Without ambassadors, US-Venezuela tensions grow

Jan 1, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Buffalo News

Updated: January 1, 2011, 12:35 PM CARACAS, Venezuela - The United States and Venezuela are starting the year without ambassadors in Caracas and Washington due to an intensifying diplomatic dispute that is likely to persist and boost President Hugo Chavez's long-standing antagonism.

An America ambassador appointed by obama(who is a closet communist) will only be a Chavez sympathizer. Iran has already sold missiles to Venezuela that can reach as far as Tennessee and all our southern states. If the coward Americans don't wake up and demand our Government protects them, obama and his communist backed union groups and the radicals who have always been trying to bring down America will win the war without a shot fired. The coward Americans will give their country to communist forces and will go down in history as the generation of pathetic cowards that stood for nothing and lost it all. There are few patriots in America and millions of cowards who will die not even trying to fight our Government to do its job and protect Americans. Obama only wants to protect muslims and illegals here to destroy America.

Chavez's days are numbered. He will be overthrown by the people who he claims he is helping. They can see right through him and they're tired of his crap. We didn't even use much Venezuelan oil before he was in power and now that he has offended us, even less of his oil is being marketed in the US!! Get friendly with Iran and Russia, Hugo. You'll need a place to go when the Venezuelans kick your ass out!!

Every Country should have The Right to Accept or Reject Another Country's Ambassador. Almost all American Ambassadors are arrogant trouble makers trying to force American Culture and Business interests on the rest of The World!

If the US State Department had acquiesced to Chavez and offered a different, self-censoring ambassadorial, they would have allowed a despotic clown to limit free speach in America itself and silenced a well-founded, transparent, and intellegent opinion about the state of affairs in Venezuela. It's bad enough that this thug is doing to his own country but he's not doing it to ours. I agree with what State did!!

Almost all American ambassadors are arrogant trouble makers? What is the percentage of the over 200 ambassadors? Where do you get your evidence? From comic books?

VENEZUELA HAS AN ECONOMIC MODEL THAT WORKS.

THIS PUTS THE UNITED STATES RULERS IN A BAD POSITION.

THE UNITED STATES MUST CHANGE BUT IT IS OSSIFIED FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.
TO CHANGE THE OLD MUST REPLACE THE NEW IN THE UNITED STATES, THE SAME THAT HAS HAPPENED COUNTLESS TIMES BEFORE IN HISTORY.

Woof, Larry Leon Palmer is by Obama standards a qualified candidate to be ambassador to Venezuela. The spin is Chavez didn't like the choice, because of a comment Palmer made concerning Columbia's Military, but this is spin. The truth is Chavez was insulted because he didn't like Obama's choice of a Black Ambassador. Among other things Chavez is a racist like all dictators.

My opinion? We don't need an ambassador in Venezuela. Chavez is a PIG. Let him live in his pen like Castro without an ambassador. Besides he can always call Obama

what you dont realize is that you are also part of the problem.....sitting there and blaming only Obama is ignorance at its finest.....both parties have been instrumental in destroying this country, and its because we have armies of drones on both sides of the political spectrum that want to project all the problems of this country onto the other side while completely turning their backs on the ills of their "team" (republican, democrat, conservative, liberal)

Since Obama is only Bushlite, why should he?

If the Bush Crime Family hadn't tried to assassinate Chavez, maybe we'd have better relations.

How much is gas in Venezuela?

TWELVE CENTS.

So, Fleabaggers, if we have so much of our own oil as you assert, how about getting it out and down to 12 cents a gallon?

If a "lousy commie" can do it, why can't we?

Ok let me guess, now the right wants Obama to STRENGTHEN ties with an enemy, instead of the Bush tactic of not talking with them.

Why?

Because they have to take the other side, even if they agree with Obama.

You're insane.

About 30% of the population of the country live on less than US$2 per day.

And altough, Venezuela has the least expensive petrol in the world because the consumer price of petrol is so heavily subsidised.

Venezuela has a economy dominated by the petroleum sector, which accounts for roughly a third of GDP, around 80% of exports and more than half of government revenues.

Sorry, but you don't have a clue about what their economy is based on. If we can stop buying so much oil, oil based economies would crumble. All their eggs are in one basket.

Because 1/3 of our GDP is not dominated by oil.

And 80% of our exports is not oil.

And half our Federal revenues are not coming from oil.

So we can't subsidize the cost of oil like oil producing nations can.

We don't produce anything near the amount of oil the OPEC nation of Venezuala does.

Do folks like you read at all, or do you just spew idiotic statements to other idiots who believe you're making sense?

Yes he can call him anytime as their buddies who traded autographed copies of their assinine books.
We should just bomb the crap out of Chavez before we have another missile crisis, Kennedy new how to deal with Castro and the Russians, unlike O`dumbo who just placates them both. Uranium will flow to chavez from Russia and Iran, maybe North Korea as well in time. Our enemies are attempting to box us in, East,West and soon from the South..........
