Chavez Says
United States
Must Be Destroyed

Hugo Chavez, with musical theatre partner, Jacques Chirac

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez told us all how he really thinks, yesterday in Rome:

Rome, May 12, IRNA-Visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said in Rome on Thursday in case of a military attack against Iran, no country in the world would have access to crude oil.

Chavez made the remark at a press conference, adding, “As Iran’s President Ahmadinejad has reiterated, if Tehran would come under attack, oil would get scarce for everyone.”He also said that the US President George W. Bush should be put to trial at the international court of justice for having launched genocide in Iraq.

“For all the horror it has created around the globe in the course of the past century, the United States’ war machine should be dismantled, since under the current conditions it is a threat against the entire mankind, particularly against our children.”

Chavez added, “The North American empire is the most cruel murderer regime that has ever come to power in world history and a serious threat for all nations.”

He believes the death of the United States had better taken place in the course of the 21st century, because “otherwise the entire world would face the threat of annihilation.”

This is not some crazed college student refocusing anger he feels against his parents, instead on the government. This is the leader of a major nation on the world stage. Now, we have Iran, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela, all openly advocating for the destruction of the America. Words matter. They concretize thought. They form our hearts.

When a world leader openly advocates for the destruction of another country he will have an influence in the hearts of millions, if not billions.

We are fools to allow this to keep going on.
