Who is this Che guy. He seems to be a hero to many except the Cubans. It seems as Cubans hate all beloved heros. They hate JFk,Mandela,MlK, the Pope for visiting Cuba back in 90's. Princess Dianna for pushing for lifting the embargo. Hell Cubans hate themselves. They hated their own Cubans who fled during the Marial Boatlift. The Cubans in Coral Gables hate the Cubans in Little Havana. Cubans are haters and they get hated right back from the rest of the world. The world demands that the american military left does something about these haters in our midst that has infected their hatered on the rest of the world via this corrupt, dishonest republican adminstration. With honor and commitment the right wing terrorist Miami Cuban will be pulled up from Miami by its roots. The world demands it.

Miami Cubans!!!! I just went to go get a slice of pizza on Washington Ave, and i was "again" disrepected by an illegal alien cuban. And now im watching the tv show cops. Where i saw a poor innocent "real" white precious girl get scared by a man who following her up in Palm Beach. Guess who the man was. Yes, an illegal alien chicano Cuban who probably collects welfare. I swear you people need to learn how to respect the "real" Americans who were here long before you.

Dear Miami Cubans,
This is probably how the revolution started in Cuba. When the working man got sick of all the arrogrance,corruption and the elitism. Yah, im sure some of you Cuban old timer gotta be scratching your head thinking i seen this before in Cuba. You Miami Cubans had it real good down here in Miami. You Chicano's fought Clinton "the government" in the streets over Elian. Every "real" American knows you fight the government in the courts, or the congress. You dont fight the government in the streets, you will lose everytime.

The Revolt of the Generals: Just Short of a Coup Against the Incompetence of the Busheviks?

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

Now, even the generals are revolting.

It is unprecedented for former military brass to rise up and denounce the Secretary of Defense in such scathing terms and call for his resignation.

It is a sign of how deeply flawed and failed the Bush Administration Iraq war policy and anti-terrorism efforts have been that it has come down to this: Americans and their elected officials must choose between the military analysis and advice of the military leadership with wartime experience or the arrogant stubborn failure of two draft evaders, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush. Add to that, Donald Rumsfeld who served in the military but never had combat experience.

In whose hands do you think America is safer in terms of wars: the generals or the bumblers at Bush Inc?

The Republicans stay silent or condemn the generals. Bush, with all the brain wattage of a snail, stands behind a man (Rumsfeld) who surpasses even George's standard of failure, and the Democrats think that they look tough by failing to give groundcover to the nation's former top commanders. (The current top brass must openly support their "Commander-in-Chief," but Congressman John Murtha is tacitly speaking out on their behalf.)

It's not that Rumsfeld's resignation would alone begin to turn this nation back from being run by the crew of the Titanic, but it would restore hope that there is some accountability for the disastrous failure in performance by our one-party Republican government.

Donald Rumsfeld would be the first one to walk the plank, but hopefully just the beginning of the day of reckoning.

The former top brass calling for Rumsfeld to depart join a long list of former Bush Administration officials who have come out to reveal the true Machiavellian, mendacious, and incompetent operation of the White House. This includes Richard Clarke, Paul O'Neill, and Colin Powell's former Chief of Staff.

Then there is the crusty Marine hero, John Murtha, a Democratic Congressman who hasn't backed down from his assessment that the Iraq War is an utter failure.

Unfortunately, the Democratic leadership in the Congress is not backing up these patriots, not even their own John Murtha, even if they give him a whisper of support.

BuzzFlash heard a story (which we will officially call a rumor) that a congressional leader in running the Democratic campaign to retake the House told a Dem running for an open seat not to bring up the resignation of Rumsfeld? "Why?" the Dem aspirant -- who will likely win -- asked. Because, it didn't poll well, he was allegedly told.

Whether the story is true in its specifics, it is true in the approach that the Democratic leadership in Congress is taking toward the mid-term elections. The national Dem Congressional platform appears to be simply this: "Vote for us. We're less corrupt than they are, and we are much more sane."

We'd agree with that statement wholeheartedly, but it's hardly a ringing battle cry when others, like the former generals and your own Congressman Murtha are taking the Iraq issue right to the front line -- at personal risk to their reputations and their good fortune, due to the proven vindictive nature of the White House. (Just ask Joe Wilson.)

Message to the timid Democratic Congressional leadership: Democrats appear weak when they don't stand up for the truth and they leave former generals and burly ex-Marine congressman to speak out for how we can attempt to achieve true national security.

For the Democratic Congressional leadership to let the generals sound the alarm without rallying to their side; for the Democratic Congressional leadership to allow Murtha to steadfastly state the case against Bush without resoundingly backing him up; for the Democratic Congressional leadership to let former Bush Administration officials, without protecting their flanks, argue the case for how Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld lied us into war -- this is not supporting our military and our soldiers.

This is to abandon them.

John, your reference to cubans as chicanos is growing tiresome. Might I suggest you add porteño to your list of malaprops.

john

Rubio, all latin americans speak Spanish, and originate from the same Spanish settlor. This alone is a sufficient justification to refer to Cubans, and other Hispanics as Chicano's. It is not my attempt to use it as a derogatory or demeaning term of art. After all many Chicanos call themselves as Chicano's. Please learn to be less sensitive, as im sure i could reach into my extensive vocabulary to describe Miami Cubans.

Chuck

It is unfortunate that individuals who profess to be intelligent imply in their
posts that all Cubans think and act exactly the same. I am an American, does anyone out there believe that all Americans think and act alike? Enough said. Respect to all.

No my friend, after you burned our flag, and hung it upside in Little Havana, you ceased being an American, and immediately became a Cuban. Nothing more nothing less. So please dont pretend to be something your not. And, for the record yes Cubans do think and act alike. You all are right wingers, who think Bush is the second coming to christ. Even the Americans from the red republicans states dont think as a group like you Cubans down here.

P.S.
For the record i have ask several Cubans on the Beach if they mind if they were referred to as Chicano's and they said no not at all. Fortunately, the Cubans on the beach are a bit more sophisticated, than you Cubans from Little havana, where i suspect many of these posters reside in.

rubio

I'll try to remember that all latin americans speak spanish on my next trip to belize.

Douglas,

If we were concerned about national security, we would make sure all you illegal aliens couldnt sneak into America.

Scott

John, Ignorance is bliss, keep on living in your world, you entertain us with your ignorance. please continue to post your comments, I'm very amused at you display of lack of knowledge and complete and utter ignorance. I AM an AMERICAN and I appreciate our cuban-american citizens!

john

Scott: I appreciate our cuban-american citizens!


Did you appreciate them when they burned our flag in Little Havana, and called Clinton a communist when he returned Elian. Did ya?
