George Bush Hosts Bloggers Summit

As a lame duck president what could George Bush do to advance Cuban freedom in the last 40 days of his administration?

Everything that he hasn't done in the last 8 years.

What is he actually going to do?

Meet with Val Prieto and other bloggers against totalitarianism to highlight the importance of their work.

What the hell?

The importance of their work?

Is this guy kidding, delusional, or what?

He is the president of the United States and he wants to confab with bloggers about the prospects for freedom in their respective countries?

Nothing that a blogger can do individually or all bloggers as a group to advance the cause of freedom in the world can compare even remotely to the potential for good, largely unexercised, which Bush might have brought to bear on behalf of the world's oppressed.

Eight years of sounding off from his bully pulpit about human rights in other countries while endeavoring to curtail them here, with star chambers, renderings, water boarding and indefinite sentences, has resulted in the U.S. losing the moral high ground in a contest where it was always outnumbered but never discredited. On George Bush's watch, the U.N. Human Rights Commission, in Geneva, which had condemned human rights abuses in Cuba throughout the 1980s and 1990s, was abolished and replaced with a Human Rights Council, controlled by the world's worst abusers of human rights, on whose itinerary Cuba has not and will never appear except as an aggrieved party. In response to being outmaneuvered by the world's totalitarians, Bush quit the game, that is, he withdrew the U.S. from the new sham Council rather than contest its actions or at least protest its hypocrisy. Perhaps this retreat was inevitable or even prudent under the circumstances. The glass house was more important than casting stones at freedom's enemies.

Jimmy Carter's idea of human rights was to replace authoritarians friendly to the U.S. with totalitarians hostile to it. George Bush's policy was a lot simpler: leave the totalitarians alone (except in Iraq and Afghanistan). It is thanks to Bush's policy of destructive non-engagement that an ideology discredited everywhere else in the world has come to die in Latin America. On his watch and with his blessing Communism finally took root in the Americas by grasping onto its unnurtured democracies and killing them by strangulation. Was democracy a plant of unnatural growth in Latin America or were the weeds left untended till they overran the garden? Not too long ago every country in the region except Cuba was a democracy however imperfect or fragile. Bush's tenure set Latin America back 100 years, politically, socially and economically; and the regression to barbarism is not yet complete and promises greater horrors in the next fours years, when its elected caudillos will not be ignored anymore but encouraged on their path to Socialism (i.e. total annihilation).

And the last minute solution to this and countless other international crises incubated for the last 8 years is -- a Bloggers' Summit!

Part 2: Will Val Prieto Be At Least the Man that Yoani Sánchez Is?

Manuel said: On his watch and with his blessing Communism finally took root in the Americas by grasping onto its unnurtured democracies and killing them by strangulation




One of Manuel's best points of all time. And the reason why i will teach my unborn children to hate Bush. Nearly every American President before Bush did their best to stomp out communism the world over. Yes, even Clinton attempted to remove the last of the communism from Europe, lest they attempt to regenerate, and reach yet again, into Latin America.


But under the neglectful Bush, communism has sprung back to life with a vengence. Cuba's freedom was within grasp, when Fidel stepped down. Bush purposely ignored Cuba's desperate outstreched hands. (Cant have a propereous Cuba, with the impoverished America that Bush created.)


Val be sure to ask Bush:

1) Why wasnt the Cuban-American church invited
2) Why did your Justice Department drag Cuban freedom fighters to anti-Cuban Broward for brutal prosecution and imprisonment
3) Why did you strip away badly needed funds from those organizations that assisted Cuba's push for democracy
4) Why didnt you include Fidel, in the axis of evil, a terrorist who has killed more Americans then all those others combined
5) Why did you disrespect the Cuban community, which gave you this house

Val, Bush's request that you be the voice of Cuba's freedom, proves what Manuel has said all along. America isnt serious about a free Cuba!!



P.S.

How much money did you pocket from the donations to help you with your airline ticket? Jackpot, wasnt it!!

The worst thing of all is he chose hardline bloggers the likes of Val Prieto, to validate his total disregard of Cuba and it's totalitarian goverment.

I wouldn't say democracies are an alien plant to Central and South America. Quite the contrary, in fact. I remember reading the writings of each countries' founding fathers in Spain last semester. It's just they were damn fragile and a weed called Communism (watered by Kasstro & Co. who were planted by us not allowing the elected leader to take office in Cuba and the Soviets' watering) came along and took up all the garden space.
