Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said life probably existed on the Red Planet, but was destroyed by capitalism and imperialism, Spain’s state-owned RTVE broadcaster reported.
“I’ve always said that it would not be surprising to find out that a civilization existed on Mars, but capitalism got there and finished the planet off,” the Venezuelan leader said in his speech on the occasion of the World Water Day.
errrr…OK Hugo. Whatever you say. You da man.
