very, very disturbing

Look at the size of this Venezuelan plane that landed on a clandestine airstrip in the Olancho province of Honduras last night. Honduran authorities estimate that the Russian-manufactured Antonov could have transported 4,000 kilos of cocaine (that's 9,000 lbs or 4.5 short tons!). If (and that's a big IF) the plane was used to transport drugs. It is very disturbing to think how much arms a plane this size could have brought into the country. Hell, it could have even transported troops. Then again, this may just be an intimidation tactic Chavez is pulling.
