Hear Hear! Bravo for your commentary on Rudy. Alas and Alack our president has abiding trust in Mr. Giuliani who is willing to do whatever is necessary...apparently even going to prison. Rudy and Mr. Trump know that even if BOTH of them end up going to the penitentiary it'll only B for a couple of months - tops. How do they know that? Simple. Just study the histories of Richard Nixon's & his Associates.
Following the machinations of the Trump administration and the GOP is like watching a circus - clowns all with the ringmaster having them jumping through flaming hoops.
Guantanamo is not a threat to Cuba, as poor as the Cuban military is, they could overrun it before the first American plane or ship got off the ground. A few years back I was teaching in Havana, and went to check it out from the outside - it is indefensible. Cuba is not making any money from the rent because they aren´t cashing the checks. They made a serious mistake in the early Castro days, when the lease was up for renewal. while they were negotiating, someone cashed one of these checks after the lease ran out, so the U.S. assumes that acceptance of payment is evidence of an agreement to an unsigned or unrenegotiated contract. The fact is, if the U.S. belonged to the world court, Cuba could sue to nullify the entire arrangement because the first contract was signed under duress, e.g. invalid.

As I undestood it, the US created the "World Court" (ie the ICJ?) and has total control over the laws it attempts to enforce.
You know the story of the "World Court" telling the US to desist from terrorism?
Can you guess the result?
The entire Democratic side just sat there sulking for the entire speech.
And Rush Limbaugh does NOT deserve a bloody medal!
