Chavez: Is U.S. behind bout of cancer?
CNN ^ | 28 Dec 2011

Posted on 12/28/2011 4:09:52 PM PST by mandaladon

Caracas, Venezuela (CNN) -- A day after officials announced the cancer diagnosis of Argentina's president, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wondered Wednesday if the United States could be infecting the region's leaders with the illness.

Five current or former Latin American presidents have battled cancer in the past few years, including Chavez himself, who claims to have beaten an unspecified cancer.

Chavez prefaced his remarks at a military event in Caracas by saying, "I don't want to make any reckless accusations," but the Venezuelan president said he was concerned by something he finds "very, very, very strange."

"Would it be strange if (the United States) had developed a technology to induce cancer, and for no one to know it?" he asked.

Chavez cited the revelation this year that the United States, between 1946 and 1948, had carried out human experiments in Guatemala where subjects were exposed to sexually transmitted diseases.

That was 50 years ago, Chavez said. Will it be discovered 50 years from now that the United States was infecting presidents with cancer, he posited?

"I don't know. I'm just putting the thought out there," Chavez said.

The Venezuelan president, who has a firm anti-U.S. stance, frequently hurls accusations at his political enemies, domestic and foreign. He has repeatedly said the United States is trying to destabilize his government.

Everything we have here causes cancer, Chavy. Just read the back of any gum wrapper.

Chavez is dying and reeks of desperation. He’ll say anything, but what he really needs is to make peace with his Maker.

If we were able to do that, why would we have waited so long. Chavez wants to give the US God-like power to inflame his clique of cranks. The funniest part is his demagoguery shows his contempt for the rubes who buy in to his ridiculous rants.

Dear Hugo,

Yes, it's true. Be sure to tell all your fellow tyrants, including our jug-eared SCOAMF CinC.

Love,
The U.S.A.

Yes. Yes we are.

Didn't you ever read "The Men Who Stare At Goats", Hugo?

We have specially trained forces who sit all day in the bowels of the Pentagon and think really bad thoughts about certain select individuals.

You think you might not be one of them, Hugo?

Ha.

Ha Ha

BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Fear us, Hugo. Fear us.

BWHAHAHAHAHAHA

I understand there is one op who is a specialist in making weenies fall off.

I don't want to make any reckless accusations, but is Hugo Chavez a raving dumbass?

I don't know. I'm just putting the thought out there. ;-)

It would be just too great if someone could convince him that Penn did pass it to him on purpose.

And the Cigars from Cuba and Cocaine from South America is improving every ones health ? They just do not make humans any dumber then leftists leaders.

Dear Chavez, God has given you cancer. Why ? Because you violated one of his commandments. Thou shall not steal.

I think there's still time for him to run for the GOP POTUS nomination.

I would vote for him over FLIP SLICK WILLARD RINO ROMNEY.

My differential diagnosis is that being a communist kleptocrat does not confer immunity from cancer.

(Either that, or it’s not the C.I.A. It’s the G.O D.)

Sure, Hugo, but it wasn’t cancer. A Rick Perry operative stuck a Gardasil filled needle in your buttocks and gave you mental retardation.

What he really needs is a couple rounds from a peace maker.

So,where was Chavez 50 years ago— was he in Guatemala? Answer: hell, no. More idiotic ramblings from a limited intellect commie strongman dictator— another noriega. The dope dealing, and most likely using could have caused your problems, Hugo.

As for the Argentinian female president— the incidence of thyroid cancer is extremely high IN ALL FEMALES regardless of their racial background— why— because of the impact of a far more complex hormonal system under pituitary control. Chavez is so smart maybe he should try a basic medical school text— they have those in Venezuela despite all efforts to eradicate intelligence and learning.

Is Chavez a US hating lunatic? It appears so, considering he is trying to blame his health problems on capitalism.

Marxists are atheists. In Hugo’s case, his father was a test tube and his mother was a beaker. That’s his maker.

Hugo is behind his own cancer.

Cancer is the result of wrong diet, and wrong lifestyle; there is no way to ‘give’ someone cancer.
