    I can think of one that was probably worse a few hundred miles further. Haiti.
    Been there for a day trip and it was an eye opener....the taxi driver we hired for the day stopped me from
    throwing away our leftovers from a packed lunch, so he could eat the scraps. We tipped him well....

    While there we went to visit the Baptist mission, where a friend had visited before bringing new shoes that did not sell
    where she worked. She was told to burn them at a dump, but she burned only the boxes, taking the shoes to the mission.

    How can we be so rich and so educated and yet be so stupid? We destroy things that the poor need, just to keep prices up.

    One step closer to official normalized ties! Senator Udall did say earlier this week that there will be official normalized ties in a couple weeks, and it seems that may very well be true. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    meh, it's a list that lives and breathes political considerations (rather than factual considerations) more than anything else.

    Bush removed North Korea from the list in order to strike some sort of deal with them... so color me unimpressed

    pointing out flaws with USFP won't buy you the label on its own... but if one insists on crapping all over the US at every opportunity while defending oppressive regimes like the Castro regime...well, they certainly won't be confused with being "pro-USA"

    I don't have much against the Cuban people... it's the Castro regime I have problems with.
    (then again, I have a problem with any oppressive regime...being a communist oppressive regime is just icing.)
    it's an oppressive Communist country that I have direct combat experiences with and have suffered a great personal loss to.. so, well, let's just say I won't be kneeling and fellating that regime like my fellow leftist "great Americans" around here do.

    supporting terrorist groups is all it's supposed to take to qualify for the list...(not sponsoring terrorist attacks)

    but like i said, that list is a political tool, nothing more, nothing less.

    Then the US should be on its own list.

    but like i said, that list is a political tool, nothing more, nothing less.

    It appears like not only do you hate blacks, you also hate Hispanics. Who else do you hate?

    Have to see where you really stand here. Would you put the US on a Terrorist list?

    That's just incredible!! Hate to hear those kinds of stories.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
