Chavez: "Laser sniper tried to kill me"

Chavez reiterates that 'everything indicates they're trying to kill me'

The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, reiterated today that, again, his most radical opponents have reactivated their assasination plans against him and 'everything indicates that they will be trying to kill me because of what will happen on Sunday'.

Next Sunday, Venezuelans will vote on a constitutional reform with which Chavez intends to install a 'socialism of the 21st century', which his opponents means the installation of a personal dictatorship.

In the [campaign] event, he repeated that recently "a strange light traveled through my body, around here, where my heart is, and then around here", he said while pointing to his head.

"Most likely it was a sniper hiding 100 or 200 meters away in a Caracas building, who aimed a weapon equiped with telescopic sight guided by rays, of which he was alerted to by a TV viewer who immediately alerted the authorities".

His Cuban colleague, Fidel Castro, to whom he said he showed the video when he visited Havana, "told me it was a sniper who didn't fire because he could have gotten cold feet at the precise moment".

Chavez concluded his story by singing a Mexican ranchera song, which chorus goes like this: "I fell from a cloud at 20 meters high, and that was my great adventure"

~ end (amateur) translation ~

More fun (in Spanish) at source.

Hugo - The gift that keeps on taking.

Pray for the Venezuelan people so they wake up and shut up this dangerous clown on Sunday.

Chico! Remember, one speeding bullet can change the coarse of a mighty river. End it before he ends you!

You know it wasn’t an American sniper or he’d be dead.

Don't worry Hugo, that was just the Devils way of showing his approval.

He can't give out halo's.

Sugar pie, if as light had traveled through your heart, you would be dead.

Some comments on that board say that the sniper gave up because he couldn’t locate a heart or a brain.

I think the verb “recorrió” is better translated as “crossed”. Not “went through”.

The laser crossed his body.

Another obvious sympathy ploy.

One of his supporters waved around a laser pointer while another taped it and he plays it off as an “attempted assassination.”

Real snipers don’t need those sort of gimmicks. One shot, one kill. Hugo would have been dead meat.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

The flunky with the laser pointer is enjoying his new rancho.

You can fool some of the people some of the time, but even more when you keep them ignorant.

If it was a professional sniper, he wouldn't have gotten cold feet at the "precise moment." More likely it was a kid with a laser pointer.
