  • asombra: It was probably pointless to call for an investigation of the trip. It was a done deal from the start.

  • asombra: In willful blindness, the operative word is willful, not blindness. In bad faith, the operative word is bad, not faith.

  • asombra: The woman herself, who may not have anyone in the US to support her, is doing what she thinks will sell to a tourist audience,...

  • asombra: No sweat, Humberto. I’m sure your interviewer, who looks like a plastic game-show host gone “serious,”...

  • asombra: “Celebrities of science”? Celebrities? WTF is that? Sheesh.

“U.S. Backed” Dictators!!

When in early 1959 Castroites (many of them probably in Miami today) broke into Cubans' homes and chased them through the streets to grab them and send them to Che Guevara's tender mercies at La Cabana--the U.S. embassy (the gov., remember, who "backed" Batista) closed it's embassy doors to these desperate Cubans. Hundreds were thus tortured and murdered.

(On the other hand many anti-Batista terrorists were given un-official refuge in the homes of U.S. officials, especially State Dept. and CIA official's homes.)

Recently Manuel Zelaya's wife, (though under no danger of physical harm) was given "refuge" in the home of the U.S ambassador to Honduras, Hugo Llorens.

    This is making me sick.

    C'mon guys - it's his wife. This isn't a Commie thing, a Cuban thing, a Chavez thing...sorry but I'm Catholic. If it was the prick himself maybe I'd pause, but a wife? Sorry but the 13 years of Catholic school indoctrination won't allow me to deny shelter. If it was Che - I'd give shelter...kill his ass and go to confession...but I wouldn't deny shelter.

    It makes me sick too Honey, even though I am Simpatica, I am not Simpatica about this!
