US Govt Reacts to UN Vote on Cuba

Radio Havana Cuba Viewpoint
11 November 1999

The United States government has now officiallly reacted to its humiliating defeat in the United Nations General Assembly where, for the eighth consecutive time, the international community overwhelmingly adopted a resolution that condemns Washington's blockade against the island.

The U.S. State Department has opened a Web page on the Internet to explain why it maintains its blockade against the Cuban people. It's hard to believe that after 40 years of Revolution and eight years of shameful defeats at the United Nations, Washington will be able to convince anyone of the validity and morality of such aggressions against its small Caribbean neighbor.

It is also widely-known that U.S. President Bill Clinton recently reinforced subversive anti-Cuba broadcasts on what is known as Radio Marti -- an affront to Cuba's National Hero Jose Marti, who strongly criticized the imperialist nature of the United States and its designs on Latin America. This radio station has been transmitting daily since May 20, 1985. The broadcasts are aimed at openly promoting the overthrow of a government that Cubans freely and directly have chosen.

This goes without mentioning the long list of aggressions against the Cuban people over the past 40 years -- organized and financed by the U.S. government, including the U.S. Interests Section in Havana. This office has become a center of conspiracy that attempts to damage the stability of the Cuban government.

If the international community had voted in favor of the United States, a real catastrophe would have fallen on this sovereign country, which only defends its independence and right to exist under the authority of its own people and the system that best suits its national interests.

If the United States government has so many reasons to convince the world of the legitimacy and morality of its anti-Cuba policy, then how is it possible that despite all its might and influence, Washington was unable to gather the necessary votes to stop the resolution condemning its criminal 40-year-old blockade against Cuba?

Once again, U.S. hypocrisy has been unmasked and its attempts to isolate Cuba have actually backfired and isolated Washington.
