What the Spanish are enabling in Cuba.

Our friend down under, the Cuban-Australian author Luis M. Garcia brings us a story from the Spanish daily El Mundo. It's an interview with the Cuban foreign minster Felipe Perez Roque. In the interview Roque asserts “there are no political prisoners in Cuba. What we have are mercenaries in the pay of the US Government, who want to help entrench the American blockade, even when this hurts Spanish companies.”

Of course they HAVE to be mercenaries because no rational human would ever disagree with their government, especially one as "benevolent" as Cuba's.

It puzzles me that this rhetoric can be printed verbatim without anyone in the media ever challenging it. I guess it shouldn't puzzle me, but it still does.
