76. Grandparents?
I imagine that this was long time ago. During the revolution maybe? If it was recent when there wasn't a war raging in Cuba that's another matter. How many people's grandparents have we killed? Oh, but let's not bring up old shit, right? It's very hypocritical to live in a nation that gets into conflict with others every couple of years and have the nerve to criticize what others do. Killing seems to be OK with you as long as it's us doing it. I may not approve of certain actions that took place during the revolution and even after. But I guess you would agree war is war, right? That's because I don't like killing, period. Even if it is "commies". Remember Vietnam and all the others? I guess not. This is also funny coming from a guy that's always sticking up for Ariel Sharon. Did you know that an Israeli court found him responsible for the Sahbra and Shatila massacres? How long was he locked up for? Puhleez.
