When friends visit

Will he or won’t he?

Brazilian president Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva arrives in Havana today for a brief visit – his first since 2003.

According to media
reports, Mr da Silva will meet the “provisional” president, Raul Castro, and other senior officials, sign the customary “trade agreements” and offer the Castro regime credits worth an estimated USD 1 billion.

But the big question is whether the Brazilian head of state will get to meet the ailing Fidel Castro, who has not been since in public for more than 18 months.

We shall see.

By now, getting an audience with Fidel Castro is probably not much different from being shown a vegetable garden.

The main thing is that, for what must be the zillionth time, Cuba's Latin American "brothers" are reaffirming their steadfast support for the Stalinist totalitarian regime that has ruined Cuba and caused endless, incalculable misery and suffering to its people for nearly half a century.

With brothers like these, who needs pestilence, plagues or enemies?
