Hypocrisy? (or Schizophrenia?) (or Castromania?)
Last year France and the U.S. helped Libyan rebels overthrow Libya's sovereign government and the world--including most enlightened opinion--cheered!
Now France helps Mali's army crush rebels trying to overthrow Mali's sovereign government and again the world--including most enlightened opinion--cheers!
But in 1957-58 Cuba's army tried crushing rebels trying to overthrow Cuba's sovereign government the entire world --especially all enlightened opinion--had a massive tantrum (pataleta). This umbrage and outrage prompted the U.S. to embargo weapons to Cuba's sovereign government--including many that had already paid for.
A couple years later Cuban rebels tried overthrowing Cuba's unelected government and again the world--especially enlightened opinion--had a giant tantrum (pataleta). This umbrage and outrage prompted the U.S. to pledge --not only to disarm these rebels--but to prevent any other sovereign nation from arming them.
Absolutely Un-'Freakin Real....
Looks like the Brazilians and Portuguese titled the book perfectly. It ain't just Hollywood.....
