An HONEST Article About Cuba

Yes, But Rare Indeed!!!
  This photo was taken by renowned Cuban photographer Jamil Lage and was used to illustrate the best international or American article this week about Cuba...and perhaps the most honest one. The article has a two-sentence title: "THE INTERNET IS WIDELY ACCESSIBLE IN CUBA. WHY IS THE U. S. INSISTING IT ISN'T." Well, of course, since 1959 the U. S. government and the intimidated U. S. media have not exactly been in the business of telling the truth about Cuba, instead leaving the Cuban narratives to the Batistiano extremists who fled the victorious Cuban Revolution for the sanctuary of U. S. soil beginning in the wee hours of January 1, 1959. The interesting article underlined in pink above is written by a notable journalist-author who was born in LA but has traveled the world and writes for CBS, PBS, the Australian Broadcast Corporation, and many of the world's best print sources.
        The aforementioned article this week was written by Reese Erlich and it bears repeating: "THE INTERNET IS WIDELY ACCESSIBLE IN CUBA. WHY IS THE U. S. INSISTING IT ISN'T." Like Mr. Ehrlich, I believe that American citizens, considering how many of their tax dollars are being used daily to recapture Cuba, have a right to know that the Internet is widely accessible in Cuba and, furthermore, American citizens also have the right to know why neither the U. S. government nor the U. S. media won't let them know about such things. That's why I suggest Americans dial up this article to know at least this bit of truth about arguably the Caribbean's most beautiful island and certainly its largest and most fascinating sovereign nation. All this is especially true and timely in February of 2020 as America's Little Havana-led President Donald Trump is vowing to once-and-for-all destroy Revolutionary Cuba on behalf of a handful of extremist Counter Revolutionary Cubans in Miami and in the United States Congress.
     According to Wikipedia, Reese Erlich "visited Cuba for the first time in 1968, which led to a continuing interest in that country." Among Mr. Erlich's best-selling books is: "Dateline Havana: The Real Story of U. S. Policy and the Future of Cuba." So if Reese Erlich knows enough to write a best-selling book about those two topics, surely his cogently researched article this week about why the U. S. "insists" Cuba, which now is "widely" connected to the Internet, is not connected to the Internet is an INTERESTING article. After all, Mr. Urlich is unlike most of the U. S. "journalists" who write {or propagandize} about Cuba but have never been to Cuba and therefore know nothing about the island and its people. Reese Erlich, on the other hand, writes about Cuba and its people FROM Cuba and he obviously is neither too afraid to publish the truth about Cuba nor is he paid to publish lies about Cuba.
     The book "Dateline Havana: The Real Story of U. S. Policy and the Future of Cuba" was written by Reese Erlich.
     And this week's best article about Cuba was written by Reese Erlich, and it has a two-sentence title: "THE INTERNET IS WIDELY ACCESSIBLE IN CUBA. WHY IS THE U. S. INSISTING IT ISN'T."
Uh...Cubans know the Internet too.
