Thursday Afternoon Cigar

Rocky Patel Sun Grown.

We're reading Richard Reeves' 2010 book, Daring Young Men.

The single most fascinating aspect of this story is that the US stood by freedom-loving people against enormous odds.  It didn't cut and run like it has in so many instances to include: Vietnam, Hungary, Rwanda, Iran (2009), Venezuela (2014), and Ukraine (2014).

Another tidbit to ponder:  In the 62 days between the Soviets "liberating" Berlin and when the Allies arrived, over one million rapes occurred in that city of women.
