From Foxnews.com:

CARACAS, Venezuela —  President Hugo Chavez on Sunday accused the U.S. of violating Venezuela's airspace with an unmanned spy plane, and ordered his military to be on alert and shoot down any such aircraft in the future.

Speaking during his weekly television and radio program, Chavez said the aircraft overflew a Venezuelan military base in the western state of Zulia after taking off from neighboring Colombia. He did not elaborate, but suggested the plane was being used for espionage.

"These are the Yankees. They are entering Venezuela," he said.

"I've ordered them to be shot down," Chavez said of the aircraft. "We cannot permit this."

Chavez has accused Colombia of allowing the United States to use its military bases to prepare a possible attack against Venezuela.

Both the U.S. and Colombia have denied such allegations in the past, saying the U.S. military presence is for the sole purpose of combating drug trafficking.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy said the mission had no information about any flyover and had not been contacted by Chavez's administration.

"If the Venezuelan government would like to speak with us about any issue, we would welcome discussions because we seek open dialogue with all nations in the hemisphere," spokeswoman Robin Holzhauer said.


It is not uncommon for Chavez to accuse other nations, especially the U.S. and its allies, of conspiring against Venezuela.

He's the (((COC Violation))) on the right.

What fucking reason would we have for overflying his country?  None!

We are completely ignoring this piece of shit and he can't stand it.

Instead of UAVs, I move that we use these for all future flights over into Venezuela.

Chavez is socialist scum.  However, if they did this to our airspace, the tune would be quite different.

He has a comrade in the White House.

Now would be his best time for Chavez to make a move. As Chairman O has shown in the Honduras case, he supports Leftists.

This is absolutely typical of dictators. They need to focus the anger of the people on some vague external force. No proof is needed. It keeps the populace on edge, and primes them for more repression in the name of "security".
