*** For 60 Years, Socialism Has Not Changed on The Island
*** CARTER And OBAMA Had Other Political Criterion
*** ALEXANDRIA Reject The Embargo, For Absurd

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS.- “…Just a ‘Blind’ Man, cannot see what is happening in the international arena, and on the island of Cuba,” Geopoliticians estimate in the world.
In 60 years, a select group of ultra-conservatives who take over ‘The White House’ in U.S. preserves the idea, that by means of the economic embargo imposed on Cuba, the government could be brought to its knees before them. Time goes by and nothing like that happens.
Regarding the ‘Cuba Case’, there is no uniform political criterion in the U.S., experts say. And They comment: Two Presidents who within their administrations maintained a different approach were: JAMES CARTER in 1977-1981, and BARACK OBAMA, in 2008 to 2016.
Before leaving the U.S. White House, President DONALD TRUMP announced new Cuba-related sanctions that will prohibit Americans staying in Cuban government-owned places, and further restrict the importation of Cuban cigars and liquor.
On 23 June past, the United Nations General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to condemn the embargo on Cuba.The resolution rejecting obtained 184 votes in favor, two against (United States and Israel) and three abstentions (Colombia, Brazil and Ukraine).
In fact, Biden’s representatives voted against this resolution, a strategy similar to that of President Donald Trump. Different from that of Barack Obama, who chose to abstain, in his administration.
During the session, the representatives of the States that took the floor reiterated the urgency of putting an end to the U.S. embargo on Cuba. Particularly, in view of the emergency the world is experiencing in the face of the COVID-19.
The Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, BRUNO RODRIGUEZ, present in the room, stated in the debate that preceded the vote that the blockade is a massive, flagrant and systematic violation of the human rights of the Cuban people.
For BRUNO RODRIGUEZ , the negative repercussions on the Cuban people are more than evident, in these times of a pandemic. The dire consequences are looming and, according to the Geneva Convention of 1948, “constitutes an act of genocide”.
It is, he said, “an economic war of extraterritorial scope against a small country already affected in the recent period by the recession and the global economic crisis caused by the pandemic, which has deprived us of indispensable revenues such as those derived from tourism”.
Democratic Congresswoman ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ criticized U.S. President JOE BIDEN on Thursday for his defense of the embargo on Cuba, which she defined as absurd and intentionally cruel.
“…The embargo is absurdly cruel and, like so many other U.S. policies aimed at Latin America, cruelty is the point,” the congresswoman stated in a statement.
“I roundly reject,” she added, “the Biden Administration’s defense of the embargo. It is never acceptable that we use cruelty as a mechanism of pressure against a people”.
One of the party’s most popular figures, The New York legislator maintained that the embargo, which has lasted sixty years, is “the United States’ contribution to Cuba’s suffering”.
OCASIO-CORTEZ recalled that last month the United Nations once again voted “overwhelmingly” in favor of lifting the U.S. blockade of the Caribbean island, an annual resolution that Washington ignores.
The Intention of this ultra-conservative sector of the US is very clear, since they imposed the embargo on the island of CUBA: to change the socialism inherited by Commander FIDEL CASTRO, for a capitalism. But, the average taxation for 60 years, simply does not work.
In today’s world, the only country that practices socialism with its own characteristics is China. As admitted by the Chinese President XI JINPING. Which give social results of great benefits to the people of the dragon that current political system.
Cuba and China are socialist systems, which are easy for political philosophers to demonize, but China has recently finished winning the trade war against the experienced former President DONALD TRUMP, a judgment reported in the US press.
At the rate China is going, it will soon dominate the world economy, according to international financial experts. What’s wrong with a socialist system practiced by China, which coexists with global transnational corporations, but not forgets that the main beneficiary is the people,? ask.
Not Forget ‘Friends’ Readers of The UNIVERSE: “…If you talk about yourself and your past. You are an easy target for anyone, to become a man to water, without a life preserver. Evil could haunt you permanently, and harm you severely.”
“…Silence is one of the greatest virtues that the human being could resort to. It is also equivalent to a great sense of humility. In it one can have a quiet and untroubled life.”…See You Soon in ‘The UNIVERSE News, and EL UNIVERSO’.
