Original Post: Lord Save my Children ! by Michael L. Winston

R-S Marco Rubio, has directly and publicly encouraged the Venezuelan military to carry out an uprising.

On February 28, he did it again in an opinion piece published in El Nuevo Herald. “The Venezuelan military, with popular support, can put an end to this dictatorship and restore freedom, dignity and the right of the people to govern themselves. If they decide to do it, I think they will enjoy enormous support from the United States and other free countries, ” Rubio wrote in the midst of a crisis scenario in the American Union, the strong support of the American extreme right to the purchase and use of firearms and the authorization of teachers to carry them to control a possible student uprising. Honestly, the most permissive law in the Americas allows any student-age youth to become an aggressive student and even be labeled a serial killer.

Topics:

  • At age 16 you have the age to buy a gun, but not to drink a beer.
  • Rubio’s thought shows his most furious intention: to manipulate public opinion.

A new survey of recent US travelers to Cuba finds it is among the safest destinations in the world to visit. The survey of US travelers who visited the island in 2017 and 2018, conducted by Cuba Educational Travel, found that those surveyed felt safe in Cuba, and believe that there is limited risk to travelers. They also believe that the country is well prepared to respond to environmental, health and crime related situations. These travelers with firsthand experience on the island overwhelmingly recommend visiting.

The survey of 462 recent US travelers to Cuba found:
