Venezuela and Colombia are Spanish-speaking nations on the northern coast of South America. In 2009, the leader of Venezuela was Hugo Chavez, a self-styled Socialist who is an ally of Cuba and a proclaimed foe of the United States and world capitalism. The president at that time of Colombia was Álvaro Uribe Vélez. Colombia is an ally of the United States.

These two nations are at odds, largely due to the political differences of their leaders. Below are resources on this ongoing conflict.
