Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has died ... this according to Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro. 

Maduro -- who was fighting back tears during the announcement -- said Chavez died today at 4:25 PM.

Chavez had been in Cuba for months, where he was receiving treatment for a mystery illness that turned out to be cancer.

Chavez hated America ... and blamed all of the world's problems on the United States.

To paraphrase Ben Affleck ... Hugo f**k yourself. 

He was 58.

This man certainly was not the world´s biggest problem... But he could not tolerate freedom of the press or opposition. And if he had really cared about Venezuela, he would not have run for president in the last elections. He was too ill by then. He was not trying to free his country from "imperialism", we wanted to do as he pleased using that excuse. As an argentinian, I am ashamed of our goverment for seaking his friendship (or better, his money and oil). Lets hope his succession take place in peace...
