Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, calling US President George W. Bush "the devil." "The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, referring to Bush's address on Tuesday. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world." The leftist leader, who has joined Iran in opposing US influence, accused Washington of "domination, exploitation and pillage of peoples of the world." "We appeal to the people of the United States and the world to halt this threat, which is like a sword hanging over our head," he said. He also said the UN in its current system "doesn't work" and is "antidemocratic." He called for reform, saying the US government's "immoral veto" had allowed recent Israeli bombings of Lebanon to continue unabated for more than a month.
