Coke-Boy Hugo Threatening To Cut Off Oil Exports to US.

Story here.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez on Sunday threatened to cut off oil sales to the United States if Exxon Mobil Corp. wins court judgments to seize his government's assets.

"If you end up freezing (Venezuelan assets) and it harms us, we're going to harm you," Chavez said. "Do you know how? We aren't going to send oil to the United States. Take note, Mr. Bush, Mr. Danger."

Exxon Mobil has gone after the assets of state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA in U.S., British and Dutch courts as it challenges the nationalization of a multibillion dollar oil project by Chavez's government.

I stll think the last guy forced out of the ExxonMobil facilities in Venezuala should have been able to throw a switch on a time delay device that would have destroyed those plants.

As for not sending any oil to the US: Can you eat or drink the damn stuff Hugo?
