"The irresponsible US government does not stop for one minute to think that killing the head of state in Venezuela, or a civil war there, given its huge oil reserves," Fidel Castro wrote in an editorial in Granma, the Cuban Communist Party's newspaper.
Castro wrote he had cautioned his Venezuelan ally "very seriously" when they met on November 21.
He had highlighted "the risks of assassination he was exposing himself to by constantly traveling in open-top vehicles," at the meeting.
Chavez is a vocal critic of US president George W. Bush's warmongering policies.He earlier said that Bush must be taken to a madhouse.
