    Bachmann Warns of Hezbollah 'Missile Sites' in Cuba

    Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said Monday that it would be "foolish" to normalize trade with Cuba because Hezbollah could soon have "missile sites" there.

    "Why would you normalize trade with a country that sponsors terror?" the candidate asked a crowd of supporters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. "There is reports that have come out that Cuba has been working with another terrorist organization called Hezbollah. And Hezbollah is looking at wanting to be part of missile sites in Iran and, of course, when you are 90 miles offshore from Florida, you don't want to entertain the prospect of hosting bases or sites where Hezbollah could have training camps or perhaps have missile sites or weapons sites in Cuba. "

    Bachmann was most likely basing her fear on an unsubstantiated report from the Italian publican Corriere della Sera, which was picked up by numerous conservative websites earlier this month (see here, here, here and here.)

    Even if that report were true, it makes absolutely no mention of "missile sites."

    Bachmann then pivoted to explain that Republicans didn't need to worry about picking the most electable nominee because the country had already decided not to re-elect President Barack Obama.

    "I'm just here to tell you, Barack Obama will be a one-term president," she said. "The country has already made up it's decision. I am convinced of it. The issue is who will be our nominee? Will it be someone who understands these issues so they will go and fight for them or will we have a compromise candidate?"

    "Because we have candidates that have said that when it comes to Obamacare that their plan is to issue an executive order or to issue a waiver. I'm here to tell you, I get this bill. I fought it. I am the chief author against it. I was called Barack Obama's chief critic. That's my badge of honor, to be his chief critic. Because I understand what some of the other candidates do not... We can't settle, and 2012 is it. We will have socialized medicine for ever and ever and ever in this country unless we get it out in 2012."

    So, does this mean she wouldn't normalize trade with the US government?

    she has absolutely no credibility on cuba what so ever. The state department is wrong about cube being a state sponsor of terror. The women is clueless on foreign policy.

    How would Hezbollah's missiles get from Cuba to Tel Aviv? The don't have anything like that sort of range.
    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes

    If we don't invade another country here soon, how are we going to continue the war on terror?

    You guys are too isolationist.

    Let's see. So we normal relations with Pakistan and they support the Taliban off and on. And as someone pointed out the U.S. supports terrorism. There's been no evidence of Cuba supporting Islamic terrorists. But this is more of the right wing-nut "the communists are secretly supporting the Islamists...even though the U.S. used the Islamists to topple the communists" crap we've been hearing for years. And if Cuba wanted missiles why wouldn't they get them from North Korea instead of getting the Hezbollah bottle rockets? But that would actually be logical.

    This is why we need to disband the Standing Army. The temptation to use such power destroys liberty and it gives politicians such grandeous power to act like a King. Next we need to de-militarize the domestic occupation vis a vis LEO's. This is just insane.
