Now why on earth would Prez Santos of Colombia want to be friends with Chávez all of a sudden?

I mean it's the darndest thing.......... Whatever could it be about?

Oh! Wait a minute!!

And then there's this (translated):

August 14th

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos revealed that during his meeting with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chávez, they agreed to advance the creation of a law that allows free trade between the two countries

Later in the note Santos is quoted::
"Personally, as I said so to President Hugo Chávez, recovering this market has a special value... (it is) a market that will always be very important to us."

No shit Sherlock...
