Cuba Fears the U.S.
Cuba says it's the United States' fault for the news blackout on Fidel Castro's condition. Even with U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and no sign from President Bush that American troops would take part in any operation in Lebanon National assembly speaker Ricardo Alarcon still fears the "Yanqui" crossing south from Florida and taking things over.
It's the typical Communist Cuban way: where there are problems blame the Americans. It's kept Castro's prison island safely in his hands for over 40 years. Why mess with a good thing?
You want to see a real threat from the U.S.? Let see an Indian casino open up in Havana along with a Dodge dealership. No, scratch that, a Kia dealership. One of those Korean buckets of bolts would seem like a luxury to those who've been jury-rigging their cars for decades.
