Venezuela

Well, heck, look at that, they don't want to sell us their oil.  I remember what we did last time a democratically elected government sat on a pile of oil and didn't play ball, and it looks like Pat Robertson is suggesting that again.  (Well, not with an assassination, that would be wrong.  We'd just, y'know, kidnap their president.  Just a little.)

But after we kidnap Chavez, there's still a power vacuum.  Who do we know who has experience dictating over a country rich in oil, who's out of a job lately?  We've put him in charge of countries before, why not do it again?

Saddam Hussein for President of Venezuela, 2005!  "HusseinForVenezula.com" anyone?

For the record, we didn't assasinate Iraq's prez. I'm not sure we've technically kidnapped him. We've, um, forcefully removed him from power.

Which democratically elected government are you refering to? I would have thought Iraq except for the democratically elected part.

Hm, I guess Hussein's predecessor's government was a theocracy, wasn't it?

Enh. Don't bother me with details. :)
