There is a concerted effort underway by anti-Cuba embargo lobbyists in this country to have the Castro regime removed from the U.S. State Department’s list of state sponsors of terror. Ignoring the Cuban dictatorship’s long history of aggression towards the U.S., and their aiding and abetting of terrorist organizations such as the FARC in Colombia, these pro-Castro lobbyist also expect us to turn a blind eye to the terrorist fugitives who now call Cuba home and enjoy the protection of the Castro government. These individuals would like us to ignore history, ignore the present, and join them in believing that the Castro regime is not a threat to the U.S. Regardless of the teddy bear persona that many so-called journalists are now trying to assign to Fidel Castro, he remains a ruthless dictator stained with the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent Cubans. Anyone who doubts this needs only to look at the brutal and violent oppression that takes place on a daily basis in Cuba, and the crackdown carried out by State Security all over the island last week on the anniversary of Orlando Zapata Tamayo’s death.
Fidel Castro, his brother Raul, and the aging cronies who surround them all came to power using terrorism, and they have maintained that power through the continued use of terror. To subscribe any other persona to these ruthless murderers is to ignore the past, and the present.
With that said, how comfortable should the U.S. government and U.S. citizens be knowing that only 90 miles from our coast there exists a massive biological weapons stockpile in the hands of a rogue regime with no regard for human life? How willing should the U.S. be to trust a regime known for its criminal acts and complete disregard for human rights with enough bio-weapons to wipe out millions of Americans?
Think about this the next time you hear someone say that Cuba poses no threat to the U.S.
