War V.S. #Cuba / “A Program of Covert Action Against the Castro Regime,” approved on March 17, 1960, by U.S. President Dwight. D. Eisenhower

When we Cubans see our entire country suffer the sustained aggression of another – without as much as a declaration of war – many of us are reminded of fascist practices during World War II, when the most elementary human principles were violated, and expansionist, imperial ambitions were placed above all else.Those of us from younger generations did not experience transcendental battles like Playa Girón, the Missile Crisis, or the Escambray. To us, they are echoes in time, that some, from afar, would like to distort, to deny us valuable lessons. This war against Cuba, in which all kinds of tactics have been tried, touched us more closely when we were children and saw fellow citizens cry with rage and indignation, on television, as they recounted outrages committed by the empire.

We watched a program called “Cuba demanda,” which showed the massive, televised trials, and read the book that detailed with great clarity how many Cubans, regardless of their political positions, were victims of the empire’s rage against our small country, while the aggressors acted with impunity, spreading lies and half-truths about the events.

#Cuba, Reference in Preventing and Treating #Diabetes Via Latin Press


Cuba has been an international reference in the prevention and treatment of diabetes, considered a global catastrophe in health, Ileydis Iglesias, director of the National Institute of Endocrinology, said.

In statements to Prensa Latina, in the context of the 1st International Diabetes Congress taking place at the Conference Center in Havana until May 24, the specialist highlighted that Cuba is the country with the best glycemic control of its patients, the Pan-American Health Organization has acknowledged.

This is possible despite the limitations the nation has such as not having a continuous monitoring blood glucose meter or an insulin infusion pump for patients who do not resolve with multiple injections, because they are devices made with US technology.

The US Department of Defense’s bloated budget, along with CIA venture capital, helped to create tech giants, including Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and PayPal. The government then contracts those companies to help its military and intelligence operations. In doing so, it makes the tech giants even bigger.

In recent years, the traditional banking, energy and industrial Fortune 500 companies have been losing ground to tech giants like Apple and Facebook. But the technology on which they rely emerged from the taxpayer-funded research and development of bygone decades. The internet started as ARPANET, an invention of Honeywell-Raytheon working under a Department of Defense (DoD) contract. The same satellites that enable modern internet communications also enable US jets to bomb their enemies, as does the GPS that enables online retailers to deliver products with pinpoint accuracy. Apple’s touchscreen technology originated as a US Air Force tool. The same drones that record breath-taking video are modified versions of Reapers and Predators.
