"It seems incredible that in this day and age, the Republican candidate, honored as a hero, should have become an instrument of that [Miami] mafia. No one who has any respect for himself would be guilty of so grave an ethical offense." — Fidel Castro, "Reflections of the Comandante," Granma, February 12, 2008
Which do you prefer? An instrument of the Miami "mafia" or an instrument of Fidel Castro? Never in 49 years has Fidel Castro had more at stake in a U.S. election than he does now. If Obama is elected he might just find the will to live to see the consummation of his life's work. Killing an American president didn't do much for him, destroying another one only turned that president into a lapdog after he left office, and blackmailing a third only succeeded in getting the U.S. to implement the "Wet Foot/Dry Foot" policy.
With Barack Obama, Fidel will finally be in a position to dictate American policy towards Cuba. Not that Obama is himself a mole (that remains to be shown), but he is surrounded by moles, including Greg Craig, Obama's "Czar on Cuba." Craig, of course, is the lawyer who represented the Castro regime in the Elián case and provided his own home as a "safehouse" after Elián's kidnapping at gunpoint. Of course, Fidel Castro has many allies in the media to conceal his co-opting of the Obama campaign. We have seen this in the muted coverage of the Che-Obama affaire.
In view of these facts, any Cuban exile, Cuban-American or "American-Cuban" who supports Obama or dumps on McCain (which is the same thing) is guilty of the crime of lese-patrie, whether his primary allegiance is to Cuba or the U.S.
