Cara SeriousBS: Elian2 (115* d) RE: SeriousBS: Elian2 24 Apr 00

I'd like to add my voice to those that support the actions of the INS and the Justice Dept. They did what they were forced to do by those wacko Miami relatives, and any blame for the trauma that little boy has suffered belongs solely to them. The U.S. policy toward Cuba is hypocritical, even though it seems to be motivated by sincere emotions on the part of Cuban exiles here in the U.S. We're so concerned about human rights abuses in Cuba, yet we are going to normalize trade relations with China. Puh-leeze.

The Picture horrified me as well; it literally took my breath away when I saw it on Saturday. But how many of those protestors threatened bloodshed if Elian was taken? What were they supposed to do, try to negotiate further with those crazed, intransigent scofflaws that make up the Miami Gonzalez contingency? They used that boy as a symbol, and manipulated and used him every second he was with them. Getting him out of there as soon as possible was the best thing for his mental health.

I would like to see Juan Miguel decide to stay here and bring up his sons, but is it any wonder he doesn't want to after all this? And especially now; he's staying in an area where 6 kids--KIDS--were shot at the zoo. Cardenas probably seems more desirable than ever to him now.
