U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin informed on Tuesday they further tightened up the strong siege on Cuba.
They imposed it (the blockade) in early February 1962 and then had only introduced changes to make it more harmful.
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) began its rejection with 59 votes and has remained with the vote of almost all of its members.
Now, Mnuchin announced that the educational and cultural group trips of Americans to the Caribbean nation were banned.
They also banned visits to Cuba via passenger and recreational vessels, including cruise ships and yachts, and private and corporate aircraft.
“Cuba plays a destabilizing role in the Western Hemisphere, provides a foothold in the region,” added Mnuchin.
But the Secretary of the Treasury didn’t stop, he went on to say:
“Cuba props up U.S. adversaries like Venezuela and Nicaragua, fomenting instability and undermining the rule of law”.
Then he commented: “This government has made a strategic decision to reverse the loosening of sanctions on Cuban regime”.
And he concluded repeating an old script:
“These actions will help keep US dollars out of the hands of Cuban military, intelligence and security services”.
In addition, they restricted the so-called “people-to-people” travels, why are they trying to reduce them to the minimum?
The fact is that such dinosaurs as Trump, John Bolton, Elliot Abrams and Marco Rubio are unable to resist any exchange of ideas.
The links between Havana and Venezuela upset them a lot, but they idolize the bonds they keep with two sinister figures, ruling Brazil and Argentina.
And what to say about the vast scorn that, in general sense, comes up towards the private sector in Cuba?
They confirm it now by banning the sale of private vessels to their Antillean neighbor.
In short, the witches lurking around the White House are on the loose, they do not understand they only exacerbate hatred and the spirit of resistance against them.
