The far left has had a temper tantrum over an alleged Cuban terrorist. First off Cuba does not have an independent judiciary. Screaming ranting show trials ala the Slansky fiasco are the norm. Secondly, Cuba practices genuine torture that is far more severe than panties on the head and naked twister at Abu Gharib. Sending a person back to face genuine torture is inhuman. Third of all Castro has been knowingly harboring a notorious cop killer for two decades. Lastly Fidel dumped over one thousand convicted criminals in the USA in the Marielito period. These are serious criminals facing lifetime imprisonment for crimes commited in the USA. Of course the left venerates this convicted Cop Killer and if she were returned the members of the Commie Odessa network that helped her get to Cuba would have to be tried.
We also have lefties blaming the Cuban economy on the rest of the boycott. As the entire rest of the world ignored this boycott this excuse just doesn't work. Castro has had four decades to build new tradding partners and failed. Moreover, he inherited a vibrant economy and destroyed it. Blaming Batista after four decades of authoritarian rule also doesn't cut it.
The arrogance of Commies is they seem to think Potemkin Village tours are more authentic than the experiences of people whose relatives are still in Cuba. Moreover,
the people of Union City and Miami are quite free to state their opinions unlike their relatives who live under commie block patrols.
The reality is that a GITMO prisoner enjoys more freedom and liberty and a better standard of living than the vast majority of Cubans. The prisoners in GITMO do eat better than many Americans, including our troops. The prisoners in GITMO also have accsess to legal counsel and commie lawyers. The prisoners in GITMO are in air conditioned cells. The prisoners in GITMO are free to pray, to take out books from the library and get free health care.
If Cuban were ever shown a movie about the conditions the prisoners in GITMO lived under they would demand assylum. However, as Cuba is a police state with state controlled media this is unlikely.
Communists excell only in the creation of excuses and needless suffering.
