The United Nations is a fraud and the United States has the last word there, the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, stated. In the second part of a meeting with intellectuals attending the 20th Havana Book Fair and broadcast on the Cuban television program Roundtable on Wednesday afternoon, Fidel Castro talked about Washington's influence in the UN.
The revolutionary leader stated that when a person heading the UN or any of its agencies does not respond to the US administration's interests, that person is removed.
The most recent UN vote on a resolution condemning the US economic, trade and financial blockade on Cuba condemned the existence of that siege, but Washington ignores it, he noted.
"For me, the stances taken by governments and the courage needed to do are valuable; the European countries gave explanations for their votes after opposing the blockade," Fidel Castro stressed.
He stated that the United Nations is worthless if it cannot even say that what the United States is doing is illegal and genocidal, when the country that produces the most food and is closest to Cuba puts so many obstacles to trade with the island.
The United States claims that Cuba is a terrorist country, but no American has ever been killed by Cuba as the result of a bomb, and there has never been a single case of torture.
Fidel Castro referred to moments of the revolutionary struggle in Cuba and recalled crimes committed by the U.S. government in Latin America, such as the murder of Nicaraguan leader Augusto Cesar Sandino.
Intellectuals expressed their opinions and concerns about issues such as the popular uprisings in Middle East, the functionality of international organizations, and imminent dangers for the human race.
JG: Eternal shame on the imperialist U.S. Government! When the United Nations votes 187-3 against the genocidal Cuban blockade, the U.S. turns around and tells those nations: F***K YOU ALL! That shows you how much respect the U.S. government has for "democracy" at the U.N.
The law of the bully is the only law that the U.S. government cares for.
Fidel Castro could have said, but chose not to say it: BARACK OBAMA IS A FRAUD! No different than George W. Bush!
