U.S. Lashes Back After Chavez Forces Envoy From Venezuela
The United States plans to expel Venezuela's ambassador in Washington to retaliate for President Hugo Chavez's decision to expel the U.S. envoy in Caracas, FOX News confirmed Friday.

The U.S. has also imposed sanctions on aides to Chavez in retaliation for his expulsion of the U.S. ambassador.

Venezuela has some of the largest oil reserves outside the Middle East and, despite Chavez's clashes with the Bush administration, he has maintained oil supplies and never before expelled a U.S. ambassador, Reuters reported.

Chavez said he will not restore relations with the U.S. until Bush leaves the White House in January, Reuters reported. [...]

Chavez made the move in solidarity with Bolivia after his Andean ally expelled the U.S. diplomat there, accusing him of aiding violent protests. He said a new American ambassador will not be welcome in Caracas "until there's a U.S. government that respects the people of Latin America," suggesting that diplomatic relations will be scaled back until President Bush leaves the White House.
Restore relations? I think not. We really should use more discretion on where we send ambassadors anyway.
