Fidel Castro refused to bow and curtsey to the americans, and kicked out the yanks who were draining cuba's resources and monopolising their industry. Therefore Cuba is a terrorist state.
A similiar self-serving logic was applied when branding Iraq a terrorist state.
Therefore in conclusion one must always take pains to kiss George Bush's/current ruling twat's arse.

Yes, of course. US/Cuba relations (which were great before) only became strained in 2001 when GWB took office. :retard:

Interesting to see the list as per relations. Australia as part of the "Iraq Bandwagon" have been paying kickbacks through wheat exports. Did we make the list?

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******Pending membership for the Ash Barty Return Band Wagon*****

Your post still makes no sense. :retard:

Maybe you weren't aware that my first post was sarcasm?

Everyone knows about US/Cuba relations and JFK. So why do you seem to blame it all on GWB?

Does anyone have a link of the story in question here? For us who havn't read it, it may be a transcript from a Michael Moore show for all we know.

I could use a few dead Kennedys in my pocket about now.

Ahhh...politics...
It's not meant to make any sense.
But regardless of any explanation, the bottom line is that the U.S. has always held a 'personal grudge' against Fidel.

sar-casm (n.): A form of wit that is marked by the use of sarcastic language and is intended to make its victim the butt of contempt or ridicule.

He wasn't aware your first post was sarcasm because the wit was missing.
