They are kidding, right? Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez pledged that they would “unite” forever—after hugging and holding hands in a ceremony at the presidential palace in Venezuela that welcomed Iran’s president. Unfortunately, the fun did not end there. Chávez made a quip about having a bomb by his palace steps. "That hill will open up and a big atomic bomb will come out," he said, while Ahmadinejad laughed. “The imperialist spokesmen say ... Ahmadinejad and I are going into the Miraflores basement now to set our sights on Washington and launch cannons and missiles ... It's laughable."
