The book fair tries very hard to produce a large number of informative displays from various countries regions and commercial enterprises,,It has changed its format and now you can spend a good half day there obtaining information . It is relatively easy to get to from the metro also .

Josea Cat,

We all should know by now that you and the gang are very retarted when it comes to understanding such matters: Here's a brief summation of how a small developing nation either "get's it" or "doesn't Get it" and the tragic consequences that ensue if their leadership "doesn't Get It"


A small developing nation in Central America faces a severe economic crisis and is offered a chance out of its predicament BUT the political leadership of the nation MUST accept the geo-political demands of the USA.

Versus:

A small developing nation's political leader decides to battle the USA and declare membership in an Anti-Imperialist coalition with the now defunct USSR and Cuba.


The first case happened during the Monge government in Costa Rica and the second occured under Manley's government in Jamaica.


Guess which small developing nation has made the most positive progress since.



CompaNeros: Hasta LA Victoria Siempre!!!!

“A small developing nation's political leader decides to battle the USA and declare membership in an Anti-Imperialist coalition with the now defunct USSR and Cuba.”

Before there was USSR or a Socialist Cuba there was an Anti-Imperialist Movement; the American Revolutionaries Against the British, Bolivar against the Spanish and of course José Marti’s famous line: "I lived Inside the Monster; I know its entrails" in reference to the USA’s designs on Cuba.

Just to name a few of the Anti-Imperialist Movements prior to the Bolshevik Era!


I am surprised such a “learned” REVISIONIST Liar like you would not know those Historical Facts!
