    Who attacked me? I didn't see anyone attack me. Did you see someone attack me? Did you report them? In what posts was I being attacked. I'll not stand for this. It's just not right..... They must be reported and I would fully expect whoever did it to receive an infraction.

    I cannot believe that. Are you telling me that, if you needed treatment for cancer, you would rather go to MD Anderson or Sloan-Kettering than go to Cuba. You must be nuts. I mean the Morse documentary proved Cuba has a far better healthcare system and, if that was not true, they wouldn't have called it a documentary.

    "Attack" in the sense of adopt an adversarial stance and issue posts to that effect, not launch specifically personal attacks.

    What's sad is that your other lines in this thread were actually funnier than this.

    Regardless of speed the fact is Cuban's live longer than the Latin American average, they even live longer than folks in Washington DC, not bad for an apparently evil communist entity.

    We also should not focus too much on healthcare as that is to diminish the other success' of the revolution. The scientific breakthroughs, the education system, the end of illiteracy, the cradle to grave security, the development of the new man, the refinement of Marxist thought, It's battle and subsequent victory against apartheid, the establishment of national sovereignty, it's retention at Playa Giron and the inspiration it provides for all liberation movements worldwide, all of these must be remembered and all men of goodness must never allow others too forget.

    Except that they manipulate statistics, so this point is invalid.

    This is a mix of meatless rhetoric and plain old lies.

    That is quite the accusation and one you cannot prove.

    Where are the lies? You can't just say it's lies and be believed, you need to show why. As for "meatless rhetoric", that is beyond ironical.

    OK, I did a little research and now I know who the ProstateWarrior was. He was the legendary medicine man of the Sioux Nation, Chief Longfinger. He was with Sitting Bull at Little Bighorn.

    They had gone there planning to offer Chief Longfinger's services to Custer and his troops, but Custer, typical of the US military's shoot first, ask questions later tedencies, started firing.

    Chief Longfinger, Chief Sitting Bull, and their traveling party were forced to defend themselves. That's the real story of Custer's Last Stand.

    I have an aunt who sometimes goes there- no, not to the dressed-up touristy areas, but to the real, poverty-stricken island. She actually met a woman whose daughter died from a lack of medical care, but was not included in the statistics because that would make the Castro brothers look bad, and we can't have that now can we.
