I understand the need for diplomatic and economic ties. These countries 
rely to one to degree or another on Chinese and Russian largesse. But 
when Prensa Latina stoops to become an echo chamber for a World News 
Daily journalist--a newspaper that regards Cuba like a rattlesnake views 
a mouse--then something profoundly wrong is going on. It is part of the 
mental rot that has gripped the pro-Qaddafi, pro-Ahmadinejad, and 
pro-Assad left like the kind that occurs in an advanced case of syphilis.
