If you say you are going to do something, and the people you are pointing your finger at is supposedly pure evil, the bane of your existence, then just go ahead and do what you say you are going to do.
If those people are pure evil, then you'd be acting within the right, right?
CARACAS, Venezuela -President Hugo Chavez threatened on Sunday to cut off oil sales to the United States if Venezuela is attacked by its U.S.-allied neighbor Colombia in a dispute over allegations that Venezuela gives haven to Colombian rebels.
Chavez made his warning in an outdoor speech to thousands of supporters, saying: "If there is any armed aggression against Venezuela from Colombian territory or anywhere else supported by the Yankee empire, we ... would suspend shipments of oil to the United States!"
"We wouldn't send another drop of oil to its refineries, not a single drop more!" Chavez shouted, adding that the United States is "the big one to blame for all the tension in this part of the world."
Hey. Say it don't spray it.
Listen here Mr bloated-meat-bag, if we are so bad, and such a harm to your existence, then why ARE you feeding us with oil? Go ahead and shut off that oil spigot. Go ahead. I dare you. Be a man. Stand up and do the right thing for your country.
If actually carried out, such a threat would be a titanic economic blow for Chavez's government, which depends heavily on oil sales. The U.S. is the top buyer of oil from Venezuela, which is the United States' fifth biggest foreign supplier.
There again, why in the world are we giving money to this communist dictator. Still? He has stolen and nationalized his country's oil industry including oil facilities and off-shore oil rigs. WHy are we still supporting him by continuing to buy oil from him?
I guess we need to stop being cowards as well and stop buying oil from dictators. Isn't that what the liberals have been yelling and clammering for?
Let's just get on with it then.
