Chavez: U.S. Plans to Invade Venezuela


WASHINGTON - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Friday he has documentary evidence that the United States plans to invade his country.

Chavez, interviewed on ABC's "Nightline," said the plan is called "Balboa" and involves aircraft carriers and planes. A transcript of the interview was made available by "Nightline."

He said U.S. soldiers recently went to Curacao, an island off Venezuela's northwest coast. He described as a "lie" the official U.S. explanation that they visited Curacao for rest and recreation.

"They were doing movements. They were doing maneuvers," Chavez said, speaking through a translator.

He added: "We are coming up with the counter-Balboa plan. That is to say if the government of the United States attempts to commit the foolhardy enterprise of attacking us, it would be embarked on a 100-year war. We are prepared."

Chavez has been attending the summit of world leaders at the United Nations in New York this week. On Thursday, he denounced the U.S.-led war in Iraq and told other leaders they should consider moving the U.N. headquarters out of the United States.

To prove U.S. intentions to invade Venezuela, Chavez offered to send "Nightline" host Ted Koppel maps and other documentation.

"What I can't tell you is how we got it, to protect the sources, how we got it through military intelligence," he said.

In the event of a U.S. invasion, Chavez said the United States can "just forget" about receiving any more oil from his country.

How will we not get any more oil if we control the damn oil? He is an idiot, and I am sure that he and his buddy Castro dreamed this one up to try and screw us in the UN

It would be the smartest thing we ever did. We don't even get oil from Iraq. Europe does. We buy lots from this pecker. We should invade and skin him in the public square.

In the event of a US invasion Chavez will no longer be in control of his oil industry.

More Blah, Blah, Blah from the nut and more than half of his fellow countrymen want him DEAD.

Works for me, I'd be for invading Canada if I thought it would drop the price of oil a dollar a gallon.

Don't laugh - Castro has got a hell of a lot of milage out of just this sort of pronouncement.

For invasion plans and reasons, all he'd have to do is look aat Pres. Theodore Roosevelt's papers. They needed an ass kicking and some controlling then, and not much has changed other than the names of the principals.

Yes we're going launch an all-out assault on Venezuela, but first we're gonna have the CIA whack the mayor of NO(he's the key).



They're both----->

I say do it.

Reclaim the Panama Canal too, and not offer to give it back this time. Then Venezuela. Gas could to to 89 cents a gallon again.

Curacao? Didn't we used to run counter-drug ops out of there? I know about six years ago we TDY'd a team of cops down there out of Langley to provide support for some AWACS that never showed. Those guys got $80 a day per diem for two weeks and never put on a uniform. They had a team meeting every other night on the beach with a two drink minimum but otherwise just had the run of the island. I always regretted missing that TDY...

Fucking Chavez. It never occurred to me that we should invade Venezuela but the more I hear him talk the better the idea sounds.


ETA: I thought so. WTF is this jackass smoking?
