THE KETTLE RESPONDS TO THE POT
I know Cuba has a whole boatload of problems, but it is safe to say that it’s biggest by far is that it is in close proximity to the U.S. Still, I have a deep admiration for Cuban moxie, a feeling that grows exponentially everytime I learn more about Cuba’s history of fending off the hostile advances of it’s belligerent, often imperialistic northern neighbor.
When I read a story about the U.S. mission in Cuba putting up a ‘Christmas’ display ‘honoring’ a number of jailed Cuban dissidents, I couldn’t help but think of Camp X-Ray at Guantanamo. I also reckoned that I was witnessing yet another example of U.S. hypocrisy that would make a Pharisee blush.
Furthermore, I wondered what the Cubans would do to respond, other than make their disdain for the display publicly known. I read my answer this morning:
