HAVANA TIMES – The top leaders of the Cuban military, Communist Party and government accompany general/president Raul Castro, 84, in the front row at the July 26th commemoration in Santiago de Cuba.

The event for the 62nd anniversary of the attack on the Moncada garrison, which sparked the Cuban revolution five and a half years later in 1959, had the keynote speech from Jose Ramon Machado, 84, the number two man in the Communist Party.

Machado insisted on the importance of “not forgetting history, including the words of Fidel Castro, which contain the roots of our values, our ideology and our independence, as well as the living legend of the founders of our country,” reported the official Granma newspaper.

  • John, they have their own McDonalds’! You must know that!

  • John does rock Carlyle. I’m sure he lives in a box with no TV, radio, computer,
    cell phone, cheez-its, netflix (no tv) fridge, stove, hot plate, hot and cold running water (google mountain man), heat or air conditioning, electricity (as in no blackouts) car, bike, ice cream, beer, fritos, radical movie theatres, books, google search (no computer) forget apple because if has any products conceived by another capitalistic pig it’s over
    etc. etc. I love the guy! he’s the real deal! oh, forgot, bathroom!

  • I agree that the U.S. will be orchestrating any meaningful change. Raul and his team will handle that. A move to individual versus collective approaches has taken hold in many areas of economy. This trend will continue as it is paying off. How to tax, regulate and control will all evolve for non stare owned enterprises.

  • As I have written before, US policies towards Cuba from the Monroe Doctrine onwards have been a succession of political errors. Banning US citizens from travelling there being just one small example.

  • No Mr. Goodrich, Cuba has half a HOCKEY team. The other half defected at the Pan American Games seeking the freedom that you and I enjoy.
    Five mansions plus his two island retreat suffice for Fidel Castro Ruz.
