Pat Robertson's Gift To Liberals

Posted on Monday, October 03 at 13:02 by elliotsaunders
Did Pat Robertson's comments merely suggest that he advocates the assassination of Chavez? Robertson did not say he wanted Chavez assassinated. What Robertson said was that the government can either engage itself in a costly war (like Iraq) which is a financial disaster. Or, it can use its sniper squad to take Chavez out. Therefore, it would a lot cheaper to assassinate Chavez - so Robertson thinks they should go ahead with the cheap method. Liberals, including Hugo Chavez, attacked Robertson for advocating murder but Robertson's comments revealed the very fact that hit squads are ready to go at any moments notice, any place, any target - once they get orders from Washington. Mr. Robertson publicized this (relatively) hidden factoid and handed liberals a golden opportunity to further publicize governmental/corporate "hit" tactics. To date, Liberals haven't taken advantage of it except to take Mr. Robertson's words out of context. Let's not drop the ball by killing the messenger instead of exposing the real perpetrator.
