Robert Parry/Consortium News: Reagan Was "Atrocious!"

My bucket-list is excremental. I want to take a copious, runny shit on Reagan's grave and in George W. Bush's mouth. I shall die a fulfilled and happy man if I should manage EITHER:
When you’re listening to the many tributes to President Ronald Reagan, often for his talent making Americans feel better about themselves, you might want to spend a minute thinking about the many atrocities in Latin America and elsewhere that Reagan aided, covered up or shrugged off in his inimitable "aw shucks" manner.

"...even as the United States celebrates Reagan’s centennial birthday and lavishes praise on his supposed accomplishments, very little time has been spent reflecting on the unnecessary bloodbaths that Reagan enabled in many parts of the world.

Those grisly deaths and ugly tortures get whisked away as if they were just small necessities in Reagan’s larger success “winning the Cold War” – even though the competition between the United States and the Soviet Union was already winding down before Reagan arrived on the national scene. [See’s “Reagan’s ‘Tear Down This Wall’ Myth.”]

Yet, Reagan’s Cold War obsessions helped unleash right-wing “death squads” and murderous militaries on the common people in many parts of the Third World, but nowhere worse than in Latin America.
The blood of several hundred THOUSAND Central Americans--in Nicaragua, Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras--drips from Reagan's dead fingers and taints us all with murderous guilt.
