Chavez makes hostile noise:
CARACAS (AFP) — President Hugo Chavez said Sunday on his radio talk show that neighboring Colombia is trying to provoke Venezuela into a war so as to draw in and “justify” an armed intervention by the United States.
“The government of Colombia is capable of provoking a war with Venezuela to justify a US intervention in Venezuela,” Chavez said on his weekly program “Alo Presidente.”
He warned Colombian President Alvaro Uribe: “think closely about how far you can go, and I publicly urge you a moment of reflection.”
What great strategic friends we are in this hemisphere.
