Venezuela - Militia Groups May Be Preparing Armed Conflict if Chavez Wins


Both supporters and opponents of President Chavez are forming militias. Weapons of all kinds are abundant in Venezuela. Both sides are threatening violence, and weaapons are fueling a soaring rate of violent crime, such as robberies committed with rocket-propelled grenades.

Crime is on the rise all over Latin America as weapons are becoming widely distributed. The world is focused on WMDs, but "light" weapons are killing hundreds of thousands all over the world. People kill people, but guns sure make it easier.
