President Clinton, yielding (once more) to the right, the
Republicans and the gusanos has announced serious measures
to be taken against Cuba in the aftermath of the downing of
two Cuban-CIA sponsored planes by the Cuba Air Force.
Clinton announced that all flights to Cuba carrying tourist
and Cuban visiting Cuba will be suspended. He is proposing
legislation to utilized some of the blocked funds from Cuba
to pay compensation to the families of the pilots. He also
announced new legislation tightening the embargo and isolating
Cuba. He also has called an Emergency Meeting of the UN
Security Council and other countries are being contacted to
be convinced to take similar measures. Clinton also announced
that "Radio Marti" will increase its potency and number of
hours of operation.
This followed the illegal actions of the US government to launch
a search and rescue operation, including the utilization of
warships in Cuba's territorial waters. Meanwhile, hundreds of
gusanos were chanting "Guerra!, Guerra!" in a series of
orchestrated demonstrations in Miami and other places.
It is curious to note that eleven minutes (11 minutes!) after the
planes were downed by a Cuban military jet, the newspapers in
Miami and New York received a press released from "Hermanos al
Rescate" and other counter-revolutioanry organizations in US
territory --- what lead many to think that they knew the planes
were there and were about to be shoot down!)
Buchanan stopped short of calling for a direct invasion when he
declared "We should include in our immediate agenda to overthrow
the Cuban government of Fidel Castro". Dole said similar things.
The two planes shot down by cubans were part of a three plane fleet
of Hermanos Al Rescate! - Brothers to the Rescue is an organization
financed by organizations such as America Air, Mielson, inc. and
other finance enterprises whose links with the CIA are evident.
They repeatedly in the last three years violated Cuban Air space
and, contrary to the US media, were repeatedly warned! They even
received an official warning from the US government, not to cross
the imaginery border with Cuba. Their missions were to dump tons
of counter-revolutionary propaganda and to promote a selective
program of "extracting" Cuban nationals from its territory. They
apparently disguised this activity behind the excuse of patrolling
the ocean in search of "balseros".
Are we confronting a new "Gulf of Tomkin"?
