Submission + - Venezuela Gives Up Nuclear Program (

An anonymous reader writes: Venezuela was planing to develop a nuclear energy program with Russia's help. However the crisis at the Japanese reactors has made Hugo Chavez shit on his pants and he has ordered a freeze on the nuclear plans. He now realizes that playing with nukes is extremely risky and dangerous while before it apparently seemed to be perfectly safe and fun. He thinks the problems in Japan will make other countries reconsider the need for nuclear energy. I wonder if he is thinking about his pals in Iran and North Korea.
