Louis: Your citation of Castro's support for the Soviet invasion of
Czechoslovakia is extremely one-sided. What Castro said in this very
important speech was that the *system* that both Czechoslovakia and the
USSR was built on had fundamental flaws, that if both were genuine
socialist states, intervention would not be necessary. I will get Castro's
speech from an archive on the Internet and let people judge for
themselves.

As far as democracy is concerned, I have no idea what you mean by that
word. Is Jamaica democratic? The Dominican Republic? They have a free
press and elections, don't they? Are they more "democratic" than Cuba?
