The "Empire of the Yanks"

Regular visits to Moscow by Venezuelan blunderbuss Hugo Chávez are a gift from the heavens to ER. His latest visit did not disappoint. According to the NYTimes:
“Mr. Chávez began his visit with a two-and-a-half-hour speech to Moscow students in which he berated the United States for seeking to control the world with what he called a ‘terrorist’ empire…The United States wants to dominate the entire world, he told about 1,000 students. ‘The empire of the Yanks will fall this century, and I am not talking about the end of the century but in the next decades.’"
Has a gauntlet been thrown? Well then Sr. Chávez we’ll be happy to take that bet. But should the Bolivarian revolution fail before "the next decades" are over, how will we collect?
