American Fatwah - What a country

Did you see where Pat Robertson issued a fatwah on Hugo Chavez's head? Jesus! Now, if Chavez he does get hit, either by a Born-Again doing the reverend's business or some crazy Venezuelan, we'll get blamed and there'll be Latino rucksackers on the Florida Gold Coast. And, you know, we're at a real disadvantage at this asymmetrical war stuff. You can't send a carrier task force against some suicide-belted guy up from the slums of Caracas. Not to mention, what happens if El Presidente dies of natural causes? I think I'll watch Bananas again and see how Cosell handled it.
