Fidel Castro: Zarqawi Killing a 'Barbarity'
Newsmax.com ^ | June 10, 2006 | Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff

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.

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.

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.

I had to sit at a party two weeks ago and listen to a small cadre of mush-brained ex-hippie leftwingnuts on the other side of the room extol the virtues of Cuba. It was all I could do to restrain myself, but I managed to do so, out of respect to the hostess. Idjits!

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. ;)

Isn't that just stunning?

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.

Castro's new movie.. THE INCONTINENT TRUTH

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

Our failure to assassinate Castro during the Kennedy administration is one of the enduring failures of American foreign policy.

It is a mistake that still could be corrected if they passed out a pair of cojones inside the beltway.

Did Castro offer to lend a "show trial" judge?

In 1959 Castro obtained a death sentence against a 15 year old American boy whose only crime was that his American grandfather owned property in Cuba where he planned to retire.

Well Fidel, you missed me. May you rot in hell.

If I was with you you could count on me to cover your back. And with those hippies it wouldn't take much.

In the least, you should have laughed in their faces and just say they are showing exactly what they are all about in supporting a murderous totalitarian bastard.

And then you could tell them, since you know what they are all about, you would do whatever it takes to stop them from ever succeeding here.

And I would be with you then too.

I like the original explanation better.

It makes Castro sound more like the paranoid fruit cake that he is.

"The accused cannot just be eliminated," he told a literacy conference. "This barbarity cannot be done."

This statement would have much more credibility if he had responded similarly to the 9/11 attacks. Instead, he defended them as the justifiable acts of an oppressed and misunderstood people, thereby casting his lot in with the wanton murderers of 3,500 innocent office workers.

Not exactly a moral authority on matters of barbarity.

To be exact ... it would be judge, jury and executioner. Remember that Fidel!

Well, apparently, yes they can. Remember that Fidel!

While unfortunately it might be due to old age, Fidel will soon be assuming room temperature and I would venture to say may be getting the same eternal justice that Zarqawi is experiencing.

I guess to Castro the bombing of Zark the shark was a barbarity, whereas the beheadings, the IEDs, and all those car bombs were just fun and games.

Ten reasons why Zarqawi cannot watch the World Cup

Those are my ten reasons why Zarqawi can't watch the world cup, hope you'll all be able to watch it!
hareega

1- Al Qaeda doesn't have a soccer team.
2- Watching TV is a sin, watching uncovered legs of men is a bigger sin.
3- He's afraid to lose concentrations when he sees the hot Brazilian chicks cheering for their team.
4- He doesn't have ART.
5- He might get really confused who to cheer for if the US played England in the quarter-finals.
6- He wouldn't tell if the fans painting their faces with colors are some of his men in camouflage.
7- He hates wathcing infidel teams winning antyhing.
8- He's angry the FIFA refused to use the heads of his victims as balls in the tournament.
9- He's afraid of division among his men on who is the sexiest player in the Italian team.
10- Good reason: he's D-E-A-D.
