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?:tape: :shrug:

Your post still makes no sense. :retard:

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

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

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.:confused:

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. :rolleyes:
Yet another example of the U.S. having its head up its ... [use imagination here]. ;)

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.

I have no knowledge that they still do it, but years ago, Cuba, as a Soviet satellite state, sponsored several leftish terrorists groups in Latin America.

Many of the groups operating in countries such as Argentina, like the ERP (People's revolutionnary army) or Montoneros were supported by Cuba and their member were trained in Cuba (just like Al Qaeda and Afghanistan).

Cuba would send military advisors to support several leftish rebel groups, in Angola for example.

when the US invaded Grenada in the 80s, they didn't fight local troops, but Cuban troops (that was the reason they invaded it).

In Argentina, there were Cuban terrorists supporting the local terrorist groups (and I know that first hand), I believe they also supported the Tupamaros in Uruguay.

I believe that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cuba abandoned those activities, but I don't know for sure.

it's true that Fidel Castro didn't bow to the Americans, but he did bow to the Russians, so what's the difference?

the only reason why they stopped supporting terrorism is because they couldn't longer afford it, and they were doing that on behalf of the Soviet Union which didn't longer exist.

yup, Kennedy is dead,

However, it was during Kennedy's president that the most dangerous crisis that the world has seen occurred.

And that was because the independent Fidel Castro, who is adored by all the romantic leftish did bow to the Soviets and allowed them to deply nuclear missiles on its territory, surely, becoming the primary target in case of war did a lot to help the Cuban people :rolleyes:

Of course Kennedy HAD to react the way he did. The world was hours from a nuclear conflict. The US navy had direct orders to sink any Soviet ship that crossed certain line, they were the ships transporting the missiles.
