President Hugo Chávez Wednesday warned that if the United States attacks Venezuela to take control of its oil, he would blow up the oil fields, as the Iraqis did in Kuwait.

Chávez claimed that an invasion to Venezuela is being plotted in the US in order to seize its gas and oil riches, which is denied by Washington, reported Reuters.

"If Venezuela is attacked, we will do the same the Iraqis did, since there would be no alternative left, but to blow up our own oil fields, so they do not take our oil… If we are attacked, there would be no oil for nobody," Chávez said during a working meeting with the Presidents of Bolivia, Uruguay, and Paraguay, Evo Morales, Tabaré Vázquez, and Nicanor Duarte, respectively, in Asunción, Paraguay's capital city.

Interview


"I'm worried at seeing the opposition blending in Chávezism"

INTERVIEW Pedro Pablo Fernández faces the tough task of the children of his kind: breaking with the label according to which he is identified as "Eduardo Fernández's son." His categorical, sound style in contrast with his father's calm, smiling mood has helped him frame his own name, in spite of father and son having similar standpoints. A deputy to the Venezuelan National Assembly, an attorney-at-law majoring in economy from the University of Colorado and holder of a Master Degree in Public Policies from Georgetown University, his solitary political performance is nevertheless controversial, particularly after his speech at the parliament during the election of its board, last January.
