Gorby in Miami on Cuba

It didn't get the same attention, nor was it anywhere near the level of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at Columbia University last week. Nevertheless, yesterday Mikhail Gorbachev spoke to students and teachers at Ransom Everglades School in Miami.

Here's some of what he had to say:
"The way to go is to try to end the confrontation.'' "Americans should not seek revenge toward Cuba.''
Afterwards, he held a news conference in which he made the following statements regarding Cuba and fidel:
Cuba's healthcare and education systems are great achievements, Gorbachev said in a press conference after his speech to students. Americans should not ''demonize'' Castro, he added. "He is a person and a capable leader.''
One more thing:
"And I think Cubans outside should take the right attitude. They should seek ways of cooperation.''
OK. Have any ideas on how to "cooperate", Mr. Gorbachev? Nyet, didn't think so.
