Hi, please post a clip of the news article next time, thanks



CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez on Thursday gave the U.S. ambassador 72 hours to leave the oil-rich South American country, saying the measure was a show of support for Bolivia.

Bolivian President Evo Morales expelled the U.S. ambassador from La Paz on Wednesday, accusing him of instigating violent protests in the Andean nation.

The Bush administration responded by expelling Bolivia's top envoy from Washington.

While Chavez says it was in support of Bolivia, I think you are basically right. With a couple of Russian bombers there, a promise to sell Chavez more weapons, and a renewed Russian interest in policing some of the world themselves, he's gonna get bolder. A lot bolder.

So now we play the expelling diplomats game. If Russia were to follow suit, this could get nasty.

Venezuela is the new Cuba. Chavez by his own admission likens himself to Castro. Expect to see Russian missile shields there in the near future.

Ordo ab Chaos crowd again. This is just more unecessary polarization to keep the world under the frequency of fear. Chavez is either part of the NWO crowd or being string pulled by them somehow, it seems to me now.

Venezuela is a massively rich country that dosen't really need anybody, it only has around 35 million people iirc. They, if they were in their right mind, would not care about either Russia or the US.

Of course, on the other hand, there is a lot of resentment in South America for the meddling and totally amoral US international policy, you know, the ones most americans have no idea about.

But still, russian bombers and embassador expulsion? Just more ordo ab chaos, ignore it, it will come to nothing, just international political theatre.

Yeah right, I'm sure the US military is not concerned at all with nuclear capable bombers in Venezuela. Maybe that's why US fighter planes escorted them in?


But really, the SHTF will only happen when Chavez decides to pull the plug on all oil exports to the US. Russia can nuke whoever they want to, but now we're talking money- what really matters. To them.

What the hell of a difference do those make? You have a suitcase nuke in an embassy. You can have an undetected nuclear sub 50 miles from the east coast. You can just drop a few multiwarhead missiles and count the blasts.

What difference do bombers in Venezuela, 1100 miles from the tip of florida, make, when most of europe, in Russia's front yard, has american bases?

Just wake up to the bs.

Agreed on the money thing, which is probably the real reason those bombers are there, a warning to the US that Venezuela's derriere is covered. But that dosen't change my point, the whole oil industry is NWO energy denial for every citizen on earth. We don't need oil. Never have.

" Maybe that's why US fighter planes escorted them in? "

that would probably be on the news everywhere now, since its not and nobody else thinks that's case, I have to tell you that your statement is completely based on fictional thoughts. I highly doubt Russia will, allow American fighters near the bomber, you think Venezuelan airspace will be used by american airforce ?
