A Wild and Unlikely Scenario

Hugo Chavez has been "arming himself up to his teeth" as we say in Spanish. He has been purchasing rifles, guns, planes, and has started training an almost two million strong civilian army under the pretense of the Yankees are coming!

Then again maybe not. Via Pajamas Media, Pieter Dorsman at Peaktalk offers a different perspective and reverses the argument: Venezuelans wouldn't be defending themselves, they would be the invaders. The target? The Dutch Antilles.

A wild and unlikely scenario? Maybe. But as Pieter notes, so was the Argentinians re-claiming the Falkland islands, which they did, resulting in an armed conflict.
