Report: Hugo Chávez in Critical Condition In Cuban Hospital

By Adrian Carrasquillo
Published June 25, 2011


Jun 17: Hugo Chávez poses for a photo with Fidel and Raul Castro from his hospital room in Cuba.

Hugo Chávez extended stay in a Cuban hospital is because he is in critical condition, according to a report in El Nuevo Herald.

The Venezuelan president, who was last seen in public June 9 and last heard from on June 12, on a phone call with Venezuelan state television, was said to have been treated for a pelvic abscess in Cuba.

During the call Chávez said that medical tests showed no sign of any "malignant" illness.

But according to the report in El Nuevo Herald, Chávez finds himself in "critical condition, not grave, but critical, in a complicated situation."

The Miami newspaper cited U.S. intelligence officials who wished to remain anonymous.

Chávez silence has led to chatter and speculation in Venezuela that the socialist leader is actually suffering from prostate cancer. Intelligence officials could not confirm a diagnosis of prostate cancer but Chávez family did go to Cuba in the last 72 hours, according to wire service EFE.

Chávez daughter Rosinés and his mother Marisabel Rodríguez "urgently" left the country and headed to Cuba in a Venezuelan air force plane.

Cuba's state media website, Cubadebate, released photos on June 17 that showed Chávez posing with Fidel and Raul Castro in his hospital room. Chávez smiled for the camera in a track suit, while a frail-looking Fidel clutched Chávez arm.

Before the report that Chávez was in critical condition, his brother sought to reassure Venezuela that he was recovering well.

"In response to all the rumors, I can give faith that the president is recovering in a satisfactory manner," Adan Chávez, who is a state governor, told state television Wednesday. "The president is a strong man."

Adan Chávez added that "it's not clear" when his younger brother would return home, but said the president is expected to leave Cuba within 10 to 12 days.

Possibly to stave off rumors of bad health, Chávez personal Twitter account went active on Friday, for the first time in 20 days.

"I'm here with you during the hard battles every day! Until victory always! We are winning! And we shall win!" he tweeted in Spanish.

I don't know the reference but that's clearly Sean Penn as a sad emo. That makes me happy. As does Hugo Chavez' imminent death.

Well not really. I never felt threatened by the guy. He called out the US for conspiring against democracy, and he was technically in the right. It's just that no one cared. The US picked a side in your little series of coups, it happens, deal with it, whiny.

But still, he and Bush and Ahmadinejad were 3 of a kind. They were living breathing political cartoons. I'll miss that to some extent.

He made us look like assholes (man!) when Robertson suggested we might ought to assassinate him.

I think what Robertson meant to imply was that this guy isn't worth our attention and we could basically fart and it would be the same as opening a dialogue with him. Then he opened his stupid yapper up and the spotlight was on us all of a sudden. Religious people should keep their boydicksuckers shut when it comes to politics. Chavez was a zero who was desperately trying to get play in the media, and Robertson gave it to him.

History has proven its not a good idea to assassinate foreign heads of state, as their family might demand some payback.

Bbbbbbbuuuuutttttt, he's wearing a snazzy looking track suit in that photo!! Doesn't that mean he's athletic and fit and in good shape? :rolleyes:

Sean Penn's been VERY buddy-buddy with Chavez the last few years.



The pic is from an upcoming artsy-fartsy movie where he's playing an aging goth rocker. Actually doesn't look too bad though.

It would be a shame if he died before Obama had a chance to apologize on behalf of America to him...

OH WAIT...

Whew. If that was an old picture of that fucking faggot Penn, I'd be real disappointed in myself for not ever having referenced it before now.




Here's the deal with Chavez and the USA. Like I said, we did try to assassinate him before, he's not lying about that, he does have a legitimate reason to hate us and make as big a stink as he possibly can. It's just that he's made such a name for himself and-- Venezuela? Where the fuck's that? It's the place Hugo Chavez is. He's talked so much shit about the US in the last decade that he's made himself a global celebrity. And what I'm saying is it's completely unfounded. We should have let this cartoon character yap himself out, in obscurity. But we've got our black ops guilt, so our media hyped him too.

That movie looks like it might be good. Judd Hirsch is playing a prominent Jew in it so maybe Ant will have to update his impression. Also Bono's daughter has a starring role in it.

We import almost as much oil from Venezuela as we do Saudi Arabia, so I'd say he's slightly above your typical Banana Republic dictator. And he needs to be kept an eye on. He altered their constitution a couple of years ago so he could basically be the dictator for life. Best thing that could happen is he dies of seemingly natural causes like this.

Oh I see where you're going with this. Did we get 'im? I hope we got 'im.

Nothing on cnn in the last 2.5 hours so it's bullshit, officially. Oh well.

Cartoons can't die when they're still all cartoony-like. It just wouldn't be right.

It would be interesting if it turned out the CIA slipped him a Polonium mickey in his drink, like the KGB did to Alexander Litvinenko.

If things are really bad, I wouldn't be surprised if he instead went the way of Canadian socialists and ended up in an American hospital for treatment.
