El Rey de España tiene cojones

November 11, 2007 at 2:34 am (Idiots, International community, News)

(I apologize for such a vulgar title.)

The King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, became involved in a very public and unprecedented spat with Venezuelan loose cannon and tyrant, Hugo Chávez. At the Ibero-American Summit, Chávez called (José María) Aznar, the former president of Spain, a fascist, and said that a fascist is less than human. The current president of Spain, José Luís Rodríguez Zapatero, intervened in Aznar’s support, saying Aznar was legitimately elected by the Spanish people and was a legitimate leader of Spain. But Chávez would not stop interrupting Zapatero. After the King said something to Chávez, gesturing in his direction and visibly agitated, the King leaned towards the microphone in front of him and said, “Why don’t you just shut up?” (“¿Por qué no te callas?”; note the second person familiar, which in this case is an indication of rudeness). A short while later, the King got up and left the room. He returned, but then left before the Chilean national anthem that closed the summit.

Bravo, Don Juan Carlos!

    “Why don’t you just shut up?”

    El Rey de España simplemente le dijo al simio algo que la mayoría de venezolanos y el resto del mundo civilizado quisieran decirle en su cara

    The King of Spain simply told the ape something the majority of Venezuelans and the rest of the civilized world wants to tell him to his face.

    Senores
    Su rey no tiene derecho para insultar un otro jefe de Estado.
    El Rey debe ser alejado de la politica internacional y dejar la diplomacia a los diplomaticos y hombres del Estado.

    Definitivamente el rey cometio una imprudencia nada diplomática, si chavez grita o se revuelca el deberia como Zapatero guardar y demostrar control y diplomácia para no caer en su juego , tambien recoedemos que chavez y Zapatero fueron elejidos democráticamente , ,,,el rey
