Reflections by Comrade Fidel
THE TARIFFED LIE
What moved me to write was the fact that very serious events will be happening very soon. In our times, our species hardly spend ten or fifteen years without facing a true risk of disappearing. Neither Obama nor anybody else could ensure otherwise. I say this from a realistic perspective, since only the truth could offer to us a little more wellbeing and a breath of hope. We have come of age when it comes to knowledge. We have no right to deceive others or ourselves.
The overwhelming majority of the public opinion knows enough about the new risk ahead.
It is not simply that the cruise missiles
are pointing to some military targets in
Everybody knows that Bashar Al-Assad was not a politician. He studied medicine, graduated in 1988 and specialized in ophthalmology. He took up a political role after his father, Hafez Al-Assad, died in 2000 and after the accidental death of one brother, before he took that post.
All NATO members, which are unconditional
allies of the
Furthermore, it has been asserted that by the year 2040, that is, within hardly 27 years, many of the tasks that are nowadays performed by the police, such as fining, among others, will be done by robots. Could the readers figure out how difficult will it be to argue with a robot that is able to make millions of calculations per minute. This was in fact something unimaginable some years ago.
Just a few hours ago, on Monday, August 26, some reports published by certain classical news agencies, well known for the sophisticated services they have paid to the United States, began to disseminate the information that Edward Snowden had had to stay in Russia because Cuba had yielded to US pressures.
I do not know if somebody somewhere had told
Snowden anything or not, because that is not my job. I read what I can about news, opinions and the
books that are published in the world. I
admire the courageous and fair statements made by Snowden, with which, in my
opinion, he paid a service to the world, since he revealed the abhorrently
dishonest policy implemented by the powerful empire, which tells lies to and
deceives the entire world. However, what I would not agree with is for someone,
no matter his or her merits, to be speaking on behalf on
The tariffed lie. Who asserts it? The Russian newspaper “Kommersant”. What is this libel? According to Reuters, the newspaper quotes some sources close to the US State Department: “the reason was that, at the last minute, the Cuban authorities had told officials to stop Snowden from boarding the Aeroflot flight.”
According to the newspaper, “[…] Snowden
spent a couple of days at the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong where he declared
his intention of flying to Latin America via
If I wanted I could speak about these issues which I know very well.
Today I watched with special interest the
images of the President of the
I was impressed by some of the visual images of the Venezuelan President during the visit he paid to the ship. One of them showed the range of movement of its numerous radars, capable of monitoring the operational activities of the ship under any circumstances.
Besides, I made an inquiry about the activities of the mercenary newspaper “Kommersant”. In its times it was one of the most perverse media to the service of the counterrevolutionary extreme right, which delights in seeing how the conservative and servile government of London is sending its bombers to an airbase in Cyprus, where they are ready to launch their bombs over the patriotic forces of the heroic Syria, while in Egypt, considered to be the heart of the Arab world, thousands of persons are being murdered by the authors of a gross coup d’etat.
It is against this backdrop that the naval and air means of the empire are getting ready to unleash genocide against the Arab peoples.
It is absolutely obvious that the
Our biggest mistake has been not having been able to learn much more in much less time.
