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.

You may be more correct than you know. The border of Venezuela and Colombia is similar to the terrain in parts of vietnam. I’m not sure there will be direct conflict between the nations’ armies, but there may be major unrest at a guerrilla type level. Chavez will hide behind groups like FARC and the Shining Path. He will stir up the cocoa farmers in the country and the drug dealers in Bogota, Medellin and Cali.

Chavez is a major belligerent in the Western Hemisphere. I thought Bush was like TR. If he was, he would honor the Roosevelt Corollary and do something about this idiot. I understand we have two wars going on, but this is our backyard.

Hugo will take Guyana first. There is more oil there and only limited U. S. defences!

He can buy all the high tech Russian and Chinese military hard wear he wants but if his military does not know how to use it it might as well be scrap. The Colombian Army would destroy him. I just hope “The One” continues to back the Colombians, but part of me thinks he will turn his back on them and create more problems for our future generations, kind of like Carter did.
