Clinton Pumps Offensive against Cuba

By Circles Robinson

Raul Castro in a recent speech in which he criticized the US media offensive against Cuba.

HAVANA TIMES, April 10 — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that Cuba’s leaders Raul and Fidel Castro do not want Washington to lift the economic blockade on the island, in place for a half century.

Speaking to university students and professors in Kentucky, Clinton said:  “It is my personal belief that the Castros do not want to see an end to the embargo and do no want to see normalization with the United States, because they would lose all of their excuses for what hasn’t happened in Cuba in the last 50 years.”

“I find that very sad, because there should be an opportunity for a transition to a full democracy in Cuba and it’s going to happen at some point, but it may not happen any time soon,” she added.

Clinton did not mention that it is the US that unilaterally has maintained the blockade on Cuba and that it also prohibits its citizens from visiting the Caribbean island without special US Treasury Dept. permission.

The Obama administration and Congress have the power to end the blockade independent of whether the Cuban leaders really want that to occur.  The same goes for the  travel ban.

  • So if she wants to get rid of “The Castros” why doesn`t she lift the bloquade? Either she`s dum, then she shouldt work as state secretary, ignorant, then she should leave her post to others even the more, or cinical, one way or the other, would be better if she just shut up.

  • ‘Billary’ — or any of those other murderous clowns in the U.S. oligarchy — speaking about “democracy”, is an obscenity visited upon the people of the World. We should wash our ears whenever these people speak within our hearing. Please continue-on in your struggle to build real democracy — socialist democracy — in spite of the 50 years of brutal subversion you have faced over it. Anyone should be able to see what a total sham bourgeois “democracy” is — most especially the U.S. variety. But their ability to bribe and brainwash is fast fading — and so they ramp up the aggression. Now is not the time to relax and compromise with these sociopathic swindlers and backstabbers.
