Hugo Chavez has died but apparently his death is not going over well, even though it was expected. The former President died on Tuesday after battling cancer. He had not been seen in public since after surgery in 2012.
According to reports, Chavez's VP is calling out the enemies of Venezuela (including the USA) by saying that they gave the now deceased 58-year-old cancer as a way to make him ill and basically knock him off.
"We have no doubt that commander Chavez was attacked with this illness," VP Nicolas Maduro said. "The old enemies of our fatherland looked for a way to harm his health."
Chavez himself said that the US was responsible for his cancer and Maduro even said that it was similar to the death of Palestine's Arafat who was thought to have been poisoned by his Israeli enemies.
It's kind of crazy to think that Hugo Chavez was given cancer somehow -- whether he was injected with the genes or something else -- but with government being so corrupt, it wouldn't be surprising at all to find out that there is a way to do so.
Do you believe Chavez was "attacked" by the cancer virus?
