FORESHADOWING:

Rivals for U.N. Council Seat Reach Deal to Back Panama (Associated Press, November 2, 2006)

Guatemala and Venezuela agreed Wednesday to withdraw from the race for a seat on the U.N. Security Council and support Panama as a consensus candidate, Ecuador's U.N. ambassador said.

With the backing of the two countries, Panama's election to a two-year term on the Security Council is virtually certain.


There's a good lesson there for the Venezuelans: they too can have the seat once we've regime changed them as we did Panama.

Yeah, but Chavez actually won an election. Noriega never did.

Chavez won according to thePeanut Brain from Georgia. The rest of us have doubts, since his folks did the counting.
