GET READY FOR WAR OF RESISTANCE AGAINST U.S. SAYS CHAVEZ
From OhMyNews :
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Sunday said he wants to update military training methods to prepare for a 'War Of Resistance' against U.S. troops.
"He said Venezuela's military has begun instilling in soldiers the concept of 'asymmetric war' _ in which guerrilla tactics like hit-and-run attacks are used to counter a stronger military force.
"'It's our responsibility to prepare ourselves for a war of resistance,' Chavez said during his weekly broadcast.
"The U.S. government has repeatedly denied Chavez's claims that it is considering a military attack to oust him. But Chavez warned U.S. President George W. Bush not to try it.
'''He would totally bite the dust,' Chavez said. 'We are prepared to defend this land whatever it takes.'
"Military commanders shouldn't wait to receive new training manuals, Chavez said, but rather should take initiative in laying out the new military doctrine. 'We have to make it all new,' he said.
"Chavez, a former army paratroop commander, said the mountains around Caracas provide excellent cover and are 'ideal for a war of resistance.'
"He recalled how Indians armed only with bows and arrows once held off the Spanish."
