Your opinion doesn't change reality. In many ways Iraq suffered under
Saddam's rule but not everything he did was evil and despicable. He did a
lot to improve Iraq's education system and the nations health services. In
those respects Iraq was one of the more progressive middle eastern
I have no idea what you're talking about or who the Garafolo's are.
Despite the advice, suggestions, and impassioned pleas of numerous world
leaders ol' Dumbya decided to go it alone. What's happening now in Iraq is
what the world at large (Dumbya and Blair excluded) has predicted would
happen. And with a 60% Shiite majority in Iraq it follows that they'll
likely determine the political outcome of the country in the years to come.
That is, if in their new "democracy" they're actually allowed to vote.
Cuba would be a lot more wonderful if it wasn't under the stranglehold of US
economic sanctions. The US must be the only country in the world that thinks
this tiny island nation is a threat to national security. Give me a break.
Funny though, that you should bring up Cuba, as a number of my friends have
vacationed there. Wonderful people, good food and reasonable prices make for
a great time. In fact, I'm planning to vacation there myself next year.
Shall I bring you back a box of Cohiba's?
Well then if you believe that then you're just a run of the mill socialist
(or as I think Horowitz says, a "neo-communist"). If you really believe the
US creates more of a stranglehold on Cuba than Castro does then there's not
much I can say. At least I know where you are coming from now.
Hehe, ever wonder why those prices are so reasonable? Do you really want to
vacation amongst political prisoners? Actually if I smoked I'm sure that
would make a very nice (illegal???) gift. Thanks for the offer!
It's well known Cuba has some political prisoners. It's also well known that
the US has some political prisoners too, some of which are also being
detained, surprisingly enough, in Cuba. What a coincidence! Must the
climate. If I was a political prisoner I'd sure like to be somewhere warm,
The US may be one up on Cuba though. I could be wrong, but I don't think
Cuba incarcerates 13 year olds for several years at a time without charges,
access to family or legal counsel.
You're just being silly now. Say in Cuba what you have been saying here in
these threads and you will find yourself in a world of hurt. Are you
actually putting civil rights in Cuba up against ours?
Volunteers do not get to volunteer as to what assignments they take or refuse
once the basic volunteering is over.
You are pitiful. Now we've gone to war in Iraq to free the Iraqi women, to give
them the same rights as my daughters have?
You have the reasoning power of a rabid squirrel, but you're not as cute.

Given the fact that the very same people decrying how Vietnam turned out
were the ones who gave us the rules of engagement and lack of will that
resulted in the defeat in Vietnam seems to be a somewhat self-fulfilling
