Vive la révolution!
Le nouveau conseil des droits de l'homme de l'O.N.U. a comme membre fondateur Cuba, mais pas les Etats-Unis. On peut comprendre que la victime de la plus longue campagne de terrorisme de l'histoire (invisible aux journalistes) exulte... ¡Patria o Muerte! On notera aussi la présence de l'Arabie Saoudite sur le conseil... hmm hmm hmmm.
Today is a particularly symbolic day. Cuba is a founding member of the Human Rights Council and the United States is not. Cuba was elected with the overwhelming support of 135 countries, more than two-thirds of the United Nations General Assembly, while the United States did not even dare to run as a candidate. Cuba relied on the secret vote for the same reasons that the United States was afraid of it.
Cuba’s election epitomizes the victory of principles and truth; it stands as recognition of the value of our resilience. The absence of the United States is the defeat of lies; it is the moral punishment for the haughtiness of an empire.
The election entailed a demanding assessment. Each one got what they deserved. Cuba was rewarded and the United States was punished. Each one had its history and the voting countries were well aware of it.
