Question of the Day
Chavez vows revolution won’t end
CARACAS | President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that he has no intention of ceasing his efforts to make Venezuela a socialist country, and he expressed confidence that his allies would take the reins of his “Bolivarian Revolution” if he died or decided to step down.
“There’s no end here, this is going to continue,” said Mr. Chavez, referring to the political movement he named after 19th-century independence hero Simon Bolivar.
Mr. Chavez, the anti-American former paratroop commander first elected in 1998, said his close confidants would undoubtedly assume power and continue his efforts to steer Venezuela toward socialism if he were to die or retire from politics.
“I don’t fear death,” he said during an interview broadcast on the local Televen television channel.
Taliban demands death for U.S. diplomat
MIRANSHAH | The Pakistani Taliban on Sunday insisted that the government execute a U.S. official who fatally shot men he believed were trying to rob him or hand him over to the Islamic terrorist group.
“We demand that the Pakistani government hang Raymond Davis or otherwise hand him over to us. We will decide his fate,” Azam Tariq, a spokesman for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, said. “He is a killer, he has killed two innocent Pakistanis. We will take revenge for them.”
Mr. Tariq claimed that Mr. Davis is a spy, but the State Department identified him as a diplomat attached to the U.S. Consulate in Lahore.
The shooting has sparked a diplomatic crisis between Washington and Islamabad after the U.S. demanded that Mr. Davis, who shot two Pakistani motorcyclists on Jan. 27, be freed on the grounds of diplomatic immunity.
