  • Gallardo: Asombra, your enlightened words are always a pleasure to read. However, I have long concluded that USA is indeed responsible...

  • asombra: Carlos, the monkeys are hideous. The top one reminds me of Woody Allen, and the paired ones remind me of Mia Farrow. Yikes.

  • asombra: “If the desired ultimate result is truly the democratization of our nation…” Sorry, but that is NOT the goal...

  • asombra: It never ceases to strike me how these two bastards who were NEVER real soldiers and NEVER risked their own necks spent DECADES...

  • asombra: Such classy people, our dictators. As classy as they look.

Cuba: The Pope’s shameful trip

Most times,  it is best not to post in anger. And sometimes, you have no choice.

Cuba: The Pope’s shameful trip

Yeah, yeah, now the Pope’s given another Mass in Havana’s Revolution Square, right under the Che monument (Che monument soon to get a Galway branch, like a bank). Benedict gave lip service to hope and change.

Raul Castro got the photo-op of his lifetime, getting a Papal blessing, even when Hugo Chavez didn’t attend,

and Fidel Castro got a private audience with the Pope

The meeting followed Benedict’s open-air Mass in the same public square where a younger, healthier Castro once delivered official speeches that lasted for hours and frequently railed against the United States.

For Christ’s sake.

Benedict turned a deaf ear to the people clamoring for freedom – in the video above you can hear the chant of “libertad, libertad” (freedom, freedom).

The Catholic Church remains silent on arrest of protestor and hundreds of dissidents in Cuba, yet,

Unofficial reports also seem to confirm the future saint Fidel’s first miracle: the instantaneous disappearance from the island of the Ladies in White and all dissidents.

The hand of God lets go of Cuba and Cubans?

I wouldn’t know about the hand of God.

But going by the evidence, one can safely conclude that the Pope sure doesn’t have b*lls.

    At least Raul had the sense to wear white.
    This Pope is a disgrace.
    I wonder if those shouting libertad were arrested and tortured.

    Disgusting... And then we have Andrea Mitchell, ABC news telling us how great the Cuban Healthcare system is...Americans studying to be doctors in Cuba, spread communist talking points and giddy because Cuba trains such great doctors! Really? Oh yeah, the best part for these doctors is that they don't have to worry about paying back loans...they can go to their small American towns and spread communism to all the poor people...Great!

    The onslaught continues my friends...batten down the hatches! The Pope is leading the charge....
