castro is the color of the blood you spray on lead:
I swear this just arrived in my inbox from the Heritage Foundation. I'm cordially invited to a special screening of "Shoot Down"! What's that?
On February 24, 1996, Cuban MIGS shot down two unarmed, civilian aircraft of the Brothers-to-the-Rescue organization in international airspace. Cuba's callous disregard for human life resulted in the murder of four individuals and outraged all Americans.
That happened? Huh. What does this tell us about Cuba, anyway?
As Cuba transitions from the control of an ailing Fidel Castro to the leadership of his 76-year-old brother Raul, and as the Cuban military moves center-stage in this process, it is important to recall the nature of the Cuban regime and the dark acts for which its leaders will be held accountable in the court of history.
I was going to do this whole moral-equivalence thing, with the Raul Castro government making a movie called "Guantanamo Bay," but let's let this speak for itself.
