The right to self-determination

When the thugs of General Fulgencio Batista were torturing and murdering the Cuban people in the 1950's, the United States government never went before any world human rights body to request that he be condemned. The U.S sent him arms so that he could continue his butcheries.

It is very disappointing to see Barack Obama following and promoting the policies of George W. Bush in regards to Cuba.

Who has appointed the U.S. government as nanny and mother-in-law to the world? The United States has no moral authority to chastise Cuba. It is in the U.S. Guantanamo Naval Base where unspeakable human rights violations have occurred.

Cuba has a right to defend its national sovereignty and independence. Hillary's and Obamas covert agents, now euphemistically called contractors, should be kept in Cuban jails.

Has Obama forgotten the vote of 187-3 last October at the United Nations General Assembly, which condemned Bush's and Obama's continuation of the Cuba embargo? There have been no extra-judicial executions since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. It is the United States government who is spending millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars trying to subvert the chosen system of the Cuban people.
