Dime con quien andas ...

It's nice to see the Castro regime remaining loyal to its Chinese Communist friends. And those nice, cuddly North Koreans Communists, too ...

While much of the rest of the world has been horrified at the way in which the Chinese authorities have quashed protests in Tibet in recent days, Havana has issued a statement supporting Beijing.

The Castros are blaming the Dalai Lama and his supporters for fostering what is described as a "malicious media campaign" against poor, defenceless China.

According to this statement published in the official Cuban media, the "revolutionary" government is firmly opposed to "any attempt to meddle in China’s internal affairs, or to attack its sovereignty and territorial integrity".

And the Cubans will not put up with any talk of an Olympic boycott, claiming calls for such a protest are an effort "aimed at undermining this noble undertaking."

At last count, more than 100 Tibetans had died during the protests against Chinese rule.

Meanwhile, a delegation from the Federation of Cuban Women, the Communist Party-controlled organisation that is supposed to represent the views and aspirations of Cuban women but is really just another mouthpiece for the Castro brothers, is visiting that beacon of democracy and openness, North Korea.

The delegation, headed by Surina Acosta, who is a member of the Council of State, is meeting with their North Korean counterparts, which is laughably known as the Korean Democratic Women's Union.
