And not at all scoping out the defences of a nearby nation ruled by a critic of the US and particularly George Bush.

Oh, no, definitely not...

Somewhat off-topic, but Chavez's ex-wife, Marisabel Rodriguez, has become one of his most vocal opponents (yes, she could have an axe to grind). In Florida, she said recently:

"There has been much injustice, much corruption going on in the government," she said. "They encourage you to report corruption, but if you do, they cut your head off."

and

"You realize there was a dramatic change, What good were all those promises, all those expectations? Power and vengeance cannot go together."

Says the ex-wife using a privileged position to lambast her former husband. :D

Very true, as he probably left her for a model. :wink:

Still, she did say she was thinking of running for office herself, and so has received death threats from his government.

"There have absolutely been death threats against me, ordering me to keep quiet, to behave," she said.

I might be mistaken, but I believe it was the Bush administration that was hostile to his regime from the start.

Much U.S. money has been spent to fund groups that support counter-revolutionary activities in Venezuela. Also, many sanctions have been imposed to cause this nation economic distress. Not only that, but there has been a buildup of the US military in the Caribbean...not exactly friendly actions.

Quite agree Redgrain, I have said before that Bush took his eye off S. America.
Ugo was just another Tin Pot Dictator of whom the US has had dozens to deal with over the years. However Ugo is now a rich Dictator and is spreading all the A & D he can to frustrate US ambitions.
More and more Bush's Iraq Adventure does seem to have been about oil, only yesterday there was a report that Iraq claims to have worlds largest Proven reserves of oil.
Just why Blair committed UK to bush's war is still beyond me.
