Diplomatic news

Another year, another diplomatic "victory" for the Castro regime at the United Nations.

Just as expected, international media are reporting that UN members overwhelmingly voted in favour of a motion calling on the United States to lift its trade and commercial embargo, which has been in place since 1962.

This time around, 184 member countries voted in favour of the motion, with four voting against: the US, Israel and the Pacific island nations of Palau and the Marshall Islands. Micronesia abstained.

This is the 16th year in a row such a non-binding motion has been carried by the world body.

They will be celebrating in Havana. Again.

It is quite possible to do the wrong thing for the right reasons, to be mistaken without realizing it, to analyze a situation incorrectly and thus act based on a false premise. But never mind; it's a moot point anyhow.
