Ahhhhhh yes, those tyrannical dusky maidens - Ooooer 8O

Absolutely agree , Cuba Libre and Fine cigars must be defined as evil.

Cuba is a sideshow at best , and Fidel is not going to live forever.

What planet is this evil cow on?

'We must rebuild our friendships with our traditional allies'

No sh*t Condispellingmistake. you think?

Anyone else see that poll?

"The time for diplomacy is now," she said.
Really? What happened to good old a*se kicking George? And what happened to China on this list of baddies then?

Been to Cuba, most people seemed happy enough if poor but that's mainly because of US sanctions?

How do you get onto this list anyway? By illegally invading other countries and abusing the population? That's us in the cack then :twisted:

Castro can end US sanctions at any time, by stopping being a Communist tw@thead, having some real elections, and by stopping the "disappearance" of dissidents, which still goes on. But he won't do that, since ironically it's the sanctions which keep him in power, by giving him a convenient scapegoat.

Democracy = 1 man 1 vote? Castro is the man and his vote is final!

They are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Zimbabwe, Burma and Belarus.
Cuba, Damn fine cigars and nice laydees. No chance
Iran, Middle East Tinder box waiting for the match. No chance
North Korea, Nuclear Weopans, Borders China. If China supports invasion as Ms Rice did not say they were on the Bad guy list. Possible
Zimbabwe. Old fart will die first.
Burma, Possible.
Belarus to close to russia, No chance

Pack your Jungle kit lads and reform the chindits. :)

Damn, I must get some glasses !

I saw the words 'Rice,' 'outpost' and 'tyranny' and misread it into something to do with getting posted out to one of Flashy's favourite Thai ladyboy camps.

Maybe I should just have a serious look as to how my brain works......

stoatman,

that is undoubtedly the single most brilliant summary of all dictatorships, despots, communist enforcment and general nastiness that i have ever read.

Go to the top of the class :D

In fact it fits so well that we could swap numerous names for castro and it would still work

Kim Il Yong (N korea)
Saddam (Ex Iraq)
Gaddafi (Libya)
Arafat (may the worms eat him)
Mugabe (Zimbabwe)

See it works

Does Burma have any natural resources though?

And did Tony get Zimbabwe on the list? Mugabe's really been asking for it for a while. I for one would be fairly happy for the brown envelope for that trip.

Burma (Myanmar) is one of the world's oldest oil exporting countries, hence the oil brand BURMAH.

Production is down to under 10,000 barrels per day but there are 33 companies currently exploring new natural gas and to some extent oil reserves with the largets interest being China.

What a surprise! fossil fuels at the bottom of it again.

If this is true, why don't the Yanks just lift the sanctions and bring on the revolution?

The cycle of long-term sanctions is a hard one to break from the outside.
If the sanctions were just to be dropped, it would give Fidel a huge propaganda coup, because he would then say that he had won against the mighty US. The revolution would, indeed, not be televised.... [obscure musical reference]
Sanctions can to be lifted only after a change on the inside, and until that happens, nothing can really be done. So the ball is in Castro's court.

I don't believe that Castro would still be in power today if the Kennedy admin had not imposed sanctions originally, but we can't really change that....

Senator Boxer Shows Conde Rice To Be A Liar
Sam Hamod

Jan. 18, 2005



This morning, at 9.40 a.m., Senator Barbara Boxer listed fact after fact, in statements by Conde Rice, that showed she contradicted herself time and again about Al Qaeda, about Saddam and his alleged WMD’s, and his intentions--all of which led us to war against Iraq. Boxer went on to show that Conde Rice, even more recently, was caught lying the more by contradicting statements by the CIA’s intelligence reports and contradicting statements by President Bush. In all instances, Boxer showed quotes from Rice to make her points.

In her response to Boxer, Rice sputtered and lied even more. She refused to respond to the facts that Boxer pointed out, instead she kept saying that her integrity and credibility were under question and that she resented this; this was clearly folly and a liar's farce. Clearly, Ms. Rice was shown to be a liar and an immoral person—not caring about those who have been killed in this Iraq war, this war that was clearly built on lies. The more she talked about her reputation for honesty in the face of her lies, the stranger she sounded--as if she, like Bush, was out of touch with reality.

Among the contradictions that Senator Boxer pointed out were: 1. Rice said that Al Qaeda areas had shrunk; Boxer pointed out that Al Qaeda now had more lands in which it was operating than before the war on Iraq; 2. Rice said that the war was not about WMD’s or atomic weapons; Boxer pointed out that the congress supported the war on Iraq based on fear of WMD’s and atomic weapons that the administration claimed existed; 3. Rice said that Saddam had worked with Al Qaeda; Boxer pointed out that Saddam and Bin Laden were enemies and did not cooperate; 4. Rice said we’d made progress in the Arab and Muslims worlds; Boxer pointed out that there was more anger against America in Muslim and Arab lands since the invasion of Iraq, not less—this according to the CIA’s own intelligence bureau and the president’s own committee on combating terrorism; 5. Rice said that Al Qaeda was now more under control; Boxer pointed out that every governmental agency that has looked at the situation has made clear that Al Qaeda has appealed to more jihadist Muslims than anyone had ever imagined. Thus, Bin Laden’s hope had come true, America's attack on Iraq proved to most Arabs and Muslimst that America was attacking and desiring to take-over Arab and Muslim lands. Boxer made other points, but these are among the most important that showed Rice to either be a liar or an incompetent.

During this time, Rice would quote Bush when she felt it was helpful, but even then Boxer pointed out when she contradicted the president when it suited her self-defense (especially with reference to Saddam and his alleged “nuclear weapons”, his infamous aluminum tubes and his “nuclear facilities.”)

Rice kept saying that she did not want her credibility impugned—Senator Boxer then stated, “I am but quoting your own contradictions.” For any sane person listening to the comments, it was clear that Conde Rice has no credibility, no integrity and is not fit to hold an office as important as Secretary of State.

We applaud Senator Boxer for her courage, her honesty and her care for the safety of the American people. We also applaud her for trying to restore some integrity to our Congress and to our senate. Those who simply caressed Rice this morning, were doing a disservice to our country. Clearly, Rice cannot stay with the truth. She is a person who is more loyal to GW Bush rather than to our safety. She is clearly not fit to hold this very important office. If she is put into this office, with her out of sync cold-war mentality, his misunderstanding of the Arab and Muslim worlds, her inability to understand Putin of Russia or why many European, Asian, African and Latin American countries distrust and fear us—America will be more danger than anyone can possibly imagine. I say this because she will exacerbate matters between America and the rest of the world, not help. Our isolation internationally is becoming worse everyday. To put in one of the architects of this isolation and loss of respect for America into a major office at this point would lead to more disasters down the road.

I know that the Republicans probably have enough votes to put Rice into the position of Secretary of State. But it is my hope that some of them will have enough sense to stand against her, with some of the Democrats who may have the courage to finally stand up with Senator Boxer. Senator Boxer would make a much better Secretary of State than Conde Rice—the shame in America is that political cronies and political bedfellows like Rice get these important jobs, rather than people who are truly qualified to lead our nation.

We say, bravo and thank you to Senator Boxer. To Conde Rice, we say, for shame.
