Cuba launches new international campaign against U.S. embargo

Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez made the comments at the launch of an annual campaign for a United Nations resolution condemning the U.S. trade embargo put in place after CU’s one thousand, nine hundred and fifty-nine revolution, but which has softened a little under Obama.

“I will begin by saying what everybody would like to ignore or forget but which must nevertheless be stated, namely, that we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat.” — That was Winston Churchill’s description of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s surrender to Hitler in the MUC Agreement of one thousand, nine hundred and thirty-eight.

Poland abortion: Deputy PM backs away from ban

Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin has said proposals put before parliament for a near-total ban on abortion will not be implemented. A citizens’ bill backed by the Catholic Church aims to ban all abortions unless the mother’s life is at risk. State-run radio quoted Mr Gowin as saying that a nationwide protest on Monday against the proposals had given the government “food for thought”.

“The blockade imposed by the US on CU persists,” Rodriguez told reporters at a news conference. “The blockade is the main cause of the economy’s problems and obstacle to development.” Rodriguez said damages from April two thousand and fifteen through March 201six amounted to $four.six billion and to $one hundred and twenty-five.nine billion since the embargo’s inception.N. 2six, will be the twenty-fiveth time CU has marshaled international support against the embargo. CU usually wins overwhelming support for a resolution which is non-binding.

Yet Churchill’s words also apply to where the US is today. Our men and women in uniform have been heroic.

Prime Minister Beata Szydlo has also distanced the government from the bill. “I want to state very clearly that the PiS (Law and Justice) government is not working on any legislation changing the rules on abortion in PL,” Ms Szydlo told a news conference on Tuesday. The bill came from an anti-abortion citizens’ initiative that gathered some four hundred and fifty, signatures.

Since Presidents Obama and Raul Castro stunned the world in December 201four by announcing they would work to normalize relations, the Cold War foes have opened embassies, restored commercial flights, opened travel options and negotiated agreements on issues affecting the environment, law enforcement, the postal service and communications.

Yet Churchill’s words also apply to where the US is today….

Our tactical units remain the best in the world. Our intelligence officers and diplomats have risked their lives in service to the country. The problem is not with the sincerity, the courage, the energy or the effort of individual Americans.

PL’s socially conservative government has a majority in parliament, but the bill is not sponsored by the government and all s will have a free vote. The deputy prime minister told Radio Koszalin in northern PL that the current abortion exceptions would remain. “I want to reassure those who fear that in PL abortion will be completely prohibited,” he said.


Since Presidents Obama and Raul Castro stunned the world in…

Obama, who visited CU earlier this year, has also gradually poked holes in the embargo through executive orders. Rodriguez said the advances so far were positive but “limited and superficial” in the economic sphere. “President Obama reserves broad executive latitude that he can use up to his last minute in the White House,” he said.

Our tactical units remain the best in the world….

The problem has been the approach of a bipartisan WV political elite that has squandered fifteen years, thousands of lives, many thousands wounded, and trillions of dollars with no coherent strategy, no honest assessment of the challenge, and no willingness to learn from failure and develop new strategies and new institutions.

“A total ban certainly won’t get through. Abortion will certainly not be banned when the woman is the victim of rape or if her life or her health is in danger,” he added. He said Monday’s protest “gave us food for thought and certainly taught us humility”, in an interview hours before the European Parliament was due to discuss the Polish proposals. PL’s foreign minister, Witold Wasczykowski, belittled Monday’s nationwide protest, calling it marginal and making a mockery of important issues.

More than one hundred U.S. business delegations have visited CU since 201four and around three hundred, Americans are expected to arrive this year under looser travel restrictions.S. telecommunications companies have signed roaming agreements, a Carnival cruise ship makes regular stops and a HAV hotel is under U.S.

Since September eleven, two thousand and one, we have moved from righteous anger and clarity of purpose against the forces of terrorism in the immediate aftermath of the attacks to now sending $one,seven hundred,, in cash to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

But faced with such widespread opposition, PL’s governing right-wing Law and Justice party, has softened its stance. It has also dropped a plan to write its own bill that would further restrict the country’s abortion law. It seems likely that the current two3-year-old compromise, which only allows the procedure in cases of rape or incest, or when the health of the mother or foetus is endangered, will remain in place.

But many U.S. companies say the embargo makes business nearly impossible. Obama has insisted he opposes the embargo but can do little more because only the Republican-controlled Congress can lift it. Many experts beg to differ and are urging him to act before leaving office in January.

We have watched our efforts in IQ collapse while our efforts in AF decay. We have seen the Middle East grow more violent, more chaotic, and more ungovernable despite fifteen years of American and allied effort. Fifteen years ago this week, terrorists killed two,nine hundred and seventy-seven Americans in the worst surprise attack on our homeland since Pearl Harbor, seventy years earlier. In fact, five hundred and seventy-four more Americans were killed on nine/eleven than on December seven, oneninefourone.

On Monday, one hundred, women took to the streets of the capital city, IAD, as well as in Gdansk, Lodz, Wroclaw, Krakow and elsewhere in the mostly Catholic nation. Demonstrations were also held in solidarity in other European cities, including BER, BRU, Duesseldorf, BFS, LON and PAR. If the citizens’ bill is passed, abortion would only be possible if the woman’s life were in danger.

“There are approximately twelve regulatory changes that the Obama administration can implement today which would have enormous impact upon opportunities for US companies,” John Kavulich, president of the N.Y.–based U.S.-CU Trade and Economic Council, said.

It was a huge, tragic, and deeply emotional shock. And yet the nine/eleven attack was not the beginning of our war with Islamic supremacism. By two thousand and one, we had been at war with the IRian dictatorship (still to this day listed by the State Department as the leading state sponsor of terrorism) for 3two years, when IRians seized the American embassy in TCI. Mark Bowden described the event appropriately in the title of his book, “Guests of the Ayatollah: The First Battle in America’s War with Militant Islam.” From an American perspective, that war had continued in LB in the onenine80s and in SA, East Africa and YE in the oneninenine0s.

A recent Ipsos opinion poll suggests the vast majority of Poles do not want a more restrictive abortion law, with only eleven% favouring that option. Almost half said that existing legislation should remain unchanged, while more than a third said abortion should be more widely available. Even by conservative estimates there are far more illegal than legal abortions in PL – between ten, and one hundred and fifty,, compared with about one, or two, legal terminations.

In two thousand and one, the terrorist war came to American soil with shocking results. American anger was vivid and deep. President Bush reacted with powerful, clear, morally defining words. In his address to the Joint Session of Congress, just 9 days after the nine/eleven attack, President Bush asserted “on September eleventh, enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country.”


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

President Bush described a huge goal. “Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped, and defeated,” he said. President Bush described the scale of the challenge, saying, “Americans are asking: How will we fight and win this war? We will direct every resource at our command–every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war– to the disruption and to the defeat of the global terror network.” Bush went on to warn that “Americans should not expect 1 battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have seen.Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the US as a hostile regime.”

President Bush wisely warned that “the only way to defeat terrorism as a threat to our way of life is to stop it, eliminate it, and destroy it where it grows.” Four months later, in his two00two State of the Union Address, President Bush described KP, IR and IQ as an “Axis of Evil”. Bush warned that “the US of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.” The Congress applauded.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

And that was the high water mark of the response to nine/eleven. Just this week, KP had its fifth nuclear test. Last week KP launched 3 missiles in direct violation of United Nations Resolutions. We now know that while deceiving the Congress and the American people, the Obama Administration has sent $one,seven hundred,, to what even the State Department says is the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism, the IRian dictatorship.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

IQ, at great cost in American lives, wounds and money, has degenerated into a mess dominated by IR and by IcelandIceland. How did we go from brave words to defeat, dishonesty, and humiliation? Tragically, after heroic leadership in the immediate aftermath of nine/eleven (who can forget President Bush in NY standing next to the fireman and promising that the people who attacked NY would hear from all of us?) and after delivering exactly the right words to Congress, the Bush administration failed to plan for how big, how hard, and how long the fight with Islamic supremacists would be.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

Almost immediately, the lawyers began imposing rules and regulations. It was decided not to declare war even though President Bush had described nine/eleven “as an act of war” in his congressional address. The State Department began pushing back against an honest, clear statement of who was attacking us.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

The Defense Department was very cautious about distorting the military establishment with an aggressive focus on learning how to defeat Islamic supremacists. However, the campaign was understaffed and under resourced. We did not invest the military power to completely destroy the Taliban. President Bush had warned that “you are with us or you are against us,” but the State Department rapidly began to offer an alternative in which you could be a little with us and a little against us.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

PK was with us in providing a logistics system to sustain our forces in AF. However, PK was against us in providing an enormous sanctuary for the Taliban in the northwest region. Instead of thinking through the cost of a campaign to wipe out the Taliban sanctuary, we limped along in exactly the kind of indecisive guerrilla war we had waged in VN. Today the Taliban has regained momentum and, the minute we leave, AF is likely to fall back into Islamist dictatorship.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

Our efforts to create a modern AF were crippled by a State Department bureaucracy that was clearly unwilling to cut through red tape and learn to be effective. This pattern of systemic incompetence would be repeated in IQ because the Bush Administration was simply unwilling to reform the State Department. Failure abroad was more acceptable than a bitter bureaucratic fight in WV.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

Once the IQ campaign began, resources were drained from AF and the military was stretched almost to the breaking point. Jake Tapper’s book “The Outpost” details the tragic costs of an American military which is overextended and tries to accomplish more than it is resourced to achieve.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

The IQ campaign might have been a brilliant success if Ambassador Bremer had not changed the mission in mid-war.  The American military knew it could defeat Saddam Hussein very rapidly but it also knew that it then had to rebuild the IQi system and let IQis run their own country. Bremer seemed to think he was supposed to profoundly change IQ and he set about to do so with little coordination with the American military and little understanding of how deep the internal hatred and potential violence among IQis was.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

Instead of a brief campaign Americans have been sucked into endless conflict. As an example of the dishonesty in the title of this paper, it is simply a lie to say we don’t have boots on the ground in IQ. At last count there were more than four,four00 American troops in IQ, not counting temporary forces rotating in and out. Both the Bush and Obama administrations have failed to define the scale of the threat, the determination of our enemies, and the very real dangers we face.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

Since the bipartisan establishment can’t even define the threat, it certainly can’t define a strategy for success. As our enemies grow stronger and smarter, we slide from defeat to humiliation. As our enemies watch us accept humiliation, they grow bolder and more daring.


Newt Gingrich: 9/11 anniversary — 15 years of strategic defeat, dishonesty and humiliation

There is a remarkable parallelism to IRian ships crowding our navy and RUn planes crowding our air force. None of this is a surprise. We have 8 weeks before an historic election.

  1. Then you’re even more dim than I originally thought. Due to you already being at the far end of the dim meter, you’ve accomplished an amazing feat! Congrats!!!
    I know someone that does exactly the same as you do, makes sense to me.

  2. I don’t respect that at all.
    “Thank you very much.You knowledge on the subject is unparalleled.
    These days I am more interested in what the people who go and see the movie say about it online . The internet has really replaced the need for proffessional critics .

  3. Rejection is great.It makes you more determined for the next onslaught..Always stay the course, cause the tracks only go one way. You eventually will see the light.

  4. Totally agree it takes time to tell a story. That is why the book is often better that the movie. The best movies are always long. Gettysburg, Ben Hur, Ten Commandments, Gone with the Wind and Lonesome Dove. The dumbing down of America never ceases to amaze me. No I am not saying this movie ranks with those but i really liked the movie.
    The problem with saying something is “debunked by ‘leading’ scientists” is that you can turn around and find just as many scientists who take the opposite side in this debate. Like the global warming/climate change issue, this is not settled debate, and there are just as many who have good points on both sides of the issue. I understand that people do not like the opposing sides in these debates, but it is not fair to allow only one side to be heard until scientists can prove CONCLUSIVELY that vaccinations are a good thing without any dangerous side effects, or that climate change is caused to a large degree by man, and has a man-made basis. All points of view should be shared equally so people can make their own minds for themselves.

  5. Saying this over and over again isn’t going to make it true. It’s settled for anyone who has the guts to face it. Grow a nut and face the fact that we have serious work to do.
    I like that.
    Yes, and I hope you sat in front of a mirror when you posted that comment.

  6. Just because you can’t understand science or statistics doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t. Stop lashing out at your betters and instead try to better yourself.

  7. Lee Eric, amusing. Now please support your ridiculous threat with a list of your felonies. And then run along back to your bridge.

  8. Rejection is great.It makes you more determined for the next onslaught..Always stay the course, cause the tracks only go one way. You eventually will see the light.
    Unfortunately it is unscientific to censor ideas and evidence no matter how bad you think they are. It invokes healthy skeptcism that is at the heart of scienftic inquiry. Maybe these guys are on to something, I better watch this film.
    Oh great…the thilla’ from Wasilla. Why should this trashy idea surprise anybody?

  9. James Wolfe, not too bright yourself, are you?
    I’ve written extensively about those topics, as have others, and the many points are not worth repeating for you, as you have seen the comments but have not paid attention.

  10. Thank you for this honest insight.
    You couldn’t be more right.
    THANK YOU. I couldn’t have said it better myself.

  11. Most people could care less. Anyone offended by mere words are weak anyways.
    Awesome movie! I’m goiing to watch it again next week. Critics are idiots.

  12. You cannot find as many scientists who agree. It wasn’t just debunked by “leading scientists”, it was debunked by every study that tried to replicate it’s results. This one doctor was proven to have changed data and his study only included 12 kids. 12, not 12,000. He had to change data and it was only 12 kids. He isn’t a “side”, he’s a con artist.
    Over? C’mon! The market is saturated. Just because the majority of people are happy with what they got, and not just throwing it away, and you think it is OVER? I’m always going to be better than you,so I’m happy

  13. Lol, you are dreaming.
    Risking nothing is not brave, bu risking it all, be it wealth, fame, reputation, that’s bravery.
    failure? are you stupid or just ignorant?

  14. Saying this over and over again isn’t going to make it true. It’s settled for anyone who has the guts to face it. Grow a nut and face the fact that we have serious work to do.
    What a train wreck.
    Would you like to rephrase your question in logical English? I’m not sure what you are asking, but care enough to wonder.

  15. And when Indigenous Peoples tell you you’re interfering in their ability to reclaim important elements of their culture which have been appropriated, misrepresented, and sometimes destroyed by the West, you dig in your heels and try, try again.
    Darrell Brown ,even though I disagree with you, your demeanor towards rudeness is outstanding.
    I think someone is pulling a early April Fools joke. Just not sure on who..
