Ex-soccer star Maradona tells Chavez he hates U.S. Sun Aug 19, 2007 4:21PM EDT
CARACAS (Reuters) - Former Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona on Sunday said he hates the United States "with all my strength" during an appearance on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's weekly television show.
The leftist soccer legend, like the fiercely anti-U.S. Chavez, is a close ally of Cuba's Fidel Castro.
"I believe in Chavez, I am Chavista ... . Everything Fidel does, everything Chavez does for me is the best (that can be done)," Maradona said, sitting with Chavez on the set of the president's Sunday talk show.
"I hate everything that comes from the United States. I hate it with all my strength," he added to thunderous applause and cheering from the hundreds of Chavez supporters gathered in an auditorium for the show.
Chavez, a self-described socialist revolutionary, is an unrelenting critic of Washington and frequently describes the United States as a decadent empire.
U.S. State Department officials call Chavez a threat to regional democracy and accuse him of using the OPEC nation's oil wealth to meddle in the affairs of neighboring nations.
Maradona, 46, received drug rehabilitation treatment in Cuba following a hospital stay in 2000 linked to cocaine use. In 2005 he launched a television talk show that lasted one season.

Never heard of her. ;-)
Must be running for vice president for life.
I think Maradona is a singer married to some English guy.
That’s just depressing. How many will blindly agree because he was good at sports...and cocaine?
Sounds about right.
does maradona have man hands too?
So, Diego, I guess that’s not a milk mustache?
Didn’t Maradona play Evita?
Yeah,who can ever forget Maradonas “Don’t cry for me Venezuela”?
Well we hate you too Maradona, so FOAD you filthy degenerate pinko sh!tbag.
yeah the drugs ruined him......in fact I think they damaged his brain cells based upon these comments!
Maradona and Colin Farrell. Sheesh.
It stands to reason because he has been on drugs and a nut case for many, many years. This is the reason he was kicked off his team many years ago.
And no reason for alarm. He has been on Castros side for many years once he was given the door.
Ugh... Hollywood is in bed with Third World Communism. LITERALLY.
As any english person will tell you - we HATE few people more than we do maradona.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_of_God_goal Look it up - he will burn in hell - and not just for that, he's a nasty, selfish bastard. I'm not to fond of Argentinians as it goes - they've never got over the beating we gave them.
Put that in your bong and smoke it you fat junkie!
