    Chavez Warns of Resistance War With U.S.
    Jun 25 01:47 AM US/Eastern
    By CHRISTOPHER TOOTHAKER
    Associated Press Writer

    CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - President Hugo Chavez urged soldiers on Sunday to prepare for a guerrilla-style war against the United States, saying that Washington is using psychological and economic warfare as part of an unconventional campaign aimed at derailing his government.

    Dressed in olive green fatigues and a red beret, Chavez spoke inside Tiuna Fort—Venezuela's military nerve-center—before hundreds of uniformed soldiers standing alongside armored vehicles and tanks decorated with banners reading: "Fatherland, Socialism, or Death! We will triumph!"

    "We must continue developing the resistance war, that's the anti- imperialist weapon. We must think and prepare for the resistance war everyday," said Chavez, who has repeatedly warned that American soldiers could invade Venezuela to seize control of the South American nation's immense oil reserves.

    U.S. officials reject claims that Washington is considering a military attack. But the U.S. government has expressed concern over what it perceives as a significant arms build-up here.

    Chavez—a close ally of Cuban leader Fidel Castro—told soldiers the Washington was trying to weaken and divide Venezuelan society, including the armed forces, without resorting to combat.

    "It's not just armed warfare," said Chavez, a former army officer who is leading what he calls the "Bolivarian Revolution," a socialist movement named after 19th-century independence hero Simon Bolivar. "I'm also referring to psychological warfare, media warfare, political warfare, economic warfare."

    Under Chavez, Venezuela has recently purchased some $3 billion worth of arms from Russia, including 53 military helicopters, 100,000 Kalashnikov rifles, 24 SU-30 Sukhoi fighter jets.

    Last week, Chavez said he is considering arms purchases, including submarines and a missile-equipped air defense system, as he prepares for a tour of Russia, Belarus and Iran.

    "We are strengthening Venezuela's military power precisely to avoid imperial aggressions and assure peace, not to attack anybody," he said Sunday.

    Opposition leader Julio Borges condemned the president's interest in acquiring weapons, saying the government should focus on reducing violent crime in Venezuela, which has one of the highest homicide rates in Latin America.

    "This isn't resolved with military purchases and foreign tours," Borges said. "This is resolved with the determination of having a country with justice."

    "Fatherland, Socialism, or Death!"

    Yeah, it really doesn't have the ring of "Give me Liberty or give me death," does it?

    Chavez is a rabble-rouser only concerned with his own political power (I know, what a novel characteristic for a socialist/communist leader, right?) who must keep "upping the ante" in anti-American rhetoric in order to justify his domestic tyranny. He is not well-liked here in Brazil, or in most of South America – despite his oil-money largesse. His continuing crack downs on basic freedoms such as an independent press are earning him more and more cold shoulders, even from other, more progressive, socialists in the region. All this while still selling most of his oil to the Great Satan itself, the good old USA. Seems politics end where greenbacks begin, as usual…

    I hope he reaches the limits of his bluster soon, before he causes some real problems…

    He's trying to put the blame for his country's lousy state on the 'evil Americans'. That way he doesn't have to take as much heat for their bad economy & high crime rate.

    He has nationalized telephone, utilities & now has taken control of the oil companies assets in the country. So it won't be long until oil production drops & with it, his cash flow.

    No, he's actually helping La Raza, and a few of the other political groups. He takes his racist socialism very seriously, and MS-13 is happy to take the $$ to bring about the Reconquista.

    The Big Lie, famous fascict and socialist technique, deomnize a particular group, and blame them for everything - Hitler with theJews, for example.
    Let him barricade himself in his own country, no loss. If he shuts off the oil, he'll hurt himself more than us.

    Yes, which is why he has actually increased his sale of oil to the Great Satan during his tenure. Venezuelan crude is heavy and difficult to refine - the US is the only country with the refining capacity to buy much of his stuff. He will continue to bark and shout out of one side of his mouth, while eating up US dollars with the other...

    As a side note, he ticked off Brazil a few weeks ago by coming down against bio-fuels (ethanol, specifically), which is a big no-no here in the Land of Sugar Cane.

    Isn't this the same turd who went into Spanish Harlem last yeah and announced he would be slicing the cost of oil to pass the savings onto the Americans. He went on to blither about how if it didn't go through, it was because George Bush blocked it?

    This guys got a scary arsenal. But I think he's more of a threat to himself and his neighbors than to us.

    Boy, doesn't that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Does he think he is Hitler or Stalin?

    Sounds like he should have done some comparison shopping, I would have thought $3 billion would have gone farther.

    53 military helicopters and 30 24 SU-30 Sukhoi fighter jets...I'm sure military planners everywhere are quaking in thier boots.....

    Sorry, I couldn't help it

    We've got two airplanes going down that way this week. I'm on one going to Bogata, the other is going into Caracas. Gotta love my job. Of the two trips, I think I got the better one. Although narco-terrorists probably aren't much nicer than facists thugs.

    You are very close. I read that he only bought 200K rounds for the AKs. If we add the amount of russian ammo from members of this board I am sure we surely double that up.
