Don't be so dismissive. Recall that we've been at war with Iraq for the best part of 6 months.
And they're not nearly as powerful as canada. Not to mention the fact that if war were to occur between the US and canada, it WILL be the first time
since the civil war that US civilians have died as war casualties.
Venezuela isn't a country that doesn't pose a threat to the US. they're a huge oil exporter, so the US needs them on their side. Secondly, the
territory of venezuela is very much harder to navigate than Iraq, what with rainforest, mountains and all that.
Basically, shut up. We don't need more war, especially with countries in our own hemisphere.
