Sure…I know the Cuban government is in the middle of its latest attempt to manipulate world perception. However this time they will fail miserably in their objective. The actual fact is, despite some understandable pessimism from many exiles who say “here we go again,” the entire governing apparatus is coming unraveled. Public transportation has ceased to function. The little bit of food available is rotten and expensive. Tonight will be yet another set back for Raul and his gang when several million Americans get a good look on 20/20 of the real Cuban health care reserved for the vast majority of regular Cubans. These American witnesses to the disgusting Cuban excuse for health care will be forever scarred by what they see. They will never again think favorably of Raul’s pseudo government. The rose will be off the bloom.
The people of Cuba, the majority of people, each day openly discuss the future of Cuba. They want democracy. They want a decent living standard. They want to be able to speak their minds especially about bad government. They do this each day rather than work to produce more for Raul. They do this right in front of Raul’s police who dutifully report back to their boss. So what? Raul can’t do a thing about this wave of discussion about his misgovernment because it is virtually everybody doing the complaining now. He can’t jail and torture his way out of this one, guys and dolls! So he continues with his lame attempt to Fidel ghost write himself out of trouble even appearing to contradict his own brother about economic policy. But he’s just buying time and whistling Dixie. The reason it won’t work is at the end of the day the Cuban people will still be saying, “Where’s the beef?” And at the other end of the spectrum they’ll be asking, “Where’s the toilet paper?”
I can assure you all this much amigos. Raul’s government is only one more catastrophe away from certain death. And the top ten possibilities are:
2. Mass Cuban exodus towards Florida followed by U.S. intervention
3. Mass Cuban exodus towards Guantañamo followed by U.S. intervention
4. Plague from accidentally released germ from Cuban germ warfare lab
5. Raul’s untimely death leaving a power vacuum
6. Food riots that spin out of control
7. Loss of free Venezuelan oil
8. Sabotage of key infrastructure
10. All of the above
Clearly, this government has held nothing in reserve for a rainy day and is even bragging recently about how many great new armaments they have been manufacturing. Let Cubans try to eat them to fill their stomachs. No…the only thing Raul’s government still has plenty of is lies and useless rhetoric. It is still less filling with no taste. So cheer up Cubanos! The end of our nightmare is near.
