Some things never change...

Yeah I know that’s a bit un-dialectical but it's true. I found this quote today by a USA senator in 1894

"I firmly believe that when any territory outside the present territorial limits of the United States becomes necessary for our defence or essential for our commercial development, we ought to lose no time in acquiring it." Orville Platt of Connecticut


Kind of sums up US foreign policy for the past 100+ years doesn’t it?

Indeed Big_D.

Hope you have fun down in Swansea today, and don't forget to let any comrades you see know that *we're* the daddy.

Where was he talking about though... Cuba perhaps?

I found this blog at Leftwing Criminologist. I'm a member of the Int'l Marxist Tendency.

He was speaking about Cuba.
