Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who for years has had tense relations with neighboring Colombia, has warned of worse ties and even possible military hostilities if Bogota's ex-defense chief Juan Manuel Santos wins the presidency.

A victory by Santos in the May 30 presidential election "could lead to war" in the region, said Chavez on his "Hello Mr. President" weekly television and radio broadcast.

Yes indeed. And lets not forget the link between North Korea, Iran and Venezuela.

I think if Bush was still around we'd be hearing of a new "axis of evil" right about now.

These three countries are obviously very linked. I don't think you reasonably could attack one without attacking all three. And thankfully this might have given some pause to the USA. It can ill afford to open up so many more fronts.

The question should be if Santos does when the war, who will through the first punch?

Well I seem to remember something about the US military under Obama spending $46 million to establish a new base in Columbia so you'd think they would.

There was also always the assumption that "AUC" the paramilitary forces in Columbia worked very closely with the US Delta force.

So one might assume the interests of the US government and some factions in Columbia are closely linked.
