Peace in Cuba: Day 1

So yesterday's "Peace without Borders" concert featuring Juanes and several other "artists" went off as planned.  Now all that remains is for the castro dictatorship to declare peace.  After all, peace was the objective, no?  And the regime has waged a war for the last fifty years.  Not a war against Yanqui imperialism, not a war against Cuba's giant neighbor to the north.  The castro brothers have been waging war on Cuba's citizens.  They harass them, they imprison them, they extort them, they abuse them.  Fifty years of violence against the very people the Cuban revolution was meant to serve.

So starting today we will count the days until the castro brothers declare peace so that then we can congratulate Juanes on a job well done.  It's early still but I have seen no change in attitude from the rulers of the island.  But we have to be patient, after all Juanes is just an "artist" not a politician. But I'm sure if we wait long enough his gesture will pay off.  After all, how could it not.  I'm sure his music is already having its desired effect on the cold hearts of Cuba's geriatric tyrants.

Join me as we anticipate PEACE IN CUBA!

    Yeah, I'll anticipate PEACE IN CUBA just like I'm still waiting for world hunger to go away because they sang We Are the World.
    It's all so pathetic.

    What's crazy is that the Cuban govt would say that they have always "been at Peace" and that the mean ol Yanqui's invaded them and forced them to get nukes for protection.

    Leftie: "Just stop bullying Cuba and they'll be our friend"

    Raul: "I wish I could nuke New York City"
