There have been signs for a while that Cuba is retreating on internationalism. Even in its most beleaguered periods, that was fundamental to Cuba. Its near-silence during Israel’s US-financed Operation Ethnic Cleansing in Gaza last year & its call for a bantustate solution signal that retreat big time.
Now Cuban president Raul Castro has exonerated Obama from culpability in crimes & aggression against Cuba & other Latin American countries. He actually uttered: “I want to apologize to President Obama because he doesn’t have anything to do with all of that.” But Senor Castro, what about Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, Gaza?
