    Re: Chavez to troops: Prepare for war with Colombia

    It has simply become much easier to follow, then to lead. To lead takes work, but to follow.....well, it doesn't take much effort at all. This is where the U.S is heading, so I expect many nations will follow suit, and why wouldn't they? The U.S is the last leader in the free world, and when we finally fall, the others will fall like dominoes. This current situation is just the rantings of a dictator, there is no reason to invade columbia, other then to try and drag the America in to that fight. As we all know, this current administration will not act, so there is really no point in all of this, other then Chavez convincing himself, of what he already knows.

    Chavez, like Castro, Kim Jong-Ill and Ahemdinijad are all talk and no action.

    Ild agree in the sence that a full scale war is unlikely, neither side would want to occupy the other due to the heavily armed poulation on both sides. Though a minor scirmish is possible

    I would think that chavez would be more concerned with, keeping the power on, rather then considering a war with her neighbor?

    A war is just what he needs to get the people's minds off no water and power.

    1. According to who?

    2. The profits from oil exports probably accounts for the majority of Venezuela's supposed prosperity.

    Troops will be sent only if it appears Chavez is losing, to help Hugo.
