If Chavez is such a problem, the CIA can deal with him. They got rid of Allende......
CIA? Are we talking the same guys that have tried to get rid of Castro for forty forty plus years unsuccesfuly? Or the same guys that were not able to predict the Iraqui Invasion to Kuwait? Or that multibillion agency that was sure Saddam had weapons of mass destruction in 2003? The guys that failed to protect the Sha or Somoza when it was most needed? Or those that cooperate in the Iran Contras fiasco or failed miserably in Vietnam? Those guys?
Allende? That was during Nixon and Kissinger and they got plenty support from Chile`s military.
If we depend on CIA to get rid of Chavez then we can bet our money on an invasion from French Guyana.
