"Belafonte Calls Bush 'Greatest Terrorist'"

Ian James Common Dreams "Belafonte Calls Bush 'Greatest Terrorist'":

"The American singer and activist Harry Belafonte called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world" on Sunday and said millions of Americans support the socialist revolution of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

Belafonte led a delegation of Americans including the actor Danny Glover and the Princeton University scholar Cornel West that met the Venezuelan president for more than six hours late Saturday. Some in the group attended Chavez's television and radio broadcast Sunday.

"No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we're here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution," Belafonte told Chavez during the broadcast. (more)

This is great stuff -- but the masses still have to take all power from the bourgeoisie and arm themselves against counter-revolution. Especially from the world's greatest terrorist empire.
