The year 2013 will bring with it the inauguration of the 113th U.S. Congress. Newly elected senators and representatives will take their seats and a new batch of bills will be introduced in both chambers for possible consideration by the legislative body. Only those bills which meet with the approval of the ruling elites, i. e. the capitalist Democratic and Republican parties, will be ever approved.
The United States today is a nation that resembles very much the era before the U.S. Civil War. There is a great deal of hatred and divisions.
Progressive Cuba related bills will surely be introduced and it is very doubtful that any of them will be passed. The hatred of the American capitalist ruling circles for socialist Cuba is very similar to the hatred directed against the slavery abolitionists of the 19th century and toward Germany's Jews of the 20th century.
One more time, the United States Congress will probably ignore the call of 188 nations of the world which asked in November for a prompt termination of the genocidal economic and financial blockade directed against the people of Cuba. Cubans in the island are the new Jews, and the Yankee imperialists are the new Nazis of the XXI century.
There is no difference between George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama, they are both 100% capitalists and hate socialist Cuba with a passion. Those two presidents deserve the just condemnation and repudiation of those people who ask that the U.S. behave within the confines of international law. Don't hold your breath expecting that to happen. But the struggle for a better world will continue. No new empire can stop that.
The peoples of the world should consider the expulsion of the United States from the United Nations.
The ruling USA capitalists elites call the Cuba blockade merely an embargo. They are such good comedians!
