We will depart with you. More...

Deng Xiaoping

He professed to be a wise man, and in fact he was.  But he made a little mistake.
“Cuba must be punished”, he said one day. More...

Alberto Juantorena

His prestige is gaining strength as an example of Cuba’s great sporting figures.  His age and health portray him as the ideal prototype to preside over the Cuban Olympic Committee. More...

Teófilo Stevenson

Stevenson has left us. The news arrived yesterday after 4:00 p.m. No other amateur boxer shone so much in the history of that sport. More...

An Honest Clarification

Some days ago, on May 28, the violent battle waged at El Uvero was commemorated with well deserved references. An elemental duty forces me to clarify the facts.
 During those weeks, Manuel Piñeiro, “Red Beard”, as the leopard, who never changes its spots, as the saying goes, managed to send to Santiago de Cuba a truckload of weapons that were associated to the attack against the Presidential Palace by the Revolutionary Directorate. More...

The Horrible Things the Empire Offers Us

A piece of news released by AP, the most important US news agency, dated today in Monterrey, Mexico, explains it with irrefutable clarity.  This is not the first, and certainly it won’t be the last, about a reality that puts paid to the mountain of lies with which the United States intends to justify the inhuman destiny it reserves for the peoples of our America. More...

The 67th Anniversary of the Victory over Nazi-Fascism

 No political event can be judged outside of the era and the circumstances in which it took place. No one even knows one percent of the fabulous history of Man; but thanks to history, we know about occurrences that go beyond the limits of the imaginable. More...

The Nobel Peace Laureate

I will hardly refer to the Cuban people, who one day rid their country of the United States domain, when the imperialist system had reached the height of its power. More...

What Obama Knows
 The most demolishing article I have seen nowadays about Latin America was written by Renán Vega Cantor, full professor at the National Pedagogical University of Bogotá, which was published three days ago by the website ‘Rebelión’ under the title “Ecos de la Cumbre de las Américas” (Echoes of the Summit of the Americas).

To Sleep with Open Eyes

I took a good look at Obama in the famous “Summit Meeting”. Sometimes he was overcome by tiredness, he unwillingly shut his eyes but, at times, he slept with open eyes.More...

Sweetened Realities that Fade Away
I was surprised today when I listened to the speech delivered by Jose Miguel Insulza in Cartagena. I thought that the person who was speaking on behalf of the OAS would at least claim some respect for the sovereignty of the peoples of this hemisphere which were for years colonized and cruelly exploited by colonial powers. More...

The Summit of the Guayaberas
 Obama, the first black president of the United States –who is, without any doubt, and intelligent, well educated and eloquent person-, made quite a few people believe that he was an emulator of Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King. More...

Stephen Harper’s Illusions
I think –and I do not intend to offend anyone- that this is how the Prime Minister of Canada is called.  I deduced it from a statement published on “Holy Wednesday” by a spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry of that country. The   United Nations Organization membership is made up by almost 200 States –allegedly independent States.  They continuously change or are forced into change.  Many of their representatives are honorable persons, friends of Cuba; but it is impossible to remember the specifics about each and every one of them. More...

BOLIVIA,  April 4, 2012.- The book “Fidel: Warrior of the Time”, about the life of the leader of the Cuban Revolution , was presented yesterday at the Palace of the Government of Bolivia, with the presence of Evo Morales and renowned personalities. More...

The Wonderful World of Capitalism

The search for the political truth will always be a difficult task even in our times, when science has placed in our hands a huge amount of knowledge. One of the most important was the possibility to know and study the fabulous power of the energy contained in matter. More...

The Need to Enrich our Knowledge

The filmed scenes of the massacre in Libya, starting to be seen, offend for their total absence of humanism and the crass lies that served as an excuse for invading and taking over the natural resources of that country. More...

The Hard Times Facing Humanity

The world is ever more misinformed in the midst of a turmoil of events that occur at a speed never before expected. Those of us who have lived a few more years and experienced a certain eagerness for information can attest to the amount of ignorance with which we used to approach facts. More...

The Roads Leading to Disaster

This Reflection could be written today, tomorrow or any other day without any risk of being mistaken. Our species is confronting new problems. When I stated 20 years ago at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, that a species was in danger of extinction, I had fewer reasons than today to warn of a danger, one which could perhaps be perceived as 100 years distant. At that time, a few leaders of the most powerful countries were managing the world. They applauded my words out of mere courtesy and placidly continued digging our species’ grave. More...

"He is the Same Fidel as Always"
By Arleen Rodríguez and Rosa Miriam Elizalde
HAVANA, February 13, 2012.- Nine hours of conversation, with two brief recesses. This can be said quickly, but anyone who has followed the leader of the Cuban Revolution during the last 50 years knows that these 540 minutes presuppose the intensity of a number of libraries and a lasting emotional charge, which will not be forgotten by those who experienced it. More...

The fruit which did not fall

CUBA was forced to fight for its existence facing an expansionist power, located a few miles from its coast, and which was proclaiming the annexation of our island, which was destined to fall into its lap like a ripe fruit. We were condemned not to exist as a nation. More...

World Peace Hanging by a Thread

Yesterday I had the pleasure of conversing leisurely with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I hadn’t seem him since September of 2006, more than five years ago, when he visited our country to participate in the 14th Non-Aligned Movement Summit which took place in Havana, when Cuba was elected for a second time to the Presidency of this organization for a three year term. More...

The Best President for the United States
 A well-known European news agency yesterday published from Sydney, Australia that a group of Australian researchers at the University of New South Wales announced the creation of an electrical cable ten thousand times thinner than a strand of hair, capable of carrying as much electricity as a traditional copper cable. More...

The March Towards the Abyss

It is not a matter of being optimistic or pessimistic, knowing or not knowing elementary things, of being responsible or not for events. Those who would like to be thought of as politicians should be thrown onto the trash heap of history when, as the norm goes, they have no idea about everything or almost everything related to it in that activity. More...

More...

Genocidal Cynicism (Part II and final)

In order to give an idea of the potential of the USSR in its efforts to maintain parity with the United States in this sphere, we only need to point out that when its disintegration occurred in 1991, in Byelorussia there were 81 nuclear warheads, in Kazakhstan 1400 and in the Ukraine approximately 5000; all these went over to the Russian Federation, the only state capable of sustaining its immense cost, in order to maintain independence. More...

Genocidal Cynism (Part 1)
No sane person, especially someone who has had access to the elementary knowledge acquired in primary school, would agree that our species, especially those who are children, teenagers or youth, should be deprived of the right to live, today, tomorrow and forever.  Never have human beings, throughout their eventful history, as persons endowed with intelligence, ever heard of an experience like that.  More...

The Overwhelming Victory of Daniel and the FSLN

On Sunday, November 6, 72 hours ago, there was a general election in which Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega and the FSLN won an overwhelming victory. More...

NATO’s Genocidal Role (Part Five)

On March 9th this year, under the title of “NATO, War, Lies and Business”, I published a new Reflection about the role of that warlike organization. More...

The Exploits in Guadalajara

I am taking a brief pause in my political analyses to dedicate this space to the exploits of our Cuban athletes at the Sixteenth Pan-American Games.
The Olympic Games and the international sports competitions revolving around them and which arouse such interest for billions of persons, have a beautiful history that should be remembered not for having been abused. More...

NATOS’s Genocidal Role (Part IV)

On March 2nd, under the title of “NATO’s Inevitable War” I wrote:
“In contrast with what is happening in Egypt and Tunisia, Libya occupies the first spot on the Human Development Index for Africa and it has the highest life expectancy on the continent.  Education and health receive special attention from the State.  The cultural level of its population is without a doubt the highest.  Its problems are of a different sort. […] The country needed an abundant foreign labour force to carry out ambitious plans for production and social development.” More...

NATO´s  Genocidal Role (III part)

In February 23, with the title “Cynicism Danse Macabre”, I expressed:
The policy of plundering imposed by the United States and their NATO allies in the Middle East has gone into a crisis. More...

NATO’s genocidal role  (Part II)
A little more than eight months ago, on February 21 of this year, I affirmed with full conviction, "NATO’s plan is to occupy Libya." Under this title I addressed the issue for the first time in a Reflection the content of which appeared to be pure fantasy.More...
NATO's Genocidal Role (Part I)
THIS brutal military alliance has become the most perfidious tool of repression known in the history of humanity.
NATO assumed this global repressive role as soon as the USSR, which had served as the U.S. pretext for its creation, disappeared. Its criminal purpose became obvious in Serbia, a country of Slavic origin, whose people heroically struggled against the Nazis during World War II. More...

The two Venezuelas
Yesterday I spoke of the Venezuela allied with the empire, where Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch organized the brutal in-flight explosion of a Cubana aircraft, which led to the death and disappearance of all its passengers, including the juvenile fencing team which had won all the gold medals at the Central American and Caribbean Championship hosted by that country, sadly recalled now with the Pan American Games in Guadalajara. More...

A will of iron   (Part 2and final)
When, in 1976, the most serious terrorist acts were committed against Cuba, in particular the in-flight sabotage of a Cuban airliner which had departed from Barbados with 73 persons aboard – among them pilots, flight attendants and auxiliary personnel offering their services to the airline, the complete juvenile fencing team which had won all the gold medals contested in the Central American and Caribbean Championship, Cuban passengers and those from other countries who had confidence in that plane. More...

Will of iron (Part 1)
Granma and Juventud Rebelde, the Party and the [Communist] Youth's press, published two days ago – Friday, October 14 – a valiant and forceful message to the people of Cuba from Hero of the Republic René González, upon completing his vengeful and unjust sentence of 13 years, alone, like the other four heroes serving longer terms in prisons hundreds of thousands of miles distant from each other. The implacable resolve of each one of them has never failed for one instant, even when they were repeatedly sent to punishment cells – veritable tombs – without any space in which to move around, whenever "yankee justice" decided, without any crime or evidence whatsoever. If that "justice" got one thing right it was in its selection of the kind of men that they were punishing. More...

Obama´s Supervised Shame

Not because it was brutal or clumsy or anticipated was there any less indignation about the Yankee judge from the South Florida District denying René González, the Cuban anti-terrorist hero, the right to return to the heart of his family in Cuba after having served the unfair sentence imposed on him. More...

Chávez, Evo and Obama (Part 2 and final)

If our Nobel Prize winner is deceiving himself – something that has yet to be established – that perhaps explains the incredible contradictions in his reasoning and the confusion sowed among his listeners. More...

Chávez, Evo and Obama

I am halting the tasks which have been totally occupying my time recently to dedicate some words to the singular opportunity presented to political science by the 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly. More...

The Unsustainable Position of the Empire

Nobody can assure us that in its agony, the empire won’t be dragging human beings down to catastrophe.
