Celebrating a Massacre
Left I on the News has an insightful post about a celebration taking place remembering the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion. It's usually remembered as a fiasco for the U.S., but it should also be remembered for its illegality and the needless sacrifices that were made. It is being remembered, but for all the wrong reasons. An oil painting will be shown depicting an aerial attack that took out around 900 Cuban soldiers. This was one of the "successes" of the Bay of Pigs, so it's being remembered in this way. "Yeah, we failed our mission, but at least we took out 900 atheist commies." Truly revolting, if you ask me.
