Venezuela Military Buildup Is Destabilizing to Region, Military Experts Say

Interesting. Bush is forcing Chavez to build up his military? Bush is making the Communists attack Bush's allies?

I think it is much simpler. Chavez wants to conquer the region and spread Communism. How much simpler does it get?


FOXNews.com - Venezuela Military Buildup Is Destabilizing to Region, Military Experts Say - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News: "Venezuela's military buildup could foment an arms race in Latin America and destabilize the region, security experts say, noting President Hugo Chavez's recent purchase of fighter jets and helicopters and his intent to buy five diesel submarines.

Using his country’s vast oil revenue, Chavez has been busy negotiating deals with nations like Russia to secure arms to bolster the Venezuelan military.

The military build-up comes amid Chavez's most recent show of military force. On Sunday, Venezuelan tanks were deployed to the Colombian border, and Venezuela's embassy in Bogota was closed indefinitely, after Colombia staged a bombing attack on Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebels living inside Ecuador. (Colombia believes Chavez is providing support to the guerrilla group; FARC's second-ranking commander was killed in the raid, and Ecuador strengthened its military presence along its border with Colombia.)"
