On the surface, this may seem as an admission that the revolution is in trouble and that the tyrant was exalting the Cuban youth and trusting them with the future of the “socialist paradise”. BULL
Now, you may think I’m some paranoid hard-line Cuban hot-head exile for not taking Fidel at his word, but I know what I know.
When you grow up in a regime whose only purpose is to subjugate you and pound you into submission, you develop a sixth sense for veiled threats and warnings.
Over at Babalú, I expressed my humble opinion that this statement was merely a threat to the Cuban youth that failure was not an option and that there would be consequences if failure seemed imminent.
Today in Juventud Rebelde, the youths being trained to be MINIT operatives, that is to say the Cuban version of the Gestapo or Stassi have pledged allegiance to Castro and his thugs:
"the young people of the Department of the Interior (MINIT) will not defraud the deposited in us by Fidel, Raul, the Party, the Revolution and the people"
This means that if the rest of Island’s youth, even those conscripted into the armed forces, even think of rebelling , they will have to deal with these up-and-coming repressors.
