"If you end up freezing (Venezuelan assets) and it harms us, we're going to harm you," Chavez said, turning his words to U.S. President George W. Bush. "Do you know how? We aren't going to send oil to the United States. Take note, Mr. Bush, Mr. Danger."
"I speak to the U.S. empire, because that's the master: continue and you will see that we won't send one drop of oil to the empire of the United States," Chavez said during his weekly radio and television program, "Hello, President."
Personally, I think we (US) should just stop importing from Venezuela. It would be expensive and cause prices to jump in the near term, but frankly, I'm just stick of this lunatic. We should just cut all ties with him, seems that's what he wants anyway.
