I saw in separate news reports from AP and UPI that President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, (at the U.N. Climate Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark), accused the Netherlands of using its islands of Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire (off Venezuela’s Caribbean coast), as bases for United States military forces to launch an attack on Venezuela.
President Chavez was quoted in the AP report as saying “Europe should know that the North American empire is filling these islands with weapons, assassins, American intelligence units, and spy planes and war ships.”
That sounds like there is quite an array of military forces on these three islands, ready to strike at Venezuela.
Has he used recon aircraft of his own, (and possibly his own intelligence agents on the ground) to gather this information and bring back the proof, and if so, when will he reveal this proof at the United Nations?
Or was President Chavez just being misinformed by counter-revolutionaries in his own government and military?
Could he be making up this immediate foreign threat to draw attention away from his own domestic political problems?
