Chavez has spouted off a lot lately about how his country needs to prepare for war with the US. At this point, a war with the US is about the only thing that's going to help him stay in power. :2c:

Dude- here's a newsflash for you- the only person who thinks the US is poised to invade Venezuela is... you. Clown. :rolleyes:

This is typical third world propaganda used by a dictator to stay in power. Turn the people's attention away from the real threat to a false one. Hey its worked in lots of countries. May even work with Chavez.

Chavez doesn't want Venezuelans to get too relaxed, thus he rages against Yanqui Imperialism.

The spike in oil prices has led to a pretty good standard of living and increased prosperity. I can remember the food strikes that racked that country back in the late 80s, and I'm sure Chavez remembers too. He realizes that he needs to do more than provide a chicken in every pot if he wants to maintain his position. A little rhetoric goes a long way.

Venezuela was a mess not too long ago.
