    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm not sure. It's certainly not in our best interests to attempt to isolate and/or blackball a major power. We aren't that friendly with any of the major powers. And we may need their help some day. I just don't know enough about it to feel that confident in my opinion; but I think we should have thought about what to do now before we spoke in the first place.

    day late and a dollar short. Sometimes things are done that cannot be undone.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    The only part of Cuba that the USA will ever control is Guantanamo Bay.

    If Cuba was free, we wouldn't even be interested in Guantanamo.

    Absolutely nothing. Sanctions have very little bite. Let the chips fall where they may. Although we can voice our displeasure with Russia, we should step aside.
