I wouldn't offer foreign aid at all, so I say yes. The US should fend for itself, since the government got it in this mess of lack of funds and oil in the first place.

It's the principle, like when Giuliani gave the check back to the Saudi Prince.

^ Damn, another one!
So we refuse aid for victims because of our pride?

We didn't cause the Indonesian sunami, unless ofcourse you wear tin foil hats.
...right.

I was pointing out that refusing aid is hardly a matter of pride, as Venezuela didn't cause the hurricane.

OK I misunderstood I thought you were implying something, however the fact remains that we shouldn't allow Chavez to use his offer of aid as a catalyst for his propaganda machine which he is surely to do.

I'm sry but I'm a supporter of free trade. If a country wants to give us some extra oil I'd be all for it. What do we have against Argentina anyways...oh yeah, they're communist. Like I give a **** what form of govt they have.:roll:

Oh, and I consider pride to be a great evil...on the same level as nationalism.

Zero, Chavez is the DEMOCRATICALY elected president of Venezuela...

The media and the rich in Venezuela hate Chavez, yet he still gets 60% of the vote in a fair, democratic election.


Yeah, what a pompous ass he is. Wow. We should refuse all help from him because we're number one. Woo, USA, we're the best. We don't need help!

Wait..what was the definition of irony again?

Well then. Any proof of this?

Also, how is he facist? If anything he's leftist.

And I'm pretty sure he can live without your endorsement.

I know he was. Doesn't mean he's not a communist.

If his offer will help Americans we should take it. I wonder if he would trade oil for Pat Robertson? :mrgreen: I don't really care what the oil industry thinks of him.
