The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Articles of Reflections by Fidel
Maybe the empire thought that we would not honor our word when, during days of uncertainty in the past century, we affirmed that even if the USSR were to disappear Cuba would continue struggling. World War II broke out on September 1, 1939 when Nazi-fascist troops invaded Poland and struck like a lightning over the heroic people of the USSR, who contributed 27 million lives to preserve mankind from that brutal massacre that ended the lives of 50 million persons.
In our times, our species hardly spend ten or fifteen years without facing a true risk of disappearing. Neither Obama nor anybody else could ensure otherwise. I say this from a realistic perspective, since only the truth could offer to us a little more wellbeing and a breath of hope. We have come of age when it comes to knowledge. We have no right to deceive others or ourselves.
A few days ago I referred to the great challenges humankind is facing today. Intelligent life has been on our planet for around 200,000 years, unless some new discoveries show otherwise. Not to confuse the existence of intelligent life with the existence of life itself which, from its elementary forms in our solar system, came into being millions of years ago.
I respect all religions even though I do not profess them. Human beings, from the most ignorant to the wisest, are looking for an explanation for their own existence.
The things that the yogi can do with the human body escape our imagination. They are right there, before our eyes, in the images that reach us immediately from a long distance through the TV program Pasaje a lo Desconocido (Passage to the Unknown).
The conditions have been created for the country to start the mass production of moringa oleifera and mulberry, which are inexhaustible sources of meat; milk and eggs; silk fibres that can be spun using traditional methods and also allow for the creation of jobs that can be performed in the shade and are appropriately remunerated, regardless of age or sex.
To your health, Guevara! Or better still, from the very depths of the Americas: Wait for us! We will depart with you. We want to die so as to live as you have died; and live as you live on.
He professed to be a wise man, and in fact he was. But he made a little mistake. “Cuba must be punished”, he said one day. Our country had never even pronounced his name. It was an absolutely unwarranted offence.
His prestige is gaining strength as an example of Cuba’s great sporting figures. His age and health portray him as the ideal prototype to preside over the Cuban Olympic Committee. Such predictions seem to be right!
Stevenson has left us. The news arrived yesterday after 4:00 p.m. No other amateur boxer shone so much in the history of that sport. He could have achieved another two Olympic titles hadn’t it been for certain duties that the principles of internationalism imposed on the Revolution. No money in the world would have been enough to bribe Stevenson. Glory be to his memory forever!
