59. The CNN article you link to omits the US's requirement for US gov "assessment teams" for aid.
Edited on Wed Sep-17-08 08:08 PM by Mika
Yeah. Right. Like the US would allow enemy foreign government "assessment teams" into the US to evaluate US infrastructure.

The US has invaded Cuba, sponsored attacks and assassination attempts against Cuba's government leadership, harbors terrorists that have attacked Cuba, and is a self declared enemy of Cuba. The Cuba haters are trippin' if they think that Cuba is being unreasonable.
