Chavez sending troops to Colombian border


www.cnn.com

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has deployed troops to areas near the Colombian border and says he is reviewing plans for a potential war as tension between the two nations rises.

"Three nights ago I told the vice-president. It makes me sad, I confess, that I'm reviewing war plans," he said during a phone interview on the state-run VTV network.

I do not condone war and especially not this war.

While the overall prupose for the war is told to us on the outside we can only speculate and investigate into the true behind the scenes causes for such rhetoric and escalation of tension.

If Mr. Chavez makes the decision to attack Colombia we must analyze it for just cause. I don't believe he would use his military for non-immediate threats.

I believe Colombia is voting in a new el presidente in the upcoming weeks...

I've been to Bogota, such a great city! That's actually where my avatar was taken...


Colombia will march on... mainly cause of American support.. I must add.

Attacking Colombia would be suicide. Colombia would crush Venezuela without the US having to lift a finger to help. So this is simply either posturing to deflect attention from his failed leadership or to attempt to influence Colombia.

Er, its a defensive measure to ensure Colombia doesn't attack Venezuela - do you have any idea how offensive and aggressive Colombia has been against Chavez and Venezuela?!?!

ETA:
Unjustifiably so I might add.

But Chavez is only slightly less insane than his buddy Kim Jong Ill, so I wouldn't put it past him. Those FARC rebels will probably go in and cause chaos ahead of the invasion, which could make things easier for the Venezuelans.

What's your news source?

Do you live in Venezuela?

Do you know how much public support he has?

And it starts up again. This is not something new, and I was looking to see what Chavez was doing. It is a ploy to draw the attention of the US away from North Korea and Iran, as neither of its allies are ready to go into war just yet, but the pieces are slowly being moved into place. What many should be worried about is what all Iran and North Korea has shared with Venezula in the way of technology and what raw resources that Chavez has shared with its allies. Chavez has steadily in the past year been carefully building alliances throughout the world to try to build a coalition against the US and its allies, viewing the current adminstration, along with the rest of the world, that the US is weak. What worries me most is that when the shooting starts, it is going to be a multiple strike around the world splitting the US forces three ways as we do not have the manpower, and those countries who do not like the US knows this, at one time, forcing the US to make choices that it can not afford to. So if we go after Chavez, we loose South Korea and possibly Japan, in the process, along with Iraq and Afganistan in the process, along with other targets around the world. If we go after Iran, we lose South Korea and Japan, along with our allies in Latin and South America. If we go after North Korea, we lose in other parts of the world. In short the coalition that is against the US is slowly tighting a vice around the US to make it very difficult.

If Chavez said he would sent a division of paratroopers up my @ss while I'm on a nude beach, I wouldn't bother to cover it, because why should I listen to a PR clown. Seriously. He may be a fine soldier himself, but laughing stock on the international arena.

I can't help but wonder just what Chavez tweets on his twitter in the coming days .

Seeing just how smart he is I am willing to bet that he doesn't reveal any top secret war plans in some fit of anger

Well considering Venezuela's ties to rebels in Colombia why would they not be aggressive? That and the fact they could roll Venezuelas military makes Colombia look down right restrained. Of course they may just be waiting for Chavez to be removed from power from the inside so they do not have to bother. It is very important for Chavez to direct attention to outside threats to at least slow the collapse of his power. At the same time he has to becareful he does not push it to point that Colombia acts and crushes him.

Where's your proof on these ties?

Other than sharing some similar ideology (Bolivarian socialism) - what proof do you have?

Stop watching FauxNews and read a book.

Colombians are subjected to more propaganda than Americans, so I don't think you can take anything they say with much credence. Do your own research.

Just kidding. But you seem to indicate or imply that you have some knowledge on this issue.

Care to share what you know?

Thanks

I do not watch Fox News. However ties between these group is hardly a secret. Ideology has nothing to with it, the rebels are simply a chip to use when dealing with Colombia. Chavez would sell them down the river in a heart beat if he could get something in return for it from Colombia. Of course the question you should be asking is this. Why would Colombia a nation that has made massive strides in becoming a peaceful stable state with a strong economy bother with a a weak failing state if it was not being antagonized? Colombia has everything going for it and tension and conflict is not in its best interest.

The coming New World Order has only a few obstacles left before we get our shiny new one world government. Most notably, those obstacles are Iran, North Korea, Pakistan and Venezuela.

These are countries that TPTB still have not managed to convince about what a glorious thing the New World Order will be. A few months ago, Russia stood with these anti-NWO rogues, but was eventually convinced at the G-20 Summit to join the NWO coalition.

China also has been sitting on the fence about the NWO for a long time, but they have now apparently been successfully bought off by all of the western production that has shifted to China, and now George Soros tells us that China will serve as the model for the NWO.

Yugoslavia and Iraq, as well as the anti-banking Taliban (usury is a sin in Islam) were previously counted among the ranks of the NWO enemies, and we all saw what happened to them. Before them, it was Noriega who was thumbing his nose at the NWO.

Well, one by one, those countries who have chosen to oppose the New World Order tend to go through a re-orientation process. And recently, when Poland's president balked at granting the European Union (a precursor to the NWO) more control over its banking and finance policies, well, he and his banking minister had an accident of sorts.

So I wouldn't put too much faith in the opinions we've been spoon fed about what we are supposed to think and feel about the leaders of these rogue countries. If TPTB wanted to make any of us look like craven, loony nutjobs to the rest of the world, it could probably be done easily in a single afternoon.

Stop trusting what you've heard or seen on the mainstream NWO media, and think for yourselves people.

Colombia is the NWO-proxy state in Latin America. They are only successful because they are the region's headquarters for laundering US government drug money. It is a poorly kept secret to the rest of the world that the US government is by far the world's biggest drug cartel. Wherever the US sticks its nose, illegal drug production suddenly skyrockets. So then, what is the War on Drugs? It is a war by the US government against those foreign governments and independent drug producers who refuse to join the US government's drug cartel.

C'mon folks, this is ATS. There is no excuse for not knowing this basic information. Illegal Drugs 101.
