I was going to do an article about the U.S. embargo of Cuba. Then i thought to myself, this debate is like being stuck in quicksand. The more you struggle to get out, the deeper you sink. I am tired of the back and forth, “we trade with China don’t we”. I swear if i hear that argument again I’m gonna have a exponential meltdown like the Geico Caveman.
It’s like this, if Fidel reimburses those he stole property from, apologizes for convincing the Soviets to place nukes on his island , almost starting a nuclear war, i would be all for lifting the embargo. These “humanitarians” that want us to lift the embargo so they can get them some nice Cuban ass make me sick. I would like to see how they would act if i showed up at their house and business, siezed them, gave them a rubber tube and said “start swimming”. Then later i came to them and said “Hey i’m going thru some hard times, how about helping me out”. I’m sure they would be so forgiving.
My uncle went to school with Fidel in Havana. Fidel had a nickname for him “Flaco” he was skinny. My uncle was not political he was just a family man. but he was not communist either. He graduated and opened his jewelry shop. He worked 12 hrs, a day and built a new house.
After the revolution, people started gathering in front of his store threatening him and telling him his shop will soon be seized. He grabbed all his jewelry, packed his family in the car saying goodbye to those he had to leave behind. On his way to the Airport he sees a convoy under a passing, now he never spoke of this, his wife was the one who told me what happened next. She says that he stopped the car and got out, when Fidel recognized him he opened his arms and said “Flaco”. My aunt says he started screaming at Fidel calling him a “bastard” and “un maricon” at this point Fidels bodyguards were getting ready to shoot him, but for some reason Fidel told them to put their guns down and let him pass. The last thing he told my uncle was “good luck Flaco”.
I read an article today signed by Fidel (I doubt he wrote it) but it was in the official Cuban paper Granma. He said something very telling “Only an alliance of civilizations could oppose the United States’ empire: the Russian civilization whose orbit includes the Community of Independent States (CIS); the Chinese, the Indian, the Islamic and the Latin American civilizations. It is an immense space where we could create more equitable markets, our own stable financial system, our collective security mechanisms and our philosophy, giving priority to the intellectual development of man in the face of western modern civilization, which emphasizes material goods, and measures success by the amounts of mansions, yachts and restaurants people have. Our mission is to reorient the world towards justice and intellectual and spiritual growth” . Sounds like some democrats i know.
After i read that i thought, it sounds like most of the professors teaching in our institutes of higher education. Justice did he say justice. This is the description of Cuba by one of the leading human rights organizations. The government places severe limitations on freedom of speech and press. Reporters Without Borders calls Cuba the world’s second biggest jailer of journalists. The constitution provides for freedom of speech and press insofar as they “conform to the aims of a socialist society.” The government considers the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and foreign mainstream magazines and newspapers to be enemy propaganda. Access to the Internet is strictly controlled and given only to those deemed ideologically trustworthy. Maybe some CNN journalists in Cuba should read this. oh they don’t have to worry because they already“conform to the aims of a socialist society”.
So the master plan is right in front of our faces. Cuba is forming a coalition of the killing, Russia, Latin America, Islam, India, and of course our friends China. I had a feeling that Russia and Iran had agreed to move against us. Iran by killing our soldiers in Iraq and Russia by supplying and enabling Iran. Latin America would be Venezuela and Cuba, India I’m not to sure about them. Islam is already setting up shop in Venezuela and Cuba. And of course the reason we can afford sneakers China.
Raul Castro has for many years sympathized with change in the Chinese or Vietnamese style, that is, “capitalism or something like it in the economy, which is still called socialist, but with a single political party and repression of politics” At present, China is Cuba’s second-largest commercial partner, surpassed only by Venezuela. Havana maintains much of its trade relations with China despite the fact that the Chinese are very strict when it comes with compliance with payment terms. When China says 90 days you better come up with the money in 90 days. thats why Cuba wants us to lift the embargo. they know that they can stiff us and the Democrats will bail them out. Who would you rather owe money to. Barney Frank or Political Commissar Du Tiehuan of Beijing Military Command. Yeah i thought so.
