"So my suggestion was..." 

You may remember Bush's good friend Pat Robertson suggested not to long ago that President Chavez should be assasinated. There was something of an uproar and Robertson backed off saying that he had been misunderstood. When video tape made it very clear exactly what he had said he finally apoligized.

Now it appears he has had yet another change of heart and wants to revert to his original "suggestion":

"This man is setting up a Marxist-type dictatorship in Venezuela. He is trying to spread Marxism throughout South America. He is negotiating with the Iranians to get nuclear material, and he also sent $1.2 million in cash to Osama bin Laden right after [the terrorist attacks of] 9-11," said Mr. Robertson.


"One day we are going to be staring at nuclear weapons, and it will not be [Hurricane] Katrina facing New Orleans, it is going to be a Venezuelan nuke [weapon]. So my suggestion was, is it not a lot cheaper, sometimes, to deal with these problems before you have to have a big war?" he added.

Wow, so either the U.S. offs Chavez now or faces Venezuelan ICBMs a few years from now. Actually, given that Robertson was doing his best as a WMB (Weapon of Mass Bullshit) I'm surprised that he didn't just throw in for good measure that Venezuelan is getting technology from Brazil to build stealth bombers. Imagine that. Venezuelan Stealth Bombers flying undetected over Washington D.C.!
