Re: Robertson endorses assassinating Chavez
There's plenty wrong with Chavez, but we in the U.S. don't get to question election legitimacy anymore. We punted that privilege.
Vladmir Putin sets himself up to be President for life? Oh well. A group of Haitians decides it's easier to win power with machine guns than at the polls? Have at it.
Muslim extremism? In Venezuela? Are there Muslims in Venezuela? That strikes me like worrying about a Hindu attack from Iceland.
Anyway, Chavez has committed the great sin of not liking us. Big deal. Honestly I'm not sure why Bolivia hasn't declared war on us for harboring the senior management of Bechtel, talk about having a terrorist enclave inside your borders. Let Chavez foment away. If we act responsibly and treat the nations in South and Central America with respect, it'll fall on deaf ears. If we reprise our usual act where we vacillate between ripping them off and strong-arming them, then Chavez will see a lot of heads nodding affirmations when he's tearing into us.
Pat Robertson is the master of the Christian fatwah.
