The Three Stooges

It is now official - Moe, Larry and Curly have returned: I give you Evo, Fidel and Chavez! With Evo now publicly announcing his alignment at the side of the other two stooges, as if this was any surprise to us. And of course, suppport from Venezuela has already been declared as they continue to spew their hate for freedom as well as capitalism "neo-liberal" economic models, and as they aid each other in nationalizing the private companies that "exploit" their resources. Taken right out of Castro's manual. You can read more about Evo, his "lucha anti-imperialista" and his trips here. And now that they feel they are not alone, they are thinking they are unstoppable. Babalu has a great article on how Castro is strengthening his ties wit Iran's president - the same president the rest of the world doesn't want to get any plutonium; the same anti-Semitic president that has no qualms in stating that he wants Israel to disappear, that the Holocaust never happened and that Israel was created to continue the genocide started by Europe. Read all about Castro and Mahmud here.

At the same time, plans are underway to undermine Castro's continued jamming of the TV Marti and Radio signal, in order to penetrate the TV sets of Cubans in Cuba - thus allowing them access to freedom of information. The whole story is here. Though it seems, that Cubans still know things are better on the other side, as 18 rafters arrived in Mexico today. As my friend Babalu says, the rafts only go one way - OUT OF CUBA.
