You all have probably read or heard that the brilliant Hugo Chavez has not only threatened to go to war with Colombia, but along with Ecuador, have supposedly been amassing their armies on the Colombian border. Gateway Pundit has great coverage on Monkey Boy’s latest tantrum for relevance. More at the Real Cuba as well.
My question is though, given that Hugo is subsidizing the castro regime with all that oil, should we expect to see Cuban troops along the Colombian border anytime soon? I havent seen anyone else make mention of this, but it doesnt seem all that far fetched to me.
UPDATE: (bumped to top) I knew it wouldnt be too long before fidel stepped away from his game of pinocle with Satan and tried to grab the media limelight:
Havana – Cuban ex-leader Fidel Castro accused the United States of provoking a regional crisis between Colombia and its neighbours Ecuador and Venezuela, in an article published on Monday in the Cuban media.
“We hear the trumpets of war sounding loudly; that is the consequence of the genocidal plans of the Yankee empire,” Castro wrote of the Colombian raid in Ecuador that killed the second highest ranking leader of the Colombian Marxist rebel group FARC.
“Nothing is new. This was planned,” wrote the 81-year-old longtime ruler of Cuba, who last month officially ceded power to his brother Raul, elected president in his place.
No comment from new “leader” raul castro, as it is believed he’s at the Victoria’s Secret One-day Lingerie Close-out sale.
