Ay! The man who fired 30 shots at the Cuban embassy in Washington may not have injured any human beings –fortunately — but he did manage to hit a statue of highly revered Cuban national hero José Martí.
No information is available yet on the shooter Alexander Alazo or his motives, but Castronoid Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez was quick to blame the Trumpinator AND “the blockade” for the attack.
No, joke. Brunito El Maldito really DID say that.
So, there you have it. Apparently “the blockade” is a nearly omnipotent malevolent entity equal to the dark side of The Force in the Star Wars universe. And Brunito’s iblame-throwing prowess is far more impressive than the shooter’s marksmanship.

A man armed with a high-powered assault rifle fired multiple rounds at the Cuban embassy in Washington early Thursday, authorities said, damaging the building and leading Havana to lodge a protest.
Police arrested the suspect, identified as 42-year-old Alexander Alazo of Aubrey, Texas. No one was injured.
“This morning at approximately 2:15 am, US Secret Service officers responded to the Embassy of Cuba following reports of shots fired,” the Secret Service said in a statement.
There was no motive given for the attack.
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez summoned the US charge d’affaires in Havana, Mara Tekach, to make a “strong protest” against what he called “terrorist aggression” against the embassy in Washington.
“It is not possible to disassociate this event from the upsurge in the US government’s policy of aggression and hostility toward Cuba, or from the tightening of the blockade” on the Caribbean island, Rodriguez said in a statement to national television.
