Hypocrites Who Assault Cuba

China Is TOO BIG to Assault!!
And So Is Vietnam!!
{Monday, December 11th, 2017}
      The Chairman of Ford Motor Company, Bill Ford, this week reemphasized the U. S. hypocrisy in its decades-old attempt to destroy little Cuba while being afraid of its two old war opponents -- China and Vietnam. Both of those Communists powers are Super Trade Partners of the United States. In the 1950s China's infusion of 500,000 troops turned the Korean War into a U. S. disaster while in the 1960s North Vietnam's victory in the long, bloody Vietnam War over massive U. S. forces fused all of Vietnam under Communist rule. So, in the fading days of 2017 China is on a path to replace the U. S. as the world's #1 economic power as it also begins to challenge America's military prowess -- with massive help from U. S. companies like Ford Motor Company. This week both the Detroit Free Press and USA Today published a major article written by Phoebe Wall Howard. The article is entitled: "Ford's Designs on China Include 50 New Vehicles." It said that "Ford plans to introduce 50 new vehicles in China by 2025." The article quoted the Ford Chairman, Bill Ford, who was in Shanghai, as saying: "China is not only the largest car market in the world, it's also at the heart of electric vehicle and SUV growth and the mobility movement." With friends like Bill Ford, Communist China is poised to overtake the U. S. as the world's economic...and maybe military...Superpower, the U. S. that picks on LITTLE Cuba.
      Last month -- November, 2017 -- U. S. President Donald Trump made sure to visit and suck up to Communist China's President Zi Jinping. Zi is now considered the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao, and far too powerful to be challenged by the United States of America! After the lovely handshake above, Trump told the media, "I like him and I believe he likes me a lot." Trump, of course, hopes that is so.
       Back in November, of course, President Trump sucked up to Communist Vietnam's President Tran Dai Quang. The three Trump predecessors -- Obama, Bush, and Clinton -- had done the same thing to the Vietnamese leaders. In other words, if you can't beat them, join them...and make them a major trading partner while also encouraging American tourists and businessmen to visit both China and Vietnam.
      American tourists visiting Vietnam today flock to a major attraction -- the immense network of connecting underground tunnels that enabled Communist North Vietnam to defeat first French and then American armies supporting non-Communist South Vietnam. After the French loss, some smart Washington politicians warned warmongers that, "To beat the North Vietnamese you would have to kill them, women, and children." That warning, of course, simply went unheeded.
    The warmongers in Washington -- realizing their hubris could be concealed by easily classified U. S. documents -- believed they had something the defeated French didn't have, and that was an Air Force that could bomb any nation into submission. In the 1960s Americans on television watched B-52s -- just one part of the U. S. Air Force -- drop millions of tons of bombs on North Vietnam. Also, of course, deadly chemicals were dropped to defoliate forests so the bombers could better see who and what they were bombing. But the warmongers, like the French, had miscalculated...even when 500,000 U. S. soldiers were on the ground to take advantage of history's greatest air bombardments. There were two reasons the U. S. military was humiliated in Vietnam: {1} As the French had learned, the North Vietnamese were willing to fight to the last person; and {2} the amazing underground tunnels shielded enough of their soldiers and weapons to keep fighting until, finally, the American people got tired of the casualties. The Vietnam War officially ended in 1975. Since then, the world-famed city of Saigon has been known as Ho Chi Minh City. Meanwhile, one conclusion of the Washington warmongers proved correct: classifying...hiding...their warmongering worked and to this day very little of the stupidity and hubris, which American tax-dollars pay for, has been de-classified.
Vietnamese women were vital during the War.
     The stern-faced Vietnamese female soldier above captured a South Vietnam soldier. She also took his U.S.-supplied rifle, which gave her 2 rifles and a prisoner.
2 North Vietnamese female fighters.
2 Cuban female fighters -- Haydee & Celia.

Vietnamese girl captured U. S. pilot.
      Both the photos and the descriptions of the do-or-die Vietnamese female guerrilla fighters are authentic but not intended to demean American soldiers, many of whom were my friends or relatives. Few of them wanted to go to that war and many who returned home alive were maimed or emotionally harmed. One of history's most famed Americans, the boxing champ Muhammad Ali, in 1967 was sentenced to five years in prison for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War. His famous quotation depicted above explained his decision, which eventually was accepted by most Americans. Ali's given birth name in Louisville, Kentucky, was Cassius Clay.
      Both before and after his 1967 stance on the Vietnam War, Clay/Ali was the Heavyweight Champion of the World and his legacy today crowns him as one of America's all-time greatest and best-known icons. Of course, classified U. S. documents still attempt to assuage the culpable reputations of many government officials who sicced the Mafia on Cuba in 1952, spawning the Cuban Revolution, and who sicced those B-52s on Vietnam in the 1960s and 1970s. In the interim, Clay/Ali's quotation has stood the test of time, eclipsing the warmongers. 
     Both Cuba and Vietnam today feature strong female representation in their governments, derivatives of lessons learned from foreign-misogynistic wars. Above a Cuban female leader signs an agreement with a Vietnamese female leader.
     In November of 2017 Vietnam began sending tons of rice to Cuba to help the island recover from recent devastating the U. S. embargo continues to try to starve Cubans on the island to appease a few hard-line Cubans in the United States.
Vietnamese rice bound free-of-charge to Cuba, Nov.-2017.
  Meanwhile in Washington, Senator Marco Rubio and President Donald Trump believe now is the time, once and for all, to destroy Revolutionary Cuba. Fidel Castro died a year ago at age 90; a drought destroyed vital tobacco and cotton crops; hurricanes in 2017 destroyed thousands of Cuban homes and other properties; export prices for nickel, a key Cuban mineral, dropped precipitously; and paying off past loans from European nations drastically reduced the island's available cash. All the while the U. S. embargo from 1962 till today easily registers as the longest and cruelest embargo ever imposed by a strong nation against a weak nation. Quite aware of such a debilitating perfect storm confronting Cuba, on Nov. 9th-2017 Rubio and Trump -- not so unlike hovering Buzzards observing a dying potential meal down below -- issued 180 additional enhancements to the Embargo, obviously designed to strangle Cuba with economic sanctions opposed by the rest of the brave, free-thinking world.
      And meanwhile, while the U. S. is afraid of BIG China and Vietnam, its claws still encircle LITTLE Cuba. All the while, American citizens are supposed to be too ignorant or too afraid to be ashamed of the image depicted above, an image that condemned the United States of America by a 191-to-ZERO vote among the nations in the United Nations, including America's best but very embarrassed international friends. And of course, the mainstream United States media is too intimidated or too politically correct to mention that the original purpose of the embargo in 1962 was created to, according to de-classified U. S. documents, starve, deprive and make miserable the lives of Cubans on the island to induce them to rise up and overthrow their revolutionary government. It hasn't happened because, apparently, too many Cubans on the island remember the brutal U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship. But...yes...since 1962 the embargo has been desperately trying to starve, deprive and make miserable the lives of Cubans on the island while, at the same time, serving the revenge, economic, and political motives of two generations of Cuban-American Counter Revolutionaries in Miami and in the U. S. Congress, like Marco Rubio.   
      Meanwhile, the updated photo above reveals the cowardice and hypocrisy that vividly contrasts an America that is afraid of BIG China & Vietnam with an America that pounds LITTLE Cuba to sate the revenge, economic, and political desires of a handful of Counter Revolutionaries, from Jorge Mas Canosa beginning in 1959 till Marco Rubio today. The young Vietnamese woman above, whose mother was probably a do-or-die guerrilla fighter against United States soldiers, is today a tourist guide in flourishing Communist Vietnam. As noted, prime tourist attractions today in Vietnam are the underground tunnels that saturated the nation and helped win the Vietnam War despite being the world's most-bombed country. The Vietnamese woman above, as a tourist guide, is showing American tourists one of those tunnels and explaining how they were camouflaged. While North Vietnam, as well as China in the Korean War, bloodied America in two historic wars, the very unified Communist Vietnam today as well as the forever united Communist China today are Super-beloved American trading partners. Meanwhile, from the 1950s till today LITTLE Cuba, which the U. S. is not afraid of, is still being unmercifully and shamefully targeted.
So...what is the difference?
      The startling triumph of Fidel Castro's Cuban Revolution in 1959 chased the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship to U. S. soil. First in Miami and then in Washington, thanks to the sycophancy of self-serving entities like the Bush dynasty, the Batistiano-Mafiosi leaders attained far more money and far more political power in the United States than they had ever amassed in Cuba. By the time the George H. W. Bush CIA-Vice Presidential-and-Presidential years ended, Cuban-American billionaires in Miami were the key backers of George W. Bush's two terms as President and Jeb Bush's two terms as Florida's governor...not to mention Jeb's 2016 presidential bid, etc. Now contrast all that with the fact that no overthrown Chinese or Vietnamese dictatorships ever resettled as governments-in-exile entities on U. S. soil. If you make those contrasts, I believe you will understand why today Communist China and Communist Vietnam are major United States trading partners while the United States -- SINCE 1959 -- has tried to either recapture Cuba or starve it to death.
      But despite the weird handshake above, Revolutionary Cuba has  -- after all these decades -- neither  been recaptured nor starved to death. That is truly an amazing fact, considering that two generations of the most vicious Counter Revolutionary Cubans, now epitomized by Marco Rubio, have had the backing of the Superpower U. S. government and the apathy of the propagandized U. S. citizens in their eternal quest to regain control of the pugnacious Caribbean island. In December of 2017, the question becomes: Will the four-handed handshake depicted above between Senator Rubio and President Trump FINALLY spell doom for LITTLE Revolutionary Cuba???
