As much as I believe in everyone’s right to speak and protest - it is equally incumbent upon me to question the wisdom of anyone extolling the virtues of Castro, or especially, Kim Jong Il.
The United States may sometimes make boneheaded mistakes in foreign policy. But, c’mon, Kim Jong Il. He makes Castro look reasonable. Huge army, missile technology, nuclear weapons (Or not, according to SK). Yet, NK has a starving population, giant gulags, and human rights abuses that are some of the worst in the world.
With such epic bad judgment and analysis allegedly permeating these particular organizations, especially regarding the whole Cuban and North Korean situations, why should I listen to these people?
Note: you personally may have wonderful reasons for opposing the war, and are probably not a Stalinist. Can we just take that as a given? I’m not trying to associate the anti-war posters on the SDMB with these folks. Unless, of course, you would like to be associated with them. That would probably make a better debate anyway.
