How’s this for sicko news? With all the mis-steps the U.S. is stumbling into over Iran and Syria, with its preposterous new efforts to “talk” and “negotiate” with those menacing predators, who should show up now but castro’s little boob brother, raul, now claiming that he, too, wants to “talk.” Evidently, he thinks the Syrian and Iranian dictators are getting a good deal from Uncle Sucker, and he, too, wants to join in the spoils.
The whole thing disgusts me bigtime. All of a sudden, raul wants to talk!
Have you ever heard anything as repulsive as this? Here this little cucaracha is, imprisoning thousands of Cubans, impoverishing millions, solemnly declaring that he won’t do a thing for the Cuban people other than make their lives as miserable as possible – and now he thinks he’s cooked up a good plot to enrich himself further, by heading down to Uncle Sucker’s talk shop!
Oh suddenly he wants talks now! Here’s what he can talk about if the U.S. decides to waste time with him:
=When he’s going to admit he murdered 15,000 people in cold blood, and drove another 85,000 to their deaths on the high seas in shark-invested waters?
=When he’s going to pay back the $1.8 billion worth of U.S. properties he confiscated from U.S. citizens, the highest mass theft of U.S. citizens’ goods in its entire history?
=When he’s going to release Cuba’s huge count of political prisoners?
=When he’s going to explain, once again, how he tried to set off a 9/11 style bomb at Macy’s and around New York in late 1962?
=When he’s going to explain why he urged the Soviets to fire nuclear weapons at the U.S. in 1963?
=When he’s going to explain the deaths of numerous Americans, most recently, the atrocious cold-blooded murders of the charity-giving Brothers to the Rescue, who were shot down in cold blood on none other than Raul’s own orders himself?
=Why his government broke its promises on exit visas for Cubans who are given them by western embassies? Why Elian, a mere child, was politicized, against all promises not to? Why retributions are taking place against Cubans who try to flee his regime and upon being unjustly sent back, experience horrific repercussions?
=Why he’s got so much cash stashed in Shanghai, Switzerland, Argentina and Chile?
=Why he has failed to improve the lot of Cubans after 47 years of absolute ironclad rule and taken Cuba from the 3rd richest country in the hemisphere to the second-poorest in terms of economics and the very poorest in terms of liberties?
=Why today’s Cubans are lining up to move to Italy permanently instead of Italians lining up to move to Cuba, as they once did back in 1959?
=Why he thinks he has any sort of right to rule without elections, as is done in every other country in the hemisphere?
Let him talk about that, and then maybe the U.S. should get back to him.
For the rest of us, we can all read or reread Humberto Fontova’s brilliant book, ‘Fidel, Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant,‘ for perspective on why raul has no business talking to us, or more elementally, being in any power.
