Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said that the tumor removed by Cuban doctors last week was found to be cancerous.

In remarks televised on Sunday, Chávez also denied rumors that that the cancer had spread to other parts of his body. Bloomberg reports:

"Chavez, making his first television appearance since traveling to Havana Feb. 24 to undergo surgery, didn't say when he'd return to Venezuela, where he's preparing to run for re- election in October.

"'As I said in Caracas, it was most likely that the lesion was malignant,' Chavez, wearing a red shirt and surrounded by members of his Cabinet, said on a video recorded March 3 in Cuba and broadcast on Venezuelan state television yesterday. 'The entire lesion, measuring two centimeters, was removed. But almost everything indicated that it was likely cancerous, what they call a recurrence.'"

The AP adds that Chávez also said he would spend several weeks in Cuba recovering, and then start radiation treatment, "without discarding other treatment options," the AP quotes him as saying.

According to Reuters, Chávez also struck a confident note.

"I will live! I will overcome," he said.

The military-industrial cleopmx at the heart of the USA policy has a mission and a life of its own. The use of evil means to accomplish evil goals is not out of the question.The delusion of Americans is that USA is still good and does no harm; the citizens are well informed and that elections are going to make a difference.It is a big stretch to believe that 911 represents an intentional destruction of American lives to American support of sending American boys to war for the interests of the military-industrial cleopmx.Hard to believe that a total outsider like Hugo Chavez could be telling the truth.Hard to believe that HAARP could be used to create earthquakes.Hard to believe that evil purposes are being served while everyone else is lovingly responding to the people of Haiti.It would take a lot of careful digging to find the reality.For the lazy there is platitudes, blind loyalty and happy ignorance.
