Where to begin? First of all, can anyone imagine a Bush-Cheney-Lieberman response to the Cuban Missile Crisis that would not have produced some kind of inferno? But never mind that. Lieberman disingenuously ignores Kennedy's far more important strategy of engagement with Khruschev. As for Castro himself, evidence has been surfacing in recent years of a Kennedy plan for a two-track policy toward Cuba, the second track being a "carrot"of engagement. Kennedy would have arrived at that place through a series of hard lessons, especially the Bay of Pigs.Ok, so the cited paragraph comes from a folly about Comrade Party Leader Lieberman who is still living happily on some happier planet not bogged down by mere factualism....

Yes, I know that many of us are not Happy that the cold war crapped out on us. Some of us accepted the fact that we were going to have to get real jobs and become productive members of the actual economy... And some folks, well, yes, there is that Faux News Reality where we are suppose to keep the twin themes consistently in place, namely that the Free Marketeers won the cold war, totally without any impact from any of the evil liberals in the actual american military, and the Glorious Military Dominance CRUSHED the soviet union, which is of course the follow on to when Herr Komrade Party Leader Nixon personally lead the Grand Panzer Armee, and the Lead Tanks into Peking And CRUSHED the Red Chinese forcing them to make their underlings in vietnam admit that we were the Real Winners.
But of course the evil liberal media keeps covering all of that up because they hate freedom and are unamerican and let themselves get bogged down in mere factualism.
Thank God we have RoboBushCheney
They not bogged down in mere Factualism!!!
Yeah, that's the ticket...
