Relations between Colombia and Venezuela worsened after Colombian President Alvaro Uribe “forgot” to congratulate his Venezuelan counterpart with his 56th birthday on Wednesday.
Chavez, who had been “waiting for any kind of gesture, no matter how small,” took to the national airwaves on 1AM Thursday morning, accusing Uribe of being a “heartless and inconsiderate man, oblivious to other people’s feelings.”
“After cutting all diplomatic ties, increasing army presence at the border and almost completely killing trade with out brother nation, I hope that Mr. I-Am-Too-Good-To-Send-You-A-Birthday-Present Uribe understands that the only way for me to further deteriorate relations is to actually start supporting the FARC,” Chavez said from the presidential bedroom.
Despite several attempts by Colombian media, Uribe refused to publicly comment on the latest plot twist in his country’s relations with Venezuela.
“For God’s sake. So I forgot. Big deal,” Uribe published on his Twitter account just before lights at Bogota’s Nariño Palace went out again.
Venezuela’s sort-of socialist Head of State and Colombia’s sort-of conservative President have had troubled relations since Uribe assumed power in 2002.
