    Are Fidel and Raoul nice guys? Absolutely not. But to put them on the same level as Assad and Gadaffi is a bit disingenuous, to say the least.

    "WHAT", no need to show how emotional you get...... Its not disingenuous at all. But it is BO peep playing hypocrite. Assad and Gadhafi were engaged in Mass extermination Campaigns????? Now that is some funny ****. Did you forget the Castros have been into mass extermination and have been doing it longer than both Assad and Gadhafi. Was there some reason you forgot to add that in when doing all that Naught and Naught you are into.

    Do you have some validation of these Mass extermination campaigns they were running. Where is this Proof. Oh and again how was Gadhafi destabilizing a whole region? Same with Assad.....since they were the stability until some Rebel/Terrorists came along in both cases.

    Do you know anything about Foreign affairs.....or do you just try and make **** up on the fly-by?

    There is a U.S. Communist publication online called "People's World". They completely agree with you and are praising Obama for his latest move.

    It was unspoiled in 1955. In the meantime, communism has done this to Cuba.

    They should come to San Diego, where the locals have banned winter altogether. I think it may have been a municipal referendum or something,.

    Moreover how does BO's rhetoric stand up with his own words over Assad and Gadhafi. Castros are no different. How can BO accept one and not the other, huh?
    How did that rhetoric work out in Syria and Lebanon?

    That is another good point. Seems it hasn't taken hold with Syria.

    Now there is no need to bring up BO and giving rockets and missiles to Hezbollah. At least Lebanon will hold a Democratic Election, huh?

    and perhaps Cuba will, too, eventually. It would be a first for that nation.

    They want to be left alone to make lots and lots of money to pay for their ancestors in heaven and have all the other decisions made for them.

    You know, in some ways that doesn't sound like a bad idea! They sure put on an outstanding Olympic celebration when it was their turn, didn't they? I'll never forget that one for sheer grandeur! And building the Three Gorges Dam was an engineering marvel - they are not a backward people. My mother and sister visited China in the late 90s, and they were very impressed by the courtesy they were shown on their entire trip - even visiting the Great Wall on camel-back! I was sorry I couldn't go with them; too busy at work at that time, but I have the pictures they took. Wow!
