Chavez and the FARC

Mar 04, 2008 Published under Latin America

Most of the world’s attention is zoned in on the US elections or on the Middle East.

But very worthy of concern is the increasingly destabilizing behavior of Hugo Chavez from Venezuela.

He praised FARC commander Raul Reyes as a "good revolutionary" hero.  The FARC is the terrorist guerrilla group that has killed thousands of ordinary Colombian citizens.  Every Venezuelan and Colombian I’ve spoken to over the last couple months has been warning that Chavez is aiming to start a war against Colombia, partly to prop him up after the electoral defeat when he tried to amend the constitution in order to stay in power.
