If we take into consideration the last measures adopted by the US government against Cuba, anyone would think that Cuba is a top priority in the foreign policy agenda of the US administration, which will be over soon.
Last December 31st, on the eve of the celebration of the 62nd anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he had three weeks to decide whether Cuba would be included or not in the list of nations sponsoring terrorism.
On January 1st, when the Cuban people were celebrating to having successfully overcome the fateful world pandemic, and survived hundreds of opportunistic measures adopted by the US government to tighten the blockade and even a failed attempt of a soft coup, the US State Department announced the addition of the Banco Financiero Internacional in their Restricted List of Cuban Companies with which Americans are prohibited to carry out transactions.
As stated by the Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla in his Twitter profile, in addition to strengthen the economic siege, which has not destroyed the Cuban Revolution in 62 years, these measures seek to please the Anti-Cuban minority residing in Florida, which is evident they cannot get over the defeat of current president Donald Trump in the last presidential elections.
To reelect the still president, the Anti-Cuban mafia in Miami, headed by the mastermind behind all these measures against Cuba, Senator Marco Rubio, unleashed a dishonest campaign where they accused the Democrat Party of following a Communist path and being alleged ally of countries like Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua.
President Trump himself traveled to Miami and in an interview with a spokesperson of that mafia in Youtube, he said he was the one to put an end to the Cuban Revolution.
But, Trump did not win the elections, and the Cuban Revolution is still alive despite the skirmish of underclass mercenaries, sabotages, and terrorist actions. And this must have hurt the pride of the Anti-Cuban mafia in Miami if we have in mind that a 62-years-old embarrassment is something really annoying, to say the least.
More than the survival of the Cuban Revolution —thanks to which they make a living by wasting the money of the US taxpayers, their bitterest enemies in Florida— the Anti-Cuban mafia in Miami is frustrated by its everlasting failure. In its fight against Cuba, more sovereign than ever, every year its leaders have only reaffirmed their status of losers and swindlers.
Hence, blind in their frustration and hatred, they have no other resources than embracing the last breath of those who are hanging themselves with their own rope.
