Suicide bombing, or just plain suicide?

Remember that old joke where a guy puts a gun to his head and shouts, "Everybody freeze or the Polock gets it!"? Well, have a gander at this from the AP.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday again raised the specter of U.S. designs to oust him and promised that his government will blow up his country's oil fields if the United States should ever attack.

U.S. officials have repeatedly denied any military plans against Chavez, but also call him a threat to stability in the region.


If the United States attacks, Chavez said, "We won't have any other alternative - blow up our own oil fields - but they aren't going to take that oil."

Now that's leadership.
