I wonder if, under the British Government's latest proposals to outlaw crazy clerics, they would do anything about Nutty US evangelist Pat Robertson. He has called for the United States to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez because... "a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability." Somehow, I feel that it is extremely unlikely that the Bush/Blair doctrine of The War against Terror will be applied to this sort of dangerous religous lunatic. Perhaps the worrying thing is that 7 million sad people are supposed to watch this tripe!

Interestingly, Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld felt moved to comment, that..."Our department doesn't do that kind of thing. It's against the law,".

Oh yes, of course. "I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves." — Henry Kissinger following the coup of 9/11 which led to the death of Chilean President Salvador Allende.
