Destabilize this

So McCain made a gaffe and kinda mentioned that Hugo Chávez runs some Middle East oil state.



It was a gaffe, that's all. You can see where the dude is coming from. I mean, it's not like his Veep sidekick who thinks that visiting an Irish Pub in Philly last Friday can go in her foreign relations resumé.

The thing that gets me about what McCain said was the other part of the sentence (here it is in script if you can't be bothered to watch the Youtube).

".....(Stress the importance of) ensuring that America is secure, and not dependent on oil from people like Hugo Chavez or other parts of the Middle East which is, we know, could be destabilized under certain sets of circumstances."

Soooooooooooo, what set of circumstances destabilizes Hugo Chávez? Go on....take a wild guess.
