In a tirade that would put Nekita Khrushchev to shame, Venezuela’s President insulted President Bush and used extreme…shall we say...colorful language to describe the US:
“The Devil [Bush] came here [to the UN] yesterday, I can still smell the sulfur (as he gave a sign of the cross)…he came here talking as if he were the owner of the world.” He then proceeded to propose moving the UN out of the United States, called President Bush the worlds leading terrorist and the United States a terrorist nation, a nation that “harbors and supports terrorists.” During the speech, Chavez held up the leftist Bible; Noam Chomsky’s ‘Hemogony or Survival’. And described anti-US forces in the Middle East as his "Arab brothers." He continued: “The United States empire is on its way down and it will be finished in the near future, inshallah," ending the statement with the Arabic phrase for "God willing." Maybe it’s just me.
