Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez receives death threat on her blog

This is typical behavior for the Cuban dictatorship and its thugs. It's how they roll. Fidel calls it the "battle of ideas," but the "idea" he is referring to is to silence, destroy, and/or kill anyone who opposes or exposes you.

Here is the threat posted as a comment on Yoani's blog from someone going by the name of Roberto. Via Punt de Vista (my translation):

"We hope someone will take some type of action to put an end to this ulcer, an accident outside of Cuba, a kidnapping, a stray bullet. Or a cancer that will bring about her death over time. I have a feeling this is the beginning of the end for this mercenary buffoonery. Outside of Cuba there is not much contemplation, you can be murdered in any country and nothing happens."
