Mummified leadershipFriday, July 27, 2007 at 15:58 | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Reading AFP’s coverage of the Cuban revolution day yesterday reminded me of a curious piece of news also published yesterday by the CBC: a mummified body of a baby boy was found wrapped in newspapers from 1925 in Toronto. Fidel apparently appears to be mummified as a leader, very much like the Soviet leadership in 1970’ies and 1980’ies. The same goes for the government run by Castro Jr and the communist establishment.
Postponing reforms towards democracy and an open economy is a cruel and unnecessary human experiment on the Cuban people. While I do not tend to agree with the present US administration on many international issues, I could co-sign this statement by US State Department spokesman Sean McCormack:
The only real dialogue he needs is with the Cuban people.
Game over, you lost, turkey!
