Hugo Chavez May Buy Sub Fleet

"Venezuelan could buy a fleet of submarines as part of its broad-ranging military purchases, President Hugo Chavez said on Thursday, a week after reports his government would buy submarines from Russia.

Chavez, a self-described leftist revolutionary, has sparked criticism from Washington with a string of military acquisitions including Russian rifles and fighter jets which he says are necessary to defend the OPEC nation from a possible U.S. attack."

Hmmmm...I wonder how he can afford this. Also, I wonder why Russia feels so emboldened to sell them to him... (hint: oil)
