Chavez calls Blair 'pawn of imperialism'

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday called British Prime Minister Tony Blair "a pawn of imperialism," accusing him of siding with George. W. Bush against Venezuela. "Mr. Tony Blair is the main ally of Hitler," said Chavez, who has compared US President George W. Bush to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Chavez blasted Blair for saying he'd like to see true democracy in communist-led Cuba, which is Venezuela's closest ally in Latin America.
