Assassination, Anyone?

A

President Hugo Chavez on Sunday vowed to freeze oil exports to the United States and wage a “100-year war” if Washington ever tried to invade Venezuela.

The United States has repeatedly denied ever trying to overthrow Chavez, but the leftist leader has accused Washington of being behind a failed 2002 coup and of funding opposition groups now seeking a recall referendum on his presidency.

Chavez accused the United States of ousting former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and warned Washington not to “even think about trying something similar in Venezuela.”

Venezuela “has enough allies on this continent to start a 100-year war,” Chavez said during his weekly television show.

Can we just kill him and get it over with. He’s nothing more than a Marxist thug hell bent on undermining Venezuelan democracy.
