And then there's this list of massacres in Pakistan.
    I don't believe I nominated Pakistan for a good government award. Nonetheless, the Cuban regime, supporting tyranny on two continents, was worse.

    True, the Castros did support (what we believed was) the bad guys in the Angolan civil war, and they supported the Sandinistas, to name but two. But they were only able to do that because of their support of the Soviets. One wonders if their support of outside unrest was truly something the Castros wanted to do - which is admittedly likely - or was it at the behest of the Soviets, a condition of the millions of rubles they were being given every year?

    But either way, I still think we should end this stupid embargo and let Wal-Mart, McDonald's, and GM lead the way.

    And they supported Mengistu in Ethiopia.

    Is there any sign that the government in Cuba has moderated its views on Communist governance? Are they willing to let open elections take place now? I haven't heard that....Until then all the average Cuban can do is dream of a day when they are free of Communist, Socialist control, and prosperity returns....Maybe when the brother Castro dies.

    Do I really need to provide a list of nations that do not allow open elections, but with whom we have normal relations?

    If you like, although I don't understand what that has to do with it? Cuba is 90 miles from the Keys....Slightly different situation. Why is it that every discussion with liberal progressives always at some point boils down to "someone else does it too"... Do you understand how 5 year old that sounds?

    Yeah, it must be a coincidence that the CIA station in Mexico City observed Oswald entering the Cuban embassy multiple times three months prior to Kennedy's assassination.

    Dishonest post. He said nothing in his post in defense of communism and even suggested a tactic for speeding up its fall.
