    Good comment.
    That's right, North Korea or Cuba, our dear neighbor. Go there and see what justice you'll.receive.What a good life you'll have.
    No other country in the World has so tried to mend its wrongs like the United States has.
    But I am sure you will find fairness and well being far from these shores so, bon voyage.

    Truth is a medicine that is difficult to swallow when one's diet has been candy coated lies. We
    must get a 'Holder' ourselves to get well. (Report) Reply

    Hey, this is nice! I may apply this as like the thought of my poem 'No Love No Dream'. Hope any one who read this may open the mind. An eye opener piece! I lie it. This is true not only to the country relation but to a family relation that needs honesty, trust, transparency, bravery and unity for the best. I rate you 10. (Report) Reply

    Such powerful words emerging from within, the prospect of the nation claimed as cowards would tremble if only there was a consolidating theme that would create a riot.

    Another One” is unafraid to tell the Truth,
    “This One” is dissecting the false myth,

    I love this line it's the phrase that phased me the most. (Report) Reply
