Spreading Freedoms

_________________________________________

It's worked well so far In Iraq.

So now we turn our lustful eyes to someone a bit closer.

Whatever It Is, I'm Against It has the goods on something called The Compact with the People of Cuba.

I've not heard, until now, about this particular expansion of our breathing room.

I'm really going to have to get a score card to keep up.

I still, even though it's happening every day in front of me, have trouble digesting that our country is now not even trying to hide our plans for world freedom through slavery. And I consider myself in possession of (many) the facts as far as they are known at this time.

I've seen through the haze and I still have trouble comprehending all of this.

How difficult will it be to convince the Yellow-Ribbon-Fox-News-Bush-and-Jesus-in-'08-crowd, that the detention facilities and "deportations" are not in our best interests?

(sigh)

Rhetorical question, I know.

Robert: Sometimes it seems to me that Cuba has rarely, if *ever*, enjoyed a significant respite from the nearly incessant US meddling in its affairs that began shortly after its populist revolution against the US puppet dictator Fulgencio Batiste. Fidel Castro was initially welcomed with open arms by the people of New York as a genuine folk hero, but it's been primarily "downhill" ever since, as the Capitalist elite of this country sought to crush any semblance of a successful Socialist government. God forbid an *alternative* to oppressive, "free market" Capitalism should ever succeed! People might actually take a LIKING to the idea: CUBA, 1959 to 1980s -- The unforgivable revolution [Chapter 30 of "Killing Hope", by William Blum]. Of course now, after at least a brief "stab" at normalization of relations with Cuba during the Clinton years, we seem to have come back full circle to the "bad old days", with fanatical, corrupt, right-wing politicians, virtually unrestrained government "spooks", anti-Castro Cuban terrorists and Organized Crime all once again playing a dominant role in America. (But then, that's the Republican Party for ya!) The rabid "anti-communists" (= Fascists) are back!

They better lay off our allies in Cuba or they will find themselves without electricity and oil from Canada.

Sorry...wishful thinking. Now we have "Steve" to kiss Bush's ass. How pathetic we are now.
