    Geeze, the ignorance of people. Do you think the entire world uses toilet paper?

    Let them emulate the holy Prophet Muhammad, the uswa hasana, the perfect model and excellent example for emulation by using their left hands like virtually all pious Muslims the world over do.

    While it's of course possible to have a basic level of sanitation without things like toilet paper, I think it's fairly safe to say that the level of sanitation/health care in a country where they can't afford to buy/make enough toilet paper is going to suffer.

    Yes there is a solution; get rid of the corrupt Communist leadership that has run this country into the ground with their asinine policies.

    Why don't we worry about our own corrupt leadership and asinine policies?

    Not that you're actually serious, but I thought I'd correct this ignorance before it goes any further. I don't think that Muslims are any more likely to use their hands to wipe than other individuals. It's primarily based on poverty. Look at India or China for examples.

    We're trying to deal with them, but you keep coming to their defense.

    Not sure if you were just dying to pop off at someone or what, but you sure do make a lot of assumptions based on one short sentence, aside from apparently misreading it in the first place.

    But I'm glad you got it off your chest, whatever it is.

    Re: Cash-strapped Cuba says toilet paper running short

    With urban farms sprinkled throughout the island, Cuba is proving to be one of the world's most successful models of how to integrate agriculture into urban areas.

    "Now, in the wake of three hurricanes that wiped out 30 percent of Cuba's farm crops, the communist country is again turning to its urban gardens to keep its people properly fed."

    "Around 15 percent of the world's food is grown in urban areas, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a figure experts expect to increase as food prices rise, urban populations grow and environmental concerns mount."

    "Since they sell directly to their communities, city farms don't depend on transportation and are relatively immune to the volatility of fuel prices, advantages that are only now gaining traction as "eat local" movements in rich countries."

    "In Cuba, urban gardens have bloomed in vacant lots, alongside parking lots, in the suburbs and even on city rooftops."

    "They have proven extremely popular, occupying 35,000 hectares (86,000 acres) of land across the Caribbean island. Even before the hurricanes, they produced half of the leaf vegetables eaten in Cuba, which imports about 60 percent of its food."

    Yet they cannot wipe their asses...

    Craziness.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
