Cuba conducts war games with U.S. invasion in mind

HAVANA (Reuters) – Cuba began its biggest military maneuvers in five years on Thursday, saying they were needed to prepare for a possible invasion by the United States.

In regards to the headline, “Cuba conducts war games with U.S. invasion in mind” , I thought I’d point out that the way you folks worded that little gem would have had Chicken Little running around without a head, screaming…”The Cubans are coming! The Cubans are coming!”

Like they’d been waitng all these years to get even for the Bay of Pigs or something….


Several readers were somewhat amused by this headline, which was ambiguous to say the least: GBU Editor
