DOESN'T HE KNOW THE BRIGHTS HAVE GIVEN UP ON LIBERALIZATION?:

Bush to call for support to aid Cuba after Castro (Ben Feller, October 24, 2007, Associated Press)

President Bush, seizing on Fidel Castro's fading health as a chance for rare change, will ask other nations today to help Cuba become a free society one day by committing money and political capital to the cause. [...]

Bush will propose at least three initiatives: the creation of an international "freedom fund" to help Cuba's potential rebuilding of its country one day; a US licensing of private groups to provide Internet access to Cuban students; and an invitation to Cuban youth to join a scholarship program.

The latter two offerings help the Bush administration underscore the kind of real-life limitations that Cubans now face - from blocked Internet access to restricted information about their leaders to denial of legal protections. The international fund is to speed up societal transformation.


The fruit doesn't hang any lower.

Those so-called "brights" favor Communism for the same reason they favor every form of Boxerism--their hatred of God, their neighbors, and ultimately, themselves. They are what we get for disregarding Exodus 22:18.
