The alleged Christian televangelist on Monday called for the U.S. to get back into the political assassination business and to start with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
It's not that the preacher's gone all blood-thirsty or anything like that. It's just that he's been checking out the cost of the war in Iraq and has concluded that assassinations are a more cost-effective route.
"You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson said. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."God forbid! Gotta keep those SUV's rolling! Don't want to try that on $4 per gallon gasoline, now do we?
Here's more of Robertson's revelations:
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said.In other words, Pat wants to have Hugo whacked! Maybe Pat cold get some of his business associates to do the job, since the CIA is so unreliable these days?
"We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator," he continued. "It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."
