Obama Calls for Cuba’s “Independence from Cuban Authorities”
November 3, 2014
In the most up-to-date White House policy on Cuba (1/14/11) the Office of the Press Secretary outlined the real program of the Obama administration.
In Obama’s view, the best ways to reach the U.S. goals of “independence from Cuban authorities” and “support of their desire to freely determine their country’s future,” is to combine the embargo with other kinds of actions.
This formula has been a mainstay of the U.S. government’s policy on Cuba for the last 55 years, as have successive presidential modifications to the White House policy. With Obama in office, the Cuban Asset Control & Customs & Border Protection regulations now allow: “1) purposeful travel; 2) non-family remittances; and 3) U.S. airports supporting licensed charter flights to and from Cuba.”
Ever since the Cuban revolution, the campaign of subversion against Cuba carried out by consecutive U.S. administrations has included such actions as threats of nuclear annihilation (the Cuban Missile Crisis), promotion of domestic subversion, illegal radio and television broadcasts, infiltration of spies and saboteurs, plans to assassinate Cuban leaders, terrorist activities, biologic warfare, the support of armed counterrevolutionary gangs, giving shelter to incursions of planes and boats coming to Cuba from U.S. territory to carry out aggressions, a campaign of repeated provocations by airplanes coming from the U.S. and so on.
From the very first days of Obama’s presidency, the monopoly controlled media has been filled with stories of Obama’s “openness” towards Cuba and possible plans for lifting the embargo. But the facts show that Obama openly declares that U.S. aims are to overthrow the Cuban government and change Cuba’s economic and social system.
Already Obama has intensified interference and pressure against the Cuban people by aggressively implementing extraterritorial laws and regulations which try to dictate the behavior of the whole world and discourage trade with Cuba. In addition, Obama has intensified a U.S. campaign of subversion.
In one recent example, White House spokesperson Jay Carney admitted that the administration’s rationale for overtly breaking Cuban laws and trying to organize a chauvinist and demagogic twitter campaign was to “strengthen civil society.”
Just like the misinformation campaign in the monopoly controlled media, Obama’s high sounding phrases about “independence from Cuban authorities,” “strengthening civil society,” etc., are meant to divert from the aggressive, anti-people character of the U.S. policy of pressure, interference and subversion against Cuba.
