Venezuela and France

I've Been Thinking:
France has just offered Venezuela a very sweet deal.
France offered to provide Venezuela with nuclear technology, to build power plants and even to provide other, more advanced, nuclear technology.
Venezuela said "no."
Because one, pretty obvious, hitch came with the deal.
Actually, France came up with a very good idea.
Chavez and Ahmadinejad have a very close relationship. And France has a better relationship with Venezuela than does any other Western European country or the United States.
It could work. Venezuela could actually speak to Iran in a way and on a level that could be very convincing.
But it would also be problematic. Chavez does not want to do the Western world's bidding and be an arm of his sworn adversary, the United States.
Besides, Chavez does not think that he needs the French because he thinks he will get all future technology from Iran after they finish developing the technology.
As much as it pains me to say this, the French are starting to act and sound like world leaders.
