Critics Cry Foul as Castro Demands Gitmo’s Return Plus Damages – Washington Examiner … “Opponents of President Obama’s steps to normalize relations with Cuba seized on news that Cuban President Raul Castro is demanding the return of the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay as more evidence that it was a bad deal from the start. Cuban-American Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., a staunch opponent of Obama’s new détente with the Cuban government, accused Fidel and Raul Castro of pushing the deal as far as they could without offering human-rights concessions or reparations for property the Cuban government has seized over the years.”
“The Associated Press reported late Wednesday afternoon that the Cuban president demanded that the U.S. return the base at Guantanamo, lift the half-century trade embargo and compensate the island country for damages as a pre-condition to moving forward with re-establishing diplomatic relations. ‘The Castro brothers, once again, have made their intent toward the United States clear: They plan to use the Iranian playbook in an attempt to extort concessions from the Obama administration in exchange for nothing,’ she said Wednesday evening.”
COMMENT: You could just see this demand coming, and so could any reasonable non-community agitator, if he weren’t so blinded by his destructive missions and thirst for any lasting legacy, no matter the cost.
Jindal Warns of Islamic ‘Colonization,’ ‘Invasion’ of U.S. – Breitbart … “‘[O]ne of the great (things) about America is it doesn’t matter if you’ve been here five minutes or a hundred years, we have folks that come here, want to be Americans,’ Jindal said. ‘They join our military, they start companies, they work to create a better community. And that’s wonderful. What’s not acceptable is people that want to come and conquer us. That’s not immigration, by the way, that’s colonization.'”
“If someone wants to come here and change our fundamental culture and our values. If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration, that’s really invasion — if you’re honest about it. Of course, the politically correct crowd when you say things like they’ll call you racist — but this is a particular threat we face.”
