    No answer Monte? Didn't think so. You're incapable.

    Where are Sean Penn, Danny Glover, and Harry Belafonte when you truly need them?

    Your making excuses for the exploitation of Latin American workers. But hey, as long as the bananas were on the table and cheap.

    How many ways must you be told that when its in US foreign policy interests, which include the interests of US based IC's, the US government will be fomenting unrest, covertly sabotaging governments, using the CIA to overthrow them or supporting protesters attempting it themselves. Only if its not in US interests would they let such movements fall on their face. This is established fact, its not secret, one needn't dig deep and long for the documentation, I don't know why you insist otherwise.

    Why, for heaven's sake, should I make excuses for something I think is fine?

    How many ways must you be told that that's not what I'm asking you. I'm asking you to explain your incredibly simplistic train of logic. Do I need to repeat myself?

    He honestly doesn't understand that people might disagree with him on a very basic level. He just can't fathom it.

    Apparently the US has no media bias in this story?
