: : PS, If Castro had come to Seattle for the WTO, would he have been arrested for ordering the shootdown of those two private cessenas a couple of years ago? Remember?

: He didn't come. Obviously, he isn't that stupid.

: : A couple of Mig's shot down two civilian cessenas. Boy, real Cuban aces!! LOL!

: It's hardly surprising;on May the 6th 1971 the US-supported Cuban exiles used bioweapons in Cuba which resulted in an epidemic of swine fever and the destruction of 500,000 pigs.

: The Cessnas only appeared to be dropping propoganda leaflets, but the Cuban authorities weren't going to take any risks, so they warned them repeatedly to back off and shot them down when they didn't.

: The Cessnas were not only acting in violation of Cuban law, they were acting in direct violation of international law and US law; the Cubans were legally well within their rights to shoot down the intruders; and any US court that tried to arrest Castro for that would have to break US and international law to do so.

You guys are priceless; I figured you'd go into overdrive about the ballsy way that Reagan told the World Court to kiss his ass when he was mining Managua Bay. But instead you squawk about two unarmed cessnas flying in broad day, having already notified Cuban officials of their plans, being legitimatly being shot down by supersonic Migs. M'Gawd.
Anything for the fatherland...
By the way, where ya been?
