reactors, as does Argentina," he added. "We will have ours as well," he said upon his return from a tour in China and Russia.

Heh, it's a thrill a minute with "peaceful ends" Hugo.
