On November 2, the UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly for a resolution calling on the US to lift the trade embargo against Cuba that President John Kennedy imposed in 1962. The US and Israel were the only two nations to vote no, with Ukraine abstaining. Total dependence creates total compliance.
The word ineffective that I used is about the gentlest that can be used in describing how problematic the U.S. democracy is. Others use far stronger terms in reference to the American supposedly liberal democracy such as ‘broken’, ‘cracking’ or ‘failed’. Anyone may confirm it reviewing publications and opinions expressed by people, American citizens inclusive. Perhaps, to make what I have just written more tangible let me refer you to an October 2022 Quinnipiac University poll. In line with its findings 69% of Democrats and 69% of Republicans thought the nation’s democracy was on the brink of collapse. And the figure for independents was 66%.
Cuba support Group Ireland stands united in condemnation of the terrorist bombing of the Cuban Embassy in Washington DC on the 24th of September 2023. Two Molotov cocktails were thrown at the building, which was occupied by the ambassador and his diplomatic staff. The attack happened just hours after the Cuban president left the United States where he had addressed the UN General Assembly on behalf of the G77 +China nations, representing almost 80% of humanity.
Like all UN member states, the United States is obliged by the Geneva Conventions to protect the embassies of foreign governments and any terrorist attack is prima facia evidence of a dereliction of this treaty duty. In reality, the United States has permitted, even promoted, acts of terrorism against Cuban diplomats and against the civilian population of Cuba for decades, yet has the gall to place Cuba on the List of Terrorist States, when clearly Cuba is the recipient, not the perpetrator, of terrorism.
Let us remain steadfast in our support for Cuba and its people.
” Joe Biden should remove Cuba from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism without further delay, a decision taken by his predecessor Donald Trump”
While reactionary legislators in the US want to enshrine Cuba’s membership on the politicized “State Sponsors of Terrorism” list into law, people in the US have a different view of Cuba. Cuba has slowly become more and more favorable in the eyes of the US population, with favorability climbing from 10% in 1997 to 42% in 2023. Youth especially are more likely to oppose US sanctions against Cuba. Many of the young leaders traveling to Cuba express the desire to fight the blockade against Cuba once they return home.
Watching over information security and denouncing Washington’s actions in this field has become a strategic issue for Cuba.Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents declassified by the U.S. Government reveal that this institution spied on the Cubana de Aviación Company in the 1960s. The evidence demonstrates the CIA’s meticulous monitoring of Cubana de Aviación flights to the island.
The Monroe Doctrine is one of the many means by which the United States has been expanding its hegemonic eagerness over the Latin American and Caribbean region since the early stages of its existence as a nation, Rodriguez pointed out. Over the years, he added, this policy has been reworked and adjusted.
This is how the Fifth Generation War, whose territory of conquest is the human brain, works: it makes certain victims turn the aggressor into a savior; and an elaborate strategy of social lobotomy becomes a “spontaneous protest for freedom”.
In a surprising display of sincerity, the U.S. government has just admitted that it is Washington that prevents Cuba from accessing the Internet. The Department of Justice has recommended to the Federal Communications Commission to deny a permit for the island to link to the submarine cable that interconnects the Caribbean countries with the American continent.
