Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez severely criticized the war in Iraq on Sunday, calling US President George W. Bush a "coward" for not taking personal command of US troops in Iraq. In his harshest words for Bush in months, Chavez also urged God to free the world of the threat posed by "Mr. Danger," a nickname he frequently uses for Bush, and accused Washington of leading efforts to isolate his "revolutionary" government. "I'm going to tell you something Mr. Danger: You are a coward, do you know that?" Chavez said. "Why don't you go to Iraq to command your armed forces? It's very easy to command them from so far away."
