Quote of the Day: Any moment now, the Cuban people will surprise us

Nobel Prize winning author Mario Vargas Llosa on how the Cuban people and their yearning to be free may soon surprise us all (via Martí Noticias – my translation):

“The Cuban people have unfortunately suffered under a terrible dictatorship for 60 years that would appear to have destroyed its roots [in liberty and democracy]; but I believe that is not the case, I believe the roots are still there and at any moment, the Cuban people are going to surprise us all. Just like we were all surprised by Chile, I believe Cuba will be giving us a surprise any moment now.”
