    Hmm, that sounds a lot less likely then. Prostate cancer is mentioned at the wikipedia link, but there does not appear to be conclusive evidence:

    Nothing surprising for me, what kind of a message have you expected from the substitute of the man who blamed US for the Haiti earthquake?

    The government never detailed the type of cancer Chavez had, but experts think it was a soft-tissue sarcoma.

    I never cared for the "cult of personality" thing he had going. And nationalizing industries...whew, what an efficient way to drive investors from your country, and isolate yourself from the international community!

    But I will say this about the guy: I really think he was sincere.

    I thought he was a nut, and he promoted anti-US terrorism and an Iranian ally? I guess he was sincerely an enemy of the US. :uhh:
