Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela's socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday.
"I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet," Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day.
Chavez, who also holds capitalism responsible for many of the world's problems, warned that water supplies on Earth were drying up.
"Careful! Here on planet Earth where hundreds of years ago or less there were great forests, now there are deserts. Where there were rivers, there are deserts," Chavez said, sipping from a glass of water.
He added that the West's attacks on Libya were about water and oil reserves.
what was that?...
You forgot to add the most important part of the story!!
"... said a tyrant who has murdered countless numbers of his own population!"
I can agree with that. In fact, there is talk of going to Mars now.
And surely you have heard of the face on Mars, and the talk of a buried civilization there? Go to Enterprise Mission.com.
There is talk on the alternet about the Elites going to Mars when the stuff hits the fan here.
And I do believe Obama snufffed the Moon mission in favor of a shuttle to Mars???
And I heartily agree that Capitalists and Imperialists have ruined this Earth. No question in my mind.
It's all about greed, and mine mine mine.
LIKE that old Cree Indian(?) philosphy says:
Only when you have destroyed everything will you learn that money cannot be eaten.
... you ... agree that...mars is uninhabitable because... of capitalism...?
This only goes to show how extreme the left is, how they will say ANYTHING to advance their cause, oppression of the people of the world ruled by elites lions like Chavez, Obama's friend!
Do you really think that this "shows how extreme the left is" or are you more intelligent than that?
I think the current regime in Burma goes to disparage anyone who's ever had a right-wing thought...
Do you have to ask? I'm not the one talking about how life on mars was destroyed by capitalism. I'm not the one that posted this either. Who but a left wing loon would even bother posting such nonsense? And why? What other reason but that they believe thus to be possible? And why wouldn't they buy into this after all they bought unto global warming! And you're just as bad questioning MY intelligence when the evidence to support what I said is right here for all to see!
Hey i posted this on hub and I posted this because I found it ridiculous...
Apparently Chavez and LMC didn't think it ridiculous! How long before we see the liberal protestors carrying signs to save the Earth from capitalism?
that too is stupidity according to me...capitalism is needed thing...yes there needs to be checks on that which left does but if left believes that capitalism is not needed , they are mistaken...
Oh god, you've been sucked into one of her circular arguments! Don't do it mate!
Noooooo!!! Her blinkered black and white view of the world will be the end of us all on these forums!!!
You're clearly stupider than I thought. Read back through what you've written, then pour yourself a cup of tea and chill out.
What has Obama to do with it...agreed obama is visionary and is not small thinker like many capitalist are but without capitalism world can't work...we need capitalist to make world go run and left to keep them in check...both balance each other...
staying to topic this comment is ridiculous ...life on mars itself is unproven thing , forget about capitalism wiping it out...it is like blaming capitalism for japan earthquake...
"Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela's socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday."
Not quite true. Chavez is actually a Martian who escaped from Mars. He should know!
