Quote of the day

The sycophancy messily dripping from this quote provided by “Cuba Expert” (or analyst, or scholar) Phil Peters regarding Cuban dictator Raul Castro is simply breathtaking. You have to give credit where credit is due: Not everyone has the talent and ability to be this servile. Congratulations, Phil! Te la comiste!

“Step by step, this old soldier [Raul Castro] has been preparing for the day when he will leave his post, and he has now picked the one who will relieve him.”

  1. He’s half right, George, which is good for a Cuba “expert.” But yes, this much bad faith is impressive. Of course, we could be wrong. Maybe it’s just, you know, irony. Besides, if Peters didn’t pull this stuff, somebody else would. Human cockroaches, like the insect variety, will always be with us.

  2. “Che” was much more of a soldier, albeit an inept one, than Ratso ever was. Still, Che was called “un perdedor” (a loser) by General Arnaldo Ochoa (who WAS a soldier) to his daughter Aleida’s fat face, so you can imagine what Ochoa thought of Ratso’s painfully bogus military status. I mean, one star would be a joke, but four is beyond outrageous. We’re talking nepotism and politics, pure and simple, NOT actual military training or experience. His pre-1959 “rebel” phase consisted of dressing up and playing “guerrilla” while studiously avoiding any real danger (same as Big Brother). “Un general de oficina,” period.

  3. In a way, calling him an old queen is comparable to calling him an old soldier, even if he is a closet case as has been rumored for decades. The “queen” bit is figurative, not literal, meaning there’s no royalty, nobility or blue blood involved. Similarly, the “soldier” bit in his case is just a figure of speech.
