More on the Pat Robertson story

The reason the Bush administration and their minions are so rabid about Venezuela? They have lots of oil. Why is it that we're only concerned with the "horrible dictators" who have lots of oil?
Televangelist Calls for Chavez' Death

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested on-air that American operatives assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop his country from becoming "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism."
Bullshit! If that were a legitimate concern we would have secured our border with Mexico long before this.
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said Monday on the Christian Broadcast Network's "The 700 Club."

"We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator," he continued.
I have news for you Buckwheat - we didn't need the first $200 billion war.
"It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

Chavez has emerged as one of the most outspoken critics of President Bush, accusing the United States of conspiring to topple his government and possibly backing plots to assassinate him. U.S. officials have called the accusations ridiculous.

"You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson said.
Yeah that makes a lot of sense - IF YOU'RE A FUCKING MANIAC!
"It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."
There it is - the money line. I told you it was about oil!
Robertson, 75, founder of the Christian Coalition of America and a former presidential candidate, accused the United States of failing to act when Chavez was briefly overthrown in 2002.

Electronic pages and a message to a Robertson spokeswoman were not immediately returned Monday evening.

Venezuela is the fifth largest oil exporter and a major supplier of oil to the United States. The CIA estimates that U.S. markets absorb almost 59 percent of Venezuela's total exports.

Venezuela's government has demanded in the past that the United States crack down on Cuban and Venezuelan "terrorists" in Florida who they say are conspiring against Chavez.

Robertson has made controversial statements in the past. In October 2003, he suggested that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device.
Sounds like a terrorist to me.
He has also said that feminism encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
That settles it - Robertson needs to be assassinated.
