The nicest thing that can probably be said about Pat Robertson's latest pronouncement is that he doesn't know what he is talking about. Sure Chavez is an unsavory character, but the United States doesn't (and shouldn't) have a policy of assassination and Christians particularly shouldn't endorse that kind of idiocy.
"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson told viewers on his "The 700 Club" show Monday. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war."
Ugh. I was in favor of the Iraq war, of being aggressive on terrorism, but this is just wrong. There have to be better ways to fill airtime - including an apology.
