OT - WTO and Castro-OT

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Just read the thread about the Panama Canal by Adm Moorer. Thought it interesting that he brought up terrorist possibilities by Chinese and Castro backed troops. First thing I heard on this morning's news was the fact that apparently Castro himself is planning to head up the Cuban delegation to the WTO conference in Seattle at the end of the month. The University of Washington is selling tickets to a speech he is to give - with the warning that his speeches often last up to 4 hours. One more security headache...I always thought that he was persona non grata in this country but I guess "Someone" has guaranteed him a visa as head delegate.

I've been watching the councel meetings here in Seattle, and no money is being provided for security AND there are thousands of people coming to protest different people and things and they are demanding that they be provided with a place to stay. I think I'll head for the hills during the WTO conference! If Castro does come I'll bet there will be an atempt on his life. This is going to be a mess.....
