Hmmm, Why Does the Roosevelt Corollary Come to Mind?

QandO really demonstrates the problems of Zimbabwe are being duplicated in our hemisphere. There is much more, this is only the introduction:

Maybe its because they both have "z's" in their name, but for whatever reason, the winner of the Moammar Gadhafi Human Rights Award, Venezualan El Presidente Hugo Chavez, has decided that land redistribution is the way to go in that benighted country.

If you're not familiar with the Zimbabwe's disasterous attempt at this very same thing, you might want to read through this blog to refresh your memory. Robert Mugabe did exactly what Chavez is considering, and the results have destroyed Zimbabwe's economy.

Of course, wrapped in the arrogance in which most socialists cocoon themselves, Chavez obviously believes that the idea is sound, it just hasn't been executed properly.
