"President Hugo Chavez on Sunday threatened to cut off oil sales to the United States in an "economic war" if Exxon Mobil Corp. wins court judgments to seize billions of dollars in Venezuelan assets." (from the AP)
And this is supposed to be a BAD thing? This attempt to use oil as a weapon is what we have the emergency oil reserve for. Venezuela needes us more than we need them.
Pluse, of course, maybe we would get SERIOUS about things like drilling in Anwar AND in a REAL economic war against that would-be tyrant, Hugo Chavez.
