Belafonte Calls Bush 'Greatest Terrorist' - Yahoo! News
Monday, January 09, 2006
Belafonte Calls Bush 'Greatest Terrorist' - Yahoo! News: "CARACAS, Venezuela - The American singer and activist Harry Belafonte called President Bush 'the greatest terrorist in the world' on Sunday and said millions of Americans support the socialist revolution of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez. ADVERTISEMENT Belafonte led a delegation of Americans including the actor Danny Glover and the Princeton University scholar Cornel West that met the Venezuelan president for more than six hours late Saturday. Some in the group attended Chavez's television and radio broadcast Sunday. 'No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we're here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution,' Belafonte told Chavez during the broadcast."

    Sigh. I think I'll just go put on my _Calypso_ album and try to forget I read this.

    I have yet to meet one person who agrees with Chavez. But of course I keep different company than Harry Belefonte and Danny Glover, thank goodness.

    HI, Jack
    I like Chavez and despise Bush so I'm not bothered by Belafonte's comments. I suppose in a country this size there are a lot of people who support Chavez, including the ones getting a break on Citgo heating oil.

    Hi Mok!

    I think that the left has their share of mouths just like the right (Pat Robertson for example)

    :)

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".


Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.


Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.


In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
