    What is it with these SA politicians whose first reaction to anything is to stick their index finger straight up in the air?

    Kickitoff and TMBOA are always at it but you expect that from ignorant bastards such as them: oh, that description also fits “No Money Pepe”.

    I bet Obuma really wondered WTF he had got sitting opposite to him lecturing him in gibberish (rural Uruguayan Espanol), I almost felt sorry for him, almost.

    The best way to get rid of the Castros is for the US to lift the trade embargo, and with no conditions. The simple fact that the Cubans would start to have access to the outer world, would speed up Castro's demise, and a chance for Cuba to extricate itself from the shit.

    Yes, I agree. The 54-year-old US trade embargo hasn't exactly beeny successful, has it? Fidel Castro has used it to keep himself in power as well as paint a positive portrait of himself with Communists and fellow-travellers everywhere.

    A reminder to Mr. Mujica:
    The Castro tyranny needs to lift the embargo on freedom.
