FARC Offer Support to Chavez


Once again Colombian guerrillas made public their total support to Chavez in the event of a US invasion. This solidarity gesture was communicated in a Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) message praising Venezuela’s Communist Party for its XII Congress.

“Your role [Venezuela’s Communist Party ] in driving the process led by the Commandant Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias, in this era in which a new revolutionary wage rises in our America, is huge.”… “Count on us if the Washington hawks wage an invasion war against the brave people of Venezuela, which is the hope of America and its revolution,” says the apologetic communiqué.

Heralding a US invasion to Venezuela is just a way for the FARC to justify its existence in a world where Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez got to power via electoral processes. Everyone knows that. What amazes me is that some people take seriously the prospect of the US invasion knowing that:

-After the Irak mess the US couldn’t even invade Neverland.
-Venezuela is not at the top of the American international agenda (Lebanon, Irak, Iran and Korea are obviously a priority).
-Bush’s popularity is in the thirties.
-The oil price is too high to risk a war with an Opec country.

I bet you Chavez will invade the US, to have the surprise element on his side. A preemptive strike.

What other prove is needed?
The link of Chavez with the Colombian guerrilla is obvious. The FARC is a terrorist group. International pressure should be applied to Venezuela so they stop supporting and taking advantage of drug dealers and terrorists. What else do they want? A picture of Chavez smuggling weapons?
By the way. This is a nice blog.

I tend to agree with erasmo; I would not be surprised if Chavez did something to strike at the US with some sort of manufactured excuse.

Of course, one would think after what happened to the Taliban no one would try doing something like that again......

Menos mal que Chavez dice que no tiene nada que ver con ellos...
