Update: More Troops to Afghanistan?
Thomas Friedman has an op-edin today's New York Times that voices concern over the effect of sending in more troops. He makes a case that what might be politically expedient in this country could be the wrong solution in that one.
Remember the great opportunities waiting out there for American businesses if only the embargo were lifted? Take a gander at Cuba's outstanding debt, that is the amount the bankrupt nation owes the rest of the world here.
Venezuela $11.367 billion
Spain $3.200 billion
China $3.170 billion
Japan $2.775 billion
That's just the top 4 on the list provided by the Cuba Transition Project. What was that about extending credit to the regime?
