Mexico Recalls Ambassador from Venezuela

Mexico recalled its ambassador from Venezuela on Monday after Caracas said it would withdraw its top diplomat instead of apologizing after President Hugo Chavez warned Mexican leader Vicente Fox: "Don't mess with me, sir, because you'll get stung."

Fox said in a television interview that he would meet with Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez to decide what to do next.

Tensions between Fox and Chavez spilled over after this month's Summit of the Americas in Argentina, where Fox defended a U.S.-backed proposal for a Free Trade Area of the Americas while Chavez proclaimed the idea dead.

Well, this is nice. The two Latin American boneheads can't get along with each. If this keeps up maybe there will be a nice little war between these two countries. We could call it, Rumble in the Jungle II (remember Ali and Foreman?). If Mexico and that other country, oh yeah, Venezuela did go to war, would Fox start drafting unemployed Mexicans for his army instead of smuggling them wholesale into the United States? One can only hope.

BTW, Chavez is right, The Free Trade Agreement should be scrapped. It's ruining our economy.
