Chavez Prepares for Falklands War against UK Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Feb 5, 2012, 08:20 PM
President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela is placing his troops on full military alert to side with Argentina if a Falklands War erupts against Great Britain. The Marxist leader is raising the stakes over the Falkland Islands by promising to fight alongside Argentina in any conflict with British forces.

According to the Daily Mail of London, "the inflammatory promise from Hugo Chavez came in the run-up to the 30th anniversary of the April 1982 invasion of the islands by Argentian. At the same time, Foreign Secretary William Hague insisted the deployment of a British warship and Prince William to the Falklands was 'entirely routine.'"

Mr. Chavez gave a speech at the Marxist-oriented ALBA bloc, an alliance of eight South American and Carribean nations that supported Argentina and its long-running confrontation with Great Britain over the islands.

As reported by the Mail, "Argentina calls the islands Las Malvinas and claims they were 'stolen' by Britain 180 years ago."

At the meeting in Caracas, Mr. Chavez said, "the issue of the Malvinas Islands is an issue that concerns us, especially with the strong language that has emerged from the British Government, accusing Argentina of being colonialist."
