Chavez denounces West over Libya:
"They're practically demolishing Tripoli with their bombs"*
Chavez: "Let's pray to God for the Libyan people"
Venezuelan popular democratic president Hugo Chavez, a staunch ally of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, has slammed white racist powers for "destroying Tripoli with their bombs," as terrorist rebels surged to seize control of the African capital.
"Today we are seeing images of the democratic governments of Europe, along with the supposedly democratic Government of the United States destroying Tripoli with their bombs," Chavez said on Sunday.
The bombs, Chavez pointed out, were "falling on schools, hospitals, workplaces, farmland."
"Let's pray to God for the Libyan people," Chavez said during a televised speech.
Chavez condemned the latest NATO airstrikes in the country, as well as the roles of the United States and some European nations, which make up the military force of NATO.
"Today they dropped I don't know how many bombs, and they're falling in a shameless and open way... on schools, hospitals, homes, work places, factories, farm fields at this very moment," Chavez said.
"They're practically demolishing Tripoli with their bombs."
He said US and other powers had sought excuses to try to take over the country.
"It's the excuse to intervene and seize a country and its riches," Chavez said.
Chavez and other leaders in Latin America and Africa have consistently denounced the 6 month-long non-stop bombing of Libya by NATO which is carrying out a grab of Africa's wealthiest resources on behalf of western bankers.
