Chavez Wants Peace

Like the bully he is, Venezuela's president Chavez is threatening a war with Colombia. Ordinarily he'd be right about a nation chasing criminals into another country, but Ecuador allowed rebels against a legitimate government to operate within their borders as a safe haven for attacks in Colombia.

He wants "peace" alright as in a big "piece" of Latin America.

Chavez dreams of conquering and ruling a Latin American Empire with him as the Caesar.

This is Venezuela's flag.

I think this flag is more appropriate for Chavez's vision of Venezuela.

The Blame America First crowd will have a totally predictable, and senseless, response of America caused this. Bringing down America will not feed one hungry mouth but will cause more hunger and will enrich only the kleptocrats who rule these countries as they can enrich themselves while the poor of their countries suffer even more.

The solution to world poverty is to bring the 3rd world up, not bring us down. But its easier to blame your own poverty on the wealth of others than it is to generate wealth.

Exactly, Shoprat. The blame America first crowd have their heads up their own hineys. In addition, that second flag certainly is more fitting for Chavez! You've nailed him, and I'm surprised I'm not hearing more about this. I think the primaries are all the media cares about right now.

But Chavez does not have the military to accomplish such a feat. And Columbia's army has been trained and equipped by the US. Guess which side I'd have my money on?

Amen, Shoprat.
