  • The list of U.S. government crimes (let alone private sector ones) is endless. So what are a few more to them, huh? Without any effective leverage for the cuban government, some of these guys are not likely to ever see Cuba alive again, are they? Something to hold over the imperialists when we finally catch them and put *them* on trial, at any rate.
