The usual suspects gather in Havana -Chavez calls for expanding ALBA throughout Latin America :
"The president gave the closing remarks at the first meeting here of the Council of Ministers of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA). The council was created a month ago at the 5th ALBA Summit, a process formed by Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia and Nicaragua."

Fidel, Daniel, Hugo and Evo (Granma routinely refers to political leaders by their first names, so consider this a nod to the customs of the source of this story) have held the first ministerial conference of their fledgling organization. Note that one of their stated goals is to withdraw from the Inter-American Defense Board and set up their own joint military and intelligence agencies. Can you guess who the enemy is?
