Chavez threatens to cut Venezuelan oil supply to US
Posted April 14th, 2007 by Tarique

Caracas, April 14 (Xinhua) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has reiterated the 
possibility of cutting his country's oil supply to the US if it attacks 

"If there is a new aggression against our government, there will not be one more
drop of oil for the United States," Chavez Friday told a press conference. "We 
are prepared for it."

Chavez said he would not differentiate between the origin of the aggression, 
whether it is from the US directly or from anti-Venezuelan forces commanded by 

Venezuela delivers 1.3 million barrels of oil to the US daily.

The president believes the US' aggressive attitude comes from big companies 
rather than his counterpart George W. Bush.

"President Bush is not the boss over there, he is just a small figure," he said.
"The big corporations make the decisions, those unscrupulous ones that start 
wars to sell and win billions of dollars."
