Cuba: intervene this

A report on Wednesday will recommend that the US set up an $80m fund to assist democracy in Cuba in the event of Fidel Castro’s death, according to the London Independent. The president of the Cuban parliament Ricardo Alarcon called the plan, penned by George Bush’s Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba, an act of war. “They admit to a secret plan to overthrow another government,” he said. “What on earth could the secret part say when the public part violates all kinds of international law.” Quite. SBC has learned that as part of the democracy plans Sunni insurgents will be imported from Iraq to start an uprising and Shia suicide bombers invited to try Havana out for size. Perhaps the US should first consider introducing democracy to the one corner of the Cuban island it actually controls: Guantanamo Bay.
