The elite ruling classes of Yankee imperialism are desperate for making progress in their never ending efforts to replace Cuban Socialism with the dog-eat-dog capitalism of General Fulgencio Batista. If you believe the pronouncements of the imperialists when they say that they are merely trying to bring “democracy” and “freedom” to the Caribbean island you are incredibly stupid and/or gullible. It is all about money and control. The Yankees want to be able to “rule” Cuba again and to restart the exploitative political and economic processes which took place in the island from 1902 to 1958, the era of the so-called Neo-Republic.
The economic and financial embargo/blockade against Cuba, instituted by president John F. Kennedy in 1960, had two concrete aims:
1) To starve the Cuban people into submission.
2) To cause the overthrow of the Cuban revolutionary government which took power on January First, 1959.
On both areas the embargo has been a total and monumental failure. Cuba will continue to resist the evil and genocidal policies of the Yankee imperialists. They are not about to let corrupt foreigners steal their land from under their feet.
But this week the imperialist announced a new “policy.” They will continue the embargo/blockade in the areas where it suits their failed purposes, but now they say that they will allow American businesses to export communications software and services to the island. It would allow the Yankee imperialist to communicate better with their covert and overt mercenaries which they employ, pay and direct inside the island.
Do they really think that the Cuban government is going to allow that violation of Cuba's national sovereignty and independence? How naive can the Yankees be?
It may be convenient, but it is rather doubtful that the Cuban government will allow the exports which the Yankee imperialists are trying to implement.
Neither Google, Facebook or Twitter are going to succeed where the American government has failed.
Below is part of the document issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) last week:
On April 13, 2009, the President [Barack H. Obama] stated that the promotion of democracy and human rights in Cuba is in the national interest of the United States and is a key component of U.S. foreign policy in the Americas.
The President announced an initiative to pursue these goals by, among other things, increasing the flow of information to the Cuban people.
Consistent with that initiative, OFAC is adding new § 515.578 to the CACR to authorize the exportation from the United States or by persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction to persons in Cuba of certain services incident to the exchange of personal communications over the Internet, such as instant messaging, chat and email, social networking, sharing of photos and movies, web browsing, and blogging.
To qualify for this authorization, the services must be publicly available at no cost to the user.
New § 515.578 does not authorize the direct or indirect exportation of services with knowledge or reason to know that such services are intended for a prohibited official of the Government of Cuba, as defined in § 515.337 of the CACR, or a prohibited member of the Cuban Communist Party, as defined in § 515.338.
Barack H. Obama, like his previous ten predecessors, seeks to restore capitalism to the Caribbean island. They also must realize that short of a massive U.S. armed forces invasion of the island, they are bound to fail. The hatred that they have for the Cuban Communist Party is very apparent. However, if you are the Communist Party of China and you are financing the almost 14 Trillion Dollars national debt of the United States, that is a different story.
