And Chavez is a 'dictator' and 'ruining' Venezuala?

Robertson continues to defend Liberian dictator, but other evangelicals are critical

Liberian President Charles Taylor does not have many friends. And for good reason. The dictator has been indicted by a U.N.-related court for crimes against humanity, has fomented armed rebellion across West Africa, and has been accused of rape, mass murder, using child soldiers, and other atrocities in his days as a militia leader.

During President Bush's trip to Africa, this week, Liberia has been a top priority. He and other officials have repeatedly called for Taylor's resignation. "Until Charles Taylor is out of politics, there isn't going to be any stabilization of the situation in Liberia," National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said last week. "Charles Taylor needs to leave because Charles Taylor is the problem. And Charles Taylor is, by the way, not just a problem for Liberia. has been a source of insurrection and insurgency in surrounding countries. And the efforts to make stable places like Sierre Leone, in which the British are involved, are extremely important to the stability of West Africa. So Charles Taylor is a problem on a number of fronts."

In fact, the U.S. is sending a military team to Liberia to support several West African nations' efforts to bring peace there. More U.S. forces may be sent later, but has promised not to "overextend our troops."

All of this is widely supported by American Christians, with one notable exception: broadcaster Pat Robertson.

"We're undermining a Christian, Baptist president to bring in Muslim rebels to take over the country," he said on his 700 Club show Monday. "And how dare the president of the United States say to the duly elected president of another country, 'You've got to step down."

1. Bushler is a fascist dictator ruining the US
Furthermore, Bushler was not elected, he was installed via judicial fiat (term 1) and fraud (terms 1 & 2).

Chavez is squeaky clean in comparison.

4. I just wished the false meme of him being a 'strongman' and 'dicator'
were shot down with the truth, but that is apparently too much to ask from the news whores.

5. We'll have to do ourselves.
DUers see the Whole Picture of what's goin' on. Heck we could write letters to implore Jon Stewart to do it on future segments..Chavez isn't going away..what with offering a way to get gasoline to the poor in the USA..

How fortunate for Venezuela that Chavez is a very intelligent and compassionate being unlike our occupant in the chimphouse.
