Venezuela's Chavez says US, NATO preparing for war in Libya, warns it would be madness
Canadian Press via Google News ^ | March 12, 2011 | Jorge Rueda

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned Friday that it would be madness for the United States and its NATO allies to go to war in Libya to try to topple Moammar Gadhafi.

Chavez, a friend and ally of Gadhafi, criticized President Barack Obama for expressing support for the Libyan opposition.

"Right now they are preparing a war, the Yankees and their NATO allies," Chavez said in a televised speech.

He predicted a larger war in Libya could push world oil prices to $200 a barrel, and he echoed Gadhafi's warnings that a foreign military intervention would unleash much more bloodshed.

"If the Yankees (attempt) the madness of invading Libya -- Gadhafi already said it a few days ago -- it would be a new Vietnam," Chavez said...

His stance has been echoed by Latin American allies including Cuba, Ecuador and Bolivia...

Obama said Friday in Washington that the U.S. and the world community are "slowly tightening the noose" on Gadhafi...

"Today I saw Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, saying that he's concerned about the price of oil," Chavez said...

"In its desperation, the Yankee empire is continuing and will continue to threaten nations that struggle for their dignity ... conspiring against governments," Chavez said...

As for the conflict raging in Libya, Chavez said: "That's a matter the Libyans should resolve."

A broken clock can be right twice a day. I think it would be stupid to send US troops to Libya.

Hugo wouldn't know madness if it bit him in the buttocks and he lives in that state.

I don't think the Yankees are scheduled to play Libya this year.

If Zero doesn’t act, expect South America to start to come apart a little more, probably beginning with a major offensive by Venezuela’s proxies in Columbia.

If I were President I would commission 5,000 MOABS. I would then ask for 5,000 targets. Without hesitation I would hit all 5,000 targets. Guess who messes with the US next......

His regime is falling apart, he needs to either hold it together — a rocketing crude price can do that to some extent, although if memory serves the only refinery that can handle his shiite-y crude is in the US Virgin Islands; or he can start the war against Columbia in earnest. If Zero does nothing about that, he’ll be out on his ass.

The US needs energy independence, but Zero has no interest in that. He’s gotta go.

I agree, the US needs to wipe an adversary off the map, annihilate it so thoroughly that, in the future, when some jackoff allows him or herself to contemplate attacking us, they literally sh!t themselves to death in fear.

Nice to see we agree...... I tell people the same thing over and over and they say are your serious..... It is as if I get people who are surprised by my frankness. Problem is I wish I were kidding. You don’t pass a law to stop a bully. You kick them in the nuts or cunt and punch them in the teeth....
