The Cuban regime continues its propaganda offensive.
Felipe Perez Roque just signed two Human Rights Covenants that Cuba had refused to sign.
But in typical Castrist fashion, he quickly announced that:
United States’ economic embargo and hostility to Cuba’s government “constitutes the most serious obstacle to the enjoyment by the Cuban people of the rights protected by the covenants”.
So basically, Perez Roque is saying that unless the United States agrees to their conditions, the regime will have no choice but to continue to oppress, starve and enslave the Cuban people.
This is a hostage situation. It always has been.
Since its inception, Fidel’s 26 of July movement, has employed terrorist methods to achieve its goals. Hell, they even “invented” air hi-jackings, so it’s no surprise.
After taking the island over, they held the whole population with a gun to their heads-once even a nuclear gun.
Every so often they release a few hostages, some escape. The former hostages feel pity on the ones with a gun still to their heads and send help which helps the criminals because that’s one less hostage to feed. Some develop the “Stockholm Syndrome” and begin to identify with the hostage taker. (there’s a lot of that going around in Miami lately)
This hostage drama has gone on for so long now, that the ringleader is dying-of old age. It seems the rest of the gang is starting to panic. The hostages are starting to revolt. The pizzas and cigarettes that the cops were sending in isn’t enough anymore. They want more.
Pretty soon, they might ask for a plane to fly out of the country-perhaps to “Wyoming”
“We are convinced that the lifting of the embargo will come in the future” said Perez Roque who added that it must be lifted “without any conditions whatsoever”.
