Cuban scientist barred from receiving U.S. prize : Double standard at it's purest form
They says its because it would be detrimental to U.S interests, Verez's at fault because he's a Cuban. This is only one of perhaps thousands of people who have received the same treatments from the U.S.
Please bare in mind that this is the same country that claims to fight for democracy in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine. In truth they couldn't even come out with an effective solution on how to deal with New Orlean's messes. New Orleans is considered insignificant compared to Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, in terms of problem scale. The rate of joblessness, crimes and homelessness. These are things you ought to look at when claiming that yer holding the sword of Democracy. Another option is to practice whatever that you favour & however you do it, without changing from a smiling mask to the evil ones. Only then will people stop caring so much coz' people are already made known about the stinking jerk you are.
