Russia To USA- How About Cuba Bases For Us!

The imperial presidency of George Bush and his heir apparent, John McCain believes it has the right to impose American will anywhere in the world at anytime and if a nation dares question a US presence near their territory, so much the worse for them. Russia has begun discussions with communist Cuba regarding the possibility of establishing a military base on its soil. According to Cuba expert, Ph il Peters of the Lexington Institute, “Russia is clearly irritated at what it perceives as US meddling in its neighborhood. It seems to be sending a message that if you play on our periphery, we will play in yours.” The Bush decision to establish a missile base in Poland was a provocative action that not only was regarded by Russian authorities as a challenge, but as an insult.

During the Cold War, Cuba received billions of dollars in aid from the Soviet Union, and depended upon such money to maintain its economic vibrancy. Perhaps, Putin talk about bases is merely bluster since Cuba itself might not enjoy becoming caught in a fight between Russia and the United States, but it high lights the danger of a Bush foreign policy that enjoys threatening other nations. We can assume John McCain will soon be shouting, “we are all Cubans!”

    Hey, there are a lot of rogue nations in the Americas, everyone agrees with that.

    A Cuban misile base would be the perfect place to protect Russia from them.

    I enjoy your ironic comment. How about a job in the Bush administration?

    Thank you, and no thanks, I find it hard to stay sane as it is.

    Re: The Bush crime syndicates worst nightmare – barbarians at our gates!

    A Russian ABM site in Venezuela and an X-band radar station in Cuba or Nicaragua by 2012? Can we call it ‘The revenge of the Russian leprechaun – Putin?’ Oh my! Jajaja. :)

    The Russian fleet will be in Venezuela late fall and it will be interesting. With an increasing number of ‘ooops’ over-flights of Venezuela by US ‘recon’ P-3 aircraft from bases in Colombia you can be sure the Messer Chavez ‘sees the writing on the wall’ and will say ‘nyet’ to US imperialism much as Evo Morales is now experiencing with the ‘ejection’ of the smelly Jew…err…err, I mean ‘kosher’ US ambassador, Phillip Goldberg – the Jewish rat that was instrumental in the ‘raping’ of Kosovo from Serbia,’ on his watch while he was US ambassador there – who is now arming Evo’s reichwing enemies, fomenting a civil war and seeking to undermine the Bolivian government because Evo’s gotten too big for his ‘zarape’ and will no longer dance to the Bushwackers ‘pied pipers’ melody dedicated to doomed lemmings.

    Well Obama, you’ve got your work cut out for you my boy – let us hope that Secretary of State Hilliary will be able to keep the ‘barbarians’ pacified – though I don’t think Mededev and Putin have much patience for dealing with ‘thunder thighs,’ jajajaja.
