Maybe it's just my mood today or maybe not... but I really dislike the "blame" mentality that seems to plague our country more and more. For a long time, we were blaming the Japanese. Lately, they've been entirely off the radar screen! Did they reform themselves completely and thoroughly? Doubtful. We found a new, better scapegoat is all.
America: the ever gracious winner (imagine if Germany or Japan had won the war!) -- but sore loser when it doesn't get its way!! Punishing Cuba for 50 years, because we can.
