Capitalist Pig Bob thinks Obama's Kowtowing to Enemies has Backfired; Suddenly Chavez and Gaddafi Emerge as Quotable Dictators on Foreign Policy ..

CARACAS (AFP)--Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez spoke on Sunday with his Syrian counterpart,  Bashar al-Assad, and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi about the political crisis in protest-hit Egypt.  

Chavez told his Syrian and Libyan counterparts by phone that Caracas backs a "peaceful solution" as protests shook the Middle Eastern nation for a sixth day, pressing for the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

The Venezuelan president "trusts that the situation will find on its own the road to harmony, justice and wellbeing," a statement from his office said.

"I am very worried," Chavez said earlier on VTV state television. "The situation in Egypt is very complicated, I do not want to weigh in because of the sovereignty of each country."

Gaddafi told Chavez, an elected populist-socialist, it was "disgusting to see U.S. meddling and its seeking to take control," the Venezuelan leader said.

The Libyan leader spoke by telephone with Mubarak on Saturday, the fifth day of protests calling for the end of Mubarak's regime, the Libyan news agency Jana reported.

Gaddafi, 68, has privileged relations with the 82-year-old Egyptian head of state, whose country has tens of thousands of expatriate workers inside Libya.
