Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Friday he has documentary evidence that the United States plans to invade his country.

Chavez, interviewed on ABC's "Nightline," said the plan is called "Balboa" and involves aircraft carriers and planes. A transcript of the interview was made available by "Nightline."

He said U.S. soldiers recently went to Curacao, an island off Venezuela's northwest coast. He described as a "lie" the official U.S. explanation that they visited Curacao for rest and recreation.

"They were doing movements. They were doing maneuvers," Chavez said, speaking through a translator.

He added: "We are coming up with the counter-Balboa plan. That is to say if the government of the United States attempts to commit the foolhardy enterprise of attacking us, it would be embarked on a 100-year war. We are prepared."
To prove U.S. intentions to invade Venezuela, Chavez offered to send "Nightline" host Ted Koppel maps and other documentation.

"What I can't tell you is how we got it, to protect the sources, how we got it through military intelligence," he said.

In the event of a U.S. invasion, Chavez said the United States can "just forget" about receiving any more oil from his country.

I like the part where he says that if we invade them we will not get any oil from them.:roll:
Hey Chavez, if we invade you we will be in control of your oil. Smarten up Chavez! That would be the only reason Bush would invade your country.
Just PRAY that Bushs big campaign contributors are payed off soon so Bush won't have to invade you to "liberate Venezuela!"

Hugo Chavez is a moron, and one of the most just-plain-incompetent leaders in the world. He says outrageous things to get the attention of the world, with very little provocation. Anyone remember his disgusting sexual fantasies about Condoleezza Rice he described on national television?

He's a tinpot communist-wannabe who would only be laughed at by the rest of the world if he didn't happen to be sitting on lots of oil.
