Allen West: ‘Cuba is looking for a new sugar daddy’

Michele Kirk at BIZPAC Review:

Allen West: 'Cuba is looking for a new sugar daddy'

Congressman Allen West responded with concern to an audience question about a possible Russian naval base in Cuba at Friday’s monthly town hall meeting.

“We have a soft underbelly right here in the United States of America, as we look to our south, and we’ve got to pay attention to it,” West said.

West pointed out that the only real military presence America has in this hemisphere is the Coast Guard, quoting the U.S. Southern Command in Miami, which oversees the region.

“I have big concerns about what’s happening right here in our hemisphere,” West said. “We don’t have anything in this hemisphere, but yet you have Hezbollah training camps, you have Hugo Chavez, you have the Ortega brothers, and you have narco traffickers in Mexico that are working with Iran and Hezbollah.”

The congressman said President Obama does not think Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is a credible threat, warning that as soon as you don’t see someone as a threat, they become one.
