U.S. Imposes Arms Ban on Venezuela

The United States is imposing a ban on arms sales to Venezuela because of what it claims is a lack of support by President Hugo Chavez's leftist government for counterterrorism efforts, a State Department official said Monday.

The official said Venezuela has been providing a safe haven for the two main leftist guerrilla groups in Colombia. The official spoke only on the condition of anonymity because the arms sale ban had not yet been announced.

We can only assume they mean the US definition of counter terrorism , maybe Chavez should have gone on Television and said 'bring em on' that could have brought him on side.
