Venezuela threatens to cut US oil

Venezuela threatens to cut US oil


Mr Chavez said Exxon's campaign was part of a wider US plot

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has threatened to cut off oil supplies to the US if it continues what he calls an economic war.
"Take note Mr Bush, Mr Danger," said Mr Chavez in his weekly televised address. "I will cut off oil supplies."

Re: Venezuela threatens to cut US oil

The US administration has been pushing it for a while, so I am not totally surprised.

If it happens it does not boad well for ANWR and all those cute little animals that need tundra to survive

Chavez has moved up from talk to sabre rattling.
