U.S. joined by 21 nations in condemnation of Cuban dictatorship: No West European or G7 nations on that list

Bloody Hell…..now we have to wait for the other shoe to drop….

From our Bureau of Quixotic Gestures And Lists that Seem Incomplete

Santa mierda de los camellos de los Reyes Magos!

Here you go. Something like this has never happened before. The gesture reveals a lot about the U.S. State Department’s efforts. The question remains: why issue this press release now, with no major players involved? Why couldn’t the State Department get the other G7 nations on board, or any Western European state other than Austria? Were they asked to sign? And if not, why not? And if so, why have they not joined the other 20 nations and the U.S. in condemning Castro, Inc. and its repression?

It’s nice to know that the leaders of these nations — two of which (Brazil and Ecuador) were formerly in the Castro camp — support the efforts of freedom-loving Cubans. This is a victory, small though it is. Maybe the State Department is working on getting bigger fish to add their names to the list. That would be wonderful. Now, let’s hope this is an indication of bigger and better things to come that offset the inertia and leftist tilt of Jar-Jar Biden & Company.

Bloody, bloody Hell… What’s next?

From the U.S. Department of State:

We, the Foreign Ministers of Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Estonia, Guatemala, Greece, Honduras, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Republic of Korea, and Ukraine, and the United States Secretary of State, condemn the mass arrests and detentions of protestors in Cuba and call on the government to respect the universal rights and freedoms of the Cuban people, including the free flow of information to all Cubans.

On July 11, tens of thousands of Cuban citizens participated in peaceful demonstrations across the country to protest deteriorating living conditions and to demand change.  They exercised universal freedoms of expression and assembly, rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the American Convention on Human Rights, the Inter-American Democratic Charter, and the European Convention on Human Rights.

We call on the Cuban government to respect the legally guaranteed rights and freedoms of the Cuban people without fear of arrest and detention.  We urge the Cuban government to release those detained for exercising their rights to peaceful protest.  We call for press freedom and for the full restoration of Internet access, which allows economies and societies to thrive.  We urge the Cuban government to heed the voices and demands of the Cuban people.

The international community will not waver in its support of the Cuban people and all those who stand up for the basic freedoms all people deserve.

  1. It is bittersweet. There are some pleasant surprises in that list, but there are also some absolutely inexcusable absences. The latter, of course, are headed by Spain, that shameless whore. Chile should definitely have signed, given its history. Then there’s France, with its famous and evidently hollow slogan which starts with the word Liberty. And on and on and on. Well, the world IS largely full of shit.

  2. Even if Biden were in his “prime,” as opposed to progressively losing it, his heart would not be in it. It’s not a Dem thing. Not that Republicans are all that, but they can at least fake it better. So no, I’m not surprised and don’t expect significantly better from this administration. If anything, I’m angrier and more disgusted with any Cuban who voted for Biden than I am with Biden’s Cuba policy, which was bound to suck.

  3. I have to remind myself that there’s no point getting worked up over Spain’s perfidy because that misses the point and feeds into our old delusion about our “mother.” Spain was never our mother and never saw itself that way. We only hurt ourselves by clinging to that fantasy. Cuba was simply Spain’s property to use and exploit, which it did as much and as long as it could, and when it lost Cuba it never got over it–but there was no love involved, only the loss of something very valuable and highly profitable.

    The “revolution” was a consolation for Spain, because it got the hated Americans out of the picture and stoked neo-colonialist urges only too happy to be indulged. Of course the Castro people have manipulated and taken advantage of the Spanish, but Spain still feels a kind of vindication, however illusory, and it still gets off on having had the last laugh, so to speak, on the Americans. It’s sick but also logical, in its way.

  4. Notice – no Middle Eastern country on the list, even with the Abraham accords.

    But Israel IS there!

    If Trump were president, it would all be different. There would be more nations on this list and more support for the brave demonstrators in Cuba.

    • Yeah, tell it to Cubans here who voted for Biden–just like liberal Jews whose politics are anti-Israel.
