    Fidel Castro undoubtedly is a surviving poster child of a leader of a foreign country that stood up against the graft, corruption and utter greed by American politicians, covert agency's, organized crime organizations and the US military complex of defense contractors.

    Although virtually anyone with integrity and compassion for his fellow man and woman would have done the same if they were in a similar situation, Fidel Castro now presents a in your face America image of the very worst in America.

    In this post Bush Family values era, I certainly hope the corruption and aggression which typify's America's ultra right's actions on many nations in South America and in the Middle East is winding down.

    To me, Fidel Castro is reminding America in the post Bush Family values, Yes you can do these horrific things like rain nuclear weapons on the many Iranian military complexes built deep within Iranian mountains, however the question is Should You and does that make it Right to do so?

    Fidel Castro is reminding America that staving North Korea to the point of millions of North Koreans having virtually nothing to lose if they engage in a extremely violent active war with South Korea. And like a caged animal with nothing at all left to lose they turn on it's tormentors to the delight of the ultra right conservatives as the bear and the dogs tear one another apart, does that make it Right to do that America?

    There seems to be a open moral and ethical question to America from Fidel Castro being Yes you can but does that make it Right?

    Why does that scare the hell out of the ultra right conservatives in Israel, and in America's Republican lawmakers?

    Questioning the moral and ethical principles with which America proceeds NOW and in the Future should be a foundation from which all decisions proceed from and it shouldn't be anything to fear.

    Today, former horrific Republican vice president Dick Cheney admitted he recently had 'heart surgery'. Apparently it was unsuccessful or he would be on his knees begging the American and International Community for forgiveness over his extremely grievous and callously illegal actions, programs and goals. Apparently, that alleged corrupt war criminal is intended to feel more pain and suffering before he finally leaves the earth.
