Hugo Chavez: Maybe Capitalism Ended Life on Mars

In other news, there's been a run on tin foil in Venezuela to make those cute little hats guys like Chavez enjoy wearing.
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 must be reading too much Al Gore.
He added that the West's attacks on Libya were about water and oil reserves.
Oh, OK. Has he seen any satellite images of Libya lately? Doesn't look like they're flush with water.
