Give Chavez What He Wants

South American thug Hugo Chavez wants to be put on the United States' list of "State Sponsors of Terrorism" so they "can shove it".

"They threatened to put us on the list of terrorists that they've got there. Great, let them make their list and shove it in their ... pocket," Chavez said with a pause for comic effect.

Interesting.  I've written before about this dictator here, and here, and here.  Notably (perhaps only to me, heh), in the comments of that last post I stated:

By putting them on the list, we stop buying their oil. Stop buying their oil, their economy takes the hit. The economy takes the hit, the people take a more active role in removing the problem, which is Chavez.

If they're already disaffected with his policies because it screws up their lives, they're going to become more disaffected if continuing his policies screw up their lives even further. Nationalism isn't going to save him because he's beaten that horse to death already. Besides, they are a state sponsor of terrorism, let's call it as we see it and let the chips fall where they may. That's the morally courageous path.

"Please don't throw me in that briar patch! put me on that State Sponsor of Terrorism List!"  Br'er Rabbit Chavez doesn't want on that list because then we don't buy his oil.  The thing to do is, give him what he says he wants and let him reap that harvest.
