Next year, Caracas?

Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela and bugaboo of the President of the US, has announced that he has proof that the US has plans to invade Venezuela. Now, I'm sure that the administration would love to have a distraction from the demonstration of their incompetence in New Orleans, and from the continuing incompetence in Iraq. I also have no doubt that the Pentagon has drawn up plans to invade Venezuela. They probably have plans for the invasion of Switzerland drawn up. But given the lack of sufficient resources, the rapidly-dwindling enlistments, the fast-rising deficit, and the bottom-of-the-barrel poll numbers, it seems hardly likely that this will come to pass. But it would make for interesting times.
