President Bush Condemns Venezuela

Headline: President Bush Condemns Venezuela

President George Bush condemned Venezuela yesterday saying, “We firmly oppose any acts of aggression that could destabilize the region." The statement comes amid growing border tensions in South America over Venezuela’s and Ecuador’s militarization along the Colombian border.

Venezuela and Ecuador have mobilized their armies in reaction to a Colombian incursion into Ecuador on a mission to assassinate a high level commander of FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia), Raul Reyes.

FARC is a militant organization currently waging war with the Columbian government from bases located within Ecuador. The Columbian government has caused a great deal of tension in the region by illegally entering Ecuador to attack FARC. At this point, both Venezuela and Ecuador are likely to back down since Columbia has the full support of the United States.

Really? Analogous to Hitler? Because border disputes and charges of harboring guerillas are nothing new for these countries.

Personally I do not trust Chavez, I think he may be the new age Hitler setting out to devour as much as he can. He is using this to intimidate Colombia.

*Colombia* not Columbia. They usually have the full blessing of the U.S. in many of their actions. Colombia is the greatest ally the U.S. has in the terribly successful "War on Drugs" and will not do anything to jeopardize that alliance.
