    I am not that interested in the relationship Venezuela and Columbia have with each other. Therefore I am not that knowledgeable about it. I’m not a citizen of either one of those nations. I’m more conserved with America and its standing in the world. At the same time, if Chaves of Columbia bullies other nations in a similar fashion as Bush of America bullies other nations, than I hold equal criticism toward Chaves. It is as simple as that.

    Chavez openly supports leftis guerillas at war with the Columbian government; which, DOES concern the US since we keep the Columbian gov't propped up in its war against the drug cartels.

    Take it to the UN and if the UN does nothing about it, keep your eyes looking south and tighten our borders. While we are at it, bring some of our soldiers home and strengthen our military. If such nations attack us, then we should go to war. Above all, let us not have another preemptive war on foggy evidence.

    He interfered with OUR country by going to black areas and offering free oil. The idea was to stoke hatred of evil whitey who denies you poor American blacks and browns what you need. I'd say, boy, you can give the blacks and the browns all the free oil you want. And then take them back to Venezuela with you. You all can have a multicultural socialist orgy.

    Retired likes to clump all lefties into one bag as the spawn of Satan.

    Some day when he grows up he will realize that the left and right balance each other. If either was in total control this would no longer be free country.

    I wonder if Chavez is still pissed just because someone tried to assasinate him? What a little dick tater.

    Had we played our cards right, we would have access to all their oil and could tell Saudi Arabia to piss off.

    Hell, we are friends with Pakistan, China, Russia, most of the Stans, etc. Why not a little smoozing with Hugo baby before he went over to the Dark Side?

    First off.............. I believe the reporting in this article is bullshit...............using really really bogus buzzword terminology and invoking incorrect scenarios..................leftists in other cultures do not mean the same things as in our country's terminology...............:rolleyes:

    Chavez is a typical populist demagogue who is trying to turn the country back to the 60s. He is failing, inflation is soaring and shortages are occurring because Hugh is attempting to deal with the problem by implementing price controls, with the typical responses. Under his rule, output from PdVSA, the Venezuelan national oil company, has declined by about 25%, and last year, the country's oil receipts fell by 5% even though oil rose to $100. The country has a worse relative fiscal deficit than America.

    Now, to divert attentions from the problems at home, he is rattling sabres with Colombia. No surprise there.
