One of the events I was just itching to write about this past week was fidel castro’s offer to send 1,100 doctors and 25 tons – yes! 25 TONS – of medical supplies to assist in the hurricane ravaged area.
Now, if you’re a Cuban exile or Cuban-American you know just what a complete farce this is. Most of us who have family still living in Cuba get requests for such simple things as aspirins. When Cubans are unfortunate enough to need to be hospitalized, they have to bring their own bed pans and bed sheets.
So where would all of these medical supplies come from? They certainly arent coming from the supplies for the average Cuban. If castro does in fact have 25 tons of medical supplies readily available, then it must be those saved for the elite. The medical supplies that are saved for the tourist. If I were a Cuban living on the island I would be pissed, to say the least. Having to hear over and over how great the free universal healthcare is in Cuba knowing full well that supplies for Cubans are non-existent at best. And then we have el lider maximo offering up 25 tons of them to the enemy.
Talk about a rooster crowing!
And the 1,100 medical doctors. Seriously, how many of you truly believe that fidel castro would allow 1,100 of his prized slaves to leave for the United States?
Do you know what 1,100 doctors from Cuba in the states really means?
I truly hope someone in the State Department or someone in charge of coordinating relief for the Katrina victims would take up castro’s offer.
Im willing to bet not a single doctor would make it to the US. fidel castro just cant afford to lose them.
