Hugo has threatened to cut off oil to the US. Here is the article. All because Exxon Mobil has sought legal recourse from Chavez strong arming them out of the oil fields in Venezuela without proper remuneration for their investment.
Exxon Mobil has won a judgement to freeze $12 billion in assets of PDVSA, the Venezuelan national oil company.
