Spain’s not so motherly love for Cuba
If Spain is the mother country, then the relationship between this mother, and her child Cuba makes ¨Mommie Dearest¨, a love story.
There are days when the shit pile nightmare of Castro's Cuba exceeds one's capacity.
This post, a two-parter from Zoé Valdés, is a must read. It's a double from Juan Abreu. First up, he eviscerates the Spanish government, not just for its cowardly retreat and abandoment of justice in the Payá case, but the entirety of its history with the former colony. My transaltion, which I know is inadequate to give this article justice, but I think it's important, and by promoting it, I hope others, more fluent than I will give it a proper translation.
There will be no investigation of the killing of Oswaldo Payá. Not on behalf of the Spanish Government. Sorry for the relatives of Paya, but someone should have said it was useless that it is impossible that the Spanish Government take the big black ** of the Cuban dictatorship that gives much taste, and that there is nothing to expect from the Spanish Government in favour of the victims of the Castro, nothing. (my emphasis)
The best Spaniards could do was to annihilate all the Cubans when they invented concentration camps in Cuba in 1896, and they killed there up to ten per cent of the population of the island. So the world could have saved all the Cuban crap from a century ago. But they left the work half. And so will we. Here I leave a photo of the time. A photo of one of them, a Cuban in Spanish concentration camp. The first concentration camps of modern history! To make it clear that they could perfectly annihilate all the tribe Cuba if they persisted a little. But they left the work half!
Yes, this is Cuba; this is a historical moment of Spain's motherly love. Now she just screws Cuba through proxy--the current sons of Spain ruling Cuba. The Castro's are Spain's, and to be fair, anyone with a stuffed wallet, willing pimps.
The second part is a takedown of Alicia Alonso, "a great suck-up of Fidel Castro, as she was before with Batista"
