    US v Cuba The Christmas Decoration War

    In this time of good will to all, I found this annoying.

    When did Christmas become political?

    Does GWB understand irony?

    (As Cuba is the place where the US keeps/abuses its political prisoners so they can be denied the basic human rights they would be entitled to on US soil.)

    I thought they were good articles, and I don't think they were that political. Plus we shouldn't be negative about the president, it's like throwing rocks at our parents. Even if our parents drove christmas campaigns.

    Technically I believe Gitmo is US soil, since AFAIK it's a US base.

    According to the US Supreme court, on 28 July 2004, US law does not apply and can not be used by detainies.

    Interestingly the two Aussies still there HAD to vote in our last election even though they did not know who was running.

    Cuban Parliament Speaker Ricardo Alarcon called the sign “rubbish” on Wednesday, and told reporters that Cason seems “desperate to create problems.”
    i agree, cason does seem 'desperate to create problems' obviosuly no one wants to see these decorations.
