After Barack Obama gave it all away for nothing in return, Cuba’s vile dictator Raul Castro is blaming the U.S. for the suffering of the Cuban people and he’s demanding reparations. The only thing Barack Obama will get, the one thing no one else wants is GITMO returned to Cuba.
In his first U.N. speech, Raul harshly criticized the U.S. After attacking the U.S. for more than 15 minutes, he outlined his conditions for normalized relations which can only seek to benefit him, not his people and not the U.S.
“After 56 years in which the Cuban people put up a heroic and selfless resistance, diplomatic relations have been re-established between Cuba and the United States of America,” he said. “Now a long and complex process begins towards the normalization of relations.”
“But this will only be achieved with the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba; the return to our country of the territory illegally occupied by the Guantanamo naval base; the cessation of radio and TV broadcasts and of subversive and destabilizing programs against the island; and when our people are compensation for the human and economic damages they still endure.”
Notice how he suddenly wants GITMO back?
He touted his close relationship with the communist dictator of Venezuela and blamed the U.S. for the refugees and other migrants flooding Europe, the crisis in the Middle East, and poverty in Africa.
This is what happens when the leader of the U.S. is weak.
Prior to Castro’s speech, Obama met with Raul and Obama was the only one seen laughing and smiling.
Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker is going to visit Cuba to promote actions the administration has taken unilaterally to ease restrictions on the communist country.
Obama is even considering abstaining from voting on an anti-embargo resolution in the U.N.
Rubio warned the administration such a move could hinder future State Department nominations in the Senate. He requested Obama to follow U.S. law and warned that if he didn’t, he’d send a terrible message to the tyrants of the world.
Castro made a fool of Obama at the U. N. and, in fact, the only time Obama received applause during his 42 minute speech was when he said he would do what he could to get the embargo lifted.
