5/14-GET USED TO IT, DICTATORS OF THE WORLD. FREEDOM IS CONTAGIOUS AND BROAD-JUMPS OVER BORDER LINES.
There's something beyond praiseworthy about people rushing to help less fortunate people fight for freedom. There were young people from seventeen nations along the Hungarian border with Austria helping refugees escape Communism. The Irish are particularly praiseworthy in that respect. Many went to Israel to fight for that nation's independence in 1948. The nationa hero of Chile is Bernardo O'Higgins. MATT LAWRENCE, one of the authors of BETRAYAL: Clinton, Castro & The Cuban Five, (non-fiction tells of his flying unarmed civilian airplanes over the Florida Straits to help rescue refugees fleeing Cuba in un-seaworthy craft. He tells Sara and Barry how Castro's Soviet-supplied MIGs shot four of his Cuban mates flying for BROTHERS TO THE RESCUE out of the air. You will hear the jubilant Cubans bragging about their marksmanship, as though they'd won some great military victory.
