W Talks Cuba


President W was asked about his up coming trip to Latin America.

According to Reuters, W had nothing too new to say about Cuba.



Castro's fate will be decided "by the Almighty," Bush said on Tuesday.

"I don't know how long he's going to live but nevertheless I do believe that the system of government that he's imposed upon the people ought not to live if that's what the people decide," he told reporters representing the countries he will visit.

Bush took a dim view of the possibility of Raul Castro taking over permanently.

"What I hope happens is that we together insist that transition doesn't mean transition from one figure to another, but transition means from one type of government to a different type of government, based upon the will of the people," he said.




The Cuban regime , however seems nervous about the EU adopting a common position on Cuba which is being pushed by our friends the Czhecs.

If the US is able to align Argentina, Canada, Brazil, Colombia and others including Chile to reject the transition once Fidel dies and insist on Democratic reforms, things could get pretty ugly, pretty fast for Raul.

you write:

ARE YOU KIDDING, YOU THINK ANY OF THOSE COUNTRIES WILL SIDE WITH US.. their population would not allow their presidents to side with USA on cuban debate.. we are alone (aside from maybe czech) in terms of demanding democratic reforms.. why are we alone?

b/c we are imperalists --I want free cuba too, BUT who the FU$K are we to "reject the transition once Fidel dies" .. that is NOT for us to decided. its a soverign nation.

so, most countries that you listed will never push democratic reforms in cuba (even though they want them) b/c they RESPECT international law .

yes all those countries are american allies

sorry.everybody wnats to be our allies, except, cooks and crooks.

the cuban government as it is now is illigitimate. castro doesn't rule by the consent of the people nor does raul.

if the international community decides not legimitimize raul's government by refusing to recognize it, it will be isolated and it will most likely fall.

this is already in the works at the EU, OAS and to some degree at the UN.

that "imperialist" word is so 20th century, my friend, get with the times.

all countries have an obligation to "push" whats in their people's best interests only cooks and crooks like castro, chavez the guy from iran, kimyung-il, putin, etc act in the dis-interest of their people and in the violation of the UN human rights declaration.

oh, and brazil realllllly wants a seat on the security council......
