Yesterday the US religious broadcaster Pat Robertson publicly called for assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
According to BBC he said:
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 $200bn 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."
While President Chavez wisely declined to comment his deputy said Mr Robertson had made "terrorist" remarks and the country was studying its legal options.
Your blogger suggests that the US government should immediately send this religious extremist to Guantanamo Bay.
