Bush vs Chavez, round one?

President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez is on a campaign in Latin America to promote socialism and attack the U.S. in the process, BBC reported.

U.S. President George W. Bush is also on a tour in Latin America and avoided paths with Chavez, while promoting capitalism in impoverished countries. Many of his visits in the Latin American countries were met with protests and marches, some turned violent. He has repeatedly refused to comment on Chavez's remarks.

The AP reported that Bush has not been talking much about the war on terror during his visits in Latin America, where many people oppose the Iraq War. Chavez has been blaming the poverty in Latin America on U.S.-style capitalism.

Both the articles talked about similar information. The AP article talked more about the riots and protests that have errupted due to Bush's visits.
