I am so sick of all this provocation and fear mongering. The US government is as much to blame as Chavez. The US government has been constantly poking around in other countries affairs when they have no buisness doing so, and Chavez is just an attentions seeker.
War is so unbelievably immature, it is hard to find any kind of analogy to describe it. A playground brawl over who is "it" may come close, but at least in that situation the people who have a beef with eachother fight for themselves. In war, thousands and millions die because of a few people and their arrogance. Young, innoncent lives are sacrificing themselves while the almighty leaders sit comfy in their mansions.
Makes me sick.

I say bring it on Hugo. We would slap Venezuela so hard they would wake up in tne 18th century. Well maybe not since his buddy Obama is running the show these days. I would suppose to Marxists would ply nice together, and we know how Obama likes to be submissive when it comes to world politics.

I'm sorry, but this American propaganda that some of you vomit up is disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You've been taught to dislike Venezuela by your idiot box media, and you swallow it like good stoolies.
I'm a Brit, and I've been educated about exactly what has happened in Venezuela. You Yanks don't like it because he chucked your sorry arses out of Venezuela, and took your imperalistic infrastructure away in the name of Venezuela.
Chavez is a hero to the people of Venezuela. The U.S. organised a coup against him, IT FAILED, and now you're all bent and twisted about having egg on your face. He came to power in one of the most democratically effective revolutions / elections in the history of South America. He chucked out the U.S. oil interests, and everything else your sorry country had implanted there, and took it back for the people.
Now I'm not naeve, I know how things work in South America, and I know that Chavez has an iron-clad grip on his country these days. I also know that he will be living a luxury lifestyle. But I'm damn sure average Venezuelans are better off for having the U.S. interests pulled out of their country, and the oil fortunes spent to make their lives better.
Because the 'Economic Hitmen', the 'Jackals', and the PR disinformation campaigns have failed, the U.S. is now responding with military force by-proxy of Colombia and the war on drugs. Typical American tactics. I think Chavez is quite right to make sure his country is tangibly, and psychologically prepared for war. Because with the U.S. having an overt presence in Colombia, that's exactly what will happen.
I sincerely hope that Colombia loses, and that lots of damage is done to the U.S. war machine in Colombia. When will the U.S. government, and it's redneck religious fundamentalist stoolies learn the lesson that the rest of the world will not tolerate this imperialism?
