The Jaker

Is Venezuela the next emerging U.S. enemy?
President Bush and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez have made no secret of the fact that they dislike each other. Condi Rice called Chavez "a negative force in the region", while Chavez recently called the U.S. the "most savage, cruel and murderous empire" in world history. Chavez told a youth group this week that "socialism is the only path".

The big problem is that Venezuela is the U.S.'s 3rd largest oil supplier. Sure that's a symbiotic relationship, but in a world where Republicans finds it convenient to throw out unwelcome regimes in countries with oil wealth, I wouldn't want to be sitting in Caracas for the next decade.
