Chavez: Colombia Plans 'Aggression'


hosted.ap.org

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez on Friday accused neighboring Colombia and the United States of plotting a military "aggression" against Venezuela.

Chavez warned Colombia not to attempt a "provocation," warning that it would trigger a decision by Venezuela to cut off all oil exports.

"In that scenario, write it down: the price of oil would reach $300, because there wouldn't be oil for anyone," Chavez said. "The invaders would have to step over our dead bodies."

Chavez said the United States and the Colombian government "don't want peace in Colombia because it's the perfect excuse to have thousands of soldiers there, the CIA, military bases, spy planes and who knows what other trash operations against Venezuela."

I would imagine that CIA drug money is paying this. Therefore it can't be true.

I think Chavez would fit in here on ATS. maybe someone ought to invite him.

Really, I'm not joking in the least. He's about 2/3 paranoid, he has a great deal of mistrust for our , and other, governments, and he seems like a person that I may not like but would really like to interact with. He's perfect for this place.

No matter what the history of the United States in Latin America is, Chavez is still a psychopath.

All he is doing is creating a boogie man to distract his people away from the food shortages that are starting to hit in some places in the country, and his the news reports that he is using the National Guard to confiscate grocery delivery trucks so he can keep the army fed.

Hmmm.... Creating an artificial boogie man to keep the people distracted from the problems at home... Sure glad that thing never happens in the US........

hmm interesting.. in light of the recent resurgence of the Guyana/Venezuela border conflict, I'm wondering if perhaps a plan is under way to make Chavez feel "surrounded"??? Chavez may not be just be suffering paranoia, perhaps a true conspiracy against him is underway..

Hmm, sounds strangely alot like our leaders here in the states. Creating false-flag terrorism alerts so that they can ram through domestic spying packages and take the focus off their special-interest serving rape of the nation. Seems like deja vu.

When 80% of a population is under the poverty line it is time for major social change. That's what Chavez is doing. By nationalizing oil, healthcare, energy, and even the telephone, he is removing the profit and giving the people what they need in order to catch up with the world.

Why then does the US oppose this?

The PTB can't have him pulling out of the world bank with all those oil reserves.

I think Chavez kicks a**.

He certainly seems to care a heck of a lot more about his fellow countrymen than our leaders do. I agree with NGC-He would probably fit right in here with most of us and be well recieved.

I think some socialism would be great for a small country like that.

The globalists want to rape and pillage that poor country while doing nothing for its inhabitants.

The US interest in Columbia is significantly influenced by the Drug trade and the US is most definitely a co-conspirator player in that game. The so called War on Drugs is a scam, and we all know how money has been laundered by the US though the Colombian drug trade. Remember the Contra affair??? If one takes a closer look at how much US Black finding goes into Columbia there is clearly more to the story. The CIA, DEA, NSA and a multitude of US military operations are ongoing in Columbia. Not all of it is about Narco trafficking.


Chavez has reason the be concerned. The US tried to have him removed and failed, much like they did on a few occasions with Castro.

Interesting that Chavez takes food from his citizen's mouths and puts them into his soldier's mouths instead. Although, if he didn't do this, what exactly would happen to his country? I mean, weakening his army for the sake of his people sounds like a good idea, if it weren't for the fact that they have oil reserves that left unprotected or poorly protected would give enemies a chance to easily invade and take those resources from Venezuela. And considering how much flack Chavez is getting from the U.S. for his socialist agenda, I wouldn't be surprised at all if that's exactly what would happen and the United States had a big hand in the operations to rape and pillage Venezuela of it's oil.

Are you serious? It's hard to tell if you made that comment in a joking manor. Sounds like something a brainwash victim might say just before he signs up for the army to go fight Reds.

EDIT: your not serious... lol.

well all i can say about this is, that if colombia starts a war with venezuela/chavez then ..... theres your WWIII ..... because colombia will be backed up by the U.S ... and guess who is gonna back up chavez??? no one other than his very good friends over at IRAN,Bolivia,Cuba and maybe Brazil and Argentina...... i say maybe because i haven't seen much bonding down with them and chavez.. but iran,bolivia and cuba all hate the U.S or are Anti U.S and they will most defently back up chavez. and the U.S knows this so...unless the U.S wants to start a WW i don't think there is going to be no attack.

Chavez: Colombia Plans 'Aggression'

I saw that on yahoo news. Curious how the title wasn't "Chavez: Colombia and US Plan 'Aggression'" since the body text described it as such.

I agree, but that's why the US is using a puppet-state to do it. The connection to the United States will be deflected for a while as a whacko conspiracy idea.

I wonder if the less considered resource, coc aine is the major motivation there. Some serious money worldwide being made. Just a thought.

I don't know what to think here.

While I'm sure the current administration is quite hostile to Chavez, I'm not at all certain that they intend to confront him at the moment. Their immediate concerns are in the Persian Gulf. For this reason alone I find Chavez's claims suspect, as much as I distrust the junta running the US right now.

Chavez himself is problematic: while he's gained quite a bit of admiration for his willingness to oppose US hegemony, he's also very autocratic and ambitious, as well as ideologically blinkered.

It wouldn't shock me if he has decided it was time to export his revolution abroad by force - especially considering his recent failure to grab more domestic power via referendum. Wars are great for political leaders looking to consolidate their power.

One is reminded of the old Hitlerian tactic of using a nonexistent "threat" to justify aggressive military action - a tactic Mr. Chavez's nemesis Mr. Bush has demonstrated rather recently, in fact.
