Chavez Will Mediate Between Gaddafi And Rebels

The perfect choice for a mediator--after all who better to understand the mind of a crazed dictator than Hugo Chavez?
Muammar Gadaffi has accepted an offer from Venezuela to mediate in Libya’s political crisis after talks with Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president.

Sources in Caracas told Al Jazeera that Nicolas Maduro, Venezuelan’s foreign minister, discussed the offer with Amr Moussa, the head of the Arab League Amr Moussa and that details of the plan could be announced at an Arab League meeting in Cairo on Thursday.

The plan would involve a commission from Latin America, Europe and the Middle East trying to reach a negotiated outcome between the Libyan leader and opposition forces which have seized control of large areas of the North African oil-producing country.

..."We want a peaceful solution ... We support peace in the Arab world and in the whole world."
Peaceful solution? I suppose they could start by having Gaddafi stop killing protesting Libyans.
