    Hugo Chávez tells Venezuela troops to 'prepare for war' with Colombia - Times Online
    Something tells me that the Colombians are battle hardened from years of war and the outcome may not be as favorable to Venezuala as Chavez hopes. Though he may be just toeing the line.

    Chávez is a tool...

    I seriously doubt the Colombians would even be interested in a war with that clown...

    King Juan Carlos of Spain said it best last time he spoke to Chávez: "Why don't you shut up?"

    I think he is just trying to see what he can get away with. I'm still trying to decide if he's dangerous or just outrageous.

    From looking at the statistics, if he does, he is going to have a bloodbath. I do not know the effectiveness of the Colombian army, but they have the numbers. Chavez is an idiot.

    I think this is more of Chavez talking the talk, but I think Chavez is trying to convince himself he is all powerful.

    Chavez is feeling brave. After all, he's got Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey and the great former American president Jimmy Carter to back him up. :rolleyes:

    For some reason, when I read that article, all I hear is the annoying yapping of an insignificant chihuahua.

    More BS from Chavez, nothing is going to happen. He'll go back to wrecking his economy.

    I wish the Columbians would go stomp Venezuela into the ground while the UN issued "sanctions".

    Chavez is his own cheerleader 24/7 over there and he controls the media. People have to live in his little world.
