Partners in Crime: Economic Collusion with China Props up Venezuela's Chavez

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has a strong weapon in his tough 2012 re-election campaign against a united opposition lead by Henrique Capriles: a multibillion dollar oil-for-credit deal with China. Chávez’s deal lets China secure oil supplies for its fast-growing economy and gives President Chávez a source of funds that he can use to fund politically popular programs and one that is free from omission — right on time when he is facing a strong opponent that threatens to end his dictatorship. Roger Noriega joins us today to provide clear analysis on the direction the Venezuelan government is taking and how dangerous this coalition between China and Venezuela is for the global democracy.
