: Castro? 'Killing his host'? Castro may have killed up to 12,000 people in 40 years. His predecessor, a noted US ally named Batista, killed 20,000 in seven years. In that time, the US and its proxy armies have been responsible for the murder of millions of Indonesians, Vietnamese, Guatemalans, Nicaraguans, Salvadorans, and Timorese. By what logic can Castro be called a killer?
Castro killed 12,000 people in 40 years? And you have the brass to ask by what logic a man who kills 12k can be called a killer?
Proxy armies, that's another one of those bogus terms that serves as justification for your charges.
The US has many treaties with many countries. But when atrocities are commited in those countries by that regime, it doesn't redound to the US.
I understand your desire to do what is necessary to undercut my position, but good golly man, try to maintain a shread of sanity.
