If it was this easy to resolve, why send troops to the border so quickly? Maybe it's my suspicious nature, but I don't trust Chavez to abide by this. It's too drastic a turnaround from his recent rhetoric and out of character. Look for some new excuse for Chavez to actually send in his troops. And if/when it happens... remember where you heard it first.

Just remember where you heard it first, lol. It's just so out of character for him that I began to wonder what his motives were. As far as what he knows... Boosh is da debil! I wouldn't place a lot of confidence in his reasoning ability.
Also, I don't know if we would send troops. I'd like to think so, but getting involved in combat operations in South America while we're still having to work so hard in Iraq and Afghanistan might be tricky. Never mind the political fallout now that President Bush has endorsed John McCain. It would be handing a huge propaganda point to the Democrats.
It's certainly not a given at this point, and I'd bet that Chavez is aware of that. Trusting in his sincerity is just not something I'm prepared to do yet ever.

Maybe so and you're right about the Colombians... they won't cave to Chavez or FARC. The position Chavez is in at home is also a powerful reason for him to direct attention somewhere else and try to inspire support from the people through nationalism.
I still don't trust the fat SOB.
