Chavez insults Bush

The week's news at a glance.

Havana

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez escalated his war of words with the U.S. this week during a visit with Cuban President Fidel Castro. Chavez was responding to recent criticism from Bush administration officials, who accused him of financing anti-democratic movements in Latin America. Chavez said it is President Bush, whom he called a “lord of war,” who represents the real threat to regional stability. In the U.S., Pat Robertson said on the Christian Broadcast Network’s The 700 Club that Chavez is turning his country into “a launching pad for communist infiltration” and that the U.S. should assassinate him, because that would be “cheaper than starting a war.”
