Chavez Calls Bush 'The Devil'
AP | September 20, 2006
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, calling President Bush "the devil."
"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."
The leftist leader continued his animated speech with repeated references to the U.S. government and Mr. Bush as imperialist, and warned of a growing movement "of the south."
Chavez hailed the recent meeting of the Nonaligned Nations, presently headed by Cuban President Fidel Castro, as an indication that the international bloc, which generally espouses views contrary to those of the U.S., was growing.
He asked the international community to lend it's support to the movement, even suggesting the U.N. realign itself more closely by relocating to somewhere in the southern hemisphere. "I have suggested Venezuela," he said.
Chavez several times accused Mr. Bush of have a double standard on dealing with terrorism. He said the U.S. government was "protecting terrorists" who were involved with anti-government actions in Venezuela, including a former CIA operative and militant Castro foe wanted in Venezuela for the bombing of a Cuban airliner that killed 73 people.
Before leaving the podium to applause, Chavez, again inciting the "devil" reference to Mr. Bush, said, "it smells of sulfur here, but God is with us!"
