On a serious note, as much weapons and money the Russian government has given to the Cubans over the decades, you think the Cuban government will just say "fug you" we are going to side with the U.S.? Something doesn't sound right here. Somebody please explain.
Cuba's money sources have dried up, and Cuba itself has probably been open to normalizing relations for much longer than the US has been.
Isn't this straw man 101 by tinderbox standards?
If not the context is totally different. Publicly many a politician from both sides may give the oh it's bad speech but behind closed doors I bet they sing a different tune.
In the context of the aim of the cartoon, not the same.
While many politicians from both sides are likely behaving that way re torture it is the Republicans using any excuse they can to bitch about this.
Pretty sure that complaining is all bs partisan politics...
