Accidental Wisdom

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

I am stuck watching the 3 parts of The Godfather (yeah stuck...don't ask). Since I have seen it about 100 times before, I started focusing on very tiny details of the movie, the same way you really savor the last bite of a Kitkat or a Hershys bar. Also, I hope that one day I'll be on "Who wants to be a millionaire", and the million dollars question would be "What was the color of Vito Carleone's socks when he shot Fanucci, midway through the second part"...Only then, I'll have a shot at the million dollars.
Anyways, during Micheal Carleone's visit to Cuba he had this very interesting conversation with Hyman Roth

MICHAEL
I saw an interesting thing today. A man was being arrested by the Military Police; probably an urban guerrilla. Rather than be taken alive, he exploded a grenade hidden in his jacket, taking the command vehicle with him.

It occurred to me: the police are paid to fight, and the Rebels are not

ROTH
So?
MICHAEL
They can win

Why did that sound so familiar? Hmm, I wonder! Probably just the heat!

Oh my God! He is relating a quote about the Cuban revolution. A commie is in the house [hysterical shrieking sounds]

Moved on!

I fear that you'll get people equating so-called "suicide bombers" with the evil cubans.

Bas good point.

Actually, communism has got a lot of great ideas at least on paper, applying it however is always a guaranteed failure. Still, this shouldn't make you feel uncomfortable with what you quote, nor think that Imagine and it's unequivocal sympathy for communism isn't a great song, also keep in mind that the people who are most sympathetic to arab causes in the west are leftists and liberals not neocon nut jobs.
