He also said that in Cuba there are no dissidents, only paid US mercenaries. He said it in public, in the presence of the Foreign Minister of Spain, one Moratinos, who didn't say a word in rebuttal. It's so nice to have friends you can count on, isn't it? Nice for the Castro regime, I mean.

He looks like he has an IQ of 70 or so. But yes, he will do and say whatever he's told without hesitation or question, and generally behave like an obnoxious thug on command. What a prize specimen, indeed.

He also said at the UN that Cuba was willing to renounce its sovereignty and its flag to become part of a confederation with Venezuela and other Latin American countries.

I wonder if they played this tidbit on Cuban television. I'd like to know what the Cubans think about this little piece of information.
