US Christian TV broadcaster Pat Robertson
has called on the US authorities to assasinate President Chávez of Venezuela for exporting islamic fundamentalists and communists globally.
The Venezuelan state, have called for the terrorist minister to face the law.
Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel spoke one day after Mr. Robertson called for the murder of Chávez.
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability,"
"We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."
"You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it.."
"It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."
A spokeswoman for the Christian Broadcasting Network told the BBC: "We are at a time of war and Pat had war on his mind when he made the comments."
Robertson once dealt with feminism.
It "encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
Under U.S. law it is illegal to assassinate the leader of a foreign country in case you didn't know.
Time magazine, has decided that the Reverend Robertson's comments will act as a boost to the Venezualan image.
