Diplomatic Pauch

In the wake of the stench of sulfur that Chavez left in the Bella Center, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Eduardo Rodríguez Parrilla called U.S. President Barack Obama:

an "imperial and arrogant" liar Monday for his conduct at the U.N. climate conference, a reflection of the communist island's increasingly fiery verbal attacks on the U.S. government.
One of the many touted benefits of the perpetual “revolution” which the Cubans have always pimped was that they somehow magically eliminated all inequality and racism from the island. Which makes Rodriguez’ further comments somewhat more interesting to those not familiar with Communism, where you NEVER actually get what’s on the jar’s label.
Last week, the elder Castro, who stepped down as head of state in February 2008, wrote that Washington is looking to solidify its control over Latin America and that Obama's "friendly smile and African-American face" hide his government's sinister true intentions for the region.

Raul Castro over the weekend mentioned recent war games Cuba conducted to prepare for a U.S. invasion
So color blind, indeed that a portrait of their government looks like a “mafia” social club: one guy who looks like he might vaguely be Indian, 3 women, and a bunch herpetic looking old white men of Iberian origin with a stunning similarity to one another – truly – the portrait of the Caribbean if there ever was one.

You can virtually smell the diversity, which, like the university faculty of many of the social sciences, has about the same uniformity of thought.
