I may be ignorant, but how is a meeting between Bush and Robertson in 2002 related to his latest remarks? Could you please clarify that for me. Thanks --Deprifry 17:59, August 23, 2005 (UTC)

  • Good question. It's important because it shows this is not just another religious "kook". This is a man who had the ear of the President concerning the invasion of Iraq; therefore what he says can not be dismissed lightly. 67.71.122.236 18:28, 23 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Then make it a paragraph at the end in an edit. --24.163.113.89 18:33, 23 August 2005 (UTC)
No; since this article is about Robertson's opinion on US foreign policy, it is important to show that he has actually spoken to the President about US foreign policy. In addition, the article quite rightly begins by identifying who this person,Robertson,is. Such assassination comments are only "news" because of who Pat Robertson is and what his political status is. This is part of that identification process which must come first; especially since a lot of non-americans have likely never heard of him. 67.71.122.236 18:38, 23 August 2005 (UTC)
  • I took the liberty to restructure the article a bit and added an expanded background on Robertson at the end which I hope satisfies everyone. --Deprifry 18:49, August 23, 2005 (UTC)

The "whole world" knows about Venezuela that the last non-intrinsic US-puppet_president flew with an US_oil-helicopter to the U.S. and that CCN-tv clandestinely continues to organize an US-"coup d'etat" in Venezuela. The proponent has made the point that most Non-US citizens don't know Bush's priests. (Pat Robertson [Presidential Advisor in Foreign Politics] who wants to kill AntiUS_Hugo Jarvez). Are there nonUS-counteracting Security Services? OR. Could You explain me what the US calculates? IF all U.S.-citizens are attacked worldwide THEN they will get the message that others shoot such oil thieves and protect Venezuela's vernacular Mayas & their oil_soil (Conditional Implication)? What are the criminal activities of Navy Seals? Perhaps You could prepare datas & facts & more?

I can't read that last unsigned rave due to weird language like "nonUS-counteracting", but it seems to be a call for killing US citizens worldwide. I hope I am misreading it. As for US oil companies "stealing oil", they buy it at arranged prices from the government in power, that is not stealing. However, many of the governments are corrupt and do steal the money paid to them, rather than spending it on their people. This seems to be a recurrent problem, and I'm not sure how the US could solve it short of invading such countries and installing a less corrupt government. This would not be a good idea.
