Radical cleric calls for assassination of president.

Thou shalt kill, says Christian preacherman Pat Robertson. (Sort of.) Speaking of Venezuela's democratically elected president, Hugo Chavez, Robertson says, "[I]f he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war."

you didn't quote enough, paul. after the quote you pulled, Mullah Robertson goes on to lay out Chavez's dastardly infraction that is worthy of death:

"We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

Assasination: it's what Jesus would do.
