The Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez tore into his United States counterpart, referring him to as a racist, imperialist “devil” who has devoted six years in office to military aggression and the oppression of the world’s poorest people.
“The devil came here yesterday,” Chavez said, referring to Bush, “And it smells of sulfur still today.” Chavez accused Bush of having spoken “as if he owned the world” and said a psychiatrist could be called to analyze the statement. “As the spokesman of imperialism, he came to share his nostrums to try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world. An Alfred Hitchcock movie could use it as a scenario. I would even propose a title: ‘The Devil’s Recipe.’ ”
The devil came here yesterday,
It smells of sulfur still today
During his exceptionally inflammatory speech he even held up a book by Noam Chomsky on imperialism and said it encapsulated his arguments: “The American empire is doing all it can to consolidate its hegemonistic system of domination, and we cannot allow him to do that. We cannot allow world dictatorship to be consolidated.”
He ended the news conference by saying, “I have a meeting with the axis of evil somewhere around here, so I have to go.”
This speech on one hand can be brushed aside as a lunatic commander speaking against the “Free World” but for a moment try to forget the actual words used in his delivery and attempt to read in-between the lines. He attempts to drive home a very strong message which other leaders were unable to speak against the biggest economic bully of the world, the message was clear and simple, the entire world is sick and tired of seeing this aggressive attitude of the United States of America, and its attempt for world domination.
Chavez in my opinion gave a brilliant speech, a speech that drove in his message with menacing force, he used sensational words which will naturally be quickly picked up by the world media and this itself can be the first step in creating awareness for this problem. Its good to see that these sentiments are not being only portrayed by the Muslim world, but is heartening to see a country in South America finally speak-up against its North American brothers and Hugo simply choose a brilliant time to capture the lime light, is this the first stone shattering window panes at the White House. Reactions?
Watch the speech at the UN Web-cast – THE BOLIVARIAN REPUBLIC OF VENEZUELA

the western media is very biased. they will find a way to discredit chavez any way they can. i was watching cnn and fox news earlier where i saw the iranian president’s press conference. the fox news channel had captioned him as “the president of the axis” instead of “the president of iran”. then there was this speech by the lebanese president (i think) or was it some other lebanese politician. the anchors or analysts on the news desk declared him as a pro syrian politician coz he condemned israel and the security council. sorry to make this really long but i am glad we have chavez around to speak the truth. Muslims need to learn from him.
I saw the speech and all I can say is, Allahu Akbar, Hallelujah, Ameen and Word up!
It takes a lot to speak out like he did. Although it’s always a fine line to walk for a leader to be taken seriously while using words like “he is a devil”.
I find Chavez refreshing. Someone is speaking what we all are thinking. I loved the part when he said “Bush speaks of the world as if he owns it”.
Now ain’t that the truth y’all?
I just ordered the book! Power to the people. A covert dictatorship is hardly government by the people. Kill your TV and learn to read the newspapers as a way to identify propoganda trends. We have all been lied to for generations. The matrix is collapsing and a keyhole into consciousness is awakening the sheeple. BE BRAVE. A coward dies a thousand deaths whereas a brave man dies once but lives forever in the minds of his compatriots!
