Chavez blames the US Navy for the earthquake

I'm not sure I could even make this up.

Say what you want about Hugo Chavez: love him or hate him, there's no more entertaining figure in world politics today. To be honest, Chavez has missed his calling: he should be on the road, warming up crowds with his scintillating stand-up, introducing topless dancers in a Las Vegas-style show.

Gee, I WISH we had the ability to create earthquakes wherever we want! There are several Iranian nuclear weapons facilities I would like to see hit by about a #10 quake!

Chavez is a tired, worn out, wannabe, who convinced the 'duped' he's a Latin American version of Obama. which merely indicates that the vast majority of his citzenry is even more clueless then America's.

Other then that he might be alright in 'standup'.

Thanks.

If we could generate earthquakes just for the heck of it, doesn't he think that we'd cause some suitable pain in our arse to dissapear first? Like maybe Iran, or North Korea, or Venezuala?


Oooops, I said the magic words......

Note to self...next time something bad happens, blame the U.S. Navy....

I feel a headache coming on, would that be the work of a Nimitz class CV, or a Los Angeles attack sub?

Every USN ship of any size does have an earthquake weapon: every time I've ever eaten food or drank coffee from a USN galley I've had an earthquake in my shorts. Those Navy cooks are brewing weapons of mass destruction morning, 'noon, and night.

We ought to take an old US Battleship, or just some old Hulk that didn't make the cut as a floating museum. Put the biggest flag we have on it and strip anything worth money out of it.

We can fill it with garbage, then sneak it in one night and park it about a mile off Venezuela... then come sunrise watch them go berserk trying to sink it.
And when they do...

Let that doofus try and take credit for stopping an invasion and try to fine us for littering at the same time, the poor fool would break his own neck from all the spin.

Meh, Every time there's a major natural disaster people blame some US black project for it. I remember that Alex Jones was claiming that the 2004 Tsunami was caused by a joint US-Israeli nuclear weapons test, Hurricane Katrina was also man-made according to that guy who sees faces and pyramids on Mars.

Looks like we've finally found a use for the battleship in modern warfare.

Are you kidding me? The guy talks for 2 hours a a stretch, waaay too long for an intro act.

He needs to get a job on the insomniac channel where his 'skills' can be put to use helping people to sleep.

No, Obama is a Chavez wannabe. He's not been nearly as successful as Hugo at bringing about socialism in his country.
