I am not at liberty to discuss the Second Bay of Pigs, but we all know about the First, when Cuban Rebels were defeated by the Troops of Fidel Castro, back in 1961. That mess made newly inaugurated President John F Kennedy look weak and ineffective.
Now we have Candidate Gingrich bringing to mind a Third Bay of Pigs. The headline I saw was "Newt Gingrich: I will overthrow Castro Regime". It may not have been that former Speaker Gingrich meant that he would actually invade, but I think it has been taken that way in some quarters.
It isn't like the other candidates are much better in the area of foreign policy. And, Rep Ron Paul, with his plan to go isolationist isn't any better.
