I'm not sure why anyone would look to external remedies for the situation ("let's just blow them up; they're the bad guys!") when it's obvious that the imbalance from which all this arises comes from within us first. That is what needs to change, if peace is ever possible.

Actually I'm for changing that imbalance myself. I'm pretty pissed at mankind!
And I am firmly in the tank for peace, so we agree!

Look, the US does not intend on invading Venezuela. Chavez is just following the dear leader of North Korea by telling his citizens that the US is going to invade or attack or whatever. It works to keep the people of North Korea and Venezuela in line. Nothing more to it than that.

Chavez is a crazy dictator just like the nut over in North Korea and Iran. Venezuela would be crushed in about a week if we did ever want to do something.

Two Venezuelan soldiers shot in latest border tension

CARACAS, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Gunmen have killed two Venezuelan soldiers near the border with Colombia in the latest incident fueling tensions between the Andean neighbors, Caracas said on Tuesday.

A gang of four men on motorbikes ambushed the two soldiers at a checkpoint in Venezuela's western state of Tachira where Colombian rebels, paramilitary militia on both sides and drug-trafficking groups all operate.

Local army head Franklin Marquez said the killing of the soldiers, both shot in the back, could be vengeance for a recent crackdown on criminal activities in the area.

Venezuela deploys 15,000 more troops to border with Colombia

CARACAS, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Venezuela announced Thursday a supplementary deployment of more than 15,000 agents of the National Guard to six border states amid alleged invasion of Colombian irregular groups.

The troops would be deployed to the southern states of Amazonas, Apure and Bolivar, and to the southwestern states of Barinas, Tachira and Zuila, Venezuelan Vice President and Defense Minister Ramon Carrizalez told the press on Thursday.

The deployment, called "Sentinel Operation," aimed to strike illegal mining and combat the presence of irregular groups in the Venezuelan territory.

Colombia turns to U.N., OAS after Venezuela war talk

BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombia said on Sunday it will appeal to the U.N. Security Council and the OAS after Hugo Chavez, the fiery leftist president of neighboring Venezuela, ordered his army to prepare for war in order to assure peace.

For months Chavez has said that a military cooperation pact signed last month between Bogota and Washington could set the stage for a U.S. invasion of Venezuela from Colombian territory.

The United States and Colombia dismiss that idea, saying cooperation is aimed strictly at fighting drug traffickers and Marxist insurgents within Colombia.

The powers that be worship one G.O.D of profit comprised of Gold, Oil and Drugs.

Its funny how on one side our mouth we complain about Obama, the US Government and the PTB but on the other hand some of us still buy into the MSM promoted "anti American" stories spun by the MSM.
Fundamentally much of the anti americanism is against the American govt and not necessarily its people.

I look at this guy Chavez and why is he on the US Shi# list ?
Well for starters, Venezuela has the 7th largest oil reserves in the world and the US OIL companies pretty much controlled/owned it.

He's out of favor with the CIA and the US Govt because he actually carried out the ousting of big oil and their corrupt politicians from his country.

But i do recall that for the last couple of heating seasons when Oil prices had skyrocketed Chavez had donated affordable heating oil to the elderly to heat their homes(many of which were WWII veterans) here in the US.

Granted there were political motivations behind this but on the other hand why didn't we see millionaires David Rockefeller or Daddy Bush and/or his son GW stepping up to the plate and helping out the elderly (many of which were WWII veterans) to heat their homes then ?!

Brazil, US urge talks in Venezuela, Colombia spat

CARACAS, Venezuela — Brazil and the U.S. urged Colombia and Venezuela on Tuesday to talk out their differences after Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez ordered his military to prepare for a possible war with his neighbor.

The push for diplomacy came as many in both Colombia and Venezuela dismissed Chavez's words as an attempt to distract attention from domestic problems, including the struggling economy and water shortages and power blackouts.
