King Raul Castro will pick up huge gifts from fawning French fans this weekend



King Raul is enjoying himself in Paris right now.

Over the next few days he will be wined and dined and showered with gifts.

So-called “tensions” regarding human rights abuses in Raul’s kingdom will be overlooked.

In addition, (poniendole la tapa al pomo) President Hollande will make sure King Raul can avoid paying all of his debts.

France to offer Cuba more debt relief during Castro visit

France is to sign a deal with Cuba next week to ease the Caribbean island nation’s bilateral debt to Paris during a visit by the Cuban president to the French capital, a diplomatic source said yesterday.

Raul Castro is due to arrive on Saturday in Paris for a five day stay, in what will be the first official visit to France by a Cuban president since the country’s independence. [WRONG: Fidel visited in 1995]

With ties between Washington and Havana warming, France is eager to further improve relations with Cuba starting with a visit by French President Francois Hollande to the island last year.

As Havana’s biggest creditor, France played a key role in December in a debt relief deal between Cuba and the foreign governments it owes money to.

Oui, l'etat c'est moi.....
Oui, l’état c’est moi… je suis à la mode

Ah! Here are the little details that will make your skin crawl if you are a victim of this king’s brutality.

Imagine the uproar  if  France had extended the same kind of welcome to  former Chilean president Augusto Pinochet, or former South African president P.W. Botha.

If this were a just world –and if the French had any regard for ethics — King Raul would be immediately whisked to prison from the airport today and tried for crimes against humanity on Monday.

Or, even better, before being taken to court, he’d be taken directly to the Place de la Concorde and  placed in a pillory at the very same spot where King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette were guillotined, to be pelted with insults, rotten foodstuffs, and ordure.

So… since that ain’t gonna happen, lit ça et pleure (lee esto y llora, read this and weep):

Adieu aux droits humains! Vive la tyrannie!

Cuban President Raul Castro arrived in Paris on Saturday as part of his historic state visit to France. His stay in France begins with a private visit before being officially received by French President Francois Hollande under the iconic landmark of Arc de Triomphe in the French capital on Monday.

Castro will hold talks with Hollande at the Elysee presidential palace and attend a state dinner. He will meet various French officials on Tuesday.

The visit, which was announced on January 19, marks the dawn of a new era of economic and diplomatic ties for the island nation.

Cuban deputy foreign minister Rogelia Sierra said Cuba wishes to expand and further diversify its relations with France in the fields of economy, commerce, finance, investment, and culture.

According to French officials, the two countries are expected to sign an economic roadmap to develop ties.

They will also sign deals on transport, tourism and fair trade.

This is Castro’s first state visit to Europe since he took over from his elder brother Fidel as leader in 2006.

Fidel Castro had visited France in 1995 and met with its then president Francois Mitterrand.

Last May, Hollande became the first Western head of state to visit Cuba in over 50 years.

His visit took place following the thawing of relations between Cuba and the United States at the end of 2014.

Hollande called for the lifting of the US economic embargo trade embargo which has been in place since 1962.

Paris is also taking a leading role in strengthening Cuba’s political ties with Europe overall. It hopes for a new cooperation deal after years of tension over the sensitive issue of human rights in Cuba.

  1. But of course. Why wouldn’t the French, despite their revolutionary pretensions, be complicit in enabling totalitarian tyranny in Cuba? It’s just a bunch of tropical savages, after all, no different in principle from those in Haiti or Algeria, which the French were more than happy to lord it over and exploit (at least till the jig was up). It’s really very simple: Cuba’s situation is at least acceptable, if not admirable, to everyone who found (or claimed to find) South Africa’s apartheid system intolerable, and even those who give some lip service to human rights concerns will always talk admiringly about “free” health care (of whatever quality) and “free” education (however politicized). I mean, when the titular Vicar of Christ (and not just the current one) will go along with this BS, at least implicitly or tacitly, what else is there to say? Merde, indeed.

  2. As for the little bastard (the Cuban one), he was never more than a cheap punk. His (half) brother had more presence, of sorts, but we’re still talking overacted “revolutionary” kitsch. If nothing else, the French, of all people, should reject the whole Castro business for its intolerably bad taste. I doubt someone like de Gaulle would have soiled himself this way, but again, Hollande positively screams SCHMUCK.
