Cops shouldn't shoot innocent humans. Agree or disagree?
(Reuters) - U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon praised U.S. President Barack Obama on Saturday for what he called courage and vision in renewing ties with Cuba and said he had asked Washington to pursue such a course.
Cuban President Raul Castro also demonstrated leadership in reciprocating the opening, Ban said.
Obama announced on Wednesday that the United States would renew diplomatic relations it severed 50 years ago, and expand commercial ties with the communist-ruled island. The move has been criticized by a string of Republican lawmakers but welcomed abroad, including by the European Union.
"I highly commend President Obama's very courageous visionary decision to address this issue. At the same time I really appreciate President Raul Castro. He has shown great humanity and leadership this time," Ban told Reuters.
Ban visited Cuba earlier this year and said he had been trying to advocate for an opening with Cuba to authorities in Washington over the issue.
"I am very glad that they have finally decided to agree," said Ban.

Would you invest in America when it's leader would say things like "You're workin' hard to put food on your family" and "OBGYn's are practicing their...... love".
That's why soon after Bush was elected I pulled my money out of the market and put it in gold. Then back into the market when Obama was elected.

Actually, it's not 'abuse' it's quite the opposite. Medical research has shown that masturbation is beneficial for your prostate health. So if possible, try to include it in your daily health rituals like brushing, flossing and exercising.
He's right, it takes Saudi Arabia to flood the market in oil to lower gas prices.
You're one of thes "Hitler's still alive in Brazil" dudes, aren't you. Well, at least you gave that one up seeing that hitler would be 125 y.o. today. Ok, maybe they kept his head alive in an aquarium and they're waiting for the right time to spring him on the world.
