“FUEGO!” Castro’s firing-squads murdered three brave black Cuban youths during “Black Spring”
Lorenzo Enrique Copello Castillo, Jorge Luis Martínez Isaac, Bárbaro Leodán Sevilla García "Murdered by firing squad April 11, 2003 for trying to "hijack" a Castroite ferry to Key West.
"Highjack?"... Well, how the HELL ELSE is a Cuban supposed to get hold of a 'freakin boat in Castro's Cuba, where owning one is a crime? BTW, during the (UNSPEAKBLE!!!) Batista era Cubans probably owned more boats per-capita than Americans.
And FEAR NOT! Wayne Smith had a ready rationalization for Castro's murder of the "tres negritos" as Castro reportedly shrugged off the mens' summary murders:
"Why the (Black Spring) crackdown?" wrote Wayne Smith in his article for the neo-Stalinist rag, The Nation, "In part, it was in reaction to growing provocations on the part of the Bush Administration... (emphasis by intransigent poster).
"The death sentences also infuriated those who, like Rep. Charles B. Rangel, Democrat of New York, had been advocating a dialogue with Cuba," read a NY Times article of the time. ''This about ends that discussion,'' said Rangel to the New York Times at the time .
Well, did it?...
HAH!!!....And I predict the "reaction" to this current crackdown will fade even more quickly. Then back to business as usual for all "Cuba Experts," and all their legislative and lobbyist companeros.
