Televangelist Pat Robertson has called for the assassination of democratically elected Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. During the Christian Broadcast Network's show "The 700 Club" Robertson shared his views. "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 (U.S.) 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."

Chavez, who has had his legitamacy repeatedly reaffirmed by referendums, is disliked by the US right wing because of his support of Cuba and his efforts to keep profits from the country's oil industry in the country. The US has already backed one illegal, failed coup attempt in 2002.

It's touching to know that the Middle East isn't the only place where fundamentist preachers call for holy war. The far right is doing their best to turn US into Iran.
