Colombia: FARC arms traced to Venezuela

I hate to keep harping on this like a broken record, but CNN is reporting that a recent seizure of weapons from left-wing, marxist paramilitary rebels FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarios de Colombia) can be traced back to our "friends" in Venezuela.
"Shoulder-launched anti-tank weapons purchased by Venezuela have ended up in the hands of guerillas, Colombian Vice President Francisco Santos said. In an interview with Caracol Radio on Monday, Santos addressed local reports of anti-tank weapons manufactured in Sweden being seized from members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, and traced to Venezuela. "This is not the first time"....Santos said. The weapons have been identified as AT-4 shoulder-fired rockets manufactured by Saab Bofors Dynamics of Sweden according to Jane's Defence Weekly."
Great, just what we need. With North Korea and Iran getting a free pass to do anything they want, what demotivator exists for Venezuela to curb it's plans to expand it's circle of influence and spread socialism throughout the hemisphere?
