Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has come up with a new conspiracy, the US is behind his bout with cancer and those around who have allied themselves with the South American dictator. Well alrighty then, just when Chavez was beginning to say some things that made sense, along comes this whopper.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez hinted that the U.S. may be behind a “very strange” bout of cancer affecting several leaders aligned with him in South America.
Chavez, speaking a day after Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, said the Central Intelligence Agency was behind chemical experiments in Guatemala in the 1940s and that it’s possible that in years to come a plot will be uncovered that shows the U.S. spread cancer as a political weapon against its critics.
So Chavez blames the US for cancer. Maybe these folks might want to blame socialized medicine and the lack thereof of proper medical care. I would tend to agree with the American Thinker, when it comes to trying to inject an individual with cancer cells and the probability of that person actually contracting cancer. If you can get that closed to a crazed dictator, you would most likley inject them with air and create an embolism or some other toxic serum rather than taking the chance of them contract cancer.
Chavez, who was diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer in June and had a baseball-sized tumor removed in Cuba, has called for a regional summit of leaders who have battled cancer including Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva and Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo.
“I’m just sharing my thoughts, but it’s very, very, very strange,” Chavez said. “Evo take care of yourself, Correa, be careful, we just don’t know,” he said, referring to Evo Morales and Rafael Correa, the leaders of Bolivia and Ecuador.
