On several occasions the propaganda of the United States has said that the blockade against Cuba does not exist.
But life proves exactly the opposite, while Donald Trump announces his intention to reinforce it.
The penultimate evidence was told this Tuesday in Miami by a journalist from El Nuevo Herald, Nora Gámez Torres.
The U.S. government “punished” the Corporation Panamericana S.A., because they helped Cubans alleviate the blockade on the oil supply.
Excuse? Working as intermediary so that certain amounts of that oil reached Cuban territory.
The event was so rude that Gámez Torres commented on the inclusion of that firm in Washington’s blacklist:
“It was executed by the Treasury Department despite being a Cuban company and without justifying it with the “embargo”.
They only grabbed the regulations related to the situation in Venezuela.
Another example, the journalist wrote, how far the Trump administration establishes a link between the two governments.
A statement from the Under Secretary of Treasury, Justin G. Muzinich, states:
"The Treasury continues to pursue evaders of sanctions to deny resources to the illegitimate Venezuelan regime."
On the other hand, the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, at a press conference said on Tuesday that the new punishment ""Today's action will further squeeze the illegal profit-making scheme Cuba carries out to help the illegitimate dictator Nicolas Maduro,".
It was in that context that the Florida senator, Marco Rubio took advantage of Washington's new punishment to demand his European allies to do more in relation to Venezuela and Cuba.
His implicit admission that they don’t, at least, as the rotten Senator Marco Rubio wishes them to do.
By cruel coincidences in life, almost at the same time that Pompeo and his senator spoke in Washington, the young Dylan Cruz died in Colombia.
He had been seriously injured by the police from Iván Duque, faithful allies of Pompeo and Rubio.
He was 18 years old and his deadly sin was to participate in a demonstration against the murderous and pro-North American regime that bleeds his nation.
Last Saturday he was hit on the head by a bomb launched by the police.
He died at the hospital on Monday while Pompeo and Rubio forged new plans against Cuba.
