America's Darkest Cuba Images

Relate to its genocidal Cuban policies!!
{Updated: Friday, November 3rd, 2017}
      I would like to invite democracy-loving Americans to study the first three photos is this essay. The photos were taken this week at the start of November, 2017. They show a little Cuban boy named Diego and his friend, a little Cuban girl named Mariana. On the island of Cuba, there are people who love them dearly and do all they can to care for them. But in a neighboring country, the superpower United States, there is a small contingent of self-serving and revengeful Cuban-Americans who, through several generations now, have punished these children...as well as their parents and grandparents...all their lives. The punishment dates back to January of 1959 when the Cuban Revolution overthrew the vile U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship, which essentially and quickly resurfaced on U. S. soil, particularly nearby Miami. After a record number of assassination attempts in 1959 and 1960; after a blistering series of terrorist bombings throughout the 1960s and 1970s, after a failed Bay of Pigs military attack in 1961, and after a genocidal embargo-blockade imposed in 1962, Revolutionary Cuba, against all odds, remains a beleaguered sovereign nation. But the genocidal embargo-blockade imposed against the vulnerable island in 1962 remains to this day and is already enshrined in history as the all-time longest and cruelest embargo-blockade ever imposed by a strong nation against a much weaker nation. As we study this week's photos of the two Cuban children, I believe Americans should be ashamed that they have allowed a handful of rogues...for all these decades...to continually threaten and punish totally innocent foreign children.
Cuban children -- Mariana & Diego.
      Cuban children -- Mariana & Diego. Most of the whole wide world truly believes that a few rouges hiding behind the skirts of the world's superpower should not be allowed to punish and threaten totally innocent children in a much smaller, sovereign nation. AND THAT PRECISE ISSUE, to America's everlasting shame, was vividly examined this week -- November 1, 2017 -- on the global stage at the United Nations.
         "Genocide" is a word that the United States has used to describe what powerful rogue nations sometimes do to masses of people in weaker nations. The billboard above accuses the United States of "genocide" against the Cuban people because of the U. S. embargo-blockade against Cuba that was first imposed in 1962 and continues to this day, with the U. S. government and, more importantly, the U. S. people, apparently oblivious to the image this projects around the world. That "genocidal" image came up for a vote again this week in the United Nations...and never have such votes on the global stage done anything other than condemn the United States in the eyes of the entire world. There are many Americans who are appalled about this image but, unfortunately, they are not the decision-makers.

       The photo above was taken in September of 2017 and it shows President Trump, his Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, and his Chief of Staff John Kelly when they all appeared at the United Nations in New York. By the time this photo was taken, it was known that the Trump administration would reverse the decent and sane overtures that the Obama presidency had made to correct the issue -- Cuba -- that has most defiled and soiled the image of the United States and democracy since the 1950s. And now, ten months into Trump's first year as U. S. President, his UN Ambassador Haley this week defiled and soiled America's image at the UN.

     On the global UN stage this week, U. S. Ambassador Nikki Haley tried to defend what the entire world considers indefensible -- the genocidal U. S. embargo of Cuba. She, of course, didn't mention that the embargo was imposed way back in 1962 for the purpose of straving, depriving and bringing misery to the innocent masses on the island to induce them to rise up and overthrow their revolutionary government. Incredibly, neither that cruel fact nor many other cruel facts have succeeded in regaining control of Cuba but Nikki Haley is shown above trying to justify it this week at the UN. In doing so, she fully knew that all the other nations -- 192 of them -- knew she was lying. And in doing so she was assuming the American people and the mainstream U. S. media were/are too stupid or too afraid to challenge her statements. Her lies included: {1} "The United States does not fear isolation in this chamber or anywhere else." With that statement she was reminding the other 192 nations that the U. S. is the world's nuclear superpower and thus their opposition to America's Cuban policy was/is pointless. And {2} "We want to demonstrate continued solidarity with the Cuban people." That sentence was Nikki Haley's cruelest lie at the UN this week and to emphasize that point was the reason I opened this essay with the three photos of the two precious Cuban children that she so coldly referenced.

      Exactly one year ago President Obama's very decent Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, as shown above, stood proudly and told the other 192 nations that the United States was not so heartless that it would support the Congressionally-mandated genocidal embargo against Cuba. The delegates of all the other nations, including Israel, responded to Samantha Power with what the Associated Press called "sustained, standing-room-only applause." And then, one year ago, those nations voted in unanimity...191-to-0...to condemn the cruel U. S. embargo against Cuba. The U. S., refusing to support its own embargo, abstained from voting. Thus, so did Israel, which is dependent on massive economic and military aid from the United States. But Israel's abstentions or votes merely point out that the U. S., the world's richest and most powerful nation, is unable to buy off or scare off any other nation in the entire world to get it to support its Cuban policies.

    So this week, instead of the unanimous 191-to-0 condemnation of the United States last year when Barack Obama was President, the UN vote during the first year of the Trump presidency was a 191-to-2 condemnation of the U. S. embargo against Cuba. The photo above registered that vote -- Yes 191; No 2; and Abstain 0. Again, only bought-and-paid-for Israel voted with the United States to support the genocidal embargo against Cuba. If Americans had enough courage to study the photo above, which registered that vote this week at the United Nations, I believe they would...and certainly should...be ashamed of themselves for letting that vote condemn what once was by far the world's most admired and most respected nation. But this week -- Nov. 1, 2017 -- at the United Nations the U. S. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, coldly reminded the world that, because of America's unmatched nuclear power, "The United States does not fear isolation in this chamber or anywhere else." With that statement, the Trump presidency reminded the world that America's Cuban policy was back fully in the hands of a handful of Batistiano benefactors and while Trump is President there is nothing the rest of the world can do about it.

     At the United Nations this week, Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said, "The United States lacks the slightest moral authority to criticize Cuba or to even criticize other strong nations that prey on smaller, weaker nations." With their votes, all the other 190 nations -- other than bought-and-paid-for Israel -- agreed with Cuba's official statement delivered by Bruno Rodriguez. The New York Times and the Associated Press also used basically the same sentence to say that the U. S. destruction of its international image is "self-inflicted related to Cuba and the Trump administration is undermining its goals to improve relations with Latin America because all Latin American nations vehemently oppose and resent America's targeting of Cuba." And not surprisingly, on the CBS News website that reported on this week's UN vote, the first two comments were: {1} "What utter hypocrisy..." in scathingly comparing the U. S. sweet trade deals with Big Boys like China compared to bullying little Cuba; and {2} "Americans are such hateful rotten people." That latter comment atop the CBS News website is not true, of course, but America's cruel Cuban policy generates such opinions to the acute embarrassment of America's best friends and to the massive joy of America's worst enemies around the world.
     The graphic above depicts the worldwide image of America's Cuban policy. It is one that the United States cannot justify at the United Nations or any other domestic or international forum, and even Nikki Haley as well as her boss know that is true.
       Revolutionary Cuba, through hell and high water, has been a sovereign nation since January 1, 1959. It is not beyond being criticized. But it has tried so hard to take care of its people far better than they were cared for during the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship and also far better than the Batistiano-Mafiosi dictation of America's Cuban policy since January 1, 1959. The rest of the world understands that even if propagandized Americans do not. But with each yearly vote at the UN, the world reminds Americans that America's Cuban policy is acutely cruel and unjust.
Mariana & Diego.
     The rest of the world agrees that these two precious Cuban children, photographed on their island this week, do not deserve to be targeted in 2017 by a United States embargo first imposed way back in 1962 for the stated purpose of starving, depriving, and making misery on the island to induce Cubans to overthrow their revolutionary government, presumably so the U.S.-backed Batistianos-Mafiosi can regain control and once again allow rich American businessmen to partake of the spoils. The UN vote this week revealed yet again that worldwide opinion favors Cuban children, like the two shown above, over vile and greedy urchins who target them from the sanctuary of a nearby Superpower, the United States of America.
And by the way:
    On November 1, 2017, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts announced that it will have 12,000 rooms in Cuba by the year 2020. Iberostar is located in Palma, Majorca, Spain. It specializes in 4 and 5-star hotels and shows faith in Cuba's "exciting future."
