Pushing Chavez’s Venezuela into a “rogue nation” status that requires a regime change would certainly find favour amongst the oil interests supporting the Bu****es.
The problem with such an eventuality is that China has been romancing Chavez for the very same resources that the Bu****e supporters find so attractive.
Whether the Bu****es believe they can win a war against China, can finesse China without hostilities, or just don’t give a damn, is anyone’s guess.
The problem is that in any future battle, the ammunition may not be bullets, but dollars.
While it would cost China a heavy financial loss to quickly flood the market with their American Treasury bills, the effect that would have on the financial stability of America would be catastrophic.
Over a longer time period, China needs only to stop purchasing American T-Bills to produce a deep US recession, or worse.
