2) Audio/Visual/Artistic Element

This video is in interview with chavez. They discuss chavez's feelings about president obama and bush. They also talk about the threat that venezuela feels by the U.S setting up 7 military bases. They talk about all of his feelings about the U.S and they talk about venezuela's alliances with other countries in the world like iran while they argue about that and  why he is allies with them.

3) Creative Piece

President Chavez,

     Currently we are not each on the same page as the other. You have 7 military bases and I feel that is a threat to my country. I think it would be best for both of our countries as well as the rest of the world for us to ally together. Currently you are allied with Iran but it would be more beneficial for all of us if you would slightly adjust what you believe and ally with the U.S

Please consider my offer

Sincerely,

President Barack Obama
