That's right. Canada is going to join Venezuala, then we'll have them on both sides. That should keep the U.S. busy for about 2 days.

COOL HAND, imagine you are fighting battle vs. Venezuela in infantry troops. You'd have high chance of getting killed.
Its easy to watch death of human beings and watch war on TV as entertainment. But real people are being killed there.
Well, since I am in the military I would probably be heading there next. Not that I am worried.
If USA gets in war with Venezuela, Cuba would be on its side too, and possibly some other South American countries.
USA could win in theory but it would lose lots of money and people.
And remember, Venezuela is much stronger than Iraq at the time it was invaded (US knew they were almost defenceless).
Now if communist China allies with Venezuela and Cuba, there we have WW3.
I doubt Cuba will side with them since they could not afford to loose all the money that we put into them.

Its interesting if you read the story that Venezuela makes some conspiratorial like claims. Makes you wonder about an NWO connection if that exists, oh and BTW we would pretty much handidly beat S. America, look at the Falklands, we have twice as much fire power and are much closer to home than the UK.

The USA rarely needs to invade South American countries considering how unstable they are.
Normally, just throwing a bit of money and political support behind a protaganist is enough to get the job done.
