Conspiracy in Chile?

An interesting, yet faulty, theory has been floated over at PowerLineBlog conerning the little "fracas" this weekend where the President had to physically pull a Secret Service agent from a mob of Chilean police:

Judging from your comments, I don't think you guys realize the seriousness of what happened in Chile. Let me put it into perspective: the president has been marked for death by hundreds of terrorist groups; he is in a foreign country, one where there have been near contintuous riots against America and against him, personally, over the Iraq War; as he's walking into a banquet hall, the local police intentionally cut him off from his security detail [...]

There are a lot of people out there who want to see George W. Bush dead; alas, there are a lot of heads of state who would not shed a tear. In this day and age, when armed local cops intentionally cut the president off from his security detail, that should be taken as no less a violent act that when an anti-aircraft missile battery "paints" an American plane with fire-control radar.

This writer is probably not far from the mark when he says some heads of state wouldnt mind "offing" W. But even if their is some wish out there to have the Prez taken out, by Chile or any other state, they would quickly scratch the idea once some foreward minded person reminded them of who would take the healm and what his first act as POTUS would be:
