It's too bad oil companies can't collude and tell him to go to hell. They all know that if he has a chance again, he'll screw them. Why won't they revolt and throw his ass out?

I figure he will start a war with Colombia as a means of distraction and unification of the nation. Recall the recent visits of Russian and Chinese military assets and the on going terrorism directed against Colombia from Venezulan based/backed forces.

Falling oil 1 billion dollars a month
New Russian military equipment $100’s of millions of dollars
selling out your left wing morals priceless

You're very naive. The discount to Chavez' sludge from useful crude has done nothing but increase as crude prices have come down.

His last remaining assets outside of V are his associate refineries. These will go away, quite involuntarily, if crude prices stay low.

Typical stupid socialist. Promises, promises, and guts his own country's economy to try to keep them.

This happens over and over. Russia did this over and over. Oil companies should tell Chavez to go to hell. The Venezuela oil industry will fall apart. Chavez needs oil company $$ for new equipment etc

"President Hugo Chávez, buffeted by falling oil prices that threaten to damage his efforts to establish a Socialist-inspired state, is quietly courting Western oil companies once again.'

HAHAHAHAHA! Dream on Chavez. You've screwed yourself royally now that the tar you call oil is virtually worthless. No sane oil company will risk capital to develop butuate in a stable country, never mind a country where short fat dictators seize the assets of companies doing business in good faith as soon as theirs money to be made.

Capitalism dictates that the US companies deal honestly.

Chavez considers HUSSEIN OBAMA from KENYA a SOCIALIST ally.

Thats why he is making his move.

"Chávez has left his so-called strategic partners out to dry, like the Chinese, who have been given the same treatment as Exxon."

Maybe Russia will bend over for them. Oops, I forgot about the money owed to Russia for all of the arms and weapons. Chavez, you are really screwed and have few friends.

Another tidbit.

Nationalizations in other sectors, like agriculture and steel manufacturing, are fueling capital flight, leaving Venezuela reliant on oil for about 93 percent of its export revenue in 2008, up from 69 percent in 1998 when Chávez was first elected.
