What is That Dipwad Up To?

Hugo Chavez, buffoon that he is, is still a dangerous buffoon. He shouldn't be allowed to use a pencil or adult scissors out of fear he'll hurt himself, but the man commands the Venezuelan military. And he looks like he's running with scissors now:

The United States is denying a claim by President Hugo Chavez that a U.S. military plane entered Venezuelan airspace.

Chavez said the plane was met by his military's F-16s and escorted out of Venezuelan airspace.

The president is calling it a provocation by the U.S., saying the P-3 plane had taken off from the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao and twice entered Venezuelan airspace on Friday.

This follows his accusations of four days earlier that our aircraft based out of Dutch territory violated his airspace.

The man seriously doesn't want to grow old and die peacefully in his sleep.

Right now, the Dutch just have a trip wire defense in their possessions that Hugo is sputtering about. The Dutch need to turn at least one of their Caribbean islands into a strongpoint that can stop a Venezuelan attack and serve as a base to receive reinforcements from Europe to retake what Hugo could seize.
