Venezuela's Chavez Barks

The collectivist ruler of Venezuela seems to have lost touch with reality.

In an interview published by the Washington Post, he stated, inter alia:


The government of the United States, that's the empire. We have evidence that there are plans in this country to invade Venezuela.


This was shortly after claiming:


This [present U.S.] government is a threat to humanity.


And, after saying:


I could deal with President Bush. I would like very much to be able to debate issues with him. I would like to transform this confrontation, this aggressive rhetoric, into a mature, serious debate on common issues.


Does anyone know of similar "aggressive rhetoric" from members of the executive branch of the U.S. government?

Chavez is apparently following in the footsteps of other collectivist "true believers."

One must wonder whether he actually believes the nonsense he says; and, if so, whether his delusions indicate the existence of a mental disorder.
