Cuba “Experts” Julia Sweig and Phil Peters exposed yet again.(the sequel to the five billionth sequel)
"A shipment of Cuban weapons to North Korea last summer violated the U.N. arms embargo on the Asian nation and showed a "comprehensive planned strategy to conceal" the cargo, a panel of U.N. experts has reportedly concluded."
But...but...but?...The Castro regime had taken pains to explain this issue:
:the 508-foot Chong Chon Gang carried 240 tons of "obsolete defensive weapons" that were to have been repaired in North Korea and returned to Cuba as part of a commercial deal.
Two other people took pains to explain this issue in a strikingly similar manner:
"What this incident says about Cuba is that there aren't a lot of places where you can go to get these old airplanes and antiaircraft systems fixed." (Phil Peters 7/19/2015)
"It's not about Havana trying to circumvent an arms embargo. It's about: how about we refurbish our old weapons" (Julia Sweig (7/28/2013)
In an intellectually sane world folks (Peters, Sweig) who relentlessly parrot a totalitarian regime's propaganda would not be known as scholarly and impartial "experts," on the regime. They would be known as agents of that regime, despite neglecting the required paperwork.
