The "Move 10 battalions to the border with Colombia for me" Carnival of Latin America and the Caribbean

UPDATE, Tuesday March 4
FARC purchased uranium; Chavez gave the FARC $300 million as a Valentine's Day gift

Welcome to the Carnival of Latin America and the Caribbean.

If you would like your posts included in the Monday Carnivals, please email me your links, faustaw "at" yahoo "dot" com.

Today's big story: After the Colombian army did a brief raid into Ecuador and killed the FARC's #2 guy, Hugo's ordered troops, tanks and jets to stand by the border with Colombia, and Hugo's friend Correa of Ecuador has done likewise, probably after Hugo reminded him of their joint projects and asked for a show of indignation.

What will it come to? I try to answer that question this morning at Pajamas Media. More from Venezuela News and Views here.

The point made by Fareed Zakaria in your first link should be engraved above the doorways of every government building and media office in the US: There is nothing said in America that won't be heard around the world. No other county is under scrutiny like the US

I think you're going to be getting a lot of Instahits from now on, Fausta. That's good, but the reasons for it are bad. Looks as if we're going to have wars, a little too close to home.

Since the topic is Senor Chavez, wouldn't "Circus" be more appropriate? :^)
