Permit me to give you a heads up of an impending crisis and the best way to deal with it. I am the great grandson of the first president of Cuba. Cuba's economy is sinking fast because the only area where they were making money was tourism and that is now in steep decline due to a number of factors. No medicine has been available for a number of years except on the black market. Food availability and quality are now declining as well. Guillermo Farinas, a well know dissident in Cuba, told me by phone several weeks ago that the rice and other food available was all full of mold. Most live on a bit of bread and sugar water with a vegetable if lucky.
To sum up millions of Cubans are slowly starving and historically when that turns to desperation people do one of two things - revolt or move to the food. The nearest supply of food is 90 miles away. What are you going to do if an army of 100,000 desperate hungry Cubans head our way to save themselves from starvation?
We are in an election year where controlling immigration is the key issue. The Castro regime has done this before and they always empty the jail of criminals and release the mental patients too on our shores. In effect they release a population bomb on America. This act of war must be met militarily. Unless you want video on CNN of cruel America trying to send desperate Cuban families back to Cuba to die, which will cause countless women and infants to drown in the Straits as they resist, an alternative approach must be taken this time. Cruise ships must be used to gather up these refugees while the US military gives the no fly orders to Cuba regarding the Isle of Pines. The US Marines will storm the Isle of Pines, secure it and prepare the way for these refugees who will be transported on those ocean liners and other boats. Then we will establish a free part of Cuba on this island where these and future Cubans longing to be free can come instead of always imposing on America. The exile population is already on board with this concept. There are millions of dollars already waiting to spend establishing this Caribbean version of Taiwan.
This is a win win situation for all with the exception of the Castro boys of course. But for now I ask that you all contemplate what you will do if 100,000 begin heading our way right before an election. From my contacts on the island I am almost positive that the Cuban military will not even fire a shot to stop this maneuver. However, you leaders on Capital Hill should be ready, ahead of this crisis that could very well happen this fall or winter. Here's a dirty secret which the world ignores. There are gulags on the Isle of Pines. Once the world sees US Marines freeing these poor wretched humans being starved and abused to death in these death camps we will be universally praised for this military action. Some have suggested just going into Cuba proper militarily but this is unwise. You have a core of dead enders who will fight to the death. They might lob scuds into Miami. So it must be made clear from the start of this crisis that we are doing this for humanitarian reasons, we are only going to take the Isle of Pines so Cubans can live in that part of Cuba where they can self govern themselves, that we will not go into Cuba proper militarily unless we are met with resistance from the Cuban government and in that scenario we will mete out total annihilation of their military. I don't believe we will have to fire a shot though. The regime is in disarray now as it is.
Please consider these issues and how they may play out and effect your political future. The exile population and I are at your disposal to help construct appropriate legislation and provisions to avert this impending crisis before it is unleashed on America's shores. The scenario which I have warned you of is much more likely to occur and in the near term than say global warming so you ought to get out ahead of the wave. Please feel free to contact us.
