Axis of Evil: Venezuela? Venezuela is reportedly setting up a million-person "Popular Reserve" to defend against an attack from the US. Sound far-fetched? Not if you consider the US' long track record of aiding coups of democratic leaders in the region, remarking with great alarm at the "instability" of the country and its leader, and America's history of military interventions there. And, don't forget, Venezuela is the fifth largest oil producer in the world (president Hugo Chavez has said he's expecting Bush to say WMDs have been found in Venezuela, and he promises, ""If there is any [US] aggression, there will be no oil.)"
