The opposition-run Bolivian Senate repelled Thursday Venezuelan
President Hugo Chávez's "serious meddling" for his warning
against a "machine-gun Vietnam" if his Bolivian counterpart
Evo Morales were overthrown or killed.
During a plenary session, the Senate passed a resolution to express its "deepest concern and disavowal for the serious interference in Bolivia's internal affairs by the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Don Hugo Chávez Frías," AFP reported.
The Venezuelan ruler kicked up a real rumpus in Bolivia when saying last October 14th during his TV and radio show "Aló, Presidente" that his government "would not be arm folded if the oligarchy succeeded in toppling or assassinating Evo."
During his remarks aired from Cuba, Chávez warned that such event could unleash "the machine-gun Vietnam, the war Vietnam."
