The Spanish government’s Diarrhea Storm

Juan Abreu's Emanaciones #1290 (my translation):

1290

The Cuban dictatorship has turned over Carromero to the Spanish government. He is the man who witnessed the assassination of Oswaldo Payá and Harold Cepero. The Spanish government has behaved in a vile and cowardly manner as all Spanish governments tend to do when dealing with the assassins who rule the island. Nothing new here.

Now, Carromero, who we should not forget is a Party man (Popular Party), will obey the agreement between the Spanish government and the Castro regime. And what could that agreement be? It is the agreement that Carromero will keep his mouth shut and only repeat the official version of the "accident." Then he can be free and return to the welcoming bosom of the Party.

And on top of this pile of shit, I also have to tolerate a so-called Gonzalez from the horrific island. When it's not a Gonzalez it is a Vicent, but the Spanish correspondents in Cuba are first parrots of the Castros and later, and only later, journalists. Pragmatism in the storm, is the headline in El Mundo: It must be the diarrhea storm of the Spanish government.

The year comes to an end and and when it comes to the horrific island, the racism, the cowardice, the cynicism, and the complicity in a crime by a large portion of the world, it all remains the same.
