It is indeed a very interesting article, but I can't say I feel positively about 
a person who writes such things as:

"If it were up to me, the smartest way to neutralize the 
Ortega-Chavez-Morales-Castro grouping—I'm not going to call it an axis—would be 
to start picking them off."

And I nearly threw up when I read:

"But the decider made a decision when he came into office to fight for freedom 
and democracy in Cuba."

Not to mention such delusional thoughts as:

"Our November 2006 elections were important, however. Before those elections, 
you already had a kind of latent bipartisan majority that supported change. Now 
we have a congressional leadership which by and large does as well."

I must have missed the action from that "congressional leadership" that supports 
change (on Cuba).

Making the world a better place one message at a time.
