    And when Bushie comes around on one of his visits, isn’t everyone rounded up to attend? No one trains them to say: “Bush, amigo, Miami esta contigo!”  It’ all spontaneous, right? LOL! grin

    I’ve seen the looks on the islanders’ faces when you tell them about the things that are chanted in the Miami demonstrations. They can get pretty shocked and upset. So who are you trying to fool? Yourself? You are just as much a “tonto util” as those who are stuck on the island. Both sides end up looking pretty sad in this 45-year farce. . .

    cajio, I am not a Castro apologist or leftist commie.

    But I call everyone on their BS including the BS coming from my own country! If anything, I will hold the U.S. to a higher standard, something that many hardliners barely seem to understand. Funny how these folks boast about how they “assimilate” so well while their politics still operate at the third-world level.

    As for dissing my ex: geez, don’t you have anything better else to do with your free time than keep tabs on my personal life? I wouldn’t talk if I were you, I bet you’re not exactly bilingual yourself. grin

    And I noticed how you evaded addressing my comments and just went straight to the personal attacks. So again I’ll ask. . . who’ really the “tonto util” here?  What are you getting in return for your vote? wink

    Interesting and valid question made by Robledo.

    Lets look at the facts,shall we?

    Posada has been detained by the US,what next?

    Options will prove to be a political headache for the US government,especially the Republicans.

    A. They arrest him and imprison him in a US jail,but they cannot do so as he has committed no crimes against the US besides entering the country illegaly which is a means of deportation.

    B. Give him asylum,but that would mean looking like the biggest hypocrit against terrorism there is on the world stage while spending billions fighting against terrorism,Bush cannot afford to let that happen.

    C. Hand him over to Cuba or Venezuela where he will surely end up 6 feet under,but then Cubans in the US would riot for having him turned over.

    D. Send him off to another country,but they risk having him found and ultimately face the music.

    Either way you slice it the exiles will hate the outcome,asylum will not and cannot be granted to a known terrorist, the US would have way to much to lose over one mans fate,he isnt worth that much to US interest, which will outrage the exile community.

    The fact is that there is no abosulte thing they can do to save face while looking at the exile community,US will lose this one and the exile community will be outraged one way or another and in return will finally see how the US has done nothing but USE the Cuban community like puppets to THEIR political advantage all these years!

    Worse part is that it is way to late to have the same CIA Posada worked for come up with some lame bogus plan of killing him while blaming it on someone else,no one will buy it!

    Answer: Democrat wins Florida by a landslide in 2008!

    Possibly a trade in the making? Posada for the militant black woman living in Cuba? lol

    They’re up shits creek with no paddle!

    Cant wait to see the outcome! grin~

    Granma newspaper has reported that “D.Robledo” was busted, not for excessive drinking which is the only logical reason for his frequent comments in the Havana Journal, but for failure to maintain the same logic for two consecutive days. His team will now be managed by the amazingly brilliant, “Young Cuban” of Miami, who by the way, will be the first “American” to be the “Comandante” of Cuba. Granma also reported that “Dave” is now under the control of the New York Transit Authority for being lost on the subway for over ten years. He survived by stealing elementary school kids lunches.
    Este artculo es de Posada, verdad?..  Posada es un asesino que “Baby Bush”.. TU President debera entregar al gobierno Cubano, no en una bandeja de plata, sino de mierda. Si ustedes se reunen con “cubanos” que piensan diferente, lo siento por ustedes. Yo me reuno con cubanos que son verdaderos hijo de la patria, no “cubanos” que piensan que algn da van a regresar a mi isla a recuperear lo “perdido”. Los cubanos se merecen todo.. .y mucho ms.
    .D.Robledo estas en lo correcto no soy “bilingual” pero estoy seguro que puedo hablar muchos ms idiomas que t.

    Your ignorance about Cuban affairs is incredible.

    HINT*. En Havana Journal hay un tal “JohnJames” si quieren aprender de los asuntos de Cuba y mucho ms,.. comuniquencen con Èl y aprendern mucho .

    lol, cajio you need to chill out dude!  grin

    Go to babalublog.com, I think you’ll fit in better with the pinheads that post there. You see the world in black and white, kinda like Bush. I truly WISH it was that way, but unfortunately the real world is more complex than that.

    You think I’m ignorant about Cuban affairs. All I can is: just study your home country’ long and sad history with regards to its relationship with the USA. HINT: this shit started WAY before Castro was a young punk learning his political chops in the leftist cauldron that was Havana U. in the 40s! Come back to me later when you’ve actually learned something. Don’t worry, I’m much more forgiving than Fidel! wink

    Below is my political position in a nutshell. Unfortunately, since you seem to be a hardliner, I don’t think you’ll be able to understand a well thought out position. So far, you’ve only shown that you like to write insults.

    Castro will die and so will socialism in Cuba eventually but right NOW it would be nice if the PEOPLE could suffer just a little less by making the embargo more humane and logical. I can live with not removing it altogether partly because it will enrich the regime more than the people, and partly because of personal, selfish reasons: I don’t want to see Havana overrun by hordes of stupid Yuma tourists. One Cancun is enough for me thank you. grin

    In any case, it is the plight of the Cuban people on the island, and the tricky position they find themselves in, that I sympathize with, not yours. I don’t think I’m asking for much. If that makes me an evil commie or leftist “tonto til” in your mind, then I really can’t help you. . .
