    a former friend of mine was in the army, and on one of his Iraq deployments they found a gold plated AK. They gave it to their translator that went around with them as a way to say thanks

    Venezuela: Come for the death of Chavistas, stay for the gold plated AKs.

    Bailout from other nations will occur. It's not in anybody's interest for a country in their region to fall. They will get saved via loot from others, and the reigning party at the time will look like heroes.

    Thank you, come again.

    I honestly don't know much about Latin nations, so I can't answer that definitively, but if there is one thing recent history has shown us, it's that countries don't need to have money to spend it (or in this case, give it away). And the assistance may not come solely from a regional nation.

    I think people are used to looking at national economies in terms of personal finance. If we as people don't have money, we don't eat, have a home, etc. If a nation runs out of money, others step in to help fix it. It could be a place like China that has a similar political setup and is hungry for oil (thus seeing an opportunity to seize), or anyone else.

    I think Leo is correct in that it will be a concern for a while, but ultimately, they will continue on.

    Vuvu is basically China's property right now. And I don't doubt the south american left wing presidents won't try to do something to help. Well, Argentina is broke as fuck too. But holding.

    Brazil is already financing tons of stuff in Cuba, Honduras, Nicaragua and other leftist shitholes. So why not one more?

    Chile's Michelle Bachelet is starting to sway back to the extreme left, she could offer some assistance too. Ecuador was always Chavez's bootlicker, but they're too insignficant to do anything. Same as Bolivia. Who the fuck cares about Bolivia??? Uruguay gonna be too stoned and poor to do something.

    Peru and Colombia are the only ones left, and they are totally opposite of the bolivarianism, so I doubt they will do something.

    UNASUL will probably try to do something, seeing as Chavez bought support using oil money all these years...let's see if the rats won't betray his sucessor and leave him alone.

    Meanwhile, the Castros are gonna be mad because their goose that laid golden eggs is dryI'd give Barney the fuck of his life if he wore a wig and moaned like a JDM girl

    The question for me when it comes to all of these oil shenanigans, is what are the severely impacted countries going to do when the bottom falls out. History says that it won't be pretty. The last time we bled a very nationalistic and prideful country dry (and in this case there are multiple examples), they didn't just roll over and die, they took over a good portion of their continent with plans to conquer the world.

    Sam, Venezuela doesn't have the military power to affect south america. Plus the US would step in almost immediately because Oil.

    Russia on the other hand... "If this site was a physical thing, I'd fire bomb it" - R5S "it was better when phil lived in boxes and we could control him with top ramen packets" - FTFBMo "You're no better than my Indians." -DNBMo

    Jongleur: That's what I was mostly referring to, in all honesty. The reason being that Venezuela and Russia are best buddies and enjoy very strong relations. Together, they could at least be an inconvenience, not necessarily because of the Venezuelan military, but their geographic location (much the same as Cuba was back in the day). Granted, you don't have to be as close as Venezuela to launch a nuclear attack today, but putting manpower there would be a concern.
