Cuba to present nine counts against Washington in Human Rights Commission

http://english.pravda.ru/mailbox/22/101/399/15162_cuba....

The Cuban delegation is to present nine counts of human rights abuses against the United States of America at the Human Rights Commission in Geneva, Switzerland. Washington has not succeeded in finding any friendly state to do its dirty work against Havana.

Washington's evil and cowardly foreign policy is habitually to use other nations to present motions against states it regards as enemies, such as Fidel Castro's Cuba, or else to use cajoling, bullying and blackmail as diplomatic tools.

In the case of Cuba, the CIA's many attempts to murder Fidel Castro are well documented, as was the invasion at the Bay of Pigs, an attempt to restore the Cuban Mafia to their positions of power and to keep the island as a play-pen for degenerate US officials. The temper tantrum that followed forced the more absurd side of US policy to the fore: Washington likes to go on about freedom of expression and of movement yet US citizens cannot travel freely to Cuba.

Now the USA is unable to find a lackey to present its anti-Cuba policy in the Human Rights Commission in Geneva, while Havana is to present nine counts against George Bush's United States. Cuban Foreign Minister Perez Roque has noted that Washington's theory that human rights abuses in Cuba are a great concern for the international community, have been ridiculed.

2. Never been a big fan of Castro, but I gotta say I
hope he does well on this one!

He should seek some cosponsors for the charges.

3. Odd that
Castro would wait until the second term, surely he had more than plenty abuses during the first.

4. I truly wish the other countries would band together & make these charges
It would make it really difficult for the clued out Americans to ignore it. CHARGE BushCo with war crimes...what will it hurt if you stick together? Arrest him next time he ventures out of the country and put him on trial.
Cuba alone will be ignored.
