Señor Chavez, “Shut Up”

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — In his opening address of a rare OPEC summit, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned the United States on Saturday that oil prices would further surge if the U.S. contemplates an attack against his country or Iran.

If ever there was a reason for the US to start drilling in ANWR, this is it. This petty tyrant should not be allowed to dictate our foreign policy any more than he should be allowed to bad mouth the King of Spain. He and his friend in Iran claim that they will destroy the US dollar and that this is only a prelude to the bringing down of the United States. This would be a good time to read, once more, Jeremiah 29:7)

Self-sufficiency - by whatever means, gas, oil, wind power, nuclear power, or some combination of things – should be a goal of the US. Isolationism never looked so good. I suggest that we allow the world to go it alone for a few years and see how they fare. Spend all that foreign aid money on us. We certainly have enough needs of our own.
