The blame for the failure of the operation falls directly in the lap of the Central Intelligence Agency and a young president and his advisors.

Like a game of monopoly, there are nations competing to become the foremost leaders of their time. They amass great wealth, powerful armies, and political sway.

No one argues that gambling is a big, profitable business, they only question whether it is a business doing good, or the opposite. Arguments both ways are very compelling and both sides have many examples that demonstrate their point. However, if I were in the position of deciding if gambling should

However, as these two decades went by, the American farmer found it harder and harder to live comfortably.
