Those far-fetched scenarios

Tran Sient's Watch today poked fun at remarks by Chavez on a planned U.S invasion of Venezuela. Personally, I can't for the life of me see why this is so far-fetched. The U.S. seems to invade some Latin-American country once or twice a decade. I don't know why Venezuela wouldn't be a candidate. It sure in the hell is more likely than the U.S. being attacked by Iraq, yet half the American voting public jumped on that bandwagon as it went by.

Indeed, considering that Chavez has already been temporarily deposed by a US-backed coup, it is hardly irrational for him to anticipate a US invasion.
