American Mullah

Fresh from praying for the deaths of American Supreme Court Justices, fiery radical cleric Pat Robertson is now pushing for the covert assassination of foreign political leaders. As Atrios correctly notes, Robertson is calling for the death of Hugo Chavez simply for the crime of being the leader of an oil rich country with little love for the current American government.

Straight from the Mullah's mouth:

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. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger and the United ... This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
