Hugo Chávez's Final Words: 'I Don't Want to Die'
The Guardian via AP ^ | March 7, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 03/07/2013 3:14:31 PM PST by lbryce

Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez died of a massive heart attack after great suffering and inaudibly mouthed his desire to live, the head of the country's presidential guard said.

"He couldn't speak but he said it with his lips … 'I don't want to die. Please don't let me die,' because he loved his country, he sacrificed himself for his country," General Jose Ornella said.

The general said he had spent the past two years with Chávez, including his final moments, as Venezuela's president of 14 years battled an unspecified cancer in the pelvic region.

Hugo: I don't want to die...Please don't let me die.

Fidel:Question: How much of the $10 Billion is liquid,easily converted?

Hugo: That's tough. It's secured in difficult to convert financial instruments.

Fidel:Sorry, Hugo. I need cash NOW!

Is that it? Nothing flowerier than that? How mundane, predictable. I thought for sure, he would say he was done in by the Americans, specifically, the Neocons, Republicans for sure.

He died after great suffering. I'm not sure about that especially if you compare it to the collective suffering he caused.

I heard his last words were of uncontrolled rage against Fidel. "Fidel told me the Cuban health system was the best in the world so I had no problem paying $100,000 per visit which is nothing compared to the $10 Billion reported I was worth. People want to know how an avowed communist gets to accumulate such a unimaginable amount in so short of time. It's not merely the amount of money at all that people resented, it's the very principle of having accumulated, accumulated in Venezuelan parlance to mean forcibly removed from others, that angers them. Money that belonged to others, landowners usurped of their property, money as intrinsically evil, avarice, greed, money as dirty, money the very poisoned fruit of the capitalist tree. Hugo, how could you?

Does anyone really believe he didn’t want to die because he wanted to keep working to save his country?

Even libtards need be embarrassed to try to say they believe this crap.

He knew where he was going. That’s why he didn’t want to die.

When Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini died in June 1989, there was a brutal heat wave in Tehran. Iranian forces sprayed the crowds who took to the streets with water to prevent heat stroke. The quip on the streets of Tehran at the time was “the old man was so senile, he forgot to close the door on the way down.” With the passing of Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, Khomeini surely has company.

Michael Rubin

And the two of them can prepare the place for A’jad when his time is up.

Don't worry, I'm sure they're preparing a nice warm room down there for Fidel, right next to the Teddy Kennedy suite.

The guy has critical cancer but he dies from having eaten too many bologna sandwiches.

I wonder if butts can be nationalized in Hell.

Reminds me of another profile in courage: a twice-wounded Guevara, his gun rendered useless, shouted, “Do not shoot! I am Che Guevara and I am worth more to you alive than dead.”

I’m kind of sad that Hugo died like that...

No tyrant should ever die of natural causes. Sad, really.

Here’s a little horror story that is true . . .

A close relative supervised a major metropolitan hospital’s cardiac rehab facility. Early in her career, she was working with one patient in the cardiac care center and another patient was having a heart attack (or something) across the hall. The emergency people were working to revive this man and he came back for a moment screaming loud enough to be heard across the hall “Don’t let me die - they’re waiting for me!” He expired again and was revived again. His screams of horror were all about somebody or something waiting for him on the other side. Three times he flatlined and came back. The last time whoever it was got him for good.

Maybe Hugo didn’t wanna go because he had company, too?

Interesting. It reminds ME of a story of my own. There's this great little book, 900 Last Words before Dying on the purported last words of famous people. Frank Sinatra was reported as his last words to be, I'm losing, I'm losing.... The story you mentioned reminded me of a story in the book where the priest was administering the last right to the philosopher of the French Revolution, Voltaire. Priest:I call upon you to renounce Satan. Voltaire:Come,come. Now is NOT he time to be making enemies.

"He couldn't speak but he said it with his lips … 'I don't want to die. Please don't let me die,' because he loved his country, he sacrificed himself for his country, wasn't ready to face El Diablo yet and he didn't have enough sunburn lotion." General Jose Ornella said.

Haven’t read through the Hugo threads - just glad the SOB is dead. If I could draw I would do a cartoon of the devil greeting Hugo in hell & something about waiting on Fidel and Barak to fill out the foursome.

Hahah...of course he doesn't want to die.

He knows in his heart of hearts that he is on the wrong side of destiny.

Don't worry Hugo...hell is hungry for your arrival

I don't want to sidetrack this conversation, but I had the same feeling about Chavez and his last words. He knew, or sensed, what was coming. Years ago I was a member at a church that had several EMT's and Parmedics in the congregation. One of them was still haunted by the screams and look of terror on the face of an accident victim, as they died in the ambulance. She had no doubt they'd seen what was coming. Brrrrr.
