Chavez Vows To Defend Iran Against Any Attack in Political Front Posted September 20, 2006 True, the US military is in a quagmire in Iraq at the moment, but to even insinuate that their defense if attacked would not be extraordinary is a flat out denial of the truth. How long were Iran and Iraq at war and how many people died? Now, a nation on the other side of the planet (USA) attacks Iraq (population 25,000,000+) and topples the government in a matter of days, all while occupying another nation that they defeated that kept the Soviet Union on the ropes for a decade. Maybe it's not impressive to some people, but I still want to see what "blood will run" if Venezuela ever had the cojones to attack the USA. Chavez is great on the rhetoric, but would he ever actually do anything to back it up? No way. Why can't USA just leave Chavez alone? As stated, I am not his biggest fan or Islam's biggest fan but let people run their own affairs, Chavez has constantly been provoked and even had CIA backed coups perpretated against him.
