Did Bahrain and United Arab Emirates sign peace deals w/ Israel because of Trump, given his criticism of Obama for being too soft on Iran?
The peace deals that Bahrain and UAE signed with Israel shocked me, because most people were wondering when Saudi Arabia and other countries on the Arabian Peninsula would end their technical state of war with Israel, and Egypt and Jordan were previously the only countries in North Africa and the Middle East to forge peace deals with Israel.3 respuestasPoliticshace 3 meses
Why do ultra-leftists forget that Pol Pot denied his people the right to healthcare and education, even as they praise Fidel Castro?
Although Fidel Castro remains a folk hero to the ultra-left, African leaders and Latin American far-leftists for promoting free-of-charge schools and hospitals for the Cuban people and promoting his island as a role model for other developing countries to follow, the same ultra-leftists who praise Castro overlook the fact that another communist dictator from the developing world, Pol Pot, abolished medical and educational institutions for the Cambodian people because he saw those institutions as relics of French colonialism in Cambodia5 respuestasPoliticshace 3 meses
Did you ask SR-71 and U-2 pilots who flew over Cuba if they found Bernie Sanders' comments about Fidel Castro to be offensive?
Bernie Sanders doubling down on his past praise of Fidel Castro for promoting free-of-charge schools for the Cuban people pissed off all Cuban-Americans and freedom-loving Americans of Anglo heritage, because such talk is the equivalent of the radical left praising Stalin for saving the USSR from the Nazis in World War II, and it was part of reason that he got crushed in this year's Democratic primaries (Sanders is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and even elderly Americans who have depended on Obamacare consider a Medicare-for-all program the equivalent of state-run medical facilities in the former USSR, Cuba, communist Ethiopia, and former communist states in Central/Eastern Europe). Maybe many veteran SR-71 and U-2 pilots who overflew Cuba have panned Bernie for being insensitive to the suffering Fidel Castro inflicted on his people and those in Latin America and Africa who refused to agree with his bankrupt, twisted vision for the developing world, since they know that calling Castro evil is out of respect for not just Cuban-Americans but also US values.1 respuestaPoliticshace 3 meses
Why didn't Adolf Hitler tell Joseph Goebbels to have his first name changed even though Joseph is a Jewish first name?
The Nazi government created a verboten (Forbidden) blacklist of first names that they knew were Jewish, including Rebecca, Joseph, Joshua, Samuel, Abraham, Noah, Sarah, Jacob, Benjamin, and Franklin. However, Joseph Goebbels had a Jewish first name, meaning that Hitler could have the opportunity to ask his propaganda minister to go to an office in Berlin to demand that Goebbels' first name be changed to Heinz.4 respuestasHistoryhace 3 meses
Did you ask SR-71 and U-2 pilots if they knew that Fidel Castro was a monster after hearing about his plans to export communism to LatAm?
During the Cold War, SR-71 Blackbirds overflew Cuba as part of Operation Giant Plate and Operation Giant Clipper to keep a watchful eye on Fidel Castro's attempts to wreak mayhem in Latin America by sparking Marxist uprisings in the region as well as Soviet warships and Warsaw Pact merchant ships sailing to and departing Cuba, because the CIA and Pentagon were determined to prevent Castro from implanting Soviet communism on the rest of Latin America. When news of a batch of MiG-23s being shipped to Cuba reached Washington, foreign policy hawks were concerned that the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces possessing nuclear-armed fighter bombers, so an SR-71 overflew Cuba in the late 1970s to determine if those MiGs were nuclear-armed, and analysis of the MiG-23s at the Cuban airfield photographed by the Blackbird showed that the MiG-23s were of the conventional fighter variant.
Given this info above, it's possible that the airmen who flew SR-71 and U-2 over Cuba during the Cold War knew that Fidel Castro was becoming a monster after hearing about Castro's foes being shot to death by firing squad, but also Che Guevara's plans to impose Fidel Castro's bankrupt communist ideology on the rest of Latin America. They also know that calling Fidel Castro is out of respect for not just Cuban Americans, but also US values.

How would the Cuban public react of Miguel Diaz-Canel bashed the appearance of Che Guevara's face on T-shirts as a cult of personality?
It's common knowledge that some American millennials wear T-shirts with Che Guevara's face with no regard for his heinous deeds. In 2014, a Cuban state-owned company was selling perfumes named Che and Hugo (honoring Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez respectively) but the Cuban government outlawed this action because it felt it inappropriate to advertise the names of revolutionary icons. Therefore, it's possible that in a statement at the 2021 Cuban Communist Party Congress, Miguel Diaz-Canel could invoke Karl Marx's words to denounce the appearance of Che's face on shirts and other consumer goods as tantamount to a cult of personality.
