Columbia's GREAT PRESIDENT, Senor Alvaro Uribe
recognizes the most blatant fact about Hugo
Chavez.
Hugo Chavez ALREADY has not-so-secret agreements
with Russia, North Korea, and Iran, on the
placing of strategic, long-range, OFFENSIVE
MISSILES into Venezuela for the expressed purpose
of performing 'NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL' on his
neighbor-nations, specifically COLUMBIA!!

It's just not about Russian Sukhoi SU-30MKI
fighter-bombers, or permanent airfield basing
for Russia's Tupolev TU-95 "Bear" bombers
in Venezuela.

This new arms race includes long-range OFFENSIVE
MISSILES, with Venezuela as the base-of-operations
in 2010-2011, as was Cuba in October of 1962--
the CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS!!

This is the new reality.

Hundreds of Russian, North Korean, and Iranian
missile technicians have been pouring into
Venezuela since February of 2010.

New Russian-made ZSU-23-4 and ZSU-57-2 anti-aircraft guns, and SAM-6 "Gainful" anti-aircraft
missiles are already in Venezuela awaiting the
arrival of long-range strategic, OFFENSIVE, missiles.

I seem to remember something about an agreement between Colombia and the US that had Cha Cha Cha foaming at the mouth know he goes to bed with China, Russia, Tehran, and no one says a word maybe the world should step in and put these nations on alert that if they supply Venezuela with nuclear weapons they will be responsible if they are ever used as blackmail against any nation or sold to ANY TERRORIST faction or used in any way or manner to be a danger to the world as we know it today these missiles in the hands of an unstable person like Hugito is no good busyness sense.

Not to mention that 9 billions of "defensive weapons" will make it harder for Huguito to supply Venezuelans with a decent police force so 15,000 Venezuelans don't have to die every year because of crime every year. Or, they will make it harder for Huguito to provide us with a decent electric service.... yeah, yeah, I know, those are **secondary** concerns but I thought they were worth mentioning. Silly me to think about **real** needs instead of **phantom** enemies.

TO--"John21s". You are 100,000% correct.

Hugo Chavez is turning Venezuela into a series
of strategic missile launching sites.

As far as the "welfare of the People of Venezuela"
is concerned, Chavez will be responsible for thousands
of dead Venezuelans as Allied forces bomb these
new missile bases, as those bases "go operational".

The Venezuelan economy is a socialistic shambles.

However, Venezuela WILL be FREE, AGAIN!!

VIVA LA PUEBLO VENEZUELA, LIBRE!!
