the u.s. has tried to assasinate and overthrow chavez for being the only leader on the american continent that doesnt give in to u.s. economic interest. he is bold and to be admired for governing for the people and not the dictatorship of capitalism.
i hope this was not the last time that u.s. spies have been caught because the last thing venezuela needs is a cia triggered civil war.

Obviously you have no idea what you are talking about here, and what kind of a psycho this guy really is...
I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil Oil

Chavez has the power to bring the US to its knees. He is already flirting with the idea of selling Citgo (with no crude supply) and diverting cheap and heavy Venezuelan Crude to China. If he actually pulled this off and Lula and Petrobras didn't come in to save the day we would easily be looking at supply shortages and gasoline well over $5/gallon.

But that will never happen... Chavez needs the US (for now) and the US needs him, so like Saddam until we have a reason to use force to overthrow him we will have to deal with it and take it.

Or maybe it will... Chavez is now threatening Putin style taxation on American Oil companies doing offshore exploration and production, in violation of previous agreements. If Chavez takes away territory that legally belongs to a few American Oil companies I wouldn't think Bush and Cheney would take it lightly. We are building up our troop presence on the Columbian border for the "drug war". hmm

populist bastard, wasting my money to buy votes. He might talk all the shit he wants and refer to the US as badly as he wants, but in reality he's struggling to incresase oil production to sell it to the US.

He knows he can't cut off the oil supply to the US, that will make him run out of money to keep financing his own popular militias and buying people's conciences.

"Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that a woman linked to the U.S. military had been arrested while photographing a military installation, and several U.S. citizens were also arrested for taking pictures of a refinery, signs, he added, that Washington may be plotting an invasion of his country."

That's almost funny, weren't people hassled by police here when photographing at airports? Wouldn't they be hassled by police if photographing a military installation or oil refinery? What's the difference?
