Quote# 2712

You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he [Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez] thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war.

No futher questions, your honor.

In fact, I don't think that the prosecution actually needed to be here.

Because we all know the phrase, 'Take him out', is a just another way of saying we should talk with him and reach a reasonible understanding.

Ok, now folks, let's have just a bit of a reality check here. I'm not one for saying that Pat Robertson is right about much of anything ... but this time ...

Hugo Chavez is a self-proclaimed Maoist. He was the first western leader to visit Saddam after the first Gulf War. He is a close personal friend and tent-buddy of Qaddaffi. He routinely offers training, equipment, sanctuary, and transportation to Cuba for FARC guerillas from Colombia. There are links between Chavez, FARC, Al Qaeda, and the cocaine trade.

Make no mistake, Chavez needs to be killed.

Franz Ferdinand, anybody?

If that's not enough for you, just look at the martyr angle - did you know, for example, that the British seriously planned an attempt to assassinate Hitler at the Berghof? They didn't go through with it, and perhaps the most important reason was that they knew full well that assassinating Hitler rather than defeating him in a "fair fight" would make a martyr of him, and Nazism and the Hitler cult would probably then never die.

And it will be far more expensive trying to convince your followers what happened with "thou shalt not kill"

Pat Robertson. The Religious Right's own carrier of Foot-in-Mouth disease.

You're a sad loss to the Diplomatic Corps, Pat.

And don't expect that letter appointing you to the post of Secretary-General of the UN, neither.
