International Diplomacy, 700 Club Style

Posted in Religion, Total Fucking Terror at 11:34 am by

From the Associated Press’ Sue Lindsay :

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson has suggested that American agents assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop his country from becoming “a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism.”

“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. “It’s a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.”

    yes, pat is a little to close to the nations of the world to be no part of them as Jesus said.

  3. James says:

    It’s been reported for years in many credible muckracking journals that Robertson had close business ties (by way of the diamond mining industry) to Mobutu Sese Seko, the late dictator of Zaire. A guy who drove that country into deep poverty. But some strong-arm dictators have God on their side, I suppose.

    It’s irresponsible comments like Robertson’s that make clear why MLB needs a real commisioner — NOW.
