An American invasion of Cuba

Juan Abreu in his Emanaciones #1410 (my translation):


I have always thought that those who are outraged when I say the United States should have invaded Cuba many years ago are really saying that they prefer Cubans to have fifty-four years of dictatorial rule (and the years that will follow), thousands executed, millions exiled, tens of thousands drowned in the Florida Straits, and the absolute lack of liberties along with a military and autocratic regime.

I don’t. I prefer an American invasion. An American invasion would be a much lesser horror compared to the horrors of Castroism. As far as I am concerned, to prefer Castroism over an American invasion seems miserable, hypocritical, complicit, and vile.

  1. That will be easy, Honey; I never counted Paul in. I find the Paul brand of foreign policy to be just as disconnected from reality and as dangerous and the Democratic brand.

  2. Ironically, for all those who want to deny the reality of a relatively prosperous pre-Castro Cuba, is that each time the US or Briain intervened in Cuba, our standard of living improved by leaps and bounds!

  3. Thank the folks who raged against the “neo-colonialist!” Platt amendment and finally had it abrogated…(but shuuusssssh!!!because you can find many of these viejitos at Versailles daily, or playing dominoes nearby–raging against Castroism!– in brief: raging against what the Platt Amendment–in practice in 1960–would have stomped out in two weeks!)
