Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez voiced on Monday once again his support to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and rebutted the possibility of underwriting a National Transitional Council in Libya.

In a cabinet meeting aired during an obligatory simultaneous broadcast, the Venezuelan Head of State referred himself to a letter forwarded by Gaddafi through the secretary of the People's Committee for Finance and Planning Abdul Hafid Al Zleitni.

The envoy met on Monday with Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicolás Maduro. The meeting was also attended by Libyan Minister of Communications and Transport Mohamed Zydan.

In the letter, the Libyan leader asked the Venezuelan government to join efforts against the council.

Venezuelan authorities, Chávez replied, "do not recognize such a mime like the transitional council" which must be composed of "a group of terrorists."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
