CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez threatened on Sunday to cut off oil sales to the United States if Venezuela is attacked by its U.S.-allied neighbor Colombia in a dispute over allegations that Venezuela gives haven to Colombian rebels.
Chavez made his warning in an outdoor speech to thousands of supporters, saying: "If there is any armed aggression against Venezuela from Colombian territory or anywhere else supported by the Yankee empire, we ... would suspend shipments of oil to the United States!"
"We wouldn't send another drop of oil to its refineries, not a single drop more!" Chavez shouted, adding that the United States is "the big one to blame for all the tension in this part of the world." What? Isn't Hugo a close friend of Obama's now? I thought they were getting along since Hugo has said that Obama is more socialist then he is. I thought for sure all that bowing and apologizing would work to bring in a new Ara of peace to the world. Wasn't that the Obama's main and only strategy for peace with our enemies? I'm sure the left are saying the same thing. The only difference is I don't mean it. The conservatives have been saying how stupid the bowing and apologizes were and that they would only show weakness to our enemies. It sure does look like we were right again. We were right on obamacare and the stimulus being a epic fail and now this. It looks like Obama and the Democrats are leaving a bigger mess then they came into. We are closer to another world war now then ever. I hope you are prepared for the future because the Obama admin and the Democratic Party are hellbent to take us to a place where we don't want to go.
