BDS – Bush Derangement Syndrome – has spread to our south. All the way to the halls of the dictatorship in Havana. raul now says he won’t talk to the United States until the Bush administration is gone. The Associated Press interviewed Jorge Alberto Bolanos Suarez, head of the Cuban Interest Section in Washington.
In an interview with The Associated Press, he said Cuban offers for dialogue with the United States made by Castro’s brother, Raul, after he took day-to-day control of the government in 2006 were not intended for the Bush administration, which staunchly supports the nearly 46-year-old U.S. economic embargo of Cuba that was designed to choke off funds to the Castro government in an effort to force a change in the communist system there.
“When Raul spoke about it he was not referring to the present administration,” Bolanos said. “He was speaking clearly that after the U.S. elections, the new (U.S.) government should take a position with regard to Cuba.
Once again, the self-centered attitude of the dictatorship is evident. What might be best for the Cuban people never enters raul’s mind.
