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
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

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.
