Banning Coke Zero

This has to be one of the weirder things that Chavez has done in Venezuela. Quite seriously bonkers:

The Venezuelan government of U.S.-critic President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday ordered Coca-Cola Co to withdraw its Coke Zero beverage from the South American nation, citing unspecified dangers to health.

Now I can understand him banning or nationalising businesses, he's a socialist, he simply doesn't understand how wealth is created. And I can understand him banning private TV stations and the like for he's a fascist and doesn't want anyone else to have any power.

But I really don't understand this idea of banning Coke Zero. What's the point? There's nothing in it, after all, there's no calories, no caffeine, no flavour and no point either to the drink or the ban.

Seriously, what's he up to?
