31. Yes, I've read the same thing.
The US tried 3 TIMES to assassinate Hugo Chavez. It's an interesting story. I believe the last time, Chavez was saved by his cell phone, or he had a cam corder going, and you could see US troops barreling for him, but Chavez slipped away.

Unbelievable story. Of course, this isn't the first time the CIA (or whoever it was) screwed up and "their man" got away.

Now, here's where it gets interesting: Chavez recently signed a contract to supply oil to China. I seriously DOUBT that China is going to allow the US to march in there and assassinate their new business partner.

Once again, the turf just keeps getting smaller and smaller. I'm recalling a cowboy movie, where the 2 are standing out on the dusty street of the Western town. Their guns are loaded, and they're aiming them at each other. The one cowboy says, "This town ain't big enough for the two of us".
