I am interested in learning about politically corrupt banana republic regimes and the disdain they have for their own people which is why I opted to study in Hialeah.

I'm a Canadian who has travelled to,(and around) Cuba, many times. It is by far, the safest, most interesting island, in the Caribbean. The people are extremely hospitable and gracious. The average grade level (for the whole island), is grade 9, much higher than even the US. They have free education to university graduation, and free medical services (to Cuban Citizens'). The US Embargo,(including the Helms-Burton Act and the Torracelli Act), have held the citizenery back, for the last 50-plus years. It was designed by our grandfathers' to crush the Castro Regime, but all it did was hurt the Cuban people. It is a monument to the stupidity, of the US Government, to let this vindictive process go on for so long, towards a peaceful little island, of only 11.4-million inhabitants. Shame!

Great post as usual, I agree but sadly the USA is a cowardly nation which only abuses small countries which have no real recourse, You would never see the USA stand up to China or even Russia.

Even Iran now terrifies us, We only deal with weaker countries but even than when they fight back like in Vietnam and Afghanistan we regret getting involved.

I travelled extensively in Nazi Germany. It was a National Socialist Paradise. The people were the best anywhere as long as you did not interfere with their persecution of the Jews. The people all had at least a batchelors degree and many had advanced degrees unlike the morons here in Canada. The key to visiting Nazi Germany is to ignore evil and pretend that murderers and theives are actually good people. It's sort of like.... Cuba.....where you must pretend that the piece of walking excrement named fidel is actually human.

"El chancho"(so called by his fellows due to his odor similar to boiled kidneys, due to his poor hygiene and lack of bathing or showering) che guevara was the communist pig that gave the firing squad to many innocent Cubans and took great delight in doing so. He was a racist and particularly enjoyed humiliating the Cuban negroes & mulatoes as well as the native Amerindian Mexicans whom he despised and made no effort to conceal while he was in Mexico.
Since he was a commander just like fidel, and was bolder than fidel, he enjoyed great power. fidel did not like the competition so he send him off on mission to Bolivia, where he was killed as fidel expected. This gave the revolution a martyr, while removing the competition, as well as producing an icon for the revolution.
It is said by those that found che, that he said: "Don't shoot, don't shoot I'm che & I'm worth more alive than dead, don't shoot" The soldiers that found him laughed & told him to say his last prayers, he cursed God, begged, cried, made offers to his captors, whined, wet his pants, soiled his pants, sobbed, BANG! Justice was done!
He who had killed so many, and took so much delight in doing it, died like the coward he was!
Good riddance, the stinking "chancho" is dead!
**********What few people know is that while he claimed the title Doctor while he lived in Cuba, he never graduated from Medical School. The reason his fellow revolutionaries called him "che" was originally to denigrate him, because they refused to call him doctor or commandante, since those close to him looked down on him. The nickname stuck, and since in the Cuban jargon the word is unknown, it readily identified him. The people of Argentina use this word very liberally just as the Americans use the word "dude" or "man" or "guy". The myth is that he was a guerrilla expert, facts are that he never, not once, carried out a successful guerrilla activity.]********

I won't go as far as to say that you are wrong = but - I guess history is in the eye of the beholder, and since no-one except the CIA agents were in attendance at Guevera's execution, it only follows, that the American Public would be fed the CIA's view of Guevera's deeds. Unfortunately (for Amereicans') the rest of the world knows what a great defender of the truth, Guevera actually was. Like school, it all depends on the teachers' involved. You are free to believe what you were taught, and, likewise, so is the rest of the world.

Anyone who defends (ANYTHING) the bablublog posts, is connected to the USA, CIA-Related, nefarious, devisions. It is a direct outlet for their subversive tactics and surely, by now, everyone who reads their posts, knows this fact.

Yes, Armando ran as did the other two Miami Cubans who post here Liger and FOOO (both use roughly 10,000 different sns).

I do not dislike them but feel apathy for them.

I pray to God that he show mercy on their souls because to be the root cause of a revolution than flee is the sign of a disgusting inveterbrate.

“The real cowards were the people who ran from the good fight with Fidel Castro. The real Cuban patriots...either died fighting Castro or still are in Cuba fighting for freedom,” and he said,“The motto during our American Revolution was,‘Give me liberty or give me death.’ To too many Cubans,” he added,“the motto was ‘Give me liberty or give me Miami.’”

Since he fled Cuba, Armando has visited the island many times using fake names and different passports and for devious reasons.

"SEX TOURISM AND CHILD PROSTITUTION IN CUBA"

http://network.nshp.org/profiles/blogs/youth-...

FOOO does the same but in his case he goes to Liberty in Miami while Liger prefers the Asian tranny hooker area off the exit ramp by the NJ turnpike.
