    didn't some clown-maybe Bobby Knight-say if rape is inevitable you might as well enjoy it?

    Nope, just a belief that the US government exploits Latin America, having nothing to do with Che or youth rebellion. Its merely something I believe to be a fact. My brain doesnt work well with contradictions. Also, I dont like American culture. And Europeans are no good either. The only thing left is Latin America. It makes logical sense.

    No, but they are very interesting. I did donate money to the SOAWatch though and even now I have a refrigerator magnet from them!

    I am not a communist. I merely think the USA is corrupt and filled with homicidal maniacs.

    Its just funny how white Americans always go on about their guns but dont really want anyone else to have them. Like the US govt sent guns to Mexican government to fight the Mayan uprising against NAFTA. Its a peculiar double-standard.

    Robert K Brown-publisher of SOF magazine, labeled CISPES and the CI as KGB fronts

    liberals derided him. The wall came down and former KGB operatives admitted that both groups were KGB fronts

    SOA sounds like useful marxist idiots in all fairness

    I went to shoot in Columbia one time in a world cup event. I had a surplus USMC bag. I get to Cali and all the soldiers at the Airport start straightening up when I walked by and a Captain who spoke really good English welcomed me to Columbia. SO I turn to one of Columbia's top shooters and asked him what was up. He said the soldiers were an elite anti terrorist group who had trained at the SOA and figured I was some Marine officer in civilian attire there to meet with one of the senior officers!

    I can assure you that if you haven't spent significant time in Central America, you don't have a clear understanding of the cultures or the political realities.

    Oh, but you the white conservative gun owner know all. You the white get a gun and you supply guns to rightwing governments that torture and imprison and disapear people in Latin America at whim in order to support your industry there, be it Coke or Chiquita, only you the white american arsehole understand the world. All normal people in these lands are slaves, and that is your great conclusion that nobody else can grasp. Give me a break. I wouldnt bat an eyelash if the entire white race was whiped off the planet, and why? Because of people like you. Corrupted American breed. Die out! Open the borders! Breed these American whites out of existence! I cant stand these people anymore. Something has to give!

    Not as racist as what your good guys in the USA have been doing in Guatemala to prevent a "communism" that was a pure fabrication of your dumb self-important fantasy world, where you think you are the good guys with your guns defending democracy. The USA is not a nation for nice people but a nation for phonies and pseudo-christians. NICE PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS BE TARGETED FOR KILLING BY AMERICA, THE LAND AGAINST PEACE.
