President Barack Obama spoke today in the presence of the hardliners in the Communist Party of Cuba, who sat like stone-faced vultures on the balcony of the Gran Teatro in Havana. The Washington Post commented: “… the Americans clapped and the Cubans sat in stony silence.”
Ironically (and tragically) Obama’s speech took place while news unfolded of terrorists attacks in Brussels. This is where my readers need to stop and think– because socialists (this includes the mainstream media) want you to forget the following “minor detail:”
Cuba has been a state sponsor of terrorism for decades— and was listed as such by the U.S. State Department– along with Iran, Syria and Sudan. Obama removed Cuba from this list recently, as part of his one-way farcical diplomacy with the Communists in Havana.
Obama’s visit to Cuba has only served to further legitimize the murderous Communist dictatorship in Cuba– which continues to internationalize its hatred towards the United States, while it steps up the persecution and murder of its people.
It is extremely important for the world to note that while Obama was speaking, thousands are fleeing Cuba, by any means possible. On March 19, nine Cubans died at sea and 18 were rescued by a Royal Caribbean cruise ship after their 30-foot boat was found about 130 miles from Florida’s southwest coast (off Marco Island), pursuant to a report issued by the U.S. Coast Guard. They had been at sea for 22 days.
