There is a real risk of Venezuela attaining nuclear weapons in 10 years thanks to help from Iran. Iran did warn us that it would spread its nuclear technology to its friends. I suppose Brazil and Turkey are friends of Iran too.
Venezuela is quite friendly with Bolivia. As you know, at one time Bolivia had access to the sea. Over a hundred years ago Chile took Bolivia’s access away with its stronger military. I’m now starting to wonder if Venezuela might share some of its future nuclear weapons with Bolivia to be used against Chile. This is all 10 to 20 years in the future, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
If something isn’t done to prevent it, we’ll likely be facing an emerging nuclear threat from President Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela sometime in the next 10 years.
He vows that “nothing will stop us” from bringing “nuclear power” to Venezuela. Unfortunately, “nuclear power” is now a common coverup term for a nuclear-weapons program, such as we’re seeing in Iran.
After five years of talking up his atomic aspirations without making much headway, the anti-American Chavez is finally getting somewhere.
