Quote of the day – Brazil has no qualms supporting Cuba’s murderous dictatorship

In Carlos Alberto Montaner's column in El Nuevo Herald, a former U.S. ambassador to Brazil who preferred to remain anonymous describes how Brazil not only has no desire to see democracy in Cuba, but they are also actively working to ensure the island remains under the yoke of the tyrannical Castro regime (translation by Capitol Hill Cubans):

"The large South American nation does not care, nor pretends to care, about defending the democratic principles systematically violated by Cuba. To the contrary, ex-President Lula da Silva takes investors to the island to strengthen the dictatorship of the Castros. It's estimated in one billion the amount buried by the Brazilians in the development of the Port of Mariel super-port, near Havana. Cuban influence in Brazil is cunning and very intense. Jose Dirceu, Lula's former Chief of Staff, had been an agent of Cuba's intelligence services. He had been exiled in Cuba [during Brazil's military dictatorship], where he was submitted to a cosmetic surgery to change his face and returned to Brazil with a new identity (as a Jewish merchant named Carlos Henrique Gouveia de Mello). With Lula's help, he turned Brazil into one of the biggest collaborators of the Cuban dictatorship."

    Damn. Castro bitches everywhere. But yes, it's eminently Latrine.

    I just hope that, should a free Cuba act with the requisite dignity (which is hardly a given), none of the countless Latrine SOBs will be surprised at being regarded and treated as such. Lord, the nausea.
