Quote of the day

At about the same time Cuba's Ladies in White were being viciously stoned by a violent mob of thugs on orders from the Castro dictatorship, Senior Fellow and Deputy Director of the Brookings Institution, Ted Piccone, was saying this about Cuba and its criminally ruthless dictatorship:

"The trend toward reform in Cuba is evident and suggests that an inflection point is approaching. Now is the time to employ a new paradigm by opening a long overdue direct dialogue with our next-door neighbor and thereby test the willingness of the Cuban government to engage constructively, including on the case of U.S. citizen Alan Gross. By invoking his executive authority to expand trade, travel and communications with the Cuban people, Obama can continue to help them make the transition from subjects to citizens. The moment has come to rise above historical grievances and extend that outstretched hand he so eloquently promised just four years ago."

Methinks the only "outstretched hand" the Castro dictatorship is interested in seeing at the moment is one with rocks in it to hurl at dissidents.

    I am going to have to disagree with the resident Hungarian Cuba Expert/Analyst/yours trulyist...the only outstreched hand the regime wants to see is one that's full of ca$h..just ask Rey Ordonez and El Duque
