After Undergoing Surgery In Cuba, Some Are Speculating That Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Is Dead. BBC reported just a momemnt ago that “Absence of ill Hugo Chavez sparks speculation“.

Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, is undergoing medical treatment in Cuba, leading to all sorts of rumors about his health. There are even people speculating that Hugo Chavez is dead.

Is Hugo Chavez Dead or Alive?

As of June 25, 2011, there has been no official confirmation that Hugo Chavez is dead. The closest to a Hugo Chavez death report comes from Wikileaks Argentina, which tweeted:

“BREAKING NEWS! The president of Venezuela Hugo Chavez died in Cuba this morning. 06/25/2011 08:43AM”

Other than one tweet, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of people saying that Hugo Chavez is dead.

That being said, Hugo Chavez is having serious health problems.

One report says that Chavez is in a “critical state of health.”

A Spanish-language report quotes Venezuelan Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Temir Porras as saying that Chavez is “recuperating well.”

Chavez arrived in Cuba on June 8. Two days later, he was treated for a “”pelvic abscess.” There is also speculation that Chavez may be suffering from prostate cancer.

Chavez hasn’t been heard from for several days, adding to speculation that the normally talkative leader may be in poor health.

On June 25, Hugo Chavez and his handlers sent several messages via his Twitter account, perhaps to dispel all the rumors about his health.

    I think there are a lot of people who would like him dead, just as they have been trying to kill off Fidel Castro for the last 50 years. I wish both gentlemen the very best of health!

    Maybe the CIA is moving around him. Making anti-Bushy statements and kicking some yankee asses, made them angry. While I hate that impotent childmolester Castro (America’s lil’ darling for 50 years), I support Chavez. He’s the man who knows a lot and just want better life for his countrymen. Get well, Mr. Chavez!

      Maan, you have no idea of what you are talking about. Maybe you should go off and live in Venezuela (like me) to see what’s really going on in that Devil’s mind.

    I’ve never understood how some people actually admire the poverty and servitude that Chavez seeks for his people. I think it must be taught in our twisted US school system.
