From our Bureau of Turning the Other Cheek and Other Proven Successful Dialogue Initiatives With Ruthless Totalitarian Regimes
Yeah. Everyone knows that if the Allies had showered Germany with gifts in 1942, Hitler would have “created conditions for a broader reconciliation” between the Third Reich and the rest of the world, and especially between the Third Reich and all Jews on earth.
Yes, everyone knows that despots love reconciliation, just as they love their fellow human beings, including their enemies.
And everyone knows that no Cuban anywhere can ever be trusted to really know what is best for Cuba and its people.
Lord have mercy….
Here’s a quote from The Tablet (thanks to Asombra for finding this sulfur-encrusted jewel).
Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami called the Biden administration’s move “an important step” from the standpoint that “we’ve had the Biden administration basically ignoring Cuba for the last 15 months.” He noted also that Biden promised it would provide free internet to Cuba to circumvent the government’s control of social media when the protests erupted last summer.
“Well, Biden hasn’t done that yet almost a year later,” Archbishop Wenski told The Tablet.
In general, though, Archbishop Wenski said the eased sanctions are a plus because they can help create conditions “where there can be a broader reconciliation” between the people of Cuba and America. The archbishop added that he hopes the measures spur further steps like getting the U.S. Embassy in Cuba “working at full capacity again.”
