Chavez Says: Execute Bush Before Saddam

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Chavez: Bush should be tried for genocide

Nov. 8, 2006

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday that he opposes the death penalty – whether for former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein or anyone else – but added that if any leader should be condemned for genocide, it is US President George W. Bush.

Chavez referred briefly to the verdict in Saddam’s case as he said the US government’s quagmire in Iraq shows "a much-weakened empire."

"They’re bogged down there in Iraq. Surely enough, they’ve sentenced ex-President Saddam Hussein to death," Chavez said. "We oppose the death penalty in the first place. It’s a matter of principles.

"But if it were a question of a sentence, the first who’d have to be condemned to the greatest sentence established on this planet is the president of the United States … if it were a question of those who perpetrate genocide."

It’s nice to see that Chavez, the New York Times and Nancy Pelosi are all on the same page.

As usual.
