The United Nations General Assembly voted 187 to 3 to condemn the 47 year-old US trade embargo with the island of Cuba. This bully tactic by the US has only hurt the Cuban people and has driven them so far backwards that to a Cuban a trip to North Korea would be considered a luxury vacation. The US has lost all international support for its embargo; only Israel and Palau voted with the US which tattoos both those nations with the scarlet letter "T" for toady.

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos' meeting with Raul Castro resulted in the surprise release from prison of Cuban dissident and outspoken government critic Nelson Agular. Agular expressed shock at being released almost 7 years before his prison sentence was supposed to end. He called on the Castro Brothers to "recognize its errors and little by little, if they can't do it all at once, to continue freeing the prisoners of conscience."

I say it's the removal of another brick in the wall. Let's keep on talking everybody.

"Nobel Peace Prize major step towards normalization with Cuba"

President Obama received this year's Nobel Peace Prize for his past and future efforts to bring about world peace. No way can he ignore Cuba and the current trade embargo after that kind of buildup and press. A status quo between the two nations would only tarnish the award. Look for a historical announcement any day.

"Distortion...Distraction...Deception"

I just heard Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, use crafty alliteration to describe resistance to the proposed health care fix... "distortion, distraction and deception". Being a words-smith I plan on borrowing it in my future writings.

I bring this to your attention because there's little to discuss on the Cuba front at this time. I say this with the firm belief that, for the present, silence is golden. To me this silence means that both parties are engaged in serious discussions instead of slinging hyperboles. We should patiently wait for what I expect to be a major announcement of a mutual agreement within the near future.
