The announcement made by the United States government of its designation of Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism, serves as another resounding confirmation of how imperialism uses lies whenever it serves their purposes, be they political, economic, or of any other nature.
The infamous decision was condemned on Twitter by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, who described it as cynical and hypocritical.
“The political opportunism behind this action is recognized by all who are honestly concerned about the scourge of terrorism and its victims,” stated Rodríguez, also a member of the Communist Party of Cuba’s Political Bureau.
The serious accusation made by the Trump administration further discredits its immoral foreign policy, precisely at a time when the country is experiencing its open disregard for human life.
The country’s leaders who have arrogantly mounted this farce are, at the same time, promoting political extremism and encouraging armed protesters to storm public institutions; subordinating the population’s health to the market, in times of pandemic, exposing citizens to infection and death; selectively murdering, beyond the borders of their nation, those they consider enemies; and abstaining in complicit silence from condemning the assault rifle attack on the Washington embassy of the country they now shamelessly accuse of terrorism and attempt to subjugate with a blockade, using hunger and hardship to force a surrender.
The United States, the world’s most violent terrorist, describes as a state sponsor of such brutality the nation that send doctors around the world to contribute to saving lives in the battle against COVID-19. The facts reveal that imperialism has no shame.
