Hugo Chavez Calls Bush the Devil

View the approx. 9 minute long video here of Chavez (President of Venezuela) recent remarks to the UN. He calls Bush the devil, saying that he can still smell the sulphur! He makes some excellent remarks about the global South: the Imperialist attitudes of the US, the fact that the South is waking up and mobilizing against it, and suggests that perhaps the UN should be moved to another county, one in the South.

OK, Venezuela is not perfect, but I love this man. He alone (with the exception of the leader of Iran) makes very pointed remarks about the US policy and Bush, without denigrating the US people themselves. It doesn't hurt that he is an excellent, and amusing speaker!
