Chavez: Oil For No One if Iran is Attacked
http://www.payvand.com/news/06/may/1117.html ^

Posted on 05/12/2006 5:27:22 PM PDT by soccer_maniac

Visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said in Rome on Thursday in case of a military attack against Iran, no country in the world would have access to crude oil.

Chavez made the remark at a press conference, adding, “As Iran’s President Ahmadinejad has reiterated, if Tehran would come under attack, oil would get scarce for everyone.”

He also said that the US President George W. Bush should be put to trial at the international court of justice for having launched genocide in Iraq. “For all the horror it has created around the globe in the course of the past century, the United States’ war machine should be dismantled, since under the current conditions it is a threat against the entire mankind, particularly against our children.”

Chavez added, “The North American empire is the most cruel murderer regime that has ever come to power in world history and a serious threat for all nations.”

He believes the death of the United States had better taken place in the course of the 21st century, because “otherwise the entire world would face the threat of annihilation.”

The US would do itself - and the Western Hemisphere - a lot of good if they stopped by oil from this chump.

Chavez is going to re-ignite civil wars in Central America. He's making a big push for that scumbag Daniel Ortega and the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

A reverse embargo of Yanqui dollars, if you will, might starve this SOB out.

We are the United States, we do what we want, when we want, to whom we want, and I doubt that your little pissant country can stop us. For all you know the US may attack you, Mr. Chavez, and you can't stop us, no one can stop us.

We could do it without lifting a weapon.

We buy more of Chavez's oil than any place else (65% comes here)....so we have to stop sending him $$ and start being self reliant (and the libs would scream that we are starving the people of Venezuela not this socialist creep)

After letting letting the lib's dictate how we're fighting the war in Iraq, and the backlash it's cost him politically, do you really think he'd do something about some commie wack-job in Venezuela?

It's been said that the average American hasn't sacrificed anything for the war effort.

If Chavez cuts off our oil supply, I'm willing to change my routine and deal with the results.

He can't be allowed to blackmail us.

If Chavez stops the oil he stops the money. If there is no money there will be a revolt. It is unlikely that Chavez will do anything long term because he likes to breathe and really likes to hear himself talk. That would be hard to do when the peasents put his head on a pole.

Chavez: Oil for no one if Iran attacked

You know it some ways it's funny, in World War II, we had Hitler in Germany, Mussolini in Italy and Tojo in Japan.

Now, we have that Jew-hating Ahmadjihad in Iran, Chavez in Venezuela strutting around with his chin stuck out like Mussolini, and Kim Jong Ill is trying real hard to be another Tojo.

And all three of these mutts are so ronery.

Iran is going to get the big smack down, and I'm willing to bet it's sooner rather than later. I could well be wrong, but I happen to believe that the Bush Administration is allowing this diplomatic doo-dah with Iran and the U.N. to drag on for a while to allow Israel time to prepare for any retaliatory response from Iran (if they sit this one out), or to actively participate in a joint U.S./Israeli operation to take out Tehran's nukes.

Kim Jong in North Korea may be a lot of things, but he is if nothing else, one sneaky little SOB, and it would not surprise me if he waited for a U.S. strike on Iran to launch an attack on South Korea, thinking that he might gain some tactical or strategic advantage.

As for Baby Huey down Venezuela way?

He's a pissant. We can take his ass out like yesterday's garbage any day of the week we take a notion to do it, and there isn't one damn thing he can do about it except to parrot Cindy Sheehan about how "evil" the U.S. is. He actually thinks he can remain in power until 2031, when the fact is, that no-cojones scumbag isn't even going to LIVE to see 2031.

Mark that down. You read it here first.

Oil is valuable; Venezuala is not. Same deal in most oil-rich countries-- they can afford to be pointless and worthless because money keeps coming in right now, but the fact remains that they are pointless and worthless, but when the oil is gone, and/or they aggravate enough people that their oil is simply taken away from them by force, they will be needing to sell a whole lot of chewing gum to an eager world to even continue to exist. Such a pity!

Well, he is right about the scarcity of oil. Can't deny that if we attack Iran, the price of oil will go to $200 a barrel or more.

Stopping the flow of oil worked so well for the good folks in the Middle East the last time it was tried. /sarc

The same thing will happen to los Venezolanos . Without the black gold flowing out of the depths of Lake Maracaibo, his people will starve. Mass starvation is by far the fastest way to drive that man from power.

Not from this article, but just as interesting:

She [Rice at her confirmation hearing] reserved some of her harshest language for President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, whose government she said had "not been constructive" because of his tough tactics against the press and the opposition.

"Is it possible for you to say something positive about the Chavez administration?" asked Chafee, apparently taken aback at the toughness of her words. When Rice said "it's pretty hard, Senator, to find something positive," Chafee said her attitude "seems disrespectful to the Venezuelan people" who had elected Chavez.


Then there is what Sen. Dodd said:

Dodd said Chavez had demonstrated he was Venezuela's legitimate, democratically elected president by winning a national referendum on his rule in August.



Also:

As Senator Christopher Dodd has noted, "To stand silent while the illegal ouster of a government is occurring is deeply troubling and will have profound implications for hemispheric democracy."

Well said, and we can't even drill for our own oil and utilize more nuclear energy that will make these pissants irrelevant.

Rush recently pointed out how much extra money these blowhards have pocketed by talking up the price of oil - they must be laughing their a$$e$ off at us.

Losers like Chavez whose obvious goal in life is to have even more money than his hero/mentor, Castro, threaten, extort, and blackmail with impunity the best country that has ever existed.

And still we allow the opec-funded enviro whackos to prohibit domestic drilling and the building of new refineries.

He's really not worried about not having money, or about the peasants. He can shoot all the peasants he needs at any time.

No, the proper response is to announce a blockade of Venezuela. Tell them we don't want their oil or anything else, and nobody else can have it either. Then he can stare at the $100 prices of his dreams, but he won't sell a drop.

Nah, its easy. Here is how you do it. You announce that the world has had a free ride for 60 years, but the ride is now over. Henceforth, commodities transiting the high seas will be charged a small fee. Anyone not paying will be sunk. Then you go to each in turn and make offers. Long term contracts at $50 and free transit. Or charge whatever they like and try to get it past 50 SSNs.
