Yeah, let's put sanctions similar to the ones on Apartheid South Africa on the country that played by far one of the biggest roles in ending the fascist Apartheid government, far more then the United States ever did.


Are you completely for real?

I am very serious and should their be another Cuban Balsero refugee crisis, on boats, rafts and anything that floats across shark infested waters, it will be considered an act of war by President Trump, with a naval blockade of Cuba, nothing goes in, nothing goes out until the Cuban regime falls from power from within and without.

Cubans are beginning to leave Cuba on boats, rafts, and anything that floats again, their are thousands of Cubans immigrants all over Central America, Mexico and some in South America who emigrate through third nations, it is being called the Cuban Caravan.

Just because they opposed the Apartheid government does not make them good. Bad people can occasionally do good things for bad reasons.

Case in point, Hitler’s anti-smoking ideas.

I never said they couldn't, only that the comparison was odious and foolish in the extreme, the two are nothing alike.

Indeed, and it would be moronic in the extreme to equate modern democratic systems with Hitler's Germany on the basis of them sharing that commonality.

El Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) informa que este día se realizó el retorno de 204 personas extranjeras a su país de origen; la mayoría eran familias que viajaban con menores de edad. Las más de 200 personas de nacionalidad hondureña tenían una condición de estancia irregular en México. El traslado vía aérea se realizó de Minatitlán, Veracruz, a San Pedro Sula, Honduras, en acuerdo con las autoridades del gobierno hondureño, cumpliendo con las normas y procedimientos migratorios vigentes.

Very normal.

Lmao nice alternative facts. Maduro was handpicked by Chavez to succeed him. The only democratically elected part of the Venezuelan government left is their legislature which Maduro stripped of all power.

Maduro was handpicked by Chavez to succeed him, Raúl was handpicked by Fidel to succeed him, Diaz-Canel was handpicked by Raúl to succeed him, and Raúl still rules.

Hm...
The electoral conduct has been described as being fraudulent,[100] with the call for an election by the pro-government Constituent National Assembly being declared unconstitutional in the first place, especially when the body moved the election date ahead from December to April.[101] The National Electoral Council (CNE), which is charged with overseeing elections in Venezuela, is also controlled by Maduro sympathizers.[101] The Bolivarian government has also been accused of excluding opposition candidates, handpicking candidates, voter intimidation, vote buying, and offering food to those who vote for President Maduro.[100][101] No recognized electoral observers were reported to be present for the elections.[101]

The new sanctions on Cuba will do nothing to change its behavior toward the Maduro regime or the situation in Venezuela. Cuba has withstood US sanctions for nearly 60 years and the government is still completely in power. This latest move seems to be "any stick to beat a dog" wrt the Maduro regime and Havana. If it provides one more applause line at the next Trump rally it will have fulfulled its purpose as far as the Colluder-in-Chief is concerned.

Meanwhile back in Caracas the sanctions so far in place are doing little to convince the security forces to defect from the Maduro side whilst impoverishing the Venezuelan people. If this administration has nothing more than fighting Maduro to the last Venezuelan baby then its impotence is about to be made plain with disastrous effects on US prestige and influence in its own backyard. As noted elsewhere all this is a result of going off half-cocked with no Plan B or regard for the real damage a narcissistic buffoon can do and is doing to the nation's interests overseas as well as domestically.

What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
