I think that they'd be able to take us.

They forgot one fact that eliminates the threat, we have no way to get any meaningful military force there.

Well, in that case, wholesome Canada can offer to host the conflict ... in Alberta ... in February.

If we schedule it right, we can do it on the university break using student Reservists and without putting too heavy a demand on the Reg Force.

A good topic for a meaningful discussion Shawn. Do you think that any Western powers are going to invade Venezuela in the future. I think that is prohibitive, due to Russia's and China's interests there, and that goes for Cuba too.

On a less serious note and more in tune with the comments here so far: Perhaps the US/Canada would be willing to trade off their interests in S.Korea for Russia's/China's interests in Venezuela.

Seriously, the US/China/Russia are all very aware of the Cold War atmosphere that is brewing. In that respect I'm suggesting that the 21st. century will see most small countries falling under the protection of large nuclear powers, as has been the case with Israel for many years now. Do you, as this pertains to Venezuela? I think that if that's not the case then the US would have whacked tiny Venezuela with a big stick by now.

I don't know Don.

What I do know is that Venezuela is larger than Grenada  ;)

Send down a couple cruise ships and the rest of their navy will finish themselves off by ramming them (again).
