Posted on 06/11/2006 5:58:43 AM PDT by edpc
President Fidel Castro called the U.S. airstrike that killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi a "barbarity," saying he should have been put on trial.
The United States acted as "judge and jury" against the leader of the al-Qaida in Iraq, Castro said late Friday.
"They bragged, they were practically drunk with happiness."
"The accused cannot just be eliminated," he told a literacy conference. "This barbarity cannot be done."
The U.S. military has said al-Zarqawi initially survived the dropping of two 500-pound bombs on his hide-out Wednesday, but died a short time later.
Castro said if Cuba used the same logic, it could bomb the United States to kill its No. 1 enemy, Luis Posada Carriles, who is being held in El Paso, Texas on immigration charges.
The communist government accuses the Cuban-born Posada of masterminding numerous violent attacks against the island, including the bombing of a Cuban airliner that killed 73 people in 1976. Posada denies involvement in the bombing of the plane.
Try it. We want you to.
What a joke. I am certain all in Cuban prisons have had a fair trial.
Sorry about not issuing a barf alert. some of you are no doubt enjoying breakfast/brunch.
prisons = prisoners
Yeh, Fidel. If JFK had JDAMs you might be singing a different tune -- assuming you'd still be capable of singing, that is.
"Castro" in the article title is generally a de facto barf alert.
Oh the Z man will get a trial and there is a huge crowd waiting to testify.
Maximum Leader for Life is always quick with the funny quip.
As he continue to order the murdering of men, women, and children who try and flee Cuba.
Sorry Fidel... you have no credibility when it comes to talking about barbarous acts.
When a peace-loving old grandfatherly figure like Castro accuses us, it hurts!
in a very hiiiigh pitched voice.....
What a creep.
Fidel Castro drinks toilet water.
Dogs drink toilet water. They're better than Fidel.
Castro...you want a piece of the U.S.? Are you feeling lucky?
That's right, Fidel we did. It was entirely legal to do so, too.
The Z-Man was an enemy combatant, not sanctioned as a combatant by any recognized country, and a fugitive who had escaped capture many times, so under the Geneva Convention it was legal to kill him out of hand.
Now, Fidel, let's talk about all those people that YOU have locked up in Cuba without a trial. Let's talk about all the mercenary killings YOU have ordered around the world!
Funny thing about the difference between Castro and Bin Laden, et al.
Castro atleast stands behind a microphone and publicly denounces America.
UBL and his followers record a tape in a cave, shuttle it via a pack-mule, conduct 17 (or 18) secret swaps, leave it in a locker for an Al-Jazeera employee to "find" it and have it broadcast.
Still, having a couple of those bombs find their way to Castro's villa would be pretty neat. ;)
A few weeks after the 9/11 attacks we attended a cookout at a professor's house. They basically said we were to blame for these attacks, and many were sympathetic to the Islam nation, blaming Christianity for the attacks.
I did what I could to restrain myself. We finally just left in disgust.
We've never been back.
Cuban-born singer GLORIA ESTEFAN has her own theory behind her country's leader FIDEL CASTRO's decision to burn his underwear - he suffers from incontinence! The TURN THE BEAT AROUND hitmaker's late father JOSE FAJARDO was a prisoner of Castro's government following the ill-fated Bay Of Pigs invasion in 1961, which prompted her family to leave Cuba for Miami, Florida, when the singer was just 16 months old. During a recent promotional talk for her forthcoming New York concert, Estefan was asked what she thought of recent news that the 78-year-old incinerates his briefs over fears the garments will be poisoned by anti-communist Cubans. Estefan tells the New York Daily News, "My theory is that's not the real reason he burns his underwear. "I have a feeling maybe he's kind of (incontinent) lately and maybe he doesn't want anyone seeing the evidence
